I don't want to take away someones right to own a gun, but there at least needs to be a conversation about gun control in this country.
It seems I can't go anywhere around here without seeing some mention of a gun in society. Whether it's in movies or video games they are all too present in front of our kids. Just yesterday I was checking out some video games for a new Xbox that the kids got for Hanukkah. I was hard pressed to find a game that didn't have some sort of violence in it. Video games are not alone, in fact it troubles me that my FAVORITE toy could very well be the largest producer of firearms in the world.
I know that it is up to us parents to control what our kids see and do, and it's not one thing that is a factor in how our kids behave. It's not the music, it's not the video games, it's not the movies, but it is a combination of everything. The truth is I have always realized that Lego had a lot of guns in their sets and it did trouble me, but not enough to really do anything about it. I mean I must have over 300 guns in my house ranging from shotguns, to assault rifles, to pistols, to laser guns, and canons. It's a lot of weapons. Fortunately they won't actually kill anyone like the real ones do.
