Jack Thompson targets Utah as his next victim

Good villains never really die, and Jack Thompson is showing respect for that tradition in his latest attempts to bring gaming down to its figurative knees. GamePolitics was lucky enough to get a press release from Thompson recently, which states:

"Thompson will be in Utah this coming week to work with Utah state officials to pass a new state law that will stop, dead in its tracks, the continuing marketing and sale of “Mature” video games to kids. Utah’s new approach to this problem will be constitutional and it will become a model for other states to follow."

Further digging resulted in proof that Thompson is in fact a keynote speaker at the yearly convention held by Utah Eagle Forum, some people that I would be happy never to have to hold a conversation with in person. The schedule for the convention mentions Thompson will speak on the research proving violent games lead to violence in children and this year's legislation to prevent it.

Maybe those Freedom Awards got him feeling confident, or maybe crazy people just have endless confidence, but either way it looks like Jack is far from throwing in the towel just because of a silly little disbarring. What a great guy. Well, if all else fails, target the religious -- just say God hates it and they'll be in the palm of your hand in no time.
