She's a freakin` idiot

I`m GLAD you`ve come to your senses @SmagBoy!
At least temporarily!

Canadians do. Japanese play MUCH MORE SICK AND TWISTED GAMES ZOMG!!! Oh believe me! They do!

German games are "controlled" by their government... so no. They get the "censored" version of many games...

Just another thing to place blame on because she can't understand personal responsability. These are not the people you want making laws.

Your comment got me thinking that video games were probably protected under the First Amendment:

Military and police training and service is a much more potent training ground for violence in civilian life.

Okay, so, as a liberal, one might think I'd jump to her side here and support her in this quackery. Nope. She`s a freakin` idiot and I wish people would just stick with facts in the discussion (there are plenty of them). She does the conversation a great disservice by spouting pseudo-science BS when there`s plenty of actual statistical data out there to discuss regarding gun violence. And none of it shows any causal link between violent video games and gun violence--which, if the good Senator would think about it, would be inherently obvious. I mean, don`t Canadians play the same video games we do? Don`t the Japanese? The Germans? Etc.? What a shame she undermining any legitimacy that could be brought to the conversation.
