runaway06: NRA / "Conservative" sloganGuns don't kill people. Movies and video games kill people
Chinchillazilla: My favorite movie is Kill Bill. I guess that's why I'm doing time for hacking up forty people with a katana.
hasty ambush: moothemagiccow: Charles Martel: It makes as much sense to blame Tarantino for mass killings as it does to blame AR-15s for mass killings.No it doesn't. If those guns had been exclusive to the military, those kids would still be alive. If Tarantino never made a movie, those kids would still be dead.Or notLinkJune 11, 1964: Cologne school massacre. Armed with an insecticide sprayer converted into a flamethrower, a lance and a homebuilt mace-11 killed | 22 injuredMay 18, 1927 : In the deadliest mass school murder in United States history, former school board member Andrew Kehoe set off three bombs in Bath Township, Michigan killing 45 people and wounding 58. Kehoe killed himself and the superintendent by blowing up his own vehicle.
BeesNuts: littlett's: Wasilla Hillbilly: BronyMedic: People have been blaming video games since ET. Strangely enough, as games have gotten more realistic, violence has gone down.To be fair, the ET video game causing violence would be understandable.That had to have been the worst game ever made. To this day I still don't know what you were supposed to do.Challenge Accepted![img577.imageshack.us image 252x357]/FWIW, ET the game was designed in less than 2 months at the behest of Atari, so that they could capitalize on the international popularity of ET (which came out Summer '82) before Christmas. The game was designed and built in a matter of weeks and tested in a matter of days.//You're looking for phone parts, I think.
Seraphym: I found eleven different shows where some character had a gun in his hand during the few seconds I was watching. There's something wrong with that.

dittybopper: What, you mean like Norway?

BigBooper: As I said in an earlier thread, we need to have another census, but in this version, people report on the behavior of their neighbors. Anyone who fits the profile of a potential mass murder,serial killer, pedophile, etc. etc. or black, should be rounded up and put into camps; we'll call them Freedom Schools. Now I know what your thinking, but no, these would not be prisons or concentration camps. They would be places where these potentially dangerous people would be given the help and care that they need to reintegrate with society. Once it was proven that they were not and would never become violent, they would be released. But this time they would be joining our communities with knowledge and skills they learned in Freedom School. Sure they would be watched closely, the jobs they would be allowed to take would be limited, where they could live would be tightly controlled, and they will have been sterilized, but they will be free to live full and complete lives! And our society will flourish! Imagine the freedom of living without violence or fear, or basic human rights!And those who can't prove that they will never be violent or have rich parents or relatives who can buy their way out of Freedom School will be allowed to work for the betterment of society, as miners, and ditch diggers and the like. Now don't worry, each of them would be fitted with tracking and explosive collars to keep them in check.Always remember: Trust and love your government, we know best./peace and order through obedience!//obedience is freedom, dissent is chaos!
littlett's: browntimmy: It appears the baby-boomer generation was much more murder happy than the current one. I blame Leave It To Beaver.It was that ass kisser Eddie Haskel all along.give me doughnuts: Sword and no track-suit? Even better!Only if.
Great Justice: I wish to address the elephant in the room in regard to these shootings.Virtually every single mass shooting going back to Columbine was committed by a male who was not sexually active. These shootings are caused by extreme frustration which causes these men to lash out violently, and sexual frustration plays a huge role. Getting laid every now and again goes a long way in ensuring mental stability, while never getting laid while falling into a routine of loneliness and social isolation is a great way to build mental instability.Maybe the solution is to legalize prostitution, maybe the problem won't be solved until they invent reasonably sexy robots. But either way, I remain convinced that handjobs save lives.
cryinoutloud: It might make a difference, especially with all those hyper-realistic VIDEO GAMES that we have now. Yes, I said it. How do we know? Has anyone done a comprehensive study, or any kind of study at all, about how these things might affect us as a society? No, of course not, and we never will.
