Games More Dangerous Than Guns, Says US Senator

The latest US politician to speak out against games following the Newton school shooting has said that games are a bigger problem than guns.
Speaking on MSNBC’s The Rundown, Tennesse Senator Lamar Alexander (R) said, "I think video games is a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people.
“But the First Amendment limits what we can do about video games and the Second Amendment to the constitution limits what we can do about guns."
Meanwhile, President Obama is taking the problem seriously enough to ask Congress to fund research into the relationship between games and violence. Similar bills have already been put before the House twice since the massacre in December.
We reckon technology capable of firing bullets at over 1000 feet per second is more dangerous than games about wizards and elves, but hey we're not doctors.
