Fars News Agency

"Is blaming the NRA a convenient way for Americans to avoid some necessary soul searching: a refusal to address the deeply-rooted cultural problem of violence being the preferred method of conflict resolution and most popular source of entertainment in areas that include sports, movies, television, and video games?

And he says that people’s strategies for finding a partner will vary, depending on the kind of relationship they are looking for."
