Y'know what? I'm sick of this shit. Why is it that these shootings happen in America? What is it about Europe that they don't have all these shootings? This obviously has nothing to do with automatic weapons. If you really wanted to kill someone, you'd use any weapon! If we're to ban guns, let's ban everything but handguns, shotguns, muskets, antiques, and crossbows. We'll keep those for hunting, sports, collecting, and self-defense. Everything else is unnecessary. Why does it seem like shootings are at a peak this past year? Or are they always this common, but just swept under the carpet by the industry? Let's face it. Kids are mean, bullying will always happen. That doesn't mean you need to shoot people! The media is to blame for this. 1. They make the shooters famous. 2. Call of Duty. There are fucking SEVEN YEAR OLDS playing MW3 online, learning the worst words from older kids playing, these little shits think they're so cool, and they grow up to be little douches because they play M rated games and swear at such a young age it completely fucks them up. 3. Movies. The Dark Knight Rises was awesome! But the amount of violence in it? Jesus! And again, seven year olds want to see a Batman movie, but the new ones simply aren't appropriate. Also, I think single-parents have an effect on psychological shit and stuff that really screws up kids, especially if the parent works a lot or is a complete whore.
Okay so let me tell you that the accessable violent media you blame for all this, exists in ALL counries? In European ones, in Australia, in Asia....everywhere.
I do see young kids playing ego-shooters and violent games here too. I see young adolescents watching movies that are 18+ based on their brutality.
I have seen violent movies, I have practically been raised by a single mom and have been bullied in school too. Now do I shoot someone? No.
You say even if I would want to, I could just grab a gun. No I couldn't because in Europe you can't just "grab a gun" you know?
And that is why this shit happens a lot less here....A LOT LESS. You know why we don't need no fucking gun for "self defense"? Because there are no other people with guns you would have to defend yourself against in the first place.
The Media we have in Europe or anywhere else is the same as in the US. The same violent, the same inappropriate and the same accessable for youngsters.
Yet they CAN NOT just grab a gun because they legally own it and start a shooting.
That's the point...you can't blame the gun violence in America on shooting games while we have the same ones here and not nearly as much problems with shootings.
