Just facepalm. I mean it's like nobody looks on the back of the game, and says"OH, it's an M rated game for a reason, lets just buy it for our kids anyways"

I mean Facepalm people.

Edit: Yea as somebody pointed out. This isn't mandate. It's a group of people doing this.

That's the thing about society today. You could literally punch a parent with bronze knuckles while burning "THIS GAME IS INAPPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN AND ITS RATED M BECAUSE IT'S VIOLENT" and they still would return it a week later because they found out it was inappropriate and try to get the employee who sold it fired.

Luckily those kind of parents are close to being dead, and (hopefully) the newcomers and soon-to-be-parents will be smarter than that.

God a lot of parents are idiots. Thank god my mom isn't.

I didn't even play my first M game until I was 15 3yrs ago. Even then I only bought it with my parents, and I informed them about the game. I turned out well in fact.

And I agree parents are idiots.

Wasn't Adam Lanza mature enough to play Call of Duty? Not that I blame COD for the shooting. But the real issue here is mental health and a need for better gun control laws..

Just to clarify for anyone who doesn't read the article, this isn't by federal mandate. It's only a protest by a bunch of ordinary people. Granted, many of them are grieving, so I'll belay any harsh words.

This is the kind of stupidity that allowed Obama to get elected for 2 terms. People are just ignorant and brainwashed.

If that helps them feel better by all means. . .

I just hope that the coping skill will last them when unpreventable tragedies continue to occur and there isn't anything left to burn

Meanwhile I will continue to play violent video games and continue my education as a professional counselor

From what I've seen is that they're an annoying batch from both groups. Conservatives are more out spoken on it at times though. I'm also a Conservative, but I'm more of a Liberal type Conservative. Actually I'm neutral.

Although I dislike Obama I know he has little power, and not enough to make any severe changes, unless he can influence the Judicial.

You have that mixed up. The parents that actually would supervise their children are close to being dead. It's the newcomers and soon-to-be-parents that are being lazy and expect everyone else to raise their kids for them as they don't lift a finger to even try.
