And Senator Dianne Feinstein is a Democrat who should know better

US Senator: Government May Have to MAKE Video Games Makers Comply on Gun Censorship
Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein represents some of San Francisco. She dislikes gun violence. She even dislikes the over-availability of guns, yet even she has fallen into the trap of connecting video games to actual murder.

Speaking in her home city this week she asked for game makers to make voluntary actions to avoid glorifying guns and violence following the Newtown elementary school massacre in December. She said:

"Video games play a very negative role for young people, and the industry ought to take note of that. If Sandy Hook doesn't do it, if the knowledge of these video games this young man played doesn't, then maybe we have to proceed, but that is in the future."

And she did not stop there, “If Sandy Hook doesn’t [make game publishers change] … then maybe we have to proceed, but that is in the future,” was her doom-laden call.

Pray tell WHY should she know better?? Democrats are the ones that have spear-headed the vast, vast, vast majority of such legislation in the past. Why the left *insists* it's the right that engages in this when it's the LEFT that has been flogging this horse for a decade (look at the major legislation proposed by Democrats in this area from the past decade, then go back to Tipper Gore and music lyrics instead of being blinded by an ideology that doesn't even support what you think it does) is beyond those of us with functioning frontal lobes.

NEWFLASH: Democrats *hate* videogames. Hillary Clinton, Joe Lieberman, Diane Feinstein, these are all *very* hardcore, *very* left Democrats. The state senator in CT that proposed banning gun games in arcades? A Democrat. The California pol that wanted to impose draconian sales laws on videogames? A Democrat.

At some point the overwhelmingly leftwing gaming media will admit this is an issue and start calling for some heads instead of providing cover for their ideological stablemates and boring us to death--as Spong does regularly--about the Daily Mirror's latest 'outrage', when it's people with *actual* power that are your worst enemy.

(But probably not.)
