Food for thought - vid games.
There is some recent further news discussion about video games and their possible influence over the young re violence.
I have mostly been against any ''nanny'' limitations, on about anything but - I have begun to wonder whether some kids, maybe those bereft of halfways decent parenting perhaps - are influenced, sufficient to make them think that shooting someone is ''cool'' and not being cognisant of what a shooting actually does, let alone risk to themselves.
On a game screen - everything is pretty bloodless, tho I guess seeing bad guys wiped out does have its attractions! :smile: But I do have some concerns and wonder if just maybe one of us might have to encounter a ''games freak kid'' one day - who thinks a shooting match is fun - and we in response to protect ourselves do what we have trained to do!
Most kids from ''decent'' backgrounds do I am sure manage to differentiate - and know right from wrong and can separate the fantasy world of games from real life. It is the few I more concerned with. I don't know what the ideal answer is because I am against any restrictions by state or at Federal level - we lose enough freedoms as it is.
Just thinking on this and throwing it open for general opinions.
