Actually Communism under Mao and Stahlin, which is atheistic, is responsible for the single biggest genocide event and loss of life from a numbers standpoint, but go ahead and believe what your anti-religous teen agnst mind tells you to believe if it makes you feel better.


Wow, you completely missed the point. Do you work for Fox as a spinster?

Whenever something violent happens Fox is always quick to blame something, CoD is the most popular game with guns in it so of course they go to CoD, if it wasn't CoD it'd be Halo or Battlefield.

I've never taken anything Fox says seriously, then I managed to be able to take them even LESS seriously when they had that news "controversy" over Mass Effect 1's Romance scenes

Blaming anybody or anything other than the person who pulled the trigger is a very cowardly thing to do. Violent movies/video games didn't make the murderer kill 26 people. He chose to kill 26 people on his own. Violence and movies/video games is a correlation not a causation.


or it isn't the single cause because there is no single cause, but it could very well be a relevant contributing factor. also, merely saying "Violent movies/video games didn't make the murderer kill 26 people" and offering no substance for it does nothing for your argument.


And if you are willing to lay blame on anything other than the murderer than you are a coward. He chose to kill those people. He is to blame. Unfortunately in today's society nothing is ever your fault.

if you are unwilling to understand the social forces at work and leveraging them for prediction and prevention of future incidents, then you're a moron.

Widening the scope of responsibility does not diminish anyone's guilt in a criminal case.

For example. Let's say he was a suicide bomber instead of a lone gunman. Now, he didn't create the suicide vest. Someone else put it together for him. Would you deny the bomb-maker's culpability in the crime?

Of course you wouldn't. But when the gun companies sell 312 million guns to 300 million Americans, they bear no responsibility for the 10,000+ deaths per year from gun violence that results?

When there are billions of dollars in gun sales at stake, morality goes out the window.

This is like saying fast food companies should be responsible for all of the people who get fat and get diabetes from eating their food. Self control is a really hard concept to understand.

On a show called Fox and Friends they are talking how violent video games and movies are training kids to kill and that the Newtown murder liked playing video games. Guess which game the used as a main example?? Give up...yup its Black Ops 2. Lol they are even saying that the more you play violent video games the more you get violent according to a "Study."


They have been trying to say this for years and it has never been proven or even hinted that it is remotely true. They often cite some ass backwards study to prove there point when there are dozens that show exactly the opposite.

If it was there would be millions of people out just killing people randomly.

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

So I guess we should blame car makers for car crashes. beer companies for drunk drivers and alcoholics. if there is a stabbling, its the maker of knifes fault. While were at it lets ban any movie that is violent because it sometimes inspires people to commit crimes. there are some books we could ban for the same thing. Not to mention video games. Lets ban those, especially them first person shooters like Black Ops II

You cant ban evil.
