Skip to comments.Government, Left Pushes 'Virtual Gun Control'
Posted on 09/28/2013 8:22:53 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Having defeated President Obamas quest to shoot holes in the Second Amendment, a GOP Leadership aide recently told the Huffington Post the House would soon spend time examining the link between link between video games and violence, essentially kicking off a campaign for virtual gun control. Make no mistake; the road to gun control and the road to virtual gun control leads to the same destination restrictions on your liberty.
Part of the fallacy of gun control rests in the belief that in inanimate object can be responsible for the acts of the person in control of it. No one blames a car when a driver uses it irresponsibly, but when someone violates the law by using a gun to commit a crime, the gun control crowd holds the gun responsible. By denying responsible gun owners access to firearms, they argue, we will all be safer. No wonder Vice President Joe Biden could easily propose government restrictions to both gun ownership and video games. They are birds of the same feather.
The same line of reasoning is at play when people blame video games for acts of violence committed by people who are clearly not sane. "Call of Duty" or "Grand Theft Auto" did not cause Adam Lanza to commit the horrific acts at Sandy Hook elementary. Lanza had a long history of mental illness including bouts of Asperergers syndrome and other personality disorders. Details about Aaron Alexis are still emerging but he too had a documented history of mental illness and apparently left a note saying that low frequency radio waves made him do it. Yet some in the media have latched to the claims that these guys were addicted to playing video games as proof of some causal link.....

Examine the link between Democrats and mass shootings.
If you’re a nutjob who wants to shoot people, you’re naturally going to play a video game where you get to shoot people. If you prefer to play golf, you’ll probably play golf video games when you’re not doing the real thing.
But “gun free” zones keep us safe!
Hush! Let the Democraps try to confiscate/outlaw video games like Grand Theft Auto. That will awaken the young to the danger a Fedezilla Government can pose to their freedoms.
Fedzilla had better prepare for hackers attacking on all sides on a 24/7 basis.
Oh good. I still had a single right left that was unmolested. Now they can get rid of that pesky little freedom, too.
I’m sure kids and adults will be ticked when their video games stop being fun.

First they came for the blacks, and I spoke up because it was wrong, even though I’m not black.
Then they came for the gays, and I spoke up, even though I’m not gay.
Then they came for the Muslims, and I spoke up, because it was wrong, even though I’m not a Muslim
When they came for illegal aliens, I spoke up, even though I’m US born
Then they came for the pornographers, rebels and dissenters and their speech and flag burning, and I spoke up, because rights are not only for the establishment.
Then they came for the gun owners, and you liberal turds threw me under the bus, even though I’d done nothing wrong.
So when they come to put you on the train, don’t come crying to me.
I believe the link between a bad economy, no jobs, and an imperial, racist president probably has more to do with gun violence than any video game.
And if you're a normal, heterosexual guy, you'll watch porn, haha.
Deodand...From the Latin, “Deo dandum”: To be given to God...A concept and custom most have thought to have died out, but apparently not so in some circles...Leftards/Gun Grabbers in particular...
An object or instrument that was to be forfeit (to the King) because “it” had caused the death of another human...
Gun buybacks treat the objects as deodands...As if the guns possess power to take a life by themselves...
Similar beliefs can be found among “primitive” animists who attribute mind and motivations, life forces and powers to objects, often ignoring the voluntary acts of those humans who wield the objects...
