#1 He's presuming these morons get their ideas from video games. As if they can't think for themselves. What a meanie.

#4 typical government response. Create a problem (banning guns) and then address the problem you just created by pushing for more banning.

#5 What is their fascination with blaming and banning video games?

And here they are again, trying to swipe an entire culture as criminals because of a legal product purchase.

You gamers understand? They've been trying to ban and tax video games since at least the 90s.

You may not have a dog in the firearms topic, you may even be against them, but if they smudge the pen-on-paper legal guarantee to have the choice to purchase firearms by The 2nd Amendment, these petty tyrants are going to ban your game, make you a criminal for playing or failing to provide payment for a sin tax.

You want to play GTA? $10 each month, for each 'dangerous' game, to the Greater Chicago District to supplement the costs of whatever passes through the focus group.

In your lifetime, they convinced you taxing sugar is within their rights. How much of that tax actually goes towards diabetes and how much goes to some politician's relative's clinic front?
