Readers might remember that, last week, California Senator Leland Yee told the San Francisco Chronicle that in the argument of whether video games cause gun related violence, gamers have no credibility on the issue and should quiet down.
In a Twitter post, Yee apologized for the comment. [quote]“Meant video game industry has inherent conflict of interest in the gun violence debate”[/quote] was what he had intended to say. In a follow up post, Yee said that he has respect for many gamers, some of whom are his staff and family. However, he goes on to say that the video game industry profited at the expense of children.
