After the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., there is again more talk on gun control.
Gun control will not keep guns out of the bad guys hands. They will always find a way.
For the record, I am not a member of the NRA, nor do I own a gun. Gun control takes a little bit of freedom away from the American people. The real issue/problem is being overlooked — if we want to reduce the mass killings, then outlaw the violent and graphic video games.
These young kids who commit murder think it is just a game. They have no value of human life. The games take it all away.
As a kid, I played with toy guns and watched westerns on TV. They did not turn me into a killer, but the games now are nothing but bloody violence and rob the youth of responsible reality.
