Democrat introduces bill to restrict access by minors to violent video games

Rep. Jim Matheson (D-UT) has introduced legislation that would require all retailers to prevent the sale of violent video games to minors:

Matheson's Video Games Ratings Enforcement Act, H.R. 287, would make it illegal for anyone to ship, distribute, sell or rent a video game that does not bear a label from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) on the age-appropriateness of the game.

Maybe Representative Sensenbremnner can be a co-sponsor

A Republican congressman is calling on President Obama to denounce a new "video game" that allows users to shoot what appears to be a likeness of National Rifle Association President David Keene in the head.

The downloadable video game was apparently produced in response to NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre's speech shortly after the Connecticut shooting massacre. In that address, LaPierre suggested violent video games have played a role in America's high murder rates while rejecting calls for more gun control.

The video game -- called "Bullet to the Head of the NRA" -- appears to re-create the speech, while allowing players to target and shoot a figure by the podium who resembles Keene.

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., in a letter to Obama, urged him to condemn the game.

Or maybe this GOP proposal can be implemented

A Republican lawmaker from rural Missouri bucked her party's anti-tax bent on Tuesday and called for a sales tax on violent video games in response to a deadly Connecticut school shooting.

Rep. Diane Franklin, of Camdenton, said the proposed 1 percent sales tax would help pay for mental health programs and law enforcement measures aimed at preventing mass shootings. The tax would be levied on video games rated "teen," "mature" and "adult-only" by the Entertainment Software Rating Board, the organization in charge of rating video games.

Wasn't Christie the same guy who took a stand against Planned Parenthood and gay marriage?

Dunno, but his true colors have come out since Hurricane Sandy.

Gun control: Catholic Church firmly, quietly opposes firearms for civilians

http://www.uscatholic.org/news/2011/...arms-civilians

01/2011

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- The Catholic Church's position on gun control is not easy to find; there are dozens of speeches and talks and a few documents that call for much tighter regulation of the global arms trade, but what about private gun ownership?

The answer is resoundingly clear: Firearms in the hands of civilians should be strictly limited and eventually completely eliminated.

But you won't find that statement in a headline or a document subheading. It's almost hidden in a footnote in a document on crime by the U.S. bishops' conference and it's mentioned in passing in dozens of official Vatican texts on the global arms trade.

The most direct statement comes in the bishops' "Responsibility, Rehabilitation and Restoration: A Catholic Perspective on Crime and Criminal Justice" from November 2000.

"As bishops, we support measures that control the sale and use of firearms and make them safer -- especially efforts that prevent their unsupervised use by children or anyone other than the owner -- and we reiterate our call for sensible regulation of handguns."

That's followed by a footnote that states: "However, we believe that in the long run and with few exceptions -- i.e. police officers, military use -- handguns should be eliminated from our society."

That in turn reiterates a line in the bishops' 1990 pastoral statement on substance abuse, which called "for effective and courageous action to control handguns, leading to their eventual elimination from our society."

On the world stage, the Vatican has been pushing for decades for limitations not just on conventional weapons of warfare, such as tanks and missiles, but also for stricter limitations on the illegal and legal sale, trade and use of small firearms and weapons, said Tommaso Di Ruzza, the expert on disarmament and arms control at the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

Di Ruzza told Catholic News Service that the Vatican is one of just a handful of states that would like to see small arms and weapons included in the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, which would better regulate the flow of conventional arms.

He said while many countries are open to limits on larger weapons systems, most nations aren't interested in regulating small arms even though they "cause more deaths than all other arms (conventional and non-conventional) together."

The Vatican's justice and peace council is working to update its 1994 document, "The International Arms Trade," to further emphasize the importance of enacting concrete controls on handguns and light weapons, he said.

The current document calls on every nation and state "to impose a strict control on the sale of handguns and small arms. Limiting the purchase of such arms would certainly not infringe on the rights of anyone."

The more weapons there are in circulation, the more likely terrorists and criminals will get their hands on them, the document said.

