Is it just me, or is it amazingly hypocritical to hold video games accountable for school violence when you’ve accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in political contributions from the gun lobby? That’s John Ashcroft for you. To oversimplify the situation, what do you think would be more likely to curtail school shootings: preventing kids from playing video games or preventing kids from getting ahold of guns? I’m no Second Amendment basher, but seeing conservatives who are big proponents of gun ownership (and big clients of the gun lobby) seek to curtail other freedoms in order to reduce violence even as they oppose any restricitions on Second Amendment freedoms makes me see red.
