Boys and their toys

Recently in my Mass Communications class, we discussed the topic of violent media. Does violent media make us violent humans? Things like scary movies and video games can show a lot of violence in short period of time. The photo below shows my guy friends playing the popular came Call Of Duty. https://www.callofduty.com/ With the game being so popular I do begin to wonder, is this causing people to be more violent. We are introduced to violence at an early age, and a lot of things seem normal to us now. I do not believe being exposed to violence through a video games causes us to be directly violent, but it does cause us to not be as concerned with violence around us. http://www.apa.org/action/resources/research-in-action/protect.aspx image
