You've summed it up well with this answer.
Ahem. Japan. They have the same media we have (and much more, too), but also have extremely restricting gun laws, and extremely minimal cases of violent crime. What now?
Well, the organized crime in Japan is an interesting study that plays a huge part in that unique society's reported criminal activity. There is quite a meaningful debate going re the use of criminals by organized crime groups.
Australia provides with another proof on how restricting guns can help stop incidents of mass shooting. They have a very similar society and media too.
Glorifying violence is a real problem, especially in the disconnected world of entertainment that increases the mindset of lack of regard for life.
And the news! They repeat everything titillating, just to get a rise. They like it when everyone's glued to the set, waiting on latest blood and gore. Meanwhile, these are people's loved ones. BANG . Over. Forever.
Cst LA vie?? I don't think so!
