    Default Connecticut Town Out Collecting And Destroying Games

    We are all aware of the horrible incident that took place in Newtown, Conn. that lead to the death of 20 children and 6 adults.

    So the authorities in a nearby town of Southington decided to collect and destroy violent video games...
    Volunteers will assemble at Southington Drive-In to collect any violent video-game that parents or children want to give away which will later on be destroyed, most probably by incineration in exchange for gift certificates at local restaurants, amusement parks and bowling alleys.
    Local authorities suggest that the massacre occurred due to influence from violence in modern video-games, so the best way to avoid disasters like this in the future is to destroy them. And in exchange the gift certificates will increase time spent with family and to do more "resourceful" things.
    Director of community services Susan Saucier says, "We're not saying the use of video games causes people to become murderers, but there's evidence that it causes increases in aggressiveness, fear, anxiety and desensitization about actions of violence".
    National Rifle Association vice president Wayne LaPierre said at a press conference last month that violent video games like Bulletstorm and Mortal Kombat were partially to blame for December 14's deadly shooting in Connecticut.
    There has been no news of the same action being taken against books, because god forbid books induce violence. Only crazy people burn books.

    So, What are your thoughts on this?

    Stupid and most games are digital nowadays, so best of luck with that.

    Video games should be the least of their concern. While it really is a potential candidate, American kids have access to way more ¤¤¤¤ that does more harm.

    They allow keeping weapons/rifles(sometimes without license), they allow violent and pornografic movies, they (unofficially) allow drugs,
    and blame video games for violence.

    Where do they unofficially allow drugs?

    I approve of owning guns really, as long as there are thorough checks in place and subsequent evaluations are done throughout the holder's lifetime, especially after he has some sort of crisis (accident, financial etc).
