We talk about the NRA, but let’s face it, the entertainment industry racks up billions of dollars every year promoting gun violence. In addition, businesses spend millions of their advertising bucks for product placement in these movies, TV shows, and video games. Clearly, the industry has a major influence on the way we view things. It also means that we have the power to control it — if we have the guts to. When we got serious about curbing smoking, we banned TV commercials for Big Tobacco. We used to control — at least before the internet age — people’s access to pornography to avoid objectifying women which could lead to sexual assaults for some guys. But when it comes to curbing gun violence, there’s NOTHING we can do beyond universal background checks???!? How about banning gun violence on TV shows, movies, and especially video games? Think about it: we train people via video games to feel what it’s like to become a mass shooter from an early age and then stop and wonder why in the world some crazies do it in real life? Duh.
