I'm curious of people's thoughts. Take a good think about it. Day after day it seems new shootings in the US. The most popular competitive activity right now being played by masses is Call of Duty Online. Could the day after day constant shooting of advatars causing an upswing in gun violence? Millions are hooked on this game, with videogame addiction issues.
I'm not saying ban guns, I"m not saying ban call of duty, I"m asking a question. Btw I"m a gamer who plays violent games, RPGS, Assassin's creed is my favorite. I am NOT anti-videogame.

I love guns, call of duty and war history and I have never had the urge to go kill people. The problem isn't guns. we need to ask why people are in such a disturbed place to go out and do this type of thing.

No. Guns or video games do not breed violence.
Society as a whole is down the crapper. No morals, no values and no belief in anything other then what is owed to the person by the Govt.
Kids for decades before video games were playing cops and robbers, or cowboys and indians without the lashing out of violent episodes.
