As a constituent and active video game player, I’m asking you to support my right to access and buy the games I want and not to blame media, including video games, for the recent tragedies that have befallen our nation. In a script we’ve seen played out before, video games are being blamed for the violence, but we know that that’s not the case.
There is no proven causative link between video games and violent behavior, and numerous scientific studies have shown this to be the case, the Supreme Court has already viewed this evidence and determined it to be unpersuasive in Brown v. EMA.
Content regulation of creative media (including video games) is not an answer to gun violence. The majority of gun violence is perpetrated by poor minorities in inner cities -- I'm at a loss as to how regulation of violent video games could possibly serve as a rational basis to decrease gun violence. If you feel like you need to pass some law, any law, to make it look like you're "solving a problem" then perhaps you should to look to actually solving the problem, instead of picking a scapegoat you expect to just roll over and take it.
I will be keeping track of this issue. You represent a constituency in a key battleground state in this country. Know that when I voted for you this past November, there were certain expectations I had--and singling out video game developers and violating their First Amendment rights over some misguided and poorly thought out plan is not something I will tolerate from my elected representatives come the next election cycle. The majority of people who play video games are not 15 year old kids with no voting power--we are adults, we have a political voice, and we will respond to terrible laws that are facially unconstitutional, which are being passed by our elected representatives in Congress.
PS: Don't you have more important things to do, like fixing the budget? Creating a federal censorship board isn't going to fix the budget.
