if our government was carpet bombing US residence I certainly hope MANY people would resist.

Apparently that game only allows you to enter a shooting range and shoot paper targets, sporting clays, and watermelons.

Wikipedia actually has it listed under "non-violent games"

Which is to say, I don't see any reason anybody would have an issue with that NRA video game (as it displays responsible use of firearms), nor is it really hypocritical.

Am I the only one that keeps looking at the thread title and thinking it says "NBA vs Videogames"?

Well, EA has taken a strong stance against NBA video games for the last two years.

Oh absolutely. Where this started was Johns stated that if the government was just flattening everyone that there wouldn't be too much hope of fighting back. It kinda went off the trail some. Nobody would stand by who had any decency, it's just hope for success would be, well, farfetched. A little thing called being realistic.

Long box PS1 games would finally have an advantage!

If you come up with a way to separate the responsible gun owners from the irresponsible ones and ensure that they follow through with responsible behavior, that'd be a great start. But the NRA has been trying to argue the free market of personal responsibility for years, and it clearly doesn't work.

Your post does remind me of some things, though. Some of the hoops people jump through in Japan before getting licensed to own a hunting rifle or shotgun:
Gun safety course
Shooting proficiency test
Written and psychological exams
Police-verified safe storage (like a gun safe)

Can we at least agree on any of these as no-brainer steps toward safer gun ownership?

As long as a prospective license-holder has an adequate time to learn how to shoot BEFORE the test is given, no problem.

Can you think of a way to separate responsible drivers and irresponsible drivers to reduce all of the traffic fatalities in the US by removing the irresponsible ones?

That would be awsome as long as we can do 2 v 2 MJ and Larry bird v Kratos and Masterchief.

I'm sorry your assumption that I like semi-automatic weapons didn't pan out, but I think I've made it pretty clear I don't like pretty much any guns.

I've got a ten spot on MJ and Larry Bird, as long as we're talking 26 year old versions of those guys.

Thats an extreme case that I hope never happens but. I would think some of the armed forces in this country would defect and join the rebels bringing weapons with them if it came down to that.

DVvM says:
Well, can you give me a reason as to why a bolt, lever, or pump action weapon or a revolver would be permissible while a semi-automatic weapon would not? You understand that the only thing the semi-automatic action does is "eject the spent casing and chamber a new round" and that each shot requires a separate squeeze of the trigger, right?

I mean, it's not like in hunting there are not many situations in which you have cause to fire several shots in short succession.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 21, 2012 2:10:35 PM PST
Agreed. It is basically about what the NRA promotes. It is unfortunate that reactionary gamers are giving it bad reviews now.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 21, 2012 2:12:06 PM PST
I'm okay with all of those, actually.

I don't think you read my post all the way through. Or maybe at all.

Me no like gun. You think me like semi-auto gun. Me no like any gun.

A State of Disobedience

This book is basically about that, just more political.

DVvM says:
Well "let's ban all the guns" isn't even a reasonable perspective on this issue (since it's, for example, unconstitutional).

But if any guns are acceptable, semi-automatic ones probably should be as well.

No, no you're not. Especially with that confusing Flopping Rule thread going past occasionally.

Maybe muzzleloaders?

I don't have the energy to argue with someone whose only interest is arguing with the words he puts in my mouth and not what I actually said. I just don't care.

Well, if you're simply "opposed to guns", then either you're simply wrong or you would be happier living in a country that does not guarantee the right to their ownership in the Constitution, no offense intended.

The notion of regulating civilian gun ownership is not contrary to the 2nd Amendment. It's specifically referenced within it.
