Do violent video games lead kids to....

Yes, if the games are produced by the US armed forces, and other armies around the planet who use games or gaming environments to actually, carry out violent crimes, but, alas, at a distance, so thats OK i guess.

"Texas A&M International University Professor Christopher Ferguson told NPR, “You know most of the debate now is really on to these minor acts of aggressiveness,” he said. “You know we’re talking about little children sticking their tongues out at each other and that sort of thing.”
Ferguson conducted his own meta-analysis and found no connection between video games and youth violence. “We have done a number of studies of video game violence with both children and adults and find no evidence to support links between video game violence and youth violence. Furthermore, youth violence has declined to 40 year lows, not gone up in recent years,” Ferguson told PC Gamer. --
