After the Newtown shootings, NRA (National Rifle Association) President Wayne LaPierre said:

And here’s another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal. There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people. Through vicious, violent video games with names like “Bullet Storm,” “Grand Theft Auto,” “Mortal Combat,” and “Splatterhouse.”

And here’s one, it’s called “Kindergarten Killers.” It’s been online for 10 years. How come my research staff can find it, and all of yours couldn’t? Or didn’t want anyone to know you had found it?

This is wrong in so many ways.  First, there is no connection between video games and real world violence at all.  Second, video games do not come close to simulating actual firearm usage.

The most important reason why LaPierre is wrong is because what he is doing is feminist.  Video games are an activity predominately enjoyed by men.  So are guns.  Both activities are under attack from feminists (just like other predominately male activities like science fiction are) because men are interested in them and women are mostly not interested in them.  LaPierre is shooting himself in the foot (pun intended) by alienating allies among the video game community and helping out feminists in their war on male activities.

What LaPierre should have done is form an alliance with the video game community.  While the Newtown shootings are being used against gun owners right now, the next target will be video games and other mostly male interests and activities.  Both the video game community and the gun community are fighting the same enemy, feminism.  They should be working together to point out facts like how the Newtown shooter was raised by a single mother and how homes where the father is kicked out lead to more violence.

The NRA is in a position of weakness now because they are attacking video games and not the real causes of the Newtown tragedy, single motherhood and feminism.  The NRA is in the same boat as the Republican Party where it needs to become an explicitly anti-feminist and pro-mens rights organization to survive.   (Lots of conservative and right wing organizations are in this situation.)  Guns aren’t the problem here, but neither are video games.  The NRA needs to realize this and realize that its only way forward is by fighting feminism.  Anything else leads the NRA to irrelevance.

  1. “First, there is no connection between video games and real world violence at all. ”

    Read On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society, by Col. Dave Grossman.

    There absolutely IS a HUGE connection between violent video games and movies and a propensity to kill.

    I like your blog, dude, but you seriously need to fact-check.

    • There absolutely IS a HUGE connection between violent video games and movies and a propensity to kill.

      I have a link to a summary of actual research in my post that shows there is no connection whatsoever. There is no link between video game violence and real world violence, period.

  2. One other detail: The REAL and ONLY cause of the Newtown tragedy was a stupid bitch who collected guns and was into survivalism, who also had a screwy kid and didn’t think to lock the guns out of his reach. That cunt escaped the outrage of a nation by getting shot in the head by her fucked up son before he took out her friends at the school, tghen himself. If she was actually thinking of institutionalizing him (which set him off in the first place), why didn’t she think to stow the firearms??!!!

    That evil, stupid bitch is the real culprit, not her fucked up son.

    Finally, there are breaking reports that a Bushmaster was not even involved. This whole story has been fucking massacred by a liberal news media and probably some corrupt officials trying to cover their ass. Sooooooo much that was initially reported is now being corrected. Just how the hell can you claim–for WEEKS–that a specific gun was used and then go “A Bushmaster was not found at the scene”???

  3. i’ve heard that the mother knew her kid was a psycho but tried to keep it a secret in order to continue getting child support

    anyone else know more about this?

    if it’s true then it should be shouted from the rooftops

  4. LaPierre is just redirecting criticism of his hobby to someone else’s hobby. I would never want to be seen publicly calling something a “shadow industry” that is actually a major multi-billion dollar industry with tens of millions of non-violent customers.

    It’s a shameful attempt to redirect blame to something he knows little about, but he knows enough to be aware of the fact that video games companies and enthusiasts have no organized National Video Games Association that will fight back.

  5. I think one of the main reasons that conservatives are scared shitless of average video gaming males is, like most young men today, we refuse to participate in the rote conservative life script of getting married and supporting a family of church going cattle. their only remaining support comes from post-feminist “born again virgins” and spineless manginas who have been completely beaten into submission.

    there is no going back.

  6. You are the biggest, dumbest, ugliest cunt in the entire universe. Dopey.

  7. as mgtowing both shrinks the tax base AND the number of available pack mules it’s very likely that we will see feminists joining up with conservatives in the future

  8. I read an excellent comment on the Spearhead that a trad/con woman and a Feminist woman were just two slae holders arguing how to effectivly whip their slaves.

  9. Effective organizations don’t work that way irl.
    NRA, support MRA?
    There’s no valid reason an organization of 4.5 Million seeks out the support of a disorganization unable to even number its membership.

    The NRA takes action and has many victories.
    It is MRA
    THAT should join NRA.

    If you want allies, go seek them.
