technically, guns nor video games kill people, people that have guns and possibly have been drinking kill people.


beyond that, why not just set up a bear trap outside your door, next to it put a sign saying "bear trap is to keep bear inside apartment only!", that would screw with some would be thieves!

I wish to meet your Dad online one day (and be on his team!)

I don't think we'd ever lose, and the micspammers would probably have their eardrums burst by your Dad screaming at them for daring to "TRY AND BRAINWASH ME WITH YOUR SUBLIMINAL COMMIE BASTARD MESSAGES AND YOUR DAMN, BEATING RAPE-MUSIC!"

Umm... I have to give you much regard for taking care of your father while his mind slips, but you really shouldn't have left a man with such a tenuous grasp of reality with a firm grasp on a fire arm. Dude, he could have killed somebody and Illinois would have forced him into a home.

So, yeah, I would not recommend that you own a firearm (or, for that matter, a sword).

"You see, the commies always come in packs. Sometimes there are heavily armored ones: those you have to smack with the butt of your gun, spin them around, and shoot them in the back. Back in Korea, I remember a big fat commie that exploded and attracted other reds by the spray of his guts. War is hell, son, and a shotgun might be your only friend."

Hahahahahah! Love those Zommbunists...

It is hard to make out what may or maynot be true. However my Xbox has been stolen twice this year, my last replacement not a month ago. Unfortunitly after dropping $433 on my new system I couldnt possibly replace it after it got stolen ten days after I got it.(Not all of us have cushy Jobs for a gaming magazine)

I feel your pain, it blows. And theives are too smart to pawn it now so its just sitting somewhere probably not being played(Didnt take any games, dummies my games where in a drawer right below) I payed 433 dollars for my Xbox to sit somewhere.

But guns are not the answer, I carry a Mace gun(when I say gun yes its a gun that shoots mace) but thats just mace. Mace would only be lethal if I sprayed it up someones nose. You wanna protect your home? Cameras. Cameras everywhere, and not just that special alarms that go off if someone tried to take it. Go to your nearest security store, or somewhere that sells survelience.

In response to he title:

In reality, neither games or gun kill people. People kill people. its just that guns, knives, and other dangerous stuff are just instruments.

I've never been robbed before. Thanks god, that would suck. I'd probably never trust anyone ever again if that happened to me.

May I quote?

"The National Rifle Association says that, "Guns don't kill people, people do," but I think the gun helps, you know? I think it helps. I just think just standing there going, "Bang!" That's not going to kill too many people, is it? You'd have to be really dodgy on the heart to have that." - Eddie Izzard

Also that was a great Reliable Source, the cleetus/banjo line cracked me up.

Silly Marion. Your first gun should always be a small handgun, and it should be YOURS ALONE. Communal gun ownership is the first tactic of the NaziStalinistas. I'd say it should go with you wherever you go due to the crazy father situation, but maybe Illinois doesn't allow that.

I'm pretty sure Illinois is a whole lot stricter on gun ownership than just a 24-hour waiting period, though. At least, according to the last guy I read on the subject. [http://www.theothersideofkim.com/index.php/tos/single/9271/] But he lived right in Chicago, So maybe it was all Mayor Daley's local ordinances.

Your articles have gotten so fun to read that it looks like your editors don't even check them for typos anymore:p

I love your humor. It is the thick, delicious pudding-icing on a sliver of the crap that life piles on you. I probably don't want to know how much of your tales are factual, because if it is more than ~5% that's just depressing...

Also, you make me even more grateful that I took a promotion to Marion out of Springfield at my earliest convenience. Amusingly enough, the community college down there offers classes on defensive shooting. I need to take one...

PSA: Guns are only good home defense if you A) are trained in their use and B) are there to use them. They really should be locked in a safe or otherwise secured when no one is home, because they are obviously valuable, and can also be stolen to be used in the commission of crimes. There is a reason why my longarms are both cheap and disassembled. In your case, might I suggest a Tee-Ball bat? ~$10 at Wal-Mart, and much less risk for collateral damage/will hurt you less if it is taken from you :D

I'm gonna quibble on this and say it's actually bullets that kill people, not guns or people with guns.
And I'm gonna quibble on this, unless the bullets hit the head, bullets don't kill people. (it's just an assisted natural death, them bleeding out and such)

You used to write entertaining articles for this website, but lately all you do is air out your dirty laundry with a thinly veiled connection to gaming.

