If there really were a connection between shooting and video games, don't you think there would be a lot more people falling prey to this? Think about it. How many mass shootings have taken place so far in the last ten years? And what are the odds that each of those shootings are indeed connected to video gaming?



How many have happened IN the PasT 12 months alone!!!!!!

- fake Joker shooting
- NYC shooting
- TODAY!!!


I was told there was one at a mall in Oregon last week.

No. Video games have nothing to do with it. Does anybody here know if it's legal to have guns under 21?


Federal Law:

BB and airsoft guns at 16
Non concealable weapons at 18
Concealable weapons at 21


This guys guns were concealable right? If so, then the secondary blame should go to the idiots who somehow let him get them.


According to the news, they did find a bushmaster in his car (http://www.bushmaster.com/index.asp). What they do not mention is if the gun is an automatic or semi (AR 15s normally come semi automatic. You can buy them in Academy)

Not to mention that the weapons were not his. They belonged to his mother, who he shot in the face.

Now depending on the news article you go to, Porunga is correct. They say that the mother got them for him, and other say that the mother solely owned them.

Americans are becoming more and more entertained with watching violence by the day. You're partially correct.

And yet you can't say video games were the ones at fault for any of those.

And an alleged mass stabbing in China, as well as a drunk football player killing his friend with a car. Time to limit peoples access to cars, booze, cutlery and sports.

You must let your anger be as a monkey in a pinata, hiding inside with the candy, hoping kids don't breakthrough with a stick.

America loves shooting games because it already had a gun and violence fetish, not the other way around.
