Philippines Mayor Wants Minors Banned from Violent Video Games
Maybe he just wants to be like Arnold. You know, tough guy in a nice suit?
Alfredo S. Lim, Mayor of the city of Manila, which is also the capital of the Philippines, wants violent video games to be banned for minors. Sound familiar? It should, because we’ve covered stories about lots of different states here in the U.S. trying to pass measures through their state legislatures.
Lim’s actions came at the request of the Philippine Alliance Against Pornography, which I guess is all about trying to get rid of porn. If successful, instituting this ban would be similar to a recent law set in place prohibiting video games from being played near public high schools from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
And we think being a kid here in the United States is hard.