So much ridiculous stuff has been in these articles that I really don't know how much is true and how much is false. The title of the article series would lead me to believe its all bull but I keep thinking it must all be true because you can't lie on the internet, you'll get banned.

Well then I'm going to quibble with this and say it's actually blood loss and trauma that kill people, not guns, people with guns, nor bullets.

Yeah, Guns don't kill people, CRAZY people WITH guns kill people. Seriously, what does this have to do with videogamges? Less about them and more about crazy people with mental instability, in which case I must ask, why would you give said person a firearm? Secondly, again, what does that have to do with videogames exactly?

"Due to the draconic 24 hour waiting period, I couldn't bring it home with me that day."



I am sorry, but I am going to have to call BS on this one. You need a Firearm Owners Identification Document- or FOID for short- to own a gun in Illinois, period, no exceptions. It takes roughly 30 days or more to get one.


http://www.learnaboutguns.com/2008/09/17/illinois-state-police-unlawfully-delaying-firearms-owner-identification-foid-cards/

FYI, learnaboutguns.com is great in general for gun info.

Anyways, assuming you had never owned a gun before, you probably didn't have one, in which case, the wait for a FOID would far outstrip the actual waiting period to buy a gun. And of course, you would need a FOID before you could even *have* a gun at all.

Buying, selling, giving, loaning, or *possessing* a firearm without a FOID is a felony. In other words, it would have been a felony for him to give you a "loaner." Unless you had a FOID, which you probably didn't have if you never owned a gun before.

Yeah it BS. Cops would have been there in minutes.

That's BS to have to wait up to 30 days to buy a gun. Typical northern liberal commie state. Thank God I don't live there.

Hopefully the 2nd amendment gets incorporated so Illinois citizens can sue the hell out of those corrupted liberal politicians and get back their community from criminals.

I also wanted to add that gunshop don't loan firearms outside their property. They do loan firearms but only for use in their shooting range. You have to paid in full before leaving their property with a firearm.

It is true that most gunshop owners/clerks are jerks but they are far from racist. The vast majority of them are ex/current military or police officers and of different races.

There are quit a number of minority gun owners and that segment is growing at a rapid pace. For example: Ichiro Nagata a US Japanese American citizen teaching other Japanese how to shoot in his Texas ranch.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9Zaz28WE9M

Remember cops aren't bodyguards. You can't sue cops for failure to protect. In fact they don't have any obligation to protect you. They are there to maintain the general peace and enforce the law. Your own safety is by SCOTUS ruling in your own hands.

Explain this to me: How does banning guns keep them out of the hands of criminals? Banning alchohol didn't work. Banning drugs hasn't worked. So how does banning guns keep them out of the hands of criminals? Gun control doesn't even increase the time criminals spend in jail, thanks to a practice called concurrent sentences. And if you did want to increase the amount of time criminals spend in jail, you could just increase the sentence for Armed robbery, assault, and murder, and get the same effect. Morever, you could combine that effect with the reduction in crime that comes from letting law abiding, sane adults own and carry guns.

In 2000, Michigan passed laws allowing citizens to carry guns in every city. the crime rate immediately fell, and it continued to get lower.

http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/micrime.htm

The Brady Campaign graded New England on gun control, awarding a high ranking to states that had lots of gun control, and a low ranking to states that had little gun control. But the actual crime rates were almost a total inversion of the rankings the Brady Campaign gave. Essentially, the states with the highest ranking had the worst crime.

http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactSheets/Read.aspx?id=195&issue=011

http://wizbangblog.com/content/2010/02/26/bang-bang-youre-safe.php?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Wizbang+%28Wizbang%29


lastly, the crime rate for the United States actually got lower after 2000- It got lower *despite* the recession- as more states let law abiding, sane adults own and carry guns. In 2008, the crime rate hit the lowest it had been in 28 years.

I agree with Liberals on many, many things. I support gay marriage, clean renewbale energy, throwing corrupt corporate executives in prison, and legalizing marijuana. But I don't support gun bans, as the math simply has not supported it.

