The lights are on
"I think video games is a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people," the senator from Tennessee told MSNBC in response to a question about proposed gun control legislation that would require universal background checks.
Words fail me.
Failing the ability to live in a world where viewpoints like this weren't part of the political mainstream, I'd settle for a world where people like Senator Alexander had legitimate, good-faith discussions with folks like Adam Sessler instead of grandstanding about how (to uncharitably paraphrase the Senator) guns don't kill people, video games kill people.
Yeah, yeah, yeah... dodging the universal backround check question.
Thanks senator, I'll be sure to carry a video game with me at all times. And if I see a gunman I'll just whip out my game and send 'em running.
@ EVERYONE ON THIS POST I APOLOGIZE FOR MY TENN. JOKE.
why focus on games?! focus on movies/videos and tv series/shows!
well gee, I guess that explains why I go out wearing a suit and tie, then choke out random people and steal their clothes then act as if I am in that person's profession until my target comes around the corner for me to eliminate them (Hitman)........
Oh wait, I don't do that, I guess this guy's just another jackass that don't know ***
Sigh...more ignorance by those who have been elected to help represent or run this country (as in trying to place the blame on video games as one of the major reasons for all of the recent gun violence).
if your gonna use that logic senetor: then complain about TV also, it effects people: how bout the internet also, i blame my dirty mind on the internet. Heck, lets go all the way.... BAN ALL U.S. PRODUCTIVITY. lets all be boring and do nothing: then nothing will affect people.
Mr. I didn't grow up with video games lol Like all the worlds wars were caused by video games.
Old men argue and dispute, war breaks out, and the youth have to die for their arguments.
Oh, and I almost forgot, doesn't the government advertise the military in video games?.....I rest my case Mr. Senator.
Yep, video games are far worse than guns. A form of entertainment that is mostly harmless has killed far more people than a real world weapon that has been used by men to kill their fellow men since the 1400s. Makes total sense.
Why can't people open their eyes for once and realise that there are twisted, sadistic people in this world instead of pointing the finger at video games?
Ok, *** him! Can you say, 'Agenda?'
Well...screw him. Idiot doesn't understand that Mental Illness problems it the real answer to all these problems. We know NOTHING about what goes on in people's heads when they do crazy things. NOTHING! Even this is a truer reason.
Video Games are not the problem. It is like the gun. PEOPLE ARE THE PROBLEM! PEOPLE!!! P-E-O-P-L-E. PEOPLE!!!!!!!! After all People kill people. Not guns or video games. They are nothing but tools.
Video Games have yet grown an AI Brain to end up creating Robots that start slaughtering people with guns.
So we are safe....for now.
he is partialy right guns do not kill you....bulletsdo(:
on a more seriouse note maybe they should instead of use video games as scape goats just get rid of the real problem witch is the news.
Just when I thought that politicians couldn't get any dumber...
Wait, come again? How exactly do guns NOT affect people? A gun is a real, tangible weapon designed to defend and/or kill. A video game is not.
He is right , video games just made me wanna KILL HIM
This man is worse than guns.
NRA and Republicans: serving each others interests since God only knows.
