But can I add an afterthought:@)

If you take the pencil away, the person would be forced to use a laptop or other electronic device, that may have a spell checker

I don't think that really holds, people want the real thing. There's something satisfying in being able to launch a small projectile and witness the physical damage that it makes (on inaimate objects).

It's not brilliant. It's rhetoric which distorts the truth and convinces many that gun ownership is a non issue.

I don't know, Call of Duty is still very popular. Some people just want the rush.

I'm all for VR and gaming, and agree that it is a good substitute for many with an interest in shooting. Just saying the real thing will always have its adherents too.

Thrill of the kill. Sometimes/always even "normal" people snap.

I don't believe I have ever snapped using my shotgun. I can't see what would have to happen for me to ever do so.

This is a story that's going to put a smug smile on all the NRA supporters.

Local NRA guy grabs rifle, gives chase and shoots at victim. Hell yeah thats why we need to be armed.......
