Prize of idiot of the month goes to: NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre

âEUoeGuns donâEUTMt kill people. Video games, the media and ObamaâEUTMs budget kill people... There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people, through vicious, violent video games with names like âEU~Bulletstorm,âEUTM âEU~Grand Theft Auto,âEUTM âEU~Mortal KombatâEUTM and âEU~Splatterhouse.âEUTMâEU

What do you guys think?

I think I'll use my freedom of speech while I still can and make a video game that lets you shoot him in the head. Oh wait, someone already beat me to it.

Still, more people are killed by guns. You're not proving anything, however your story is cool! You should do this to the whole NRA.

If graphic violence encouraged real-life violence, all horror/gore enthusiasts (including myself) would be aspiring serial killers...

It's been scientifically proved that Cho did Virginia Tech massacre because of Pac man.

That's an awesome game. The devs are probably ones of the best trolls IRL ever.

tsk... video game apologists popping up. i don't think it's any surprise, really. the young boys who use these boards tend to be partial to video games. no amount of snarky remarks and edgy sarcasm is going to argue in favour of video games, it only goes to show how detached and disillusioned video game apologists are

I do think that the NRA is indeed consistent on its views, since the game is only target practice. But that doesn't mean I like the NRA any more. If you really want to keep schools safe, give everyone a riot shield, not a gun.

I think the NRA needs a new spokesman. I can't believe he came out and started pointing at video games, movies, the media, etc, for sharing in the blame. Think of all the NRA members that probably play games like Call of Duty. Good luck getting them to renew their memberships.

I gave it a shot. I threw it at my older brother. All that happened was him saying "FUCK, I'M GETTING MY SHIT PUSHED IN HERE!". Seems rather accurate for BF3.

Video games only cause suicide.

Because you die so many times in game.

There was a clever metaphor in here somewhere, but I'm not nearly clever enough to pull it off. Forgive me.

If you don't like the environment here then why are you still around? Besides, it's only logical saying that this guy's statement is absolute bullsh**.

Honestly, I'd like to see call of duty discontinued. If the NRA can get that game to stop being produced, I'd like that a lot. Then Halo can come back to being the most popular fps.

your kidding right...
many of the NRA members only renew their membership because the amount is heavily discounted and they get magazines with the subscription that will keep them up to date with new technologies for scopes, rifels, and bullets...

plus hunting ground maps, locations for out board, land, area hunting, fishing, trapping...

what brings the people back is knoledge.. ... many dont even care about the state of what their club actually holds it self to as long as they know where good locations are to hunt and or fish or trap.. they are happy...

think of a german citizen vs what the german government was doing from 1939 to 1945...
many did care yeah but did not care enough to get into it... they simply went about their lives and anyone that wanted to get into it, was free to do so and contribute
