They’ll pry my avatar’s gun from my avatar’s cold dead hands

Time to start stockpiling – Microsoft is removing all ‘gun-like’ items from the Xbox Live marketplace. Microsoft is allowing users to keep any weaponry acquired before the ban.  For now, anyway.

    They write:
    raising the possibility that a younger or more family-oriented user of the console might encounter an avatar holding a weapon from an M-rated (for mature audiences) game.

    Guns are not “M-rated”, they’re “TV-G”, suitable for all audiences.

    The pussification of America continues apace.

  2. Not just pussification, but pushing the anti-gun agenda.

    I rather suspect this is just another example of a closed-minded, liberal-leaning, self-congratulatory, culturally-elitest cloistered clique that hasn’t been paying attention for the past decade …unaware that the rest of us are currently arming ourselves to the teeth.

    …they’re obviously monastic minded gun-Luddites who read Michael A. Bellesiles Arming America years back, never stayed current on the subject, and so never got the disclosure that it had been thoroughly debunked, and was totally fabricated.

    …and clueless that the 2nd has finally been recognized as applying to personal rights, instead of states rights.

    They think they’re cutting edge you know. How …quaint.

    They’re Microsoft-ians. They’re dinosaurs.

    Pity them.

    …mind-numbed robots, indeed.

    As one commenter put it, it’s hilarious that you can’t have a gun on your avatar as you run around shooting RPG-7s at everything that moves.

    This is a perfect example of irony. If you ever visit the Microsoft campus between 1/3 to 1/2 of the work spaces have silhouette targets hanging on the walls. Shooting is popular there.
