Essay

 I do not believe that TV and movie violence itself should be restricted by law. However I believe that watching it should be limited by law.
 Firstly, I do not believe that TV and movie violence itself should be restricted by law because it is against freedom of speech. We have the right of free expression and to produce works freely. Restriction on violent TV and movie itself is nothing but an encroachment on freedom of speech.
 However, watching violence on TV and movie should be limited by law because it leads to violence and crime in the real world. Although it is not that everyone who watched violent TV and movie gets violent and aggressive, someone surely does and it is a serious problem even if there are few because there are cases in which people who have been affected by violence on TV and movie committed serious crimes due to it.
 In conclusion, for the aforementioned reasons, the important thing is to restrict not on TV and movie violence itself but on watching it by small children and people with unstable mental conditions or who are crime-prone or unhappy.

テレビや映画のバイオレンスは法で規制されるべきか?です。
テレビや映画のバイオレンス、そのものを規制するのは、表現の自由に反するので反対だが、それを視聴する際の規制は必要、と言う感じで、書いてみました。
