California Senator Calls Out NRA For Response To Newtown Shooting: (No, it’s not hacking related..)

December 24, 2012

So any Battlefield player or COD one is a potential threat hence he/she can buy a rifle and take a life?. I beg to differ on this one hence any FPS lover doesn’t makes you a SOLDIER or a MURDERER.
I agree on some part with *extreme violence* on video games industry today but you can CHOOSE not play them or let your children play them, funny tough there’s more violence on TV than in a videogame. Is too damn easy to point the finger and generalize because some nutcase was under some heavy influence with some severe mental issues.
When *they* gonna learn that *YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU PLAY*?. The only thing you can *blame* game industry of *promoting* some *virtual* war or some kind of *propaganda*.

California Senator Leland Yee response to NRA’S vice president:

In response to the terrible Newtown, CT shooting, the National Rifle Association went after just about every major form of media entertainment, especially video games.

Such a stance has generated a wide variety of responses, and not just within the gaming community. California Senator Leland Yee has commented on the NRA’s response at his website, saying quite clearly that he has little respect for the NRA vice president’s reaction:

“I find it mind-boggling that the NRA suddenly cares about the harmful effects of ultra-violent video games. When our law was before the Supreme Court – while several states, medical organizations, and child advocates submitted briefs in support of California’s efforts – the NRA was completely silent. Now, rather than face reality and be part of the solution to the widespread proliferation of assault weapons in America, they attempt to pass the buck. More guns are not the answer to protecting our children, as evident by the fact that armed guards weren’t enough to stop the tragedy at Columbine High School. The NRA’s response is pathetic and completely unacceptable.”

Obviously, your response will differ depending on your stance on gun control. I respectfully decline to comment on the issue, as I’ve seen enough not-so-friendly debate already. If you must discuss this in all its complex, combustible glory, please do so in a relatively civil fashion.
