Matthew Murray, who killed four people and wounded several others during a pair of horrific church shootings over the weekend, apparently wasn't permitted to play video games while growing up.
In your face Jack Thompson. While I feel sorry for the victims, it's really good news against those game haters. Take that JT, Arnold, Hillary, Senator L and others. This shooter WASN'T allowed to play games thanks to his stupid parents. What are you going to blame now? Polution!? UPDATE: Sadly he did play games a bit. I bet Jack Thompson will come out with a new strategy and twist this story in his favor somehow. He might say that if the kid had played more games, he would have killed more people including his parents.
Jack Thompson is an asshole, we all know this.
True. He twists and abuses everything to fight games. He even used 9/11 to justify his crusade against games which is beyond shamefull and wrong. Wonder how he will twist this one in his own advantage.
I wont be surprised if Adam plunged his tooth into the forbidden fruit because of computer games!
lol, Good one. Bubbles for you :) That is definitly what's written in Jack Thompson's bible.
Access to guns and gun culture in the US.
Hey leave my guns alone! Guns don't kill people... crazy people do...
No, of course not. The rest of the world's anti-gun culture is really preventing those random shootings. Just like in Finland. *gasp!* I feel much safer in my home with a pistol than I do without one in the home. At least I know I have a chance of defending myself and my loved ones from stupid tripped out cocaine addict or drunk-ass 8th year senior who thinks he owns the world. Also there is a fundamental reason why our consitution provides us with the second amendment. It gives us the right to protect ourselves against the government. That was one of the beefs for the Revolutionary War. The English Monarchs would only allow military personal to use guns so they could control the people with maximum force. Now when your people are armed, you have to think again about using force against them.
This is another proof that video games are not reason for this kind of shootings, its simply gun control. They should not have allowed this kid to posses a fire arm. That is just wrong.
I'll bet if his parents had let him play video games, listen to music and watch all those popular movies, he wouldn't have all that anger build up in side of him. That rage could have been put to good use in halo, or fight night. I mean no disrespect to the victims and their families but it would seem fitting that he lashed-out at the people he felt had imprisoned him from the rest of the world. as for parents, let your kids play as much games as they like, but do your job and LOOK AT THE AGE RATING OF A GAME BEFORE YOU BUY IT SO THAT PRETEEN OF YOURS DOESN'T BECOME EXPOSED TO ALL THE EVILS OF M RATED GAMES AND ALL THOSE BAD WORDS AND IDEALS(RACISM, SEXISM, HOMOPHOBIA, etc.) GOING THROUGH THAT HEADSET.
video games are not dangerous crazy fools are dangerous
***** News Flash ****** In breaking news today, Ignorant close minded parents were shocked today as their son went on a rampage in their local church. The parents when reached for comment said, "We sheltered him from everything bad. In fact we never let him do anything but read the bible and go to church. I just don't understand". Yep, I can't see where parents like this go wrong either.....Hmmmmmmm, That's a Mystery.
Great, bubble worthy comment. Mystery indeed.
maybe the reason his parents should have let him play video games so he would have taken out some of that anger in Halo... you Jack Thompson video games reduce stress
Something tells me we won't be seeing this on the news anytime soon.
He was raised in the "ideal" of people like Jack Thompson and others who condemn games. Very much a church going individual, with strict parents who obviously tried to control what media he was allowed to see, hear and read. He even attended missionary training at the first location that he attacked. Basically, he was raised perfectly in the eyes of many of the people who would attack our hobby and otherwise blame the media for people that do these sorts of things. Of course, he did share one characteristic with many of the people who have performed similar acts; he was nucking futs.
no i just wont. well mabey just a small bit.. Right to bear Arm's, Strict Church Folk , todays teen's = errr what happend, Sorry to say but most likely woundnt happin anywhere eles. And from a side note why dosnt that Evengelist Jake~T take on the NRA for the GUN KILLING insted of a "dose sh!t when the power go's out" Video game? But enough of real life back to UT3 (I hate reallife to BS)
lol Yeah basically. Unreal Tournament 3> Real life 1
