Wow that Facebook headline is such enormous bullshit that I wish I could burn down CNBC right about now for wasting my time with that clickbait crap.

I am starting to get really angry at news sites that pull complete inverse news like this, because that is literally the exact opposite of what facebook asked and with the spin they added it's even complete fake news. Read the actual poll from Facebook and realize what utter BS this news is. And they wonder why everyone sees fake news nowadays.

Fuck CNBC, they are a disgrace to journalism

All media has an Agenda that's easy to see when you pay attention - people just don't notice because aaaw puppies

Or, people can't read and/or are conspiracy theorists.

As others pointed out, the CNBC headline isn't incorrect. Especially the headline currently up, "Facebook survey asked if 'adult man' should be allowed to request 'sexual pictures' from 14-year-old," which is wholly accurate. But the one Blue quoted is still accurate - Facebook did release a survey that asked people if child-predator content is ok. It wasn't intentional, but it's what they did.

When I rant on a news piece and it says "updated" in the header after my comment then you can be sure I was referencing something they changed. I mean, seriously. I am not going on random rants for giggles. That original headline (when you clicked the link) was complete and utter fake news. Alas, no screenshot <-> no cake, so whatever.

What the butts are you talking about? Where does it say "updated" in the header(?) after your comment?
Beamer quoted the original headline (assuming Blue used and is still using that) and the new one from the article.

It's like when they blamed games for training kids how to shoot real guns. There are a ton of videos on You Tube that disprove this theory. Shooting in games is very, very different from shooting in real life. Most of the people tested could not even get the firearm loaded correctly without help, let alone get it to a state where it could be fired by pulling the trigger.

There was an interview with a gun shop owner describing how CoD players would come in and check out the guns. They'd look down the scope and ask, "How do I make it zoom in?"



Yeah, game guns != real guns.

No doubt.
But I've never played a game that required me to load and ready the gun like this:

Again, just watching that video makes me laugh. You'd have a better time watching you tube to learn how they work in real life. THis is like learning vascular surgery from that horrible surgery simulator.

Just letting you know that they exist since you said you had never seen them before. There they are.

Yeah, it's pretty much a myth that anyone and everyone can get one at anytime they want.

No it's definitely not a myth. You can walk into a gun show in many states, like Ohio for example, and buy a gun with zero paperwork exchanged and that's legal.

Only if you are buying from a private citizen. Any registered FFL dealer must fill out a form 4473 and do a NICS check on any firearms transaction regardless of where it takes place or they are breaking federal law and will wind up in federal pound me in the ass prison.

Private citizen are not allowed to use the NICS system, even though we have been asking for decades. However, you are not supposed to sell to any person you know to be a prohibited buyer. How can I tell if you won't let me use NICS? I play the safe road. I only sell to people that have their concealed handgun permit in NC so that I can be sure they have passed a background check.

This is the so called "gunshow loophole" myth. It works the same at a gunshow or over the internet or in person. Gunshows are not immune to Federal Firearms Laws.

You can keep saying it's a "myth" but it doesn't change that I can walk into an Ohio gunshow and buy a gun without even showing so much as an ID.

You have of course tested this yourself and are speaking from first hand knowledge?

Yes I went to an Ohio gun show and saw sales take place on the floor (not in the parking lot) where no information was exchanged. If you just do a search for "ohio gun show laws" you'll see that it's common and advertised knowledge. Background checks are not required, licenses are not required, you can sell with no paperwork at an Ohio gun show.

This meeting is POTUS way to tell the game industries start spending $/bribing on their politicians like NRA/gun makers did for the last HUNDRED years... otherwise US gov will going to take away your "virtual guns"....

I actually saw an opinion piece from CNN yesterday about how the super realistic virtual reality shooters were training kids to be better killers and they should be dumbed down so that kids won't learn how to fire real guns from these games.

What I want to know is: Where can I get a hold of these awesome games? Because I have yet to see any VR games as realistic as he was claiming.

It's like when they blamed games for training kids how to shoot real guns. There are a ton of videos on You Tube that disprove this theory. Shooting in games is very, very different from shooting in real life. Most of the people tested could not even get the firearm loaded correctly without help, let alone get it to a state where it could be fired by pulling the trigger.

Some of the very first big VR games were simply ultra-realistic gun ranges. They're really barely a game, it's just a VR gun range where you need to have actual knowledge of how to load and fire the various guns. I've seen a few that took that same concept and built a Counter-Strike like MP game around them but they're pretty glitchy and the entertainment probably comes more from the wacky bugs then actual solid gameplay.

Also, I have no problem with those games, and I saw that ridiculous CNN article too. Dude suggested making virtual guns fire on a horizontal curve so the muscle memory couldn't be used for real life... it was full of dumb ideas.

His last incarnation got banned several months ago and I haven't seen him back. It's a shame, because he's obviously a very intelligent person and I enjoyed reading his takes.

Oh I know, was just trying to dredge up alias 11 or something.

Right, why have laws at all if criminals are just going to break them anyway.

Yep. I'm sure you'll be on the front lines for "US Civil War Pt2" if they try to take guns from states like Texas, Arkansas, Alabama etc.

More likely you'll be hiding in your basement along with Redbrowneye9 (see I can lower myself to that standard too.)

I'm glad that here in Australia we have less guns but, Australia is NOT the USA.
Apples and oranges.

Laws based on emotional reactions are bad laws.

Wow what a devastating reply.
I've seen the "why have laws" question posited many times but I've never seen such a masterclass as that in handling it.

Now those same people have been throwing a continuing 1.5 year long tantrum.
I love seeing smug, self-entitled assholes getting reality shoved right up their back passages.

p.s
The connection between video games and shootings is bogus.
I think Trump is trolling you.
6 Months from now the heat will have gone out of this and it will be business as it was with possibly minimal, meaningless changes.

I just ignore anything that jackoff has to say, in fact hes on my ignore list. so I have no idea what he even responded and I really dont care what he has to say.

In a roundabout way he (correctly) pointed out how you lack critical thought.

No, I dont lack critical thought. I just know shit when i see it.

Okay, show off those critical thinking skills:
This new mode being added to the first retail battle royale game... what makes it "another bullshit wannabe copy cat" ?
