a former teacher I know that studies do strongly indicate that violent vIdeo games do promote violence (making people more used to violence) tho this infuriates gamers). I moved to Phoenix from LA where attitudes towards gun control are very different. Here they even have concealed carry permits. It has been a good learning experience for me to remember how American history comes into play on this subject. I myself feel safer without guns, and hope that everyone uses their best thinking in deciding whether or not they have the self control necessary to own them.


I too feel like that video games have led to violence becoming more commonplace.

I guess the reason I started seeing firearms as a means to defend myself is due to my educational background. Studying criminal justice for five years can be a real eye opener into the nature some people have. Plus when you talk about crimes committed with firearms pretty all day in classrooms one would get rather paranoid. Even though the US is currently experiencing the lowest crime rate it has ever had. Though the news media would leave one to believe otherwise.

I guess the crime rate is low because the economy has been good for a long time. There are lots of jobs in criminal justice. You would probably be a good 911 dispatcher with your training, and there must be many other opportunities. Would you consider pursuing something in the criminal justice field?

Even though I do not own a gun and probably never will I wouldn't want to infringe on someone elses' right to own one.
