Just when you thought that you heard every crazy, unfounded, and just plain ignorant, thing you could; here comes another doozy. US Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Ten.) flat-out said that “video games are a bigger problem than guns.” Don’t believe it, see the video with your own eyes above. How something like this can be said is beyond us, especially when there is no scientific evidence linking video games to violence. If Lamar Alexander was not a fan of games, that is one thing. It is entirely another to go on national TV and say something that irresponsible. If I were a resident of Tennessee, I’d be ashamed.
