Regarding the gun debate: All I hear is ban guns and fix mental health. We have a whole generation of children and young adults who have grown up on violence on TV and in the movies and video games. I think these young people have become desensitized to killing and seeing people blown away. It would take a long time to change that if the (media) violence was stopped right now.

I also believe gangs should be banned. Thatís where a lot of killings and illegal drugs come from.

Prohibition didnít work in the 1920s and I donít think more gun laws will either.
