    There is no question that bullying causes chronic stress and anxiety. It's not a question of it could. It does.

    Obviously not every student who is bullied is going to become a school shooter. But if 1 in 20 students are dropping out of school due to bullying then that proves just how serious its effects are. Students who are bullied also tend to withdraw and become isolated. Another trait often seen in these school shooters. The fact 1 in 4 teachers don't see bullying as a serious problem doesn't help this situation either.

    Bullying also lead to depression, suicide... substance abuse. You name it.

    People who are bullied often become bullies themselves.

    It's a vicious cycle.

    We need to put the focus more on school bullying. Violent entertainment can feed a psychosis - but it doesn't cause them. Long term abuse or mental anguish however can. It's already been proven that high degrees of prolonged stress can cause someone to go nuts.

    I dunno man, but.. playing the video game The Sims inspires me to do home improvement project around my house.

    I think the bigger question here would be why the sudden shift in opinion from the MSM?

    Up until this week, the MSM has always blamed video games for mass shootings.

    I bet 80% of mass shooters showed a great interest in getting some military style guns and ammo. Shit, I bet it was 100% of them.

    As I noted, violent entertainment can feed a psychosis. But it doesn't not cause them.

    Bullying has already been proven to cause mental illness.

    Bullying can affect physical and emotional health, both in the short term and later in life. It can lead to physical injury, social problems, emotional problems, and even death.1 Those who are bullied are at increased risk for mental health problems, headaches, and problems adjusting to school.2 Bullying also can cause long-term damage to self-esteem.

    This is according to the US department of Health and and social services.

    The point is we already know that bullying leads to mental health problems. So it makes a lot more sense to focus on that instead of trying to blame it on video games.

    I dont have a link but recently saw a psych evaluator on a news program that also said, 95% of the mass shooters have been in a relationship that was highly abusive. Even at young ages in high school, their girlfriends reported beating, hitting or some physical abuse, so there is definately a violence connection. For the life of me, I cant recall that happening back when I was in high school. I dont recall any friends getting beat up by their boyfriends. That came later when they were in their 20s or so.

    There has been some preliminary connections between these young men having been bullied by an adult early in their lives. Too early to say, but many of them had been victims of abuse or bullying by a father, uncle or older brother.

    Bullying can come in many forms. It doesn't always have to be done at school - and there are a lot of domestic shootings in this country that result from abuse at the home. But there is a reason these students target schools in particular. That isn't done by accident. So I think its safe to say bullying at school was a dominant factor as it relates to their motivations.

    Regardless - and as I added in my last post - we already know that bullying causes mental health problems. So it would make a lot more sense to focus on that instead of trying to blame video games. It's already been established by scientific studies that it can lead to depression and suicide - and these school shooters are almost always depressed and suicidal.

    So why do we allow something to continue in our public schools that leads to suicide, depression and the general degradation of one's mental well-being? That's a much better question to be asking ourselves instead of if video games are bad.
