Ok, so this is a parenting issue. The end. Seriously, that's just what we need more taxes. All because people won't discipline their children. I happen to like those games. Thank you lazy no good parents for giving the government more reasons to tax us. Make your kids put down the controller and go out side if they say no beat their ass. Teach them discipline and respect and we will not have this problem. And rep. Fourkiller, seriously, leave it, incase you haven't noticed we have enough government over-reach and micro management in our lives, and if this is how your spending taxpayer dollars shame on you.

if the bad kids would get a punishment other than a slap on their hands maybe you wouldn't have to punish the good kids.
i believe this has been tried a dozen times around the country.
