Elizabeth Warren and the NRA, are they really opposites?

We are getting material that Elizabeth Warren says that the NRA is opposed to research which I strongly doubted. Scrawl up after my comment below,

At least some in the 2nd amendment lobby movement worries about the overwhelmingness of violent video-game addiction, and why would they not want further investigation?


Gun Violence, War, and War Video Simulations

Written by Richard Kane

There are two antiwar movements the Give peace a chance movement, and the Libertarian one. Whatever benefit is gained in infringing on the Second Amendment is lost from the way it lessens the antiwar clout.

It doesn’t take gun culture to get some of us to kill, Chimps do it and a few badly traumatized Bonobo monkey orphans, separated from their culture.

When it comes to humans there has been a dramatic hardly noticed shift since World War II. A particularly meticulous general, General Marshal, reported back that 80 percent of the soldiers never directly shot at an enemy face or body. They would carry ammunition, even risk death in a heroic mission to pull a wounded comrade out of direct fire but still not fire directly at a human being. Then came video training and civilian videos and now a perhaps 60% to 90 % increase (statistics are rough estimates) in increases in direct combat killings, and veteran suicides, and murders. Since in the old days people fell on a gun or more often than today officially accidentally shot a friend, good statistics are a problem,
The change today,

I wonder if old-fashioned war nurses that never fired or trained with guns had much less suicides or those especially Seven Day Adventists drafted 1-A-0 not 1-A during Vietnam and before ended up with far less suicides. Back before Vietnam, I dreamed of becoming a heroic Male War Nurse with the Seven Day Adventist I AO draftees. Research on traumatized Seven Day Adventist non-combatants is needed when understanding how war training, war, suicides and murder relate

"violent video-game addiction"

Give me a break.

The word addiction is thrown around today, like it was free acid at Woodstock.

Even if people were "addicted" to violent video games, what right do you have to prevent people from playing them.

Adam Lanza was a 20 year old

Perhaps he had a right to starve while playing call of action, So maybe does a 20 year old to get a blood clot even though his goal in life was a high paid job as a game designer

Adam Lanza drank water...

so drinking water must make people into spree killers too, right?

Correlation does not prove causation.

Should young children be prevented especially since one 46 year

One 46 year old man found the bragging little brat that kept beating him in Call of Duty and choked the child,


Actually, since people with old fashioned TV addiction freshened up and often moved a little during commercials I would like to try a public service message or ad every 15 minutes before banning all but al Qaeda use off Western violent video

A deranged man attacks a child...

so video games must have made him do it, right?

It's the same irrational argument that gun grabbers use, with one exception the game wasn't even used in commission of the crime, making the argument even more faulty.

It's up to a child's parents if they can play video games or not, it's not up to nanny statists like you or anyone else.

People want some change

The Capitol Beltway sniper attacks had nothing to do with a gun free zone.

Demanding and end to gun free zones to stop gun violence presumes that an incident wont get in the way of that accretion
