Republican Senator Alexander claims video games “a bigger problem than guns”
If I was the type that takes conspiracy theories seriously, I’d be inclined to start believing that somebody has been tampering with the water supply of some of the US Senators.
Yesterday, news hit the headlines when California Senator Leland Yee felt the need to tell gamers to “Quiet down” after weeks of protest from gamers over the topic of violent video games that has been a constant talking point since the tragic Connecticut school massacre, just over a month ago.
Although he has since apologized for his comment, it hasn’t dettered another challenger from entering the fray. Que; Republican Senator Lamar Alexander.
Speaking earlier today on MSNBC’s, The Daily Rundown, Senator Alexander told host Chuck Todd that he felt video games are a much bigger problem than guns.
“I think video games is a bigger problem than guns” he continued on to say “Because video games affect people. But the First Amendment limits what we can do about video games and the Second Amendment to the constitution limits what we can do about guns.”
It seems like this is a topic that government officials truly are not going to let go of, with the blame being forced more and more on to the industry that we all know and love.
