15. Furthermore they need to prove that this activity
causes more violence than ANY OTHER normally acceptable activity for any age group given.

Remember the kids in HS football that were juicing...hell even a few that weren't? I seem to remember them being violent at parties, toward girlfriends, and even getting away with violence in school due to their 'social standing'.

Simply pointing out one or two cases of violence in gamers whereas as a whole the lot of us are significantly LESS PRONE TO VIOLENT acts than people with other more 'socially acceptable' hobbies.
