Towns Buy Back Violent Video Games
As the gun control debate continues in Washington, small towns are taking steps of their own, including expanding gun buy-back programs into the entertainment field.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the story:
In Melrose, Massachusetts, Mayor Robert Dolan is setting up a program to give gift certificates and vouchers for things like a night of no homework to families who turn in violent video games and movies.
(Dolan) “If they were to take away all of these things, it’d still be bad people doing bad things. But in our small nook, we can maybe foster some real discussion and some action on our violent society ’cause we know something’s broken.”
In Southington, Connecticut, a similar program was cancelled, though organizers say their main mission – sparking a debate on the issue – was accomplished.
Vice President Biden met with video game makers at the White House on Friday as part of his gun control task force.
