Videogames, First Amendment and Writing Resolutions

  • 1.  Videogames, First Amendment and Writing Resolutions

    Posted Feb 06, 2013 12:38 AM
    Hi everyone, I'm continuing a discussion I started on ALATT about video games and censorship. I'm really concerned. Videogames continue to be scapegoated whenever violent events happen. I think everyone here understands that videogames are neutral mediums just like books. However, I think it needs to be made more clear to members in our association and it needs to be writing. How about if we write a resolution amending the policy manual to add videogames wherever it's needed. Is anyone here on Council who will be willing to help me with this, for presentation at Annual? Thanks in advance.
