    Sounds to me like ignorant gun owners are also scumbags for putting other people's, and perhaps their own, lives at risk of injury or death.

    But, WTF? Maybe we should put guns into the hands of everyone - the Darwin Awards will have a field-day!

    Typical lefty leaves out most of the vital info to support his twisted narrative. Its mostly chicago in the whole state and mostly just a couple blocks within that city. Most of the guns used are not registered. Also you may wanna look over to the UK were they use knifes instead.

    But hey sure, take away the guns from the law abiding citizens and do nothing against the criminals.

    You're purposely misconstruing what I am saying and also those organizations you mentioned are not the militia.

    LOL the redirect\distract game being played once again I see so that they don't actually have to deal with the broad list of issues that lead to this type of violence.

    I doubt they have a clue as to what the real issues are...

    In the olden times people watched public executions and torture, I hardly think violent video games are to blame.

    "You know, I'm a video gamer, I game. Some people say I'm the best gamer there has ever been. So many games. Sonic the Plumber, Call of Doody, I've beat them bigly. Grandma's Auto Theft, I tell you, some people say they've never seen a better video gamer than me, not like Crooked Hillary, I beat her in Mario's Cart, you know? She loves violence, all violence, especially video game violence. I told her, "look, you can't do that, you just can't." Y'know, Minecraft. That's a game. I actually invented Minecraft, people may not know that, but it's where I first tried building a really yuuuge wall."

    - Trump, 2018, probably.

    I just think that getting this conversations about GUNS in the video game scope is dumb... Talk about the real guns, video game violence is not the root cause of this.

    Edit: I'm not saying real guns cause violence, I'm just trying to say they should talk about REAL causes of violence... not video games. Like problems in the education system, poverty, social tension, yada yada yada... But noooo mister Big president must talk about video game.
    At least he could choose a better smoke screen than the old dead horse video game violence...

    Sadly it's just part of the usual playbook.

    Here's the timeline:
    Shooting happens - immediate thoughts and prayers
    The next day "it's too soon to talk about gun laws"
    The next day: "this is being politicised, it's still too soon to talk about guns"
    The day after that: "I think we need to take a look at video games..."
