50,000 people are killed by auto accidents every year - go after them too

cars that go over say, 75mph should be outlawed..

They’re unsafe and Americans have no need for cars which travel 140mph.

So lets get government to legislate new laws which restrict all new cars made from speeds over 75mph. Why does anyone need a 100 mph car?

Think of all the lives that will be saved. Lets do it for the kids!

if it even saves one child life, it's worth it.

Yet cars were not designed to kill people.

Maybe we could mandate seat belts. Oh, did that. How about speed limits? Done. Airbags? Ok. Crash testing and crumple zones? Got it.

The question is, why didn't you vocally oppose all of those?

schoolbuses have seatbelts?

since when?


retrofit every one with airline passenger seats, shouldn't cost more than a trillion, if you're really interested in safety

Were you talking about school buses when you mentioned cars going 100 mph? Must have missed the weed you found.

In fact, the most dangerous place in America for a child is in its mother's womb.

3000 children die from abortions every day in America

if it will save one child's life...ban abortions

First they came for your guns, then they came for your video games and movies......



White House calls for research on the effect of media and video games in gun violence

NEW YORK — Hollywood and the video game industry received scant attention Wednesday when President Barack Obama unveiled sweeping proposals for curbing gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

The White House pressed most forcefully for a reluctant Congress to pass universal background checks and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

No connection was suggested between bloody entertainment fictions and real-life violence. Instead, the White House is calling on research on the effect of media and video games on gun violence.

The administration is calling on Congress to provide $10 million for the CDC research.

The CDC has been barred by Congress to use funds to “advocate or promote gun control,” but the White House order claims that “research on gun violence is not advocacy” and that providing information to Americans on the issue is “critical public health research.”

Since cracking down on video games is a big NRA and GOP talking point to rebut calls for increased firearms control I suppose Obama would have been slammed by the usual suspects if he had not called for a review of video games

Wayne LaPierre, executive vice-president of the NRA, cited violent video games as a contributing factor in tragedies like these.”Guns don’t kill people.” he said. “Video games, the media and Obama’s budget kill people.” He even called out a few by name:

“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 “Bulletstorm,” “Grand Theft Auto,” “Mortal Kombat,” and “Splatterhouse.”


http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertco...vies-not-guns/

Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kans, said he doesn’t think gun laws could have stopped the Newtown massacre, but maybe better parenting could have.

“What has bothered me the most as a representative is how this has been politicized so quickly that somehow if we had changed one single law—that as I understand it, the state of Connecticut had laws against these things,” he said with a slight chuckle, “What we can all agree on is we’ve got a cultural problem!”

Huelskamp pointed to violent video games and poor parenting as the cause of the mass-shooting that left 20 first-grade schoolchildren dead.

“The kind of video games you just talked about, we don’t let him play that, let’s have them Moms and Dads of Americans stand up and actually take control of our children,” he said of how he monitors his own son’s video game usage. “We’ve got a mental illness issue here. But Washington has to recognize that there’s no simple solutions, this has been going on a long time
.”

Of course the NRA is out with a new shoot 'em up video game so I can see that the anti-Obama position on video games being part of the problem can be confusing to sort out

A month after the deadly school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, the National Rifle Association is taking heat again -- this time for releasing a mobile video game that lets players learn how to shoot at targets.

The game, "NRA: Practice Range," puts the user in a gun range, where they fire a variety of handguns and rifles at stationary targets and earn points for accuracy. Critics are questioning the timing of the game's release Monday -- a month to the day after the December 14 shootings -- and accusing the NRA of hypocrisy because one of its leaders recently blamed video games for stoking gun violence.

"It's outrageous. The NRA never seems to be able to amaze me," said Joel Faxon, a member of Newtown's Police Commission, who described himself as a longtime gun owner
