California Lawmaker Wants Gaming Ban For Kids
from the evidence?-what-evidence? dept
A California lawmaker has decided that because there's violence in some video games kids should be banned from buying them. The article at Broadband Reports does a good job explaining why this is overreacting as usual. When there's violence among kids, people are always looking for someone to blame, but the blame never seems to fall on the kids themselves who almost definitely know the difference between virtual and real - and between right and wrong. Instead, people blame the video game and assume that somehow kids will suddenly stop being violent.
