Disturbing Video Game Has Players Shoot NRA Leaders

I saw something today that upset and deeply disturbed me. I was walking past my son's bedroom, where he spends all his time on his computer playing those damn games of his. I stopped when I heard the sound of Wayne LaPierre's voice as he gave his speech about the Newtown massacre. I was surprised my son, who is just 14, was getting involved in anything political, but I was glad he was exposing himself to the right people. I opened the door, intending to tell him how proud I was, when the image on the screen stopped me cold. It was not, as I suspected, a video of Wayne LaPierre's speech, but was in fact a virtual recreation of the event, a video game. And in the game was a virtual Wayne LaPierre, standing at his podium, giving his speech... with a crosshair over his head. Before I could even utter a word to scold my child, he clicked his mouse. And the virtual Wayne LaPierre's face disappeared in a spray of blood.

I was horrified. I must have yelled at him for hours. I demanded to know where he got this game, and he showed me the thread on a website called "facepunch". You can see it for yourself here: http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1239566&p=39218703

My son has since been banned from all video games and I had my computer-gifted daughter set up blocks on his machine so he can no longer access his game sites, at least for the time being.

The media in this country is out of control, and this is a perfect example. Movies and music and games have been getting more and more violent, and now we have game-people making threats against real leaders who speak out against this trend, and in defense of our right to bear arms. This needs to be held up as an example of what's wrong with our country, and what we need to change about our culture.

Now I'm a simple man. I love my God, my country, and my family. Heaven for me is a plate of mashed potatoes and a slice of corn-fed Iowa steak. I don't know much about computers and I don't usually involve myself in politics. This is my first time "posting" anything in fact; my daughter has been helping me write this. But seeing that horrible game brought something out in me. I don't know what, but something has to be done about this. This culture of violence corrupts our kids, and could very well cause the next Newtown. I'll be damned if I'm just gonna sit by and watch it happen.

If the kid does something extremely bad there is the punishment of last resort.

You can force him to watch Scott Ryan videos.

Dude, at 47 I am nowhere near capable of handling that kind of torture on a sustained basis. To do it to a 14 YO?

There’s Geneva conventions and International treaties to ban that level of torture.

Say....You weren’t one of those fascists that Bushutler had working for...

SEE?!?! A quick look at that moron and I lost my mind!

Sorry to sound skeptical, but your post seems disenginous. My feeling is that you joined FR to post this and then observe our reactions.

I have yet to meet a FReeper who is “apolitical.”

If I’m wrong, I apologize and welcome you to FR.

The game site,EDF, is Swedish. It follows the EU and particularly the Scandinavian obsession with destroying and disarming the traditional American society.

Sheez, sorry for the multiple post folks, I was using my wife’s IPAD.

Guess I better go back to I-school for training.

You need help, not your son.

This smacks as a bit of over reaction to me. The media (?) or a couple of (liberal?) college kids having fun? Millions of kids (and adults) play video games. Millions of people own guns. A few nuts kill people. I think the problem is a combination of sick brains and truly evil people.

Don't get me wrong, I am not advocating games where leaders are used as targets. I just think there is an easier answer to the Newtown tragedy: evil exists in the world. Everything else is just a reach for control over a situation which we likely have none. My 2-cents.

Replies can be made via Private reply, as your posts will still be in the delay loop.
It would be nice if a Welcome to FR was applicable here.

Actually, I think the private reply feature is blocked at first.

I was banned, after reinstatement the private reply feature had a message that said "your account is too new to use this feature" for a good week or so.
