That's right. The NRA points to 1992's Mortal Kombat, 1997's Grand Theft Auto, and 1988's Splatterhouse. Sure these titles have been remade as recently as 2010 but the NRA fails to understand one simple fact - video games are not responsible for these acts of violence. How would the NRA explain shootings that happened before the era of graphic video games? Did Donkey Kong make those people do it?
And the NRA's solution? More guns.
That's right. The lobbying giant that represents gun owners wants to increase their membership, and subsequently their lobbying power so they are promoting greater gun usage to prevent gun crimes. This line of reasoning is very reactionary. Instead of preventing these crimes and finding the root cause, the NRA just wants to put guns into more hands and hopes that when someone starts killing people there is a armed civilian around to try and prevent that, and as we have witnessed over the years that is not the case.
