This comic is dedicated to Southington, Connecticut. The town that launched a $25 violent video game buy-back program. Citizens are encouraged to take all violent video games to a dumpster behind the local movie theater where they will be incinerated. In return the Chamber of Commerce will issue $25 gift cards to participants for “non-violent” activities.
We usually try to steer clear of political comics, but this attack on video games has gotten rather ridiculous. Instead of taking responsibility and trying to come up with a legitimate solution to the problem, we turn and look for someone or something to blame. Plenty of other countries have violent video games and a fraction of the gun violence.
