Help Stop the Assault on Video Games by Lawmakers

Richard Cardenas "As a supporter of the Entertainment Consumers Association (The ECA), I have followed closely just how far some politicians and advocacy groups will go to in order to vilify video game and hold video games and gamers responsible for unspeakable tragedies that have occurred over the years. Ever since the Legislative branch of the government took aim at Mortal Kombat for violence in video games, members of local, state and federal legislative offices have tried in some way to regulate and even sometimes ban the sale of video games." (Culture, Entertainment Consumers Association, ESRB)

Sorry bud. Catchy title but no one is biting.

No kidding. This is a serious issue though. These people in Washington are seriously looking at measures to justify regulating video game sales. I mean, for them to go so far as to question the validity of a Supreme Court ruling and with backers from both major parties, this could potentially affect ever gamer and gaming company for years to come.

Yeah, I hate to use the term "knee jerk reaction" because it's been around a while. But, I think our issues with crime/guns stems deeper than games.

It is deeper than games. Games barely factor into the argument from a realist standpoint. But because they are looking for something to blame right now, games are right in the crosshairs. Unfairly games are seemingly taking the heat for this latest round.

If their are video game laws i have no problem going to uk or canada.

Hopefully it doesn't have to come to that. But if it does, should the worst case scenario become reality, I would do the same as well.
