What Causes More Violent Crimes?


A Gun? A Knife? A home made Bomb?


Or the Unbridled Lust of the Nation that is saturated with Violent Video Games, Telivision Programming and other forms of Violent Media Coverage that Bends peoples minds toward paths of violence… Using any tool they can find (legal or illegal) to slaughter innocent people…


I for one am sick of hearing about the “Need of more Gun Control” from people who are Deliberately Silent on Violent Programming.


It is Not time to Disarm the people so that we cannot defend ourselves or our families…

It is time to turn around the cycles of Violence that are formed from a society that Glorifies Violence and killing in the Media.

Guns are not alive.. they do not have brains and cannot shoot of their own volition. People use guns.. for good or for bad. To Protect their families from intruders... or to murder the innocent victims. Unlike Guns which have no brains... People do have brains... and Brains, like any other form of Computer are "Programmable". Unlike the computer you type on however the Human Brain is Primarily programmed by the senses of sight and sounds. If we as a society allow the media to "Program our Children with Violence" through the Merchandising of Media.. and that programming combined with other stimuli (like alcohol and other drugs) results in the death of innocent people... then We as a society are to blame for not putting a leash and muzzle on the runaway media.

Gun Registrations and Bans are nothing more than a Scapegoat... a Diversionary Tactic to pacify the populace while the real culprits who are making the money on Violent Media are free to ply their trade and continue making money on the violence.

Back up... take a look at the larger picture.

      What are guns for? Killing, that's what they are made for, and that's the only thing.

      So in a society where possession of firearms is normalized, and not controlled, some of them are bound to get into the hands of people whose lines between fiction and reality are blurred.

      I prefer the English system, where possession of guns has to be licensed. Even so, there are occasional shooting tragedies, but certainly less per capita than in USA.

      This hub makes a lot of sense to me. Even in children's shows, movies, video games. There is so much violence. Not physical violence. The people in the movies, are always using guns, bombs. Even in video games the children play, they are shooting each other. They get points each time the bullet hits someone. Maybe we can slow down on violence in our movies, videos, and even regular television shows like NCSI.

      Will that ever work? I don't know.

      Great hub.

      Voted up.

      Yes, MrMaranatha, I take your point, and I have been concerned for years at the amount of violence in the media, so that it has become normalized, even for my children's generation, but much more so for my grandchildren's generation.

      But, whereas I agree that guns are merely the instrument, and it is people who control them, you must surely admit that there will always be some disturbed people who should not ever be in possession of firearms, either because they cannot control their violent temper or outbursts, or because they suffer paranoid delusions or are genetic psychopaths, i.e. they are not necessarily merely programmed to violence by the media, but have a violent disposition to start with.

      Your Right Dianna... And we will always have some lunatic with Homicidal Tenancies using tools to kill people... and since Guns are the tool of choice they will normally gravitate towards some form of firearm... But do you know how easy it is to get a hold of a gun without proper registration? For people who are already involved in crime it is Easier than you or I can get one... Lets see now... Last time I bought a new weapon... Pistol... For me to get that New firearm in the USA It took filling out a form and then the store ran my name and Identification Card though the Fed Data Base to see if I had any previous criminal record... after awhile I was cleared and could take home my gun... In some cases there is a 7 day cooling off period...

      Now Compare that to a Criminal... who goes to his drug dealer and hands him the cash and walks out with a gun... ANY GUN... Legal or Not Legal... Criminals can get their hands on stuff that the Law abiding citizens only wish we could own... Illegal? Yes they would use Illegal weapons... Why not? They are already planning illegal activity.. why not use any weapon they want? What are the police going to do about it? Give them 5 more years on top of their multiple murder charge, life sentences for use of an illegal weapon?

      Criminals will get and use guns even after the rest of us have been stripped naked and tied to the trees.
