As for your previous post, we don't have a problem with people having a different opinion. They're free to be offended by the game. They are trying to force their opinion on us not the other way around. Just because they feel offended they don't want anyone else playing the game.
You might want to recheck who is stepping on who's rights.
I agree that if these people were to successfully get THE GOVERNMENT to ban games, they would be stepping on other's rights. However, that is not the case. It is a group of people attempting to appeal to a private business. Even if they DID succeed in this (and I doubt they will), they have not violated your rights in any way. Walmart is a business, and if they feel that it would be beneficial to their sales to ban this game, then they have the right to do so. Go start your own store if you don't like it and sell whatever games you want.
We have people in this thread talking about how 'fascist' America is because some people are petitioning freaking Walmart. If we were to silence these people that feel they have a valid complaint because YOU don't like their agenda, THAT would be fascism. As it is now it is just people expressing their opinions and appealing to a store.
My whole point of my post was to agree with ItsEggrollTime's comment. And I think he does need to get his grandfather over here to smack some people. Is that what kids worry about these days, other people expressing views that they don't agree with?? You can tell we have come a long way if this is the worst thing people can come up with to ***** about. Go live in an actual fascist country for a while then try complaining. As I see it it wouldn't be Duke Nukem if it didn't upset some people!!
On topic: I doubt Walmart is going to ban Duke anyway, but you do have to like the free publicity for the game!!
