#1 Some video games are inapproprate for children (or mentally ill). The ratings system is a joke.
Public burnings is going a bit far (and since a lot of games are distributed over the net - there's nothing to burn...)

#3 CF, the rating system isn't a joke. It's parental responsibility that demands other do the parenting for them that's the sad cultural joke. Back when I was a wee tot, they were blaming comic books. Got to find someone/something to demonize for the ritual burning ceremony. Human nature hasn't changed from the first recordings of history.

#5 "What is government if words have no meaning?"
Giffords gave Loughner the wrong answer when he asked her the question above, so he decided to murder her.
Adam Lanza reportedly did not feel (or mentally process) physical pain.
The truly mentally ill will show an abnormal reaction to stimuli. Censorship would be useless.
If these neo-puritans were really concerned about realistically violent popular culture they'd go after the Gangsta Rap section of the music industry.
Gansta Rap is both music industry and organized violent crime.

#10 If Mayor Blossomburg had been mayor of NYC on 9/11 NYC would have rounded up all box cutters and fight similators for burning. Its the liberal thing to do.
