Wrong



There are a number of countries with the same percentage of single parent households as America, why aren't they experiencing mass shootings ever other week?

Its not video games, its not single parent households, its GUNS. End of.

Yeah, otherwise we should all become pirates since a decline in their numbers correlates with global warming.

Or if we want more people to get civil engineering doctorates, we should eat more mozzarella cheese.

Does Walmart even sell guns anywhere besides Alaska?

Will they be pulling DVD movies too?



I watched a doozy the other night that really got me thinking about how twisted the Left is.



Hollywood is run by Liberals and many actors are anti gun Democrats so why do they keep making violent movies that feature guns and murder?



The movie I saw was called "Peppermint" and it featured Jennifer Garner as a mom that lost her husband and child to cartel violence. The ruthless gang was made up of very stereotypical Mexicans and she mowed through them with guns blazing in a blood splattered tempest of vigilante justice with close up views of the bad guys being shot in the head and face.

Peppermint gave John Wick a run for his body count tally..


I wonder if Walmart in the is feel good motion will also remove violent DVD's ?

It seems to work for gun control advocates...

They are using this as an excuse to get out of selling games instore. If it wasn't for holiday traffic I think they would have stopped 1-2 years ago.


The gaming industry is moving to all digital so the writing was on the wall, they are just trying to score some political "Good Will" with the public.

We are? I've never seen a chart adjusted for population levels showing that trend but if you have one I'd love to see it.

There may be more now due to copy-cat actions, media coverage or a host of other issues but I've never seen even a basic study on the issue let a lone a more advanced one trying to assign causation.

Not clear on whether they are only removing signs depicting violent imagery, or actual violent video games.

Edit: apparently they still sell everything they sold before, it's just that they are not putting up displays of violent video games or playing violent movies/shows on their TVs.
News flash - Most stores have traditionally sold guns throughout our countries history, yet we rarely had a mass shooting.
Violent video games are a newer phenomenon within the last 30 years, and now we are having a lot more mass shootings.

Love or hate guns, this is not a gun problem as there has always been access to them.
Instead it is a cultural, morals, and parenting problem. Allowing kids to be babysat by watching violent TV and play gratuitously violent video games contributes to our moral decay.
Also not getting kids and adults with mental illness treatment and having them flagged as people who should be prohibited (at least until receiving treatment and getting better) from buying guns should be in place.
