Skip to comments.Bidenís Single Good Idea: Study Effects Of Violence In Media
Posted on 02/24/2013 1:54:25 PM PST by TurboZamboni
Let the private sector do the study. Let a bunch of different private-sector researchers do the study so that they can be reviewed by one another, their notes compared, their ideas bounced around.
Biden is also either a liar or has been grounded from reading newspapers or news sites, because he also claimed that the NRA doesnt want such studies to be conducted.
Biden might want to tell NRA president Wayne LaPierre that his opinion is not actually his opinion, because Bidens claim of LaPierres beliefs certainly seems to contradict LaPierres actual beliefs. Heres LaPierre himself:
And heres another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal: There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people. Through vicious, violent video games with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse. And heres one: its called Kindergarten Killers. Its been online for 10 years. How come my research department could find it and all of yours either couldnt or didnt want anyone to know you had found it?

I don’t know the one about women carrying shotguns instead of pistols was pretty good.
If Biden has a good idea, then its clear he stole it from someone else.
“And heres one: its called Kindergarten Killers. Its been online for 10 years.”
How could this possibly remain online at all, much less for a decade or more?
The likes of this should be a major part of Newtown’s investigation I would think. Somehow I doubt it is, though.
Too bad (or how convenient?) that Lanza’s hard drive was smashed that day.
I wonder if they’ll investigate all of those songs we used to sing on the bus all of those years ago, like:
Mine eyes have seen the glory
Of the burning of the school
We have tortured every teacher
We have broken every rule
We went to the office and we hung the principal
Our truth is marching on....
Glory, glory hallelujah.
Teacher hit me with a ruler
Shot her with a .44
And she fell to the floor
And she ain’t our teacher no more.
And you’re point is...?
Surely you’re not equating that type of adolescent behavior with violent videogames of today I hope.
Because that would make you somewhere between a fool and an idiot.
What percentage of people playing those games went on the commit any violent acts in real life?
It’s a red herring to deflect from looking at the real problem, the breakdown of the family.
How about ‘Study Effects of Removing Discipline From the Schools’?
Not so - wish it was true...
Biden and elite liberals are worried about pictures of black gangs beating up white people. Or ten blacks beating up a white, hispanic or asian student... Turns out newspapers can suppress the race of monsters, but YouTube can't.... THAT'S the 'violence' he's worried about people seeing... Also known as 'the truth' of what's happening...
Turbo - are you saying your local paper hasn't done a piece on this? Dems are worried blacks look bad when they post videos of their own violence.
I don[’t consider it a “good idea”. He wants to “regulate” guns, but only “study” violence. If he studied gun control, too, he’d find that it doesn’t stop gun violence.
“What percentage of people playing those games went on the commit any violent acts in real life?”
I don’t know. But then again neither do you.
I was never addressing the ‘root cause’ of mass shootings, but since you brought it up - sure, the breakdown of the family is a prime reason we see these senseless murders. But it’s hard to argue there are not contributing factors as well.
