Penn Jillette on Video Games & Violence
  • many parents dont like their children playing violent video games but buy them any way.
  • In the past 20 years the murder rate in the United States has dropped by almost half.
  • robberies were down 10 percent in 2010 from the year before and 8 percent in 2009.
If video games cause violence raise violence in society why have crime rates gone down?
Video games are a 10.5 BILLION dollar industry that being said we are inflicting this so called "violence" on our selfs . Which makes this argument all the more ridiculous.

While your. Points are respected violence in video games do not cause violence in society.
