Forums - General Discussion - Florida Pulse gay club attacked.

Of afghani descent. I am definitely not surprised by the anti gay sentiment from this guy just like I wouldn't have been if the attacker was a white guy who attended the Westboro Baptist Church PC police has to stop it and call a spade a spade. Anyways I'm on chapter Cow in the Quaran since it was gifted by a more down to earth friend.



Make games, not war (that goes for ridiculous fanboys)

I may be the next Maelstorm or not, you be the judge http://videogamesgrow.blogspot.com/  hopefully I can be more of an asset than a fanboy to VGC hehe.

You can't lecture anyone if you're ignorant of the socio-political issues that put people into the position to attack each-other with guns. Most of these "mass shootings" are gang-warfare caused by the failed war on drugs - something Europe doesn't have at the extent nor scale that the U.S has. 

Failed war on drugs tha that Europa doesn't have? Sounds like you don't really know everything going on in Europe.

So the multitude of mentally unstable, radical or white supremacist shootings are actually gang warfare? Is that it? Don't think so.

Do you have hundreds of cartels created by drug prohibition south of (and within) your borders? Do you have entire portions of cities in which the top employment opportunity for the impoverished is the sale of drugs and the criminal activity relevant to maintain it? Do you have mass incarceration, the highest in the world, of drug users and sellers? Felony records making it impossible for drugs users or gang members to reform themselves? Do places like Portugal, where the decriminalization of hard drugs has occured successfully, not exist in Europe? 

As for the radical white supremacist groups, what percentage of these "133 mass shootings" consist of that? The last one I can think of was Dylan Roof, and I really can't think of what the last one was before him. They are obvioulsy the 1% of the 1% of the 1% of total shootings. Hardly anything to get worked up about statistically.

Yup, ISIS. Also deathtoll has surpassed 50.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

"There is no immediate evidence proving any connection between the Orlando shooting and Islamic State or any other foreign extremist organization, US officials told Reuters on condition of anonymity."

Not to mention, saying it was an attack by ISIS is more beneficial then saying it was one nutjob acting on his own agenda.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Minute I saw shooting, I knew it was going to be a Muslim. I rarely see shootings from non muslims reach huge headlines :/ You know what though? It's annoying how this is suddenly every muslim's fault, but when a christian goes ape shit and shoots people, there's always an excuse. He was young, got bullied, etc etc. Can we admit both groups are crazy? Also, seeing this makes me realize why we can't be super open with guns. We need some sort of restriction. It's unforunate, but that's life.

Guess I'll have fun with more random "security" checks from here on out. I'm predicting 7 breaking news terror attacks from now to the end of the month. I'm also predicting around 15 breaking news terror attacks from now to the elections for the US.

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

 Do you get searched upon entering Chicago???? Not being allowed to own guns in Chicago is irrelevant when you can get them elsewhere in the states. Until the whole Country is a gun free zone gun crime won't stop. A "gun free" zone is irrelevant when you can just grab a fire arm outside that zone and bring it in.

You can't just drive to another state, buy a weapon, and drive back to your state like everything is fine and dandy. 

 

If you go out of state and purchase a gun at a gun shop, that gun will have to get shipped to a FFL (Federal Firearm License) holder in your state. After a few days the license holder in your state will have the gun. You pay a small fee, get your backround checked and you're ready to own your gun.  

 

"Until the whole Country is  a gun free zone gun crime won't stop"

 

Just like the war on drugs made the USA a drug free zone right



Just going to leave this here.

I hope people realize that doing nothing isn't working...



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

How often and to what extent do Christians kill people because of their religious beliefs and get away with it?  There are plenty of fundamentalist Christians who don't like gay people, but I can't think of one in recent ages that has gone and killed them at this scale or in this manner? The recent abortion clinic shooting was by a christian man, and the media (and president) rightly outed him as such.

I don't think anybody is addressing all Muslims either, but it is obvious that like Christianity, there is a ton of hateful stuff taught and spread (and not only to the "extremists") - and just as we oppose Christianity's spread of hate we should also oppose Islam's spread of hate, we all live in secular societies afterall. 



This is the worst mass shooting in the US history? 50 people dead goddamn



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.
