A new legislation originating in Rhode Island could potentially tax Mature and higher rated video games 10% extra, and use those funding to pay for mental health services as a means of counter aggression.
Sure, video games cause some violent behaviors in a handful of players but is this a solution to the much larger problem that is going on in the country? I'm not sold...
Its Mortal Kombat again. Nintendo is at it again....
If people weren’t shitty parents, they would know not buy 13 year olds Grand Theft auto.
Can we tax gun sales an extra 10%?
Actually, I've been wondering, even if people in the US are somehow deluded into thinking you need guns for self-defense, how is it that minors can buy guns before they're even allowed to drink, and on what planet could an automatic weapon be construed as "defensive"? Ever hear of a handgun? I disagree that people even need that for self-defense, but you would have a much easier time making a case for having that than a SMG.
Yes, video games are the problem. That's why there are shooting in every school across the entire globe. Oh wait, no there aren't. It's only in the great USA. What a coincidence. Way to discreetly try and siphon more money from the public there US govt. So classy.
Sounds like it's time for government officials over a certain age to retire and settle into a care home. Anyone who proves they don't understand how the current decade works shouldn't be proposing legislations or voting on things. That's how we ended up with Net Neutrality ending, and now Rhode Island might have a stupid tax on M rated games if that bill passes. I know that's from two different levels of government, but in both cases it seems unlikely that the individuals involved know it's 2018.
