Senator Lamar Alexander: Video Games ‘A Bigger Problem Than Guns’
The Tennessee senator believes images of guns on video screens are more dangerous than actual guns.
When asked on MSNBC about proposals to reduce gun violence, such as requiring universal background checks, Alexander indicated that he was skeptical of the legislation.
“I’m going to wait and see on all of these bills,” he said. “I think video games is a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people. But the First Amendment limits what we can do about video games, and the Second Amendment to the Constitution limits what we can do about guns.”
