A bill to arrange for the National Academy of Sciences to study the impact of violent video games and violent video programming on children.

Bipartisan stupidity.  David Kopel wrote about this a while back.  Both the “weapon effect” and “exposure to violent video games and harmful effects on children” are based on the exact same junk science.

The sponsor and half the co-sponsors are Democrats and yet the stereotype of the prudish Republicans lives on in the minds of young gamers.  Wayne LaPierre is not helping in this respect.
