Idiotic Bill Proposes 10% ‘Sin Tax’ On Violent Videogames To Stop School Shootings

Yeah, this is a logical route to take when trying to prevent mass murder, right? A stupid bill, put forth by an imbecile, proposes a 10% tax on videogames rated M or AO, with the money going toward security.

Yet more scapegoating and grandstanding from politicians who don’t want to really fix a problem, but look like they give a damn.
