How many killings or murders does a child see on TV or in the movies by their 18th birthday? 40,000, or something? Of course we have more gun violence here. It's a byproduct of our culture.

What needs to happen is, America needs to grow the fuck up, and get over this shit.

The Rev is right. By the time I was 18 I hadn't seen a fraction of the violence as someone who is 18 now. You never saw Ward Cleaver packing and Barney Fife had to keep the bullet in his pocket.
