    That is retarded. The NRA didn't have a rally at Columbine. The NRA was going to have a convention in Denver, that had been scheduled years in advance, and, after Columbine, they canceled it. You need to get your information straight before you make an idiotic claim. They had a rally 8 months later, a political rally during campaign season, that was completely unrelated.

    I am guessing that your sole source of information is that idiotic film, "Bowling for Columbine." I myself was at the convention in Charlotte, NC, where he spliced some of the speech and mixed it with an earlier one, to make them seem they came from the same speech. Anyone that believes anything from that movie has a few screws loose.


    And about the game, there is nothing wrong with a non-violent shooting game that deals with a shooting range. Indeed, it can be a good diversion for those that want to play with firearms without the violence. I came back from shooting skeet this morning, and can attest the the innocent fun involved in such games(though this was in real life).

    hmmm well i will look that up......im still not a fan of the NRA, who needs a machine gun? having crap like that just makes people feel like they are the shit and past that, owning heavy weapons is not neccesary in America and i still think that any game where you fire a gun should be teen its a personal thing i dont think kids can handle this stuff

    in most of the shootings that ive heard of the young shooters got the guns from their homes......thats the problem not really the games

    EDIT: I looked it up and the shooting was tuesday April 20 and the meeting started saturday May 1....common sense should have told them that it was a bad idea to have the meeting that year but whatever its their right

    Once again, you need to look up the facts before you spout off things. The NRA is the "National Rifle Association," not the "National Machinegun Association." The NRA does not try to get people the right to own "machine guns," that is a Class 3 weapon, as in "highly illegal and hard to get without a butt-load of red tape and licensing." The NRA does not support people getting extremely dangerous/illegal firearms, rather, tries to foster the safe and responsible use of conventional firearms(handguns, rifles, and shotguns), and tries to protect the rights of gun owners from people(like yourself it seems) who have a hate for guns and all things related to them, without any real understanding or knowledge about them.

    And face it, if someone needs it bad enough, they can get a gun illegally, the problem is not the guns in the homes, it is the wacked out kids growing up these days, a society problem, not a gun problem, in my opinion(after all, can you think of any school shootings that happened 100 years ago? 50? 30? Why are they just now occuring, when firearms have been around for centuries? The only logical answer is that it is the people, not the guns, that are the problem.).

    Edit: Hmmmm, I might be getting a bit too worked up over this, because I am an NRA member. Oh welz, don't take it personally. =p

    Edit2: The "meeting," which was a national convention, was cancelled, the only thing there on May 1st, as far as I remember, was a press conference saying that the meeting was cancelled, and a announcement that they would refund all NRA members that flew out there, at least, if memory serves from the article I read in the NRA magazine. Afterall, you can't completely cut off something that has been planned for years on short notice without at least some followups.

    http://www.hardylaw.net/Truth_About_Bowling.html


    A. Columbine Shooting/Denver NRA Meeting. Bowling portrays this with the following sequence:
    Weeping children outside Columbine;
    Cut to Charlton Heston holding a musket and proclaiming "I have only five words for you: 'from my cold, dead, hands'";
    Cut to billboard advertising the meeting, while Moore intones "Just ten days after the Columbine killings, despite the pleas of a community in mourning, Charlton Heston came to Denver and held a large pro-gun rally for the National Rifle Association;"
    Cut to Heston (supposedly) continuing speech... "I have a message from the Mayor, Mr. Wellington Webb, the Mayor of Denver. He sent me this; it says 'don't come here. We don't want you here.' I say to the Mayor this is our country, as Americans we're free to travel wherever we want in our broad land. Don't come here? We're already here!"
    The portrayal is one of an arrogant protest in response to the deaths -- or, as one reviewer put it, "it seemed that Charlton Heston and others rushed to Littleton to hold rallies and demonstrations directly after the tragedy." The portrayal is in fact false.

    Fact: The Denver event was not a demonstration relating to Columbine, but an annual meeting (see links below), whose place and date had been fixed years in advance.


    Fact: At Denver, the NRA cancelled all events (normally several days of committee meetings, sporting events, dinners, and rallies) save the annual members' voting meeting -- that could not be cancelled because the state law governing nonprofits required that it be held. [No way to change location, since under NY law you have to give 10 days' advance notice of that to the members, there were upwards of 4,000,000 members -- and Columbine happened 11 days before the scheduled meeting.] As a newspaper reported:
    In a letter to NRA members Wednesday, President Charlton Heston and the group's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, said all seminars, workshops, luncheons, exhibits by gun makers and other vendors, and festivities are canceled.
    All that's left is a members' reception with Rep. J.C. Watts, R-Okla., and the annual meeting, set for 10 a.m. May 1 in the Colorado Convention Center.
    Under its bylaws and New York state law, the NRA must hold an annual meeting.
    The NRA convention April 30-May 2 was expected to draw 22,000 members and give the city a $17.9 million economic boost.
    "But the tragedy in Littleton last Tuesday calls upon us to take steps, along with dozens of other planned public events, to modify our schedule to show our profound sympathy and respect for the families and communities in the Denver area in their time of great loss," Heston and LaPierre wrote.
    So, as I said, get the facts straight first. =p

    First of all, Bully is a violent game, although perhaps not in the blood and gore type of violence, per se. It depicts pretty intense schoolyard violence. (think all the cruel, twisted things your childhood BULLIES did, hence, the name)

    And I agree with Jakko, you really need to get your facts straight. The NRA doesn't push for machine-guns or assault weapons to be made available to the public. It advocates the right to have rifles and handguns. Though I'm a strong supporter of gun control, I believe that people should have guns if they wanted them. After all, I hear hunting is an exhilarating sport.

    i know they as in the leaders dont push it, some of the member do though and i think its not our right sorry i didnt make that clearer i got my info from CNN which is supposed to be impartial but hey everyone has their own opinion on stuff

    i dont hate guns i think having the power to end the life of something is awesome (im kidding but i love hunting people with paintball guns) but too many people are getting hurt even when parents lock them up......i think if parents do have guns their fucked up kids shouldn't know about it

    the dad of the family that my family used to live next to hunted with a bow and growing up i thought it was pretty cool, so i asked his son what it was like to go hunting and he told me his dad didnt let him go....he was a year older than me and im pretty sure he was around 15-16 or something.

    but i grew up in a northern suburb so i guess i wouldn't really get why someone would want a gun but i actually wrote a paper on it, and my teacher who was from Georgia, and "loved her guns," gave me a 107% on it and said it made her think(that last part was just thrown in to toot my own horn but whatever)

    but back to what this is really about i think any shooting game should be teen a 10yr old doesnt need to play stuff like that imo

    P.S.
    Sorry for offending you Jakko.....I don't want your pistol(s) i just think that kids shouldn't be around guns but thats me

    Really, this video game is on par with Duck Hunt for NES. Except you're not shooting defenseless birds, you're shooting targets.

    Just wondering, this might be unrelated but

    Then what do u have to say about all these tv shows aimed to kids like
    the power rangers and what not. Its for kids, it has guns in em..swords too...

    Just an idea that popped up.
