Piers Morgan Gets Butthurt Over Video Game Controller Rifle

Yea this is a shocker *eye roll*:

Until they incorporate screens in the scopes, actual magazines, realistic recoil, limited ammo etc… it’s never going to be “like the real thing”.  Look how the guy is holding it during the demonstration even… it’s basically just an awkward controller with a trigger.

I think if I was a parent, I’d really hate other parents.  Seeing and hearing first hand how people are screwing up their kids “for their own good” would be really frustrating.

Piers-Morgan-Eyes-Closed-Mouth-Open-Ears-OffI love how they keep saying that these games are turning kids into killers.  Oh really?  Then how come there have only been a handfull of shootings when there are millions of kids that play them.  

The inventor really shit the bed with his answer at the end.  He definitely should have been more prepared.

Thoughts?

“Controls like the real thing”… yea, if aiming in real life involved manipulating bad accelerometers…

I can understand the uproar. My Xbox steering wheel has turned me into an F1 racing driver. Playing Guitar Hero has turned me into a Grammy award winning musician. By that logic, this rifle should turn me into the ultimate killing machine.

Silly bitch sits there and condemns the item that’s paying her bills. I won’t let my kids use it but, its OK for your kids to use it because I’m making money……

…and thats why games are rated MATURE. This lady doesn’t let her 8 year old kid play games rated mature for the same reason I wouldnt let my 8 year old kid watch porn, but you dont see me going on national TV about it.

Duck Hunt for the NES came out in 1985. I think the time to be offended at gun game controllers has long passed.

Heck there was Tin Can Alley in the ’70s. You could shoot across the living room all day. (or down the hall if you were a crack shot)

well morgen said his kids play these games why is it ok for his kids to play these if he believes they are a link to turning kids in to crazy mass murders. this isnt the first gun for a game duck hunt had one and a few arcade games had them i use to play a sniping game at the mall alot that used a control that “looked” like a sniper rifle the only real problem i see in video games is the parents not doing there jobs they buy there kids xbox and these games and use it as a baby sitter i hear 12 and 13 year old kids cursing like sailors which i do not see as ok i have no problem with bad words i use them all the time but if i ever hear one of my kids say one ill bust their ass as long as your doing your job as a mom or dad then you dont have to worry about kids growing up to be bad people or worse more libtards :)

Why is it always “Adam Lanza, James Holmes, etc etc” what about the thousands upon thousands of thugs and gang bangers? Are we only worried about raising .000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% of our children to be mass shooters and not 60% of the inner city youth to be criminals? (I made those stats up cause I can do that too)

“And it looks like an AR-15..” no sir, no it does not. not every gun that is black, has a pistol grip and a magazine is an AR-15. no, putting a red dot sight and a long barrel on an AR-15 toy does not make it a sniper rifle. no, games rated for 17+ are not ment for children. no, as you said yourself, there is no link between videogames and violence. and unlike in other countries, you can’t ban something because “you dont like it”.

EVERY SINGLE STUDY EVER CONDUCTED on the subject of the relationship between video games and actual violence has come back with a null hypothesis (there is no relationship). This includes government funded CDC studies, studies pushed by the US Senate when creating the ESRB. There is no link between Doom and Columbine or Call fo Duty and Sandy Hook. Mass murdering, crazy people play video games, video games do not people in to crazy, mass murderers. Call of Duty: Black Ops has sold more than 13.7 million copies. The HALO series has sold more than 50 million. There have been 62 mass shootings in the US since 1982. If you just count the number of mass shootings carried out by people of the violent video game playing demographic (men under age 35), that number drops to 13. That is less than one shooting for every 1 million copies of Call of Duty sold. All of the “controversy” is just a bunch of ninny hammers worrying over nothing.

What’s next? “Cooking Mama,” promoted the misuse of the pressure cooker to be used as a WMD?

Creator of the controller was apparently motivated by his wife, who insisted on his giving up his real firearms. Man card revoked, buddy…

Is anyone else bothered at all at the very blatant fact that this man DID NOT invent this controller system? There are dozens of youtube videos of people doing this for the past decade on multiple gaming systems. Hell, there is “how to make” on a number of forums. The mod of making airsoft guns for XBox, PS3 and Wii controllers is insanely popular. Most all of them are a lot better designs than what this guy is doing. Its a little frustrating that hes trying to claim he “invented it”. Sounds like he needs a spot on Sons of Guns.
