    Real gun used at CS tournament

    Yeah, it gets better and better folks, now you aren't even safe at a gaming tournament. It's pretty sad, here's the press release:

    Cyber X Games Inc. December 7, 2003

    Community Release: CXG Los Angeles Qualifying Event/Response as written by Joseph F. Hill, President, Cyber X Gaming Inc.

    At 4:30am (CST) I was informed by CXG staff and representatives of Gamers X of a disturbance that took place outside of the Gamers X facility. In response to this event I have prepared the following statement, which is based upon police reports, research, and information gathered to date from those involved, I prepared this type of response because I believe it important to the community that these actions be revealed and discussed:

    Late last evening following the completion of a match involving two Los Angeles based teams a fight was initiated outside of the Gamers X LAN Center, host of the CXG Los Angeles Qualifier; upon learning of the disturbance Chris Hill of CXG, and my son, was asked to try and resolve the matter and stop the fighting; as he broke up the fight he and others were jumped by people associated with Team BZ. As Chris, and others attempted to calm the situation a member/associate of Team BZ ran to his car opened the trunk of the car grabbed a gun and placed it to the head of Chris Hill while other Team Members and associates encouraged the person with the gun to fire!

    This news item is continued here.

    Oh man what a sad story, I'm amazed how some ppl can behave when things doesn't go their way, wtf it's a bloody computer game!?
    I've only just once had a person threatening me with a real weapon and that idiot went home with a broken wrist.. :thumbs do

    Sweden is a very peaceful country though, not like US with all their guns and s**t.

    Eh, America and guns isnt the problem, its psycho Americans and guns that are the problem. In my town theres probably an average of 3 guns per household, and I say we have about 1/2 a shooting a year. That story is digusting however. Obviously the guy who grabbed the gun has some serious issues he needs to see a psych about.

    Heard about this on CS Nation a few days ago, so it's somewhat old to me.

    Frankly, anyone who gets so obsessed over a game needs to stop playing and become a mennonite or something. I don't think that gun control laws have anything to do with it. We have far fewer guns in Canada, so I can't speak for the USA, but I will say that if a gun is so readily available to a person, then something needs to be done about it.

    Then again, there can only be so much done to stop this kind of stuff...

    EDIT: Oh, and Fatguy3, I've updated that post with the benchmarks. ;)

    That's the disturbing part in bold. OK, there are always going to be people with guns in society, whether you outlaw them or not. However I firmly believe that despite what many gamers say (and is fashionable to say), that violent games and movies do have an impact on kids, and make them both desensitized to the idea of killing, and glorify weapons and combat.

    I personally can defend myself in most any situation, but I would never consider it even remotely cool to encourage others to kill or beat each other up.

    I've noticed while playing America's Army that there are a lot of deeply disturbed kids who are both trigger-happy and who have not the least bit of discipline. Imagine if they got their hands on a real gun after some emotional problems.

And he said he never fired a gun before that, he also said the resone why hes so good at shooting is becuz he spent months playing FPS games. Kind of scary

    utter bs. anyone that has ever fired a real weapon knows FPS are nothing like the real thing.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
