“I mean you want to ban an object because it may make people think about killing. I’ve already actually done killing and could care less about your stupid video games. What would you have in store for me with your knee jerk reactions?

It’s not about THINKING about killing. Calm down and re-read the head-thread: it’s about BEHAVIORAL CONDITIONNING:


Ok........would not KILLING be "Behavioral Conditioning" for.....gee, I don't know MORE KILLING?

So, can you now answer my question posed twice in previous posts?

If not, just say it is about "feeling good." ie there has to be a cause for the affect. Something/someone has to take the blame for the deaths of 20 school children; so it is evil guns, medication, FPS games....what have you. The real culprit, the killer committed suicide and therefore is not around for the public to vent its wrath at.

But, it "feels good" to find a scapegoat and make it the "cause" therefore we can easily work to eliminate this cause and the innocent bystanders' rights be damned.

If it isn't about feeling good....then respond - it is about control. Situations like Columbine and Sandy Hook make you and others like you feel powerless and without control. By "doing something" and taking "decisive action" to "fix" the problem it puts you back in "control" and rebuilds your ego. We identified the problem as video games, assault rifles, and high capacity socket wrenches and are taking control of the situation and the problem is solved.

Any which way, don't sit here and try to pawn off some BS about a video game made me do it and we NEED to ban them. Because in the end sick people will still do sick things.

Further, don't insult everyone by trying to say you are a conservative and not the enemy when you are trying to infringe upon everyone else for the actions of one individual.........NeWs FlAsH - that is NOT a conservative response.

The good thing about this discussion is the practice for when they start the ban calls on everything rapid fire.

As to your questions...Heh...fat chance of an answer. but then you already know that ;)
