Guys! We need to stop people living their lives! There is a strong correlation between violence and living, stress and living, aggression and living and death and living.

Make the right decision. Stop people from living. Thank you.

Stop being a tool TC.
This has nothing to do with the Developers, and everything to do with Socialist politicians that want to take your free rights away, and force you to do what they (Big-Government) tells you.

People who vote for these socialists are also partly to blame.

I'm not a big fan of first person shooters like Call of Duty but this is pure nonsensical B.S.
Just more scapegoating taking place. So much effort is being put into this instead of actually putting effort in gun law regulations. This just makes me sick. Way to piss on the grave of those who died.


^ There are plenty of gun registrations & laws on the books that AREN'T being enforced. What then are more laws & regulations going to accomplish ? Absolutely nothing.
Go back to any & every mass shooting in the past 20 years, and every one was committed by people who broke so many laws.
More laws WON'T prevent anything.
You are being used if you think they will.

You can go to any State that has massive laws & regulations, and they have the highest crime rate.
The States with the least regulations are the ones with the least crime.
It is only common sense...
Where are criminals going to attack...?
They are going to go to the places where there are these strict laws, because they know that they will be the one carrying the guns, while everyone else will follow the laws and won't have any.
Chicago, New-York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Washington, etc have the strictest gun laws and yet they have the highest amount of crime and gun deaths. Chicago alone has a 100 shooting per month, and they have a complete ban on guns. Yet this never gets reported, because its NOT about saving lives, but about pushing a Socialist/Communist form of Government where the Government has total control.

Go look up history....
Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Communist China, etc...all banned guns right before they oppressed their people.
Joeseph Stalin stated that, "the first thing any Dictator needs to do is take guns away from their people so as to prevent anyone of fighting back" or something to that affect.
Hitler disarmed the Jews, and did so because he claimed they were causing crime and that it was being done to increase safety. Then, he rounded up all the Jews and sent them to concentration camps and to the ovens to be burned to death.

The politicians that want to do more gun regulations so NOT want to prevent any deaths. If they did, they would support putting armed guards in schools..but they adamantly object to that.
What they want to do is disarm everyone, and prevent people from defending themselves...that way you are forced to depend on them for defense, which is a joke, because it is impossible for them to come to your defense in time. They can only appear after the fact, when it's too late.

Even Mexico has a complete ban on all guns.
All the criminals have them, and the people don't, and are at the mercy of the criminals and drug lords.

And like I said....every mass shooting that has taken place in the last 20 years involved people who broke countless laws committing their crime.
What would another regulation or law accomplish ?
Absolutely NOTHING !

You are being led like sheep to the slaughter by the wolves (politicians), and the people who vote for them & cover up their lies and messes (News media).

I think its funny to hear these proposals by these organizations against violent video games.

They clearly outline and even recommend a program that's already been in effect, known as the ESRB in the States.

All the while, they are denying the truth of all of this. The center of the problem mind you.

PARENTS.

Oh noez! Parents can never be the blame! Parents will take pride and credit for a smart child who wins a Nobel prize but where's the responsibility for when your child's a psychopath?

Games.

The only thing I agree with in regards to this group is educating parents and having minors be accompanied to purchase such games.

That's it.

The rest about them saying video games play a role in making juveniles commit crimes based on viewing violence is a bunch of knee jerk horse excrement that hearkens back to the comic book witch hunts of the 1950's.

The vast majority of crimes committed in the US are related to burglary and vandalism, and that has more to do with our "buy tons of stuff and you'll be happy" marketing mentality than perceiving violence.

those guys are idiots there was gun violence and crimes like that before games even exist also casually selling Ak's and stuff in a shop in the middle of town doesn't help

Nothing wrong with violence but we need to do something about gender discrimination in games
Its very disturbing that killing children and women in video games is taboo yet its ok to kill hundreds of males
i also was very shocked by "Bros before hoes" trophy uproar in god of war making them to change the trophy name because of twisted male feminists logic


that's because most soldiers,police officers,knights,crimlnals and so on are men and since games normally reflect society most enemies in games tend to be men so if you want to blame someone blame who ever came up with the idea that women have to stay home and that they also can't fight
also killing women in games is not taboo for example you can kill women in GTA,MGS 4 has some female enemies and also Mortal Kombat

Nobody wants to kill kids in games

People have a sick fetish for that...I mean what do you gain from that in a video game? Satisfaction? They never give me a straight answer to "that" particular taboo subject because they can't. People who want that in their games I have to call complete morons.


I'm starting to think Gamefaqs has a fringe group around here somewhere.

The good news is that progressivism and the "anti-gun" legislation (whoops, let the cat slip there huh, Harry) was all but dealt a fatality in the Senate. I wouldn't worry about this one either.