The Catholic Church recognizes that "states will need to be armed for reason of legitimate defense," as Pope Benedict XVI said in a message to a Vatican-sponsored disarmament conference in April 2008.

However, armed defense is something appropriate for nations, not for all individual citizens in a state where rule of law is effective, said Di Ruzza.

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, individuals have a right and a duty to protect their own lives when in danger, and someone who "defends his life is not guilty of murder even if he is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow."

How that "lethal blow" could be licitly wielded is unclear, but the catechism clarifies that repelling the aggressor must be done "with moderation" in order to be "lawful" in the eyes of the church; using "more than necessary violence" would be unlawful, it says.

According to the catechism, the right to use firearms to "repel aggressors" or render them harmless is specifically sanctioned for "those who legitimately hold authority" and have been given the duty of protecting the community.

Di Ruzza said that in "a democracy, where there is respect for institutions (of law), the citizen relinquishes his right to revenge onto the state," which, through its law enforcement and courts system, aims to mete out a fair and just punishment.

"There is a sort of natural right to defend the common interest and the common good, and in 1791 (when the United States passed the Second Amendment), my right to have a weapon served the common good because there wasn't an army; the democratic institutions were young and a little fragile, and I could have been useful in a time of war as a soldier," said Di Ruzza.

But once a nation has a functioning army, police force and court system, "do I still serve the common good with my gun or do I put it at even greater danger?" and promote a lawless kind of "street justice where if you steal my car, I shoot you," he asked.

The Vatican's justice and peace council's 1994 document said, "In a world marked by evil and sin, the right of legitimate defense by armed means exists," but, Di Ruzza said, it wasn't lauding the potential of weaponry as much as it was lamenting the existence of arms in an imperfect world.

Nations have a duty, the document said, to reduce if not eliminate the causes of violence.

And as Pope Benedict wrote in his message to the disarmament conference, no reduction or elimination of arms can happen without eliminating violence at its root.

Every person "is called to disarm his own heart and be a peacemaker everywhere," the pope said.

Today's Show: THE JESUITS, GUN CONTROL, & THE WAR ON THE CONSTIUTION

Chris discusses a story posted in the New York Times featuring an op-ed piece by a Jesuit law professor from Georgetown University who is calling for an end to the U.S. Constitution. Could there be a new American Revolution on the horizon? If the old Constitution is done away with, what will replace it? And who will be the new authors of such a document?

Today's Show: PHARMAKIEA - THE MISSING LINK IN THE GUN CONTORL DEBATE?

Chris discusses the disturbing pattern found in nearly all of the the various school-type massacres that have happened for the past 20 years. Emerging evidence proves that all of the killers were on some kind of psychiatric, mind-altering drug. In the Bible, the word "pharmakeia" (from which we get the modern word "pharmacy") is usually translated "witchcraft" and signifies the practice of sorcerers in the ancient world who used drugs to make contact with the spirit realm. While politicians and the media are calling for more gun control, are they overlooking the most significant detail? Is it possible that these murderers were driven by evil spirits to commit their awful crimes?

Nah we should just have another game that shoots the likeness of our congress and pres. All of this shit is just turning into a mud slinging contest as usual and nothing will be done, as usual. Its all about scoring political points for these assholes. What a fucking joke. I can't wait until our economy finally blows up in our face. Instead of worrying about our debt and spending, we are worrying about stupid video games. 4.5 billion dollars is what Obama is going to spend on his executive orders over this gun issue. What a fucking waste of time and money. Cause we all know if a criminal wants to go massacre 20 people it doesn't matter if he has a gun or a knife, its going to happen.

And if we really want to save children, how about starting with abortion. How many little caskets does Planned Parenthood have a part in?

At the heart of the gun contol grab is private property. Marxists from Lenin to Obama hate the idea of private property, as they see all land, all property should belong to the state. The trouble in confiscating all private property is the 2nd amendment. The federal government would run out of US Marshalls and BTF agents if they tried to confiscate your property. So they have to first take away your guns before they can take away your property.
