It's only natural. The world has been regressing since the turn of the decade, so it makes sense that we're entering that 90's mentality again.



So many things wrong with this thread, and I'm guessing the OP won't bother making corrections unfortunately. Is it that hard to hit the edit button and issue a mea culpa?



Changed the thread title.

But yeah, this is pretty hilarious.
Remove imagery of violent games, but they still have actual guns in the store.
Why stop there though? They should have a 7 day waiting period for buying videogames as well.
That'll reduce the mass shootings.

Unless... the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a videogame is a good guy with a videogame?

Galaxy brain!

I see Nonsensical Rifle Addiction is still a thing in the Usa.

Lol, is this because of Trump blaming games? This is irrationally reckless for a businessman. The games industry makes more money that the majority of industries in 2019.
Boris Johnson should make an open statement to the American games industry who make violent games, asking them to come to Britain instead.
"If your a company who produces violent games and you feel any resentment against Trump's stance against the American games industry, then advertise all you like here, even bring the whole company here out of spite too" XD.
Trump would hate that lol. He would absolutely hate loosing any pillars of 'his' economy.

P.S. Realistically, I doubt Wallmart's policy on this will last for long anyway because after the blame-game disappears from the public's consciousness, their business-mindset will soon kick in.

This move by the corporate hillbillies at Wal-Mart is most likely more due to Trump giving his mentally r*****ed opinion on the topic than it is due to the actual, ongoing issue of gun powered mass murder.

Phew, thank God for that. Now Americans should be safe and mass shootings should now finally be over. Glad they got to the bottom of that.



According to their statement, Walmart is simply removing violent imagery from their stores for a short period, out of deference to people that have been affected by the recent events.  They're not saying video games are a problem.  In factz they have specifically said they are not changing their games lineup, or anything else.  They're just making a nice gesture while people are feeling uneasy.



So you want them to stop selling guns? But what if a gunman goes nuts near me? I wanna buy a gun so that I may defend myself against said gunman if such a situation were to develop...
