There is a bill before Gov Roland proposing that no one under age 18 can play a stand up shooting style video game. I'm getting real sick of this socialist mentality.

Does it also include a section on making guns with your hands? Otherwise, without video games, they will just point their fingers at each other and say bang bang bang. The Horror. Please, protect our Children! We are all already sick of this crap. Time to make a stand and do something. We just need a leader to lead.

Hee hee hee. I was just talking about this the other day. It turns out that the shoot em up games are OK as long as the "targets" are not humans. So anyhow a sponsor of the bill (Lawlor) ended up being grilled about it in a line of [i]Star Trek[/i] related questions. It was determined that: He has watched [i]StarTrek[/i]; He knows what a Klingon is; it is OK to shoot Klingons in a game; he knows what a Vulcan is; Vulcans are fair game also.

Ignorance gone wild!

So it's the government's position that it's okay to shoot people of other races, then?

Sounds like your gov is from merry old socialist England. I bet he has alot of sheeple support for such nonsense too. Seems like the more freedom east coast and west coast people lose the happier they are. As long as it stays in your neck of the commie woods.

I wish we can shorten their terms to 1-2 years - that way they will be continually preoccupied with running for reelection to do anything stupid. Just a thought.

Dam! another case for gun control. I'm sure that will stop a whole bunch of crime.
