We’ve heard a lot of about lawmakers wanting to levy a tax on violent video games and such, but today’s news is a bit different. Vice President Biden (yes, the second most powerful person in the US) wants to levy a tax on media companies who make and distribute violent content, and the money from those taxes as proceeds for victims of violent crimes.

Yeah, like government would allow any taxes to go to a good cause...
But, there might be something behind the violent video game effecting people.
I played god of war straight through, and for two days I was trying to cut people in half with imaginary chaos swords...

Children aren't allowed to be punished anymore. Which has led to less and less teens/children having no understanding of consequences until it's already too late. No one feels anything for anyone anymore. They aren't taught to.
