I can oly give my view two items. The high gun deaths and the modern music one.
With the gun deaths its pretty simple, the USA has less gun laws than other naitons and it is easier to get a gun than say Spain.
With modern music. I blame it on creating more violent and abusive kids. Marylin Manson should be shot. His crap that he puts out is so sicking and violent its no wonder why he has'nt killde anyone yet. But not many kids listen to Manson (Thank God!). More kids listen to rap. Eminem is a prime example of creating more angry kids. Eminem's music should be banned from the airways and his albums should be restricted from stores nation wide. Why? The music he puts out is garbage.
Because of him children as young as 9 are calling other children "bitches and 'hos". Why? Its the music they listen to! Eminem's message in his music is simple. He's saying he hates his mom he wants to kill her, which I might add he does graphicly in his songs. He saying he hates his wife she's a 'ho. He sings about rape and killing homosexuals at kinife point. Any more infoor if you disgree please U2U me with you response.

The blame of music and video games on violence is sheer ignorance. I've listened to all the "devil" music and I've played all the violent video games. Have you ever seen what people in Japan watch or play. Anime is some of the most violent stuff I've ever seen, they even have little girls getting raped but it's perfectly fine since it is a cartoon. I remember a while back reading articles saying that some company's won't release games stateside because of their fear of how the public will handle it.
Using music as an excuse is just a scapegoat for society. Society has been blaming problems on musicians since The Beatles, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd etc etc etc. Marilyn Manson is a shock artist, he is just like eminem in the fact that he likes to raise controversy. They both exceed because people buy into their facade. Frankly, it's a personal choice of what you listen to or watch or play, but in no way should I be told what to do as far as that goes.
Now excuse me I'm gonna go slit some throats while listening to some Slipknot.

Well excuse us...but we didn't have our doors locked 100 years ago, and we had just as many guns then....we're not about to give up our right to secure Freedom, just because a bunch of gangs want to shoot eachother.
