An open-minded mom is uneasy about giving her son shooter games for Christmas. A must-read about our culture of violence
Like I posted on that article.
Shooters are to teaching me to shoot, as crimson skies taught me how to fly a plane.
I have shot many guns, I live in AK its a rite of passage. But there is nothing a video game can do to prepare you for shooting a REAL gun.
It will kick back.
Its a violent (but channeled) explosion in your hands.
It can be scary to fire depending on the caliber. .50 scare the fuck out of me in a handgun.
Take that 13 year old to a rifle range to shoot his favorite gun from his games and I guarentee you it will scare him shitless.
