Loaded or not, that is the users fault. If you don't check your own gun to see if it loaded then you should automatically accept that if you squeeze the trigger and a round goes off. It is your responsibility.

I know were you are coming from, i'm just saying

I just want to make a comment after reading the thread...

Banning guns or tightening restrictions won't do anything...period... Someone brought up the cliche statement earlier: "Guns don't kill people, people kill people"--this is just it...if someone wants to kill another person, lacking a gun won't stop them. A freaking steak knife can be used to take someones life and is just about as freaking effective on an unsuspecting target.

Don't take this post in the wrong way, though...I would rather have every gun on the face of this planet vanish. But try to ban them and people will get their hands on them anyways...or just use another weapon.

I'm on ritalin. And a depression medication. I don't go shooting my "friend"s in the head.


For someone that's usually as logical and reasonable as yourself, that's an incredibly generalized and insensitive statement. As for this post... well... I'm not even sure what to make of it.

Kid: durr..... uh... so slow...

Friend: Hey, look at this game I got!

Kid: Give me the game....

Friend: lol let's go to my house and play it!

Kid: Give me the game... NOW...

Friend: Dude, are you ok?

Kid: *pulls out a gun*
That offends me on so many levels, it's hard to know where to start, whether it's from being an actual sufferer of ADD, or from being a psychology major interested in the field...


As for all the anti-gun law lobbying that's going on, I'll pull out the old saying that still rings true. If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.

I agree banning guns won't help.Someone can kill with a pen if they want to really want to kill someone.Banning usually doesn't work, illegal drugs are banned and yet they're still here.I think teaching people,in this case a child, the value of a human life is what is necessary , and that nothing on this planet , except for self defense, should be a just cause for ending it.

I can see where you were offended by those comments, but you cannot deny that certain drugs don't always react so well with certain people. That doesn't mean that drugs had anything to do with this though.

I'm only 19 but have been playing video games since I got the Atari and Colecovision passed down to me I was never really "Sheltered" from video games... I was just taught the difference between right and wrong.
Likewise, except I'm 16, but still my parents didn't even have to teach me that sort of thing, I never really tried to re-enact something I played in a video game.

Irresponsible mixing of drugs, misdiagnosis (which does happen, too frequently, but of course not in the manner described by hundredgunner) can cause these types of reactions. There is no drug that will cause you to shoot your friend at the very slightest provocation.

Medicinal drugs don't always react well with certain people either, it's silly to expect mental health drugs to always have 100% success rate, especially since these issues are so complex. If this guy was in fact on an ADD/Depression medication, and was having lashes of anger, the psychiatrist would have prescribed a new combo. I myself have been through ~4 ADD meds because they weren't for me or the side effects were unpleasant.

How about:

"Emotionally damaged wack-job linked to fatal shooting"

Yeah, that is more like it.

This is bad to hear for the gaming community. Those non gamers out there will be all over this in the news... (more than they already have ) unfortunately...
