Venezuelan politicians want to ban violent videogames

0

Because of course, Venezuela has no other more pressing problems to deal with than those evil, evil videogames. The Bill for the Prohibition of Video Games and Toy Weapons seeks to ban the sale of violent videogames in the country, and has already earned swift approval by politicians after the first debate.

The contrived reasoning for this bill is made up of two awful excuses: The first justification is of course the children, whose minds are pure and never entertain thoughts of violence until games pollute their souls. The second, slightly more bizarre reason, is that toy weapons and (somehow) videogames can be used to commit real crimes. 

Yeah. Let's ban thins because of what they might be used for. You know, cars would make excellent getaway vehicles after a bank robbery, let's ban those. Oh, and someone could stick a banana under his coat and pretend it's a gun. Let's ban bananas! Let's ban oxygen, since serial killers use it to breathe!

This is just because Chavez is butthurt over Mercenaries 2, isn't it?
