New Video Game Allows Players to Murder NRA President

NSFW - Language and graphics

Spoiler


Quote:
A new online video game is taking political discourse to a whole new level. We already reported the death threats being received by NRA executives and now, a video game which allows users to shoot NRA President David Keene in the head, has been released. The creator of the game identified as gizmo01942 Ediot says, "Share this everywhere, especially gun-nut and anti-game websites. Also see if you can't send it in to the NRA somehow, like through the feedback on their website or something." Gizmo also provides screen shots to viewers.

The game is available for download and comes in the form of a zip file. During a press conference in December, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre berated the video game industry for their use of violence saying, "Isnít fantasizing about killing people all day really the filthiest form of pornography?Ē

This doesn't really excuse this garbage much, and it is garbage, but:

1. It's a video game, probably a sh-tty flash game or something along those lines too. But it is just a video game, they aren't the cause of shootings.

2. I remember a long time ago, there was this site called Newgrounds, and it had a series of games under the category of Assassin. Basically it was a bunch of crappy flash games where the goal was to kill various celebrites and movie and cartoon characters. There was a PC game called JFK Reloaded. You played as Lee Harvey Oswald and the goal was to re-enact the John F. Kennedy assassination as accurately as possible.

This really isn't a new thing. And like the NRA game, it's nothing worth rustling the jimmies.

My father is still a member of the NRA.








Trouble is, he's been dead for the past few years.

So what? I still have "Super Columbine Massacre RPG" downloaded on my computer. As wally said, it is probably some game made on Newgrounds or posted by a troll on his website.

Hell even clicking on the link and looking at the game, it feels similar to that JFK game that came out a few years back. Its not that big a deal.

I can't imagine that it is legal to have a game that re-enacts killing a living human being, public figure or not.

It has to violate some kind of threatening utterances or harassment law.

Why? We have movies that do constantly. Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers re-enacted the deaths of hundreds of American, Canadian, and British soldiers throughout World War 2 (often times by name, or re-enacted a specific soldier's death).

The game is not harassing or directly threatening.

Wasn't it the left screaming bloody murder about people in cross hairs?

Of course I'm sure they see this differently.

The game came from a forum in Encyclopedia Dramatica. ED is Wikipedia if Wikipedia were made by 4chan.

https://forum.encyclopediadramatica....s.11767/page-4

My favorite part though is the amount of outrage and stupidity stemming from the media and bloggers over this, some are already calling this game "leftist".



I think this game was made partly to get a reaction, and boy did it ever lololol. For more fun, read the first post on the thread, or even just read the name of the thread, and then imagine if any of the blowhards screaming about this tried to do any additional research. Like the first three pages before the sensationalism sniffers found the game.
