/but don't call it a fetish

If I had a bushmaster, this ad would make me want to melt it down out of shame.

It's a toy. Something people dress up and buy all sorts of accessories for. Just because it can put a hole in something it's regarded as a dangerous object.

I can think of some other reasons.

22 kids in Connecticut is a tragedy.

1000 people, many of them children, in Afganistan is a statisic.


Not a statistic, FREEDOM.

For freedom.

ferretman: Mike Chewbacca: Igor Jakovsky: Back in my day (the 80s) DnD and heavy metal music were responsible for violent youth.

If Im going to blame anything other than the shooter it would be our crappy mental healthcare system.

I'm a D&D-playing headbanger, but this post is retarded. Unless you know of a whole bunch of people who were mass murdered by Player's Handbook-wielding madmen?

*book to the neck*

CRIT!

You obviously do not remember the 1980's or you were not born yet. D & D was blamed for deaths as well as Heavy Metal...or has everyone forgot Tipper Gore?


Way to miss the point.

Fear of D&D is ridiculous, and D&D isn't a tool used to kill people. D&D is also mocked in the main stream.

Guns, on the other hand, ARE used to kill people, and our society worships both guns and violence.

Yes, D&D was included in the Satanic Panic of the 80s. However, it is not an apt comparison to calls for gun control in the wake of a mass shooting. Guns actually kill people, D&D does not.

We should ban mentally ill people from entering schools! Problem solved! Thank God for Laws!

Cars?

/why don't we do that?


Exactly, more people die from car accidents then guns every year.
When are they going to ban the Honda Civic, with some specific tweaks you can modify it into one of those (gasp) ricer cars.
That and Fast and the Furious, that movie just promotes the whole ricer mentality, movies like that and Gone in 60 Seconds promote dangerous driving.
Porsches, Ferraris and Lambos need to be banned or severely rev limited, no need to go over the 65 speed limit. Matter of fact maybe they should be restricted to 55 as it would be that much safer right? It may disuade some of these nutjobs from buying one.
Same logic

log_jammin: regardless, it is an assault rifle.


Here's a nifty little ditty called "Armalite Rifle"

Armalite rifle police and ira
Armalite rifle use it everyday
Breaks down easy fits into a pram
A child can carry it do it no harm
Armalite rifle and the holy trinity
It's used against you for irish jokes and the bbc
Armalite rifle please skew the aim
Armalite rifle use it everyday
The rifle does harm it shoots for miles
If a bullet gets you in the heart destroys your insides
Armalite rifle police duty eh?
Armalite rifle use it everyday
It'll do you damage it'll do you harm
Blow your legs off blow your guts out
I disapprove of it so does dave
It'll do you damage it'll do you damage
Damage damage damage damage damage


//from 1978, hence the IRA references

People kill people, but guns make people a whole lot more efficient at it. Seriously, your argument is weak and without merit. We don't make laws only as a deterrent, but also to allow for punishment.

This thread is dead but m point was this, the article was about a TV show that got pulled because it was about guns and we just had a mass shooting. Comments by some of those interviewed in the article said Hollywood was partially to blame for gun violence. Back in the 80s metal and dnd were scapegoated. Movies no more killed anyone than those things did 30 years ago. The article is about blaming Hollywood for violence not gun control.

What part of murder is not punishable by the law? Your argument for MORE laws is even weaker. Do you really think that laws stop people from committing crimes?

What if I could show you that by actual numbers that have been agreed upon, and factual statistics that with guns about 370,000 people were affected by violent crimes, but that without guns, a minimum of over 1,000,000 people would have been affected. Most likely, well over 2,000,000 would have been affected.
