Just wait. Video games will, in some way, be brought into this shooting’s discussion on the political arena.

I guess they're going to lump all videogames together now to desperately make another attempt at pointing the blame elsewhere. It was always "violent videogames", but now it'll just be videogames in general since this was a Madden tournament.

Let's see if someone somehow blames the anthem protests for this.

As i was watching the news just now they played the video and all the shooting and screaming but they bleeped out the "fuck!" of course. Apparently that's what crosses the line.

They’d get FCC complaints and possibly fines if they aired it

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

The shooter was a 24 year old guy from Baltimore. Pic

I passed by the place last night en route to a Jags game and briefly thought I should stop in there sometime. Guess that's not happening.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Why does this happen? It's the only thing we know, and what we love. Have a problem? Fight!

Hell, just look at these forums, the height of activity comes when we act like dicks to each other and fight about it.

I suppose we could try to act mature and sensitive towards each other, but that's for wimps ...

Yeah, but not ALL THE TIME. Also, wouldn't you say we developed the ability to reason for a ... reason?

I hate to talk like this after a tragedy, but I'm glad as hell it wasn't a Call of Duty tournament.

Same here. Though I'm sure some news show will run some footage of GTA anyway

Being a gamer this one hit me. I know how these gamers can get insane when it comes to rankings and such so it doesn't shock me that this happened.

White guy goes on a mass shooting spree, killing dozens, and, gosh, we, as a society, really let this poor person down.

It's like, after Hurricane Katrina shithammered New Orleans, black people went out looting and white people went out to procure supplies.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Yeah, but in some cases, like San Bernardino, you’ve got the guy’s wife pledging allegiance to al Zarkawi on Facebook while she blasts away at the cops.

It’s mental illness, sure, but of the religious fanatic persuasion.
