A TENNESSEE STATE SENATOR wants to ban violent videogames.

Doesn't he realize that would endanger national security?

The violent video game rap is the same as the violent TV rap. Don't like it? Don't let your kids watch, play it, whatever. OR the more sensible thing would be to educate your kids as to whats reality and whats fantasy. That way instead of trying to insulate your kids from anything scary, they would have a firm grasp on how to operate as an adult in the real world.

More examples of people trying to tell other people what to do. Who says communism doesnt exist in America?
