    I love how then also want to ignore the rise of casual gaming, saying video gaming industry as a whole is a dark shadow is like saying Kinect Sports teaches people to be the Texas chainsaw massacre.

    *sigh* Ignoring to be more strict with the gun industry is the real problem, stop being ignorant you f*cking assholes, your worse than Developing Nations refusing to lower emissions because of excuses of not knowing shit.

    Weird. Last I checked, violent games were a global thing. Why so many shootings in America then? Shouldn't our despicably high level of gun violence be a global thing? Time to find a new scapegoat Mr. LaPierre, because games aren't the link you're looking for. Also saying that one flash game that prior to today no one has ever heard of about killing children is about as representative of the game industry as saying that Lanza is representative of all gun owners.

    So, an incident occurs that (once again) puts America's gun rights at risk, and the organization that leads the country's gun lobby decides to toss video games under the bus? I... I don't even know what to say about this. As someone who regularly checks the NRA site for gun-related news, I know the organization loves their fear-mongering (they've been having a field day criticizing the Obama administration, what with the UN Arms Treaty and the disastrous Fast & Furious gunrunning operation), but blaming violent video games (including decade-old flash games) and even calling the games industry a "callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry"... this is ridiculous even by their standards.

    Until I hear about someone being killed by a videogame instead of a gun I will pay no attention to the NRA.

    "There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people." Yes, you are absolutely right sir. It's called the gun industry. Fucking hypocrite.

    I kinda hope somebody shoots this guy.

    Using a ten year old flash game from newgrounds as a basis for why video games are a problem for the youth of the United States? Seriously? That's absurd. I can understand the problem that he would have with games like Bulletstorm and Grand Theft Auto, because they are violent, but I can't understand him bringing up Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse as they're both tongue in cheek satires of movie cliches of that era (which, I'll point out, was the early nineties, which happened roughly twenty years ago) To be fair, I can understand why video game violence is a problem for this person. It's a relatively new medium. This horrific school shooting put him and his association under a lot of pressure, and video games are an easy scapegoat. But using references to ten and twenty year old examples to prove his point makes his point unreliable, and takes a lot of credibility away from him, it seems.

    man, the hell with what that guy thinks. The murderer was obviously a psycho and the gov doesn't know crap about video games. Video games don't cause people to kill people. Gun don't kill people. People kill people. It's that simple.

    Guns do indeed rarely kill people. The high velocity bullets propelled from guns kill people.
  • wadesmit - December 22, 2012 1:36 a.m.

    They don't propel themselves, those bullets.
  • locke2021 - January 5, 2013 8:12 a.m.

    they don't load themselves, those guns.
  • bigwill1221 - December 21, 2012 10:37 a.m.

    Oi bet they played these games and started to learn guns themselves. Wait no they didn't.
