Democratic California Senator Dianne Feinstein has again spoken out against violent video games. Today on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Feinstein said these games can be enablers for would-be mass murderers. "I think the really violent video game becomes a kind of simulator to practice on. And it enables the individual to become much more familiar with that depiction of death and blood," Feinstein said, referencing the exaggerated way in which some games depict violence and death.

"Of course it's not the way it is in real life," she added.

During an event last week, Feinstein said violent games play a "very negative role for young people." She said if the game industry continues to make games that glorify guns, Congress may intervene.

Feinstein's recent comments follow December's schoolhouse massacre in Connecticut where a 20-year-old killed 20 children and six adults being taking his own life.

The shooter was reportedly a "deranged gamer."

So we should get rid of great works of art that display violence too or great books or movies or music?

i dont know why everyone freaks out over this stuff so much.

they speak out against gamers all the time, its just a method of rallying support, and it doesnt have enough backing to ever achieve anything substantial. so everyone just relax

Do not get me started. As a gamer and as a person who enjoys shooting/hunting, I fucking hate that bitch. She knows nothing about guns or games, and tries to get them banned, when they're honestly some of the best outlets for anger. If I'm mad, I'll shoot up a strip club in GTA, and I will no longer be mad. She and the liberal media think that if a shooter ever came within 5 miles of a video game, it's imminently responsible.

Remember the only billionaire conservative politician who had a gripe towards video games was Jack Thompson? I miss him namely because he was the outlet

I think I'll pull a bat out of thin air and beat a hooker to death. Then I think I'll feel the urge to steal a police car and use his shotgun to shoot several civilians.

Then when they jail you for 5 minutes you'll find a pink dildo, a stun button, a 9MM, and an assault Shotgun lying in the Prison Washroom

I think it's funny how a lot of radical liberals think they're open-minded because they're liberal. She seems like one of those people to me.

^ liberal anymore almost means not open-minded

Congratulations, you found my point.

you said radical, I broadened it to most

She was also the one behind all the gun ban legislation. In her radical-ass bill, she wanted to ban the use of phaser gun attachments for assault weapons. I'm not kidding.

And yeah, knowing how to press R1 to shoot things is basically the same thing as years of military training. Good practice.

She assumes that if I play 100+ hours of Fallout New Vagas I am gonna hack the IP Address of the CIA and nuke the fuck outta Korea.

she needs to shut the hell up and try learning before speaking but I sometimes question whether she is even intelligent enough to learn to read.

I like how before there were video games, they said that people who killed numerous people had problems, now it's the video games fault.

Before games they blamed movies, before that music, before that books, before that art.
