Senseless Violence

I enjoy a violent video game or an action movie as much as the next person. Only yesterday, I was gunning down a digital army of the undead. I think it would have been physically impossible for one person the carry the amount of ammunition I emptied into wave after wave of brain eating zombies. Does that make me a violent person though? Does that mean that I’ve got a weapon wielding maniac tucked away in my psyche just waiting to be released? I think it’s unlikely, just as much as it is unlikely that there are going to be any invasions of skeletal monsters on the horizon. Maybe if I was put in the actual situation of fighting off a load of zombies I would be able to fall back on my Nintendo training. Years of aiming for head shots and making do with clipping a shoulder could pay off.
