4. Doesn't it follow

that the people blaming violent video games are looking for stricter control of such? I don't feel like it would be such a strong talking point if they weren't trying to lead it somewhere.

That's NBC reporting on a California law that was struck down as unconstitutional about banning sale of violent video games to children, though it's an old story.

There's no way this Senator:

just wants more warning labels on violent video games.

I don't think young children should be playing hack and slash violent video games (that's for me!), but that's a function of the parents and the content warnings on the packages. Also, the NRA continually says that there should not be tighter restrictions on the ownership of guns because of the 2nd Amendment, but are okay with tighter restrictions on the ownership of video games? It's a little counter-intuitive.
