Guns don't kill people. Movies and video games kill people


But only in the US. A movie isn't able to stir up violence in... oh, I don't know... let's say... Bengazi.

Watching violent movies as a kid has done nothing but good things for me.

Just last weekend I beheaded this guy on the steps of his front porch, right in front of a bunch of his friends.

But its cool, he was the leader of some snake cult and an all-around bad guy.

Crom was pleased.

Chinchillazilla: My favorite movie is Kill Bill. I guess that's why I'm doing time for hacking up forty people with a katana.


My favorite movie is Silence of the Lambs so I've eaten a few people and made a skin suit out of some. It's a worthwhile hobby,not like those terrible violent movies or video games.

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 not

June 11, 1964: Cologne school massacre. Armed with an insecticide sprayer converted into a flamethrower, a lance and a homebuilt mace-11 killed | 22 injured

May 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.


"Since two people used two unconventional things to cause chaos, we shouldn't do anything at all to try to end mass killings."

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!

/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.


Hmm, I'm not sure... Custer's Revenge and Smurf Rescue are pretty damn bad, too. At least you were playing a likeable character in ET.

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.


Meh. Most of my favorite activities involve walking around with a gun in my hand. Of course, it's this gun:

As advertisers have learned over the years, Americans -- along with the majority of the human race -- are gullible. The old 'Monkey see, monkey do' condition most certainly applies, especially among those under 30.

W ...

It is interesting that you use the word gullible...it is an ersatz word and can not even be found in the dictionary.

dittybopper: What, you mean like Norway?


You mean one attack in decades versus 61 in the United States since 1982? Gosh, you're right. That one event by a paranoid, racist man who used an illegal weapon to carry out the opening shots of what he thought would be a revolution in his crazed mind invalidates every point about their culture and approach to mental health and altruism being valid.

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!

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.


I always thought Eddie would have gotten really heavily into bondage porn, and put June Lockhart's face on all the dominatixes (is that how you pluralize "dominatrix"?).
Then it occured to me that it was really weird to be thinking of such things.

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.


God bless you, sir.

I want this to be the national discussion.

/"We chose to get laid in this decade and do the other one, not because they are easy but because I am hard!"
//"I knew Jack Kennedy, and you, sir, do not lay like Jack Kennedy"

If we're going to ban things because they might inspire violent behavior, I suggest we start with the Bible, the Quran, and the Communist Manifesto. Those three have inspired more death and destruction than anything else I know of.
