3. it's not destroying the first amendment to assign blame.

now, legislating violence out of the media, videogames, etc.? yes, that would run up against the first amendment.

but simply to say that these are contributing factors (in these rare but sensational situations that have numerous contributing factors) and urging them to engage in a bit of introspection and voluntarily change their ways, that's not a first amendment problem at all. in fact, that's exactly the CORRECT use of the first amendment.

the first amendment is NOT freedom from criticism.
