Even One of The Biggest Critics of Violent Video Games Bashed The NRA Today

Kotaku - California State Senator Leland Yee, who took his fight against violent video games all the way to the Supreme Court a couple of years ago and lost, slammed the NRA's odd, new attack on video games.

It's not that the former child psychologist suddenly loves violent video games. It's that Yee, who wrote the failed California law that would criminalize the sale of them to minors, believes that the NRA should be focusing on something else in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting. (Culture)

@Kotaku quality over quantity guys, there's a novel idea.

While I hated to do it, I did go to the article, because I remembered this guy. His quote wasn't defending games, quite the opposite. He says that basically "I told you so, but you didn't say anything back then" He then basically implies that both guns and violent games are part of the problem. About the only thing he got right about the NRA statement on this problem was "The NRA's response is pathetic and completely unacceptable."

Kudos to you for taking the sacrifice for the rest of us.
