Senator Yee: NRA’s Gun Response to violent games is Pathetic and Unacceptable

Senator YeeCalifornia Senator Leland Yee responded on NRA reaction against violent game is  ”pathetic and completely unacceptable,” via a statement issued on his website.

Yee said when a law against the sale of violent games to children went before the Supreme Court in 2011, the NRA did nothing to help.

“I find it mind-boggling that the NRA suddenly cares about the harmful effects of ultra-violent video games,” Yee said. “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.”

Yee also claimed that the NRA is attempting to “pass the buck” , rather than be part of the solution.

“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,” Yee said. “The NRA’s response is pathetic and completely unacceptable.”

Earlier this week NRA head Wayne LaPierre blamed video games “like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse”.
