However, to suggest that games are worse than guns because they affect people does – at least to me – seem to be a rather foolish argument. The only thing this statement has achieved is to highlight the fact that some politicians fail to understand that this issue is extraordinarily complex, and that it will not disappear if they attempt to use video games as a scapegoat.
