Video Game Violence Back in the National Debate

The history of violent video games versus the government and public opinion is a long and arduous one. From days as early as Mortal Kombat in the early 1990s, legislators have been attempting to censor the access impressionable young people may have to violent video games.

Yea but the thing is, this discussion doesn't matter. Nothing is going to be done about it. It's a waste of time. The studies have been done, the correlation hasn't been proven.

Tell that to the majority of Americans that believe everything the news tells them without challenging it. The whole assualt weapons ban thing is a political move to gain favor for the Democrats for the 2016 elections, no more no less. More kids are killed by handguns in this country as opposed to rifles. Heck, hammers(yes, hammers) are a more frequently used killing tool than rifles.
