    And I think idiot politicians are a bigger problem than video games.

    Clearly this is a man who does not play video games but wants an excuse to get his kids out of the house to play in the sun

    I'm not entirely sure why video games are even being brought up by our politicians and reporters when they talk about "the gun issue". And to say "I think video games is [sic] a bigger problem than guns" is completely absurd. Video games are designed to be entertaining, as are movies, television, books, music, radio ect. Guns are designed to KILL LIVING TARGETS. Clearly thinking that video games are more harmful, or that they should be restricted before restricting guns is moronic. Everyone is trying to pin the blame for the recent shooting on one thing. But when is crime ever caused by one singe thing that you can just get rid of to stop the problem. (for example: how many different reasons can there be for someone speeding?) There are multiple sides to the gun debate and many things that need to be done to prevent further gun violence. I just wish that the politicians would stop trying to avoid the real issues in favor of saying things that ignorant people believe to be fact, or don't understand.

    The real issue is our country's mental health system, and how we take care of those who obviously can not take care of their own selves. Instead of coming up with some fucking scheme to garner more votes so that they can keep their old corrupt ass in office.

    He's right, when I go on the internetz and play the Dooms and the Castle Wolfensteins It makes me want to shoot people. :(

    Just in case we live near each other I would like to ask you to not play those two games anymore ;P

    Tonight, America (or those in power in America, to be more specific (and to stop regular Americans flaming me)), you are to look at a globe. You will notice the USA there. You will also notice other lands on this globe. Hard to believe but there exist people outside of the USA (at least in the parts you haven't blown up yet). You will also learn that these lands have access to violent media and somehow - they don't go on shooting sprees. Just a thought. Mind you, I soon won't be able to talk anymore. The BBFC in the UK is adopting its hardline stance again in regards to violent media. For shame.

    Wahahahaha, I'll totally believe what some old white senetor believes about video games, as soon as he believes what I do about guns. Dipshit

    "I think video games is [sic] a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people," Because bullets, they just bounce harmlessly off peoples skin OH WAIT. Jesus Christ, what IS it about right-wing Americans? Why do they carry on ignoring the blatantly obvious problem with gun crimes? If you give people guns, they are going to use them. There isn't some amazing holistic approach to this where by disabling gamers you cripple gun crime. In the UK and most of Europe, there's something like 1% of the amount of gun crime there is in the US, because people just can't get hold of guns. Sure, there's the argument that it's for protection, but the fact is, you're still protecting yourself with a gun- if you shoot that person, you're no better than them. And what are you protecting yourself FROM? The only thing that would really necessitate a gun as self-defense would, amazingly, be another gun- or maybe a shark, but those are even harder to get hold of. If you banned guns, you wouldn't need to have a gun as a defence against another gun, because there'd be no other gun, and then the 98% can just go back to enjoying video games in peace, like we want.

    What are they protecting themselves from?!? jackthemenace, if Americans have their guns the king of England could walk right in there and start pushing them around. D'ya want that? Huh? Do you?
  • jackthemenace - January 30, 2013 12:58 p.m.

    Took me a minute to get where you were going with that ;P But as an Englishman, I don't see that the US couldn't use knocking down a peg or two... I mean, copying our national healthcare? We only let Canada get away with that because they're such pussies.
  • bass88 - January 30, 2013 2:31 p.m.

    It's a good thing Breaking Bad came out before "Obamacare" went through. Can you imagine if they remade it in Britain? Walter White gets cancer, is helped through it by the NHS and doesn't have to worry about crippling his family with health bills.
  • jackthemenace - January 30, 2013 2:42 p.m.

    And it'd still be way more exciting than half the crap that's actually on TV in Britain. And Punchrod? That was great ;P You deserve a job in politics for that alone.
  • kyle94 - January 30, 2013 3:18 p.m.

    Don't worry too much about it. Seeing as how there are countless crazy people here in the US who think anything resembling universal healthcare is the equivalent of letting the ghost of the Soviet Union win the Cold War, we're not likely to completely and successfully copy you guys for a few more decades.
  • ultimatepunchrod - January 30, 2013 2:06 p.m.

    Good counter argument: if you take away video games, young people will just get them anyway!
  • brickman409 - January 30, 2013 noon

    this whole blame game is ridiculous. It makes me mad when people blame anything other than murderers for gun crimes.
  • oldmanmatthew - January 30, 2013 11:31 a.m.

    Everyone calm down, he's only makes things into law.
  • oldmanmatthew - January 30, 2013 11:32 a.m.

    excuse me, only a law maker.
  • jackthemenace - January 30, 2013 12:30 p.m.

    Personally, think you should have left it in; I thought that was a deliberate witticism designed to mock and parody the nutcase in the article.
  • bass88 - January 30, 2013 12:34 p.m.

    I agree with jackthemenace - the phrasing in your first post is satirical genius as it points out the adsurbity and horror of these statements.
