- @Jumwa: There certainly is a difference, but you're approaching it from the wrong direction. For millennia trivialised/glorified violence was the norm, and it's only been recently that we have had anything "realistic and impactful". Importantly, the latter is winning.
- <blockquote>Note that the homicide rate now is much lower than it was in centuries past. If you’re sincerely using that as an argument to say nothing needs to be done about the trivializing of warfare than you’ve just refuted your own argument about gun violence.</blockquote>
- I thought this was a whole new tangent you were going on, so stopped talking about that. Of course more should be done, which is where I started out and where I still am, but it is also true that things are better than they ever have been.
