If you think games aren't dangerous, try licking a switch cartridge.



This white rapper explains that guns don't kill people.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I don't really shop at Walmart myself. I only go there about once a month for my prescription, because the other pharmacies charge way more.

This just shows the stupidity of Walmart, a lot of their shoppers, and a lot of politicians. Many studies have proven there isn't a clear link between violent video games and shootings. A lot of the shooters didn't even play games much, if at all.

On the upside... at least this whole shit has led to some fun meme's coming out about it.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Walmart aren't really imbeciles or think games are culprit. It's just that they will avoid anything that can hurt their profits, like public uphoar.

Want to cut down most of your gun violence? It's obvious where the vast majority of US gun violence comes from. It's fairly easy. Just make up a set of rules that prevents the following sorts of people from having a gun license.

1. No virgins.
2. No one belonging to a loser/loner/antisocial movement of some sort (MRA/incel, 8chan, etc..).
3. No one who without an active in-person (not online/chat) social life.

It won't prevent all gun violence, but it will probably cut down annual mass shootings in the US from 400+ to under 5 per year. Additionally, it will likely drop the suicide rate significantly since the people who shoot themselves will have to try other less-effective means.

ironically its discrimination of this sort that apparently drives these people to seek retribution on the world at large

but the kicker here is that it seems to be fairly common that the people who claim to want to flatten out hierarchies ( leftists,progressives,etc ) jump enthusiastically to discriminate against these people for being at the bottom of a perceived hierarchy

now checking social media would be fairly easy I suppose, but regardless, what tests would you establish to check whether a potential gun owner is a virgin or not? would these tests be administered to women also? who would administer these tests?

"Additionally, it will likely drop the suicide rate significantly since the people who shoot themselves will have to try other less-effective means."

trans people have the highest suicide rates supposedly, would you also strip them of their rights to defend themselves?

Establishing risk factors based on key behavioural issues is an acceptable means of classification for risk factors; discrimination would be unjustified categorization on the grounds of race, religion, and gender. You wouldn't give the keys of the liquor storage to an alcoholic, or access to the vault to a crackhead. Establishing whether someone isn't a virgin is fairly easy, check marital/relationship status, you could also get vouchers.

I don't think any of my points disqualify trans people in particular. So that point of yours is not relevant.

No one I listed are people in the categories I listed necessarily at the bottom of a hierarchy; I am sure many virgin loser-antisocial types live in the basements of quite wealthy parental households. 

I apologize for offending you. But I'll remind you that I did not give you offence, you took it.

Good old content bump, everyone loves a content bump.

Wal-Mart has three changes coming.
A) Alaska will no longer sell hand guns (apparently this is the only state they did this in?)
B) They will no longer sell certain types of ammo, after they have used up their current stock.
C) They will be asking (I don't know if this goes as far as banning?) people to no longer open carry in wal-mart or sams club.