Camera's are a good idea, but they don't actively prevent stuff like the couple with all the kids that got killed with tons of video footage.
Sure the camera's helped catch the guys, but they didn't save anyone's life that time.
Mace isn't the answer either, isn't going to help if a crazy attacks, and pepper spray is better than mace anyway
Mace is classified as an irritant and is similar to tear gas.
Pepper spray is classified as an inflammatory agent and will immediately
incapacitate an assailant.
Commonly, Mace has no affect on criminals under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Pepper spray will take down and cause temporary pain to those under the influence.
Unlike pepper spray, Mace will NOT cause inflammation of the capillaries of the eyes and skin causing temporary blindness, nausea, breathing difficulties and an intense burning sensation.

Might want to switch buddy.

http://www.isp.state.il.us/foid/

As someone who DOES live here, it is only ~30 days to get your FOID, which is good for 10 years. Once you have it, the standard waiting period applies, and the system is set up in such a way that the seller calls the number and gets an "approved," normally while I'm finishing up the paperwork. Additionally, south if I-80 IL becomes markedly less liberal, and in general communism is pretty damned rare in the US. Just saying.

Instead of "draconic" did you mean "draconian"? I'm sure dragons wouldn't be too fond of guns either... But I'm pretty sure you meant that the law is harsh, as it was in Greece around the time Draco was writing the laws.

Please read this article. I said it took *roughly* 30 days, and possibly more, because of the above article.

It is hard to make out what may or maynot be true. However my Xbox has been stolen twice this year, my last replacement not a month ago. Unfortunitly after dropping $433 on my new system I couldnt possibly replace it after it got stolen ten days after I got it.(Not all of us have cushy Jobs for a gaming magazine)

I feel your pain, it blows. And theives are too smart to pawn it now so its just sitting somewhere probably not being played(Didnt take any games, dummies my games where in a drawer right below) I payed 433 dollars for my Xbox to sit somewhere.

But guns are not the answer, I carry a Mace gun(when I say gun yes its a gun that shoots mace) but thats just mace. Mace would only be lethal if I sprayed it up someones nose. You wanna protect your home? Cameras. Cameras everywhere, and not just that special alarms that go off if someone tried to take it. Go to your nearest security store, or somewhere that sells survelience.
Camera's are a good idea, but they don't actively prevent stuff like the couple with all the kids that got killed with tons of video footage.
Sure the camera's helped catch the guys, but they didn't save anyone's life that time.
Mace isn't the answer either, isn't going to help if a crazy attacks, and pepper spray is better than mace anyway
Mace is classified as an irritant and is similar to tear gas.
Pepper spray is classified as an inflammatory agent and will immediately
incapacitate an assailant.
Commonly, Mace has no affect on criminals under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Pepper spray will take down and cause temporary pain to those under the influence.
Unlike pepper spray, Mace will NOT cause inflammation of the capillaries of the eyes and skin causing temporary blindness, nausea, breathing difficulties and an intense burning sensation.

Might want to switch buddy.
I also wanted to add that you can immune yourself to an extent from mace and pepper spay by applying small dose at regular interval. Some people are not effect by mace or pepper spay.

Camera doesn't nothing other than to watch you be a crime victim.

Taser can be block by heavy clothing and some people have a good resistance to it.

Here is a video of a 89 elderly woman that refused to be a victim of a crime. The criminal broke into her home and she start shooting. That's how you stop them.

Why don't you google search it first dude?
Pepper spray>Mace, which is like personal use tear gas. Last I checked they don't shoot PEPPER SPRAY grenades into riots.
Due to the current brand-name use of the term "Mace" to refer to pepper sprays and the fact that mace is illegal in most Western countries, it is very difficult to find information on traditional mace. "Mace" and "pepper spray" are frequently used interchangeably, although they are different substances.
Pepper spray's main active ingredient is Oleoresin Capsicum, an ingredient true tear gas/mace doesn't have.

Very nice. I'm using this for a response-to-text assignment in school, if you don't mind :D

EDIT: Is this a true story?

I'm more of a "butcher knife from the kitchen" and "crooked-faced yelling" kind of guy.

May I quote?

"The National Rifle Association says that, "Guns don't kill people, people do," but I think the gun helps, you know? I think it helps. I just think just standing there going, "Bang!" That's not going to kill too many people, is it? You'd have to be really dodgy on the heart to have that." - Eddie Izzard

Also that was a great Reliable Source, the cleetus/banjo line cracked me up.
You can also run away from someone wielding a bat or a chair.
What if they can run faster than you?
Then you should have worked out.
