Apparently Senator Leland Yee (Democrat - California although you had to read to paragraph 23 in the Newspaper of Record to find that out), the stridently anti-gun senator known most recently for being an arms dealer is also a big proponent of restrictions on violent video games. He claims that "gamers have no credibility" when opposing restrictions on video games. Apparently that standard doesn't apply to arms dealers when lobbying for more gun laws.
BTW, if you are a regular watcher of CNN you might not have heard this story. Their response to questions regarding why they didn't cover this story was "we don't do state senators". Au contraire. They just have to be state senator stories that advance the Democratic party's cause.
