OK so my hubby found this article and I would like to call BS on this.
The Congressman is trying to say that playing video games is directly responsible for violent behavior. I think that parents have a roll to play in making sure that their children know the difference in fact and fiction and that oh IDK maybe they should just not let little Jimmy that is 6 play GTA or Metal of Honor. I mean if your kid is already showing signs of aggression WHY would you buy them a game that only made it worse? I think that placing the blame on someone else is becoming a growing trend in our country, and there is just no accountability anymore. Just blame someone or something else.

I agree with the article. Violent video games desensitizes people to violence. Especially younger impressionable kids who play them over and over for hours and hours. Yes, the responsibility should be on the parents to monitor what their children are playing, but the producers and distributors of them need to be held accountable for the content to some extent.
