News U.S. VP Biden: No Legal Issue With Taxing Violent Media

Absolutely nothing to do with raising more money to pay off the debit that they are looking at this.

Participants in the behind-closed-doors session told Politico (via Game Politics) that Biden said there is "no restriction on the ability to do that; there's no legal reason why they couldn't" tax violent media.

He also said that that he would like to see a comprehensive study done regarding the impact of violent games and movies on young people.

The NRA took possession of his testicles and spine then?

He also said that that he would like to see a comprehensive study done regarding the impact of violent games and movies on young people.
Or he could just read one of the many myriad of studies already done into the impact of violent media on young people. Then again that wouldn't appease the NRA and it's cronies now would it? So that's a tax where the cost will be passed on to the consumer, millions wasted on a study just to confirm once again what we already knew and firearms getting off scot free again.

Nice one Joe!

Don't suppose there's any chance the headline is referring to violent media that is mentally taxing?
