Right wing types: "Video Games and violent movies did this, not guns!" Because Japan and its complete and utter lack of mass shootings don't exist.

That’s the funny thing. Your average Hollywood movie is actually, eh, pretty tame. At least compared with the past. Everyone is too obsessed with getting a PG-13 rating. Man, Star Wars has never even had a swear word in like 8 movies.

And the video games point is just absurd.
