Study find no link between video games and violence

Well, duh. Still, front-running Hillary has always been a major foe of video games.

Clinton said she would soon author a bill to create a federal law that would “put some teeth into video game ratings.” Reminiscent of a California bill introduced by Assemblyman Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) and similar measures in several other states, the legislation will “prohibit the sale of violent and sexually explicit video games to minors” and make such action a federal offense. Clinton said the penalty for violating the law would be a mandatory $5,000 fine.

Jesus, lady. Take it easy. Of course that was in 2005, in response to Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (one of the best games ever, seriously, a work of art). Unsurprisingly I don’t believe anything really came of that bill. She was just caught up in the controversy, playing to peoples’ impulses. But I’m sure she would never, ever do such a thing as president, right?
