Violence in Media and It's Role in Aggression
Gun violence in movies for adolescence has increased
Gun violence has doubled since the 1950's
Twice in an hour or more gun violence is shown in Pg-13 films

We may decrease violence shown in media, and it might decrease in society, but it is impossible to completely eradicate it. We are influenced by the idea of the violence shown in media, but we do not take direct action and imitate it. However, there is research evidence that kids may become more desensitized to violence, and begin to think that violence is okay. Likewise certain people may be inclined to watch Violence in Media more than others.
Preferences For Violence in Media
Boys that where less aggressive show more aggression after watching a nonviolent program
Aggression in TV programs does not create aggression
Boys who are aggressive have a higher preference to watch violent program's
Boys with high aggression show more aggression after being exposed to a violent program
Violence in Media is a casual risk factor to violence in society
Violence as a social phenomenon is to complex and unclear that it can not be traced to a single source
If violence in media reduces or grows violence in society does not change because violence in media is not a cause for aggression
