Gamers need to 'quiet down' says CA senator

California senator Leland Yee, whose much-publicized violent game law was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2011, has offered a new message to gamers: quiet down. Speaking to The San Francisco Chronicle in the wake of last month's schoolhouse massacre in Newtown, Conn., Yee criticized gamers and the industry at large.

"Gamers have got to just quiet down," Yee said. "Gamers have no credibility in this argument. This is all about their lust for violence and the industry's lust for money. This is a billion-dollar industry. This is about their self-interest."

Yee is not the only politician taking aim at the game industry following December's deadly shooting. Politicians in Washington, D.C., as well as President Obama himself, have put forth legislation and orders aimed at examining violent entertainment and what role it may play in real-world violence.

Yeah, just another guy telling us to shut it so he can push his own agenda in peace. **** that waste of space, cannot stand people who have the brass to label an entire group of people as people who lust over violence, and he tells the group he is attacking that we have no credibility? Give me a break.

i guess everyone with an opinion would like the opposition to "quiet down" but that's not how life works. Not suprised it's a democrat.

I mean, he's right...just has the wrong motivations.

The ignorant masses are far too vocal and they are dragging the entire group down.

I'm a liberal who supports gaming. Your partisan drivel doesn't help anything.

So what would the counter argument be? We need millions of teenagers to continue to assure the government that they play violent games but don't kill people irl? Everyone knows the vast majority of people aren't killers, everyone knows people in other countries don't react with the same level of violence as the US does, despite being fed the same amount of violence. It's time to let the big boys talk and sort things out. The extremists who want to ban games haven't been getting their way for decades, I doubt it'll change now.

If we had a lust for violence, I'm pretty sure a bunch of nerds would have infiltrated his house and killed him by now.

*sigh* I blame the patriots.

Truth hurts doesn't it? What party do most anti-gaming politicians align themselves with...hmmm I wonder...

Also, remember this guy?
