A tear jerker movie but no relation with gun violence?
Have you ever watched a “tear-jerker” movie? Where do they get that name? Is there a relationship between watching a “tear-jerker” and emotions?
Of course there’s a relationship. That’s why it’s called a “tear-jerker”. Yet we are repeatedly told that there is no relationship between movie violence and gun violence.
How can this be? Do they mean that video and video game violence doesn’t influence the watcher’s emotions? Yet certain videos produce a “tear-jerker” response?
Does the video content not affect young watchers or (young participants in video game violence)? Is TV not saturated with gun violence? Is the 5-o’clock news not always broadcasting violence, death or molestation?
Do you think that there is no relationship between video, video games and gun violence?
