  1. Ive played violent video games and ive never shot anyone or started being violent. Saying video games cause violence is like saying hot wheels cause car crashes

  2. im not violent and i play plenty of shooters

  3. Ive played Rainbow Six Siege which is rated m and i am still a child. I have not started to become a violent person

  4. Violent video games are always going to make violent people. As the Bible says,”The eye is the gateway to your heart. If what goes into your heart is evil,what comes out will be the same.”
