So what you're saying is we need a more comprehensive healthcare system that can reach into former blind spots to help people with easily misdiagnosable conditions? That sounds like a great idea!

Well, yes, but it seems like you're being funny and I don't know why.

Trying to turn Gun Control into another prohibition will absolutely not work. Unlike alcohol, it is not consumed. The thousands, millions, hundreds of millions of guns around are not going to go away. Turning the Sandy Hook event into a gun control scapegoat is ridiculous. Does anyone truly believe that he would have not found another way to acquire fire-arms, or kill those children? It is a tragedy, but not a good example of why gun laws need to be stricter. Gun laws were broken in this instance, and changing them would not have kept him from illegally acquring those guns. I know several people capable of hand-manufacturing fire-arms from chunks of metal. Guns will never go away, and neither will mentally ill people. In my opinion this is a perfect thing to look at and say "Shouldn't that man have gotten help?"
Politics / George Zimmerman: Not Guilty
July 14, 2013, 01:33:09 AM
I'm sure some here are familiar with the recently decided 'George Zimmerman vs. State' case. George allegedly followed Trayvon as he was cutting between houses. He called the non-emergency number because there were a large amount of break-ins recently and George didn't recognize Trayvon from that neighborhood. The fact that it was raining and that Trayvon was wearing a big hoodie added to George's suspicion.

The ultimate result was a scuffle between the two of them that ended in George fatally shooting Trayvon in the chest. The defense suggests that Trayvon blind-sided George after George got out of his car to keep track of Trayvon's position in the neighborhood. The prosecution suggests George followed Trayvon all the way to the point of confrontation, and Trayvon was defending himself.

Background Info Over

There were multiple witnesses claiming Trayvon was on top, and multiple claiming he was on bottom. Audio experts disagreed on who's voice shouted for help. Some said Trayvon, some said George. Georges parents said George, Trayvons parents said Trayvon. The only person on earth who knows what truly happened that night is George Zimmerman and he described himself as innocent. From a Judge's point of view, you cannot assume he is lying to save his own skin. So we have a he said she said situation with the only person in any real position of non-ignorance is George and he said he's innocent.

This trial should never have even happened. He got the verdict he deserved. On the 4th of July, 11 murders took place including a man and his infant child. Who the hell is investigating that, making T-shirts about that, starting wikipedia pages about that. No one. It should not have gotten the coverage it did. George Zimmerman's life is ruined as a result. Trayvon's family was unsatisfied in believing it was their own son's fault and went to media all over the place and made this whole thing a big disaster.

The issue cannot logically come down to stricter gun laws, because the man in the Sandy Hook shooting was using guns that were not his, and that he was not legally allowed to own. If the law was followed (it was a damn school shooting of course it wasnt) then this would not have taken place. The law was broken in many ways, no reasonable person can look at this event and decide we need to change laws.

The laws are working. He shouldn't have had those guns legally, but that's his private business and there was no way of knowing he would take them or use them.

Sorry for the necro.

I believe the saying goes "if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have them." There is no more reason now to restrict gun use than their was at any other time in American history. What happened in Sandy Hook was a tragedy, without a doubt, but the kind of people using that to promote gun control already supported gun control.

It's essentially people using 9/11 to promote the idea that we shouldn't have planes or that we should strip search everybody at an airport. It's an invasion of rights, and privacy. There is no plausible way that we can keep guns out of the hands of criminals. I know this sounds like the classic "it'll happen anyway so legalize it" but with guns it goes a bit deeper than that.

Guns already exist. They are already there, the knowledge to make them by hand are readily available. No gun control law will keep deadly weapons out of the hands of criminals. There are hundreds upon hundreds already in circulation and the only people willing to give them up are the people who WON'T be doing reckless and criminal things with them.

All in all, my opinion on the subject is that although what happened in Sandy Hook is awful, it has little to no relevance when discussing the topic of "should guns be legal." Unless you want to look at it as a catalyst of some sort.
I understand your concern, but that's simply not what the game is about.

Bluntly put, you bought a game who's title IS the class.

It's like buying a game called "Mage RPG" and saying you wanna be a ranger. That just won't happen.

You get your wrath, but sadly your genie is none other than Mike Tyson. He interprets what you say as "Rap" and gives you a free Lil Wayne CD.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is really going downhill and falling apart, or if it merely because in the past few years I have reached an age where I now hear about the news. I mean, from the ages 5-10 I wasn't exactly hearing about presidential elections. As a matter of fact it was quite a few years until the gravity of 9/11 dawned upon me.

Iran is also known for their censorship.

Okay, then just Radical Islam.

@Dullahan, the executive producer for KoA is the same one that was the producer for ES III and ES IV.

Also, Arkane studios made Arc Fatalis. A game suspiciously similar to Morrowind.

It's pretty good. The controls take some getting used to, and I much prefer using my xbox connected controller than the standard mouse and keyboard, but it's a fun game overall.
