The answer hinges on whether you can prove a connection between watching, or playing, violent games and performing acts of violence. And, on that point, there is no doubt. Remember Columbine.

Of course there’s a connection! Why do we ban the sale of pornography to children? Because we know the harm it would do and the unhealthy behavior that might result. Nobody disputes that.

All the more reason, then, to ban the sale of violent video games or movies to children — as even Clarence Thomas will probably agree. After all, we know he’s watched plenty of pornography. Now he’ll have to watch some violence, too.
