Social Prescription for Hell: Give Everyone a Gun and Have Them Play Violent Video Games

Research in the United States is not dead yet. Two recently released studies indicate aspects of American life reduce mutual and cooperative behavior in our culture. The first study shows young males handling guns increases aggressive behavior while the second indicates people who play violent video games become desensitized to actual violence.

What will our elected policy makers do with such information? Order stem cells to be kept away from violent video games and only arm them when born. At least that’s my wager.
