SF Weekly journalist wants to save us from assault weapons… from Halo, the video game

Written By: Bob - Nov• 30•11

I don’t know SF Weekly writer Joe Eskenazi. What I do know is that he is so ignorant in his pathological hatred of firearms that he’s willing to call on a ban of guns that exist only in pixel form.

No, I’m not kidding… He wants to ban the fictional guns from Halo.

It’s a shame, really. I was really looking forward to picking up that BR55 battle rifle as soon as it comes out in 2525.

    Did you read the article? Or are you making a joke? Because the article never says a word about video games.

    The writer (or someone – who knows how that particular shop publishes – you know that writers generally do not get to write their own headlines, so maybe they do not choose their own graphics) got a pretty funny graphic of course – I LOL’d

    BUT there is nothing in the article about banning anything in video games….

    you could just as accurately say that the guy clearly has a problem with Warren Zevon or Rambo as say that it is about video games.
