Re: Video Game Violence...again

said by Cthen:

Well the blame was placed on TV before then, Dungeons and Dragons was next.

And of course, rock and roll music. Video games getting the blame certainly isn't anything new. It's been going on since Pac-Man was the big thing.

The gun I sold was an XD-9 fullsize (5" barrel). Fantastic gun, but too big and cumbersome to carry.

I had this same pistol until my wife took it away from me. lol Sweet shooting gun. I got a 45 XDm as a replacement so I'm not complaining. I can actually carry it pretty easy. It is heavy though.

I just purchased my Wife an SR9C for christmas, She must of been watching all the BF3 i've been playing lately.
Off-topic I use a glock 27 for concealing, great little gun. I like the XD's too though.

Today, we can see violence anywhere easily. How can video games be the "catalyst" to such demonstration of violence.

I see the banalisation of all sources of violence as the main problem. There is so much of it everywhere (internet, tv, games) that the real thing might not be taken to it right value by an unequilibrated individual.

That is something you won't here about because it doesn't generate ratings. I also like how the news media will focus on this shooting yet they will not cover the daily shootings in my neighborhood? Ya know, where the kids really learn about violence.

One time I seen GTA 3 on the news, showed about a minute of how bad the game can get.
The game is old and they broadcasted it nearly the very day it was released. Now its much worse. There's bear in the new GTA games (where GTA 3 did'nt have) and now we have 10 year olds drinking bear on our streets everywhere.

Yeah, kids never drank bear (sic) before GTA showed them how!

Oh, America, your stupid fascination with red herrings.

I've run across plenty of hookers and drug dealers in GTA4, but never have I seen any bears.

If I ever get arrested for picking up a prostitute, beating the shit out of her, and stealing all her money...I'm totally going to blame it on GTA4.

Don't speculate homie. No one knows how this lady raised her kid, or the problems she dealt with ragarding him.

not speculation...

read the articles, the kid was disturbed... the mother is even quoted 1 week before the tragedy as saying "I can no longer reach him"...

She was a "survivalist" and was prepping for the collapse of society.

She thought it would be good to train her sons adam and ryan to use weapons for surviving

wackadoo mother, with pscyhotic child... so she introduces him to weapons... wackadoo mother, pscyho son

Read what articles? All the ones speculating this 20 year old grown adult was "disturbed"?

This lady did nothing illegal.

You're trying to make it sound as though she took a convicted felon with pscycotic tendencies to a shooting range, and handed him weapons.

Do you even know how he obtained the weapons he used? Neither do I.

Correct she did nothing illegal. Not having common sense isn't illegal either.

There are plenty of articles and witnesses, and on tv where they said the mother had stated those things. Even back to when he was 10 years old, the baby sitter could never turn his back on him for fear of the kid going nuts.

He was a pscyho, no doubt about it.

He had 3 weapons on him. ALL were registered to his mother. He got them from his mother. How? could be as simple as stealing mothers gun cabinet keys. The mother was shot while she was asleep.

All I'm saying, is that if you have a child that is disturbed, you don't introduce them to guns.

This wasn't caused by video games. It was caused by a wackadoo "prepper" mother, introducing her mentally disturbed child to assault rifle.

I'm all for guns, my family has rifles, semi-auto shotguns, we hunt deer, pheasant and duck. But if I had a disturbed child, I wouldn't let them shoot.

The kid was 20yrs old(1992)...so lets see Gulf war I was happening, the LA Riots, Bosnian War was raging, I can go on. Nine years later muslin extremists flew planes into the world trade center and killed 3000 innocents...we invaded Afghanistan, a year later we invaded iraq (anyone remember the beheadings?), 2 yrs later The Oklahoma City bombing...we can go on and on and on. But wait its video games that need to be regulated along with the guns that woke up last Friday and decided on their own to shoot up 20 elementary kids and 6 teachers.

There is evil in the world. It's beyond mental illness, beyond gun control and shoot em up video games. It is evil.

Good grief man.

The worst part is that animals do it out of instinct and survival... whereas games are just pure evil created by the devil. We must stop empowering the Enemy.
