Mysteries surrounding Jeffrey Epstein's death now make it increasingly difficult for "grown ups" in the mainstream media to dismiss it all as just another crazy conspiracy theory.

What's causing all these mass shootings? Some say guns. Dr. Christopher J. Ferguson, professor of psychology and criminal justice and author of "Moral Combat: Why the War on Violent Video Games Is Wrong" says Call of Duty, Halo, and Grand Theft Auto play no role in gun violence. Dr. Ferguson also says when you examine the numbers, gun violence in America may actually be declining.
