Do it for all mediums that have violence then you retard! Oh no that’s right because you enjoy movies, books, and music... but video games, psssshhhhh only losers like that crap let’s slap a tax on that because apparently that’s the only form of entertainment these sociopaths consume, amirite?

I'm glad I don't live on Rhode Island, lol. Children should not be playing M rated games anyways. Parents who let their kids play such games should be taxed for being stupid. I'm not actually serious about that last part as there's no way to prove a parent is being a dunce, but come on! I like to think 17 year olds and older are capable of consuming said games without thinking they can just go out and do what they do in GTA on the streets of their real life suburb or city. Anyone younger than 17 shouldn't be playing those games anyways so complaints about them being bad for kids should fall on deaf ears. Actually, parents who go to the courts over a game clearly labeled as 17+ being a bad influence on their kid who's under that age should be fined for wasting the court's time and resources.
