Does wrting about violence encourage violence?

In view of recent events and the fact that I’ve just had a crime novel published, I had to ask ‘Does writing about violence encourage violence?’

Researchers say ‘No!’ for some writing genres. There is, however, one genre of writing that encourages violence and that is in the marketing of guns. You’ll find this research and links in an article I wrote for Independent Australia titled The NRA: fear, hatred and how to sell guns.
