Since reporting a couple months ago that my boy Alessio, 7 years old, had experienced his first air-soft experience at the local carnival, we’ve had another development. I thought it would take longer, but he’s suddenly discovered video shooting games. He seems to have graduated from racing games to shooting games. Watching him, I realized how sick it really is. It’s pretend killing. How can that be good for a kid? But what should I do about it? It seems to me there’s a progression here, of which we’re in the very beginning. Some kids play video shooting games, some of them graduate to realistic toy guns for “playing,” and some of them go on to own and use the real thing. All of it is about pretend killing. But, what should a gun-control advocate who understands these things and cares for his son’s welfare, do?
