Brazilian politican seeking to ban violent videogames

Videogames just can’t catch a break in South America.

Valdir Raupp, a senator from Brazil, has put forth a bill that calls for the banning of violent videogames in the area. The bill will “curb the manufacture, distribution, importation, distribution, trading and custody, storage [of] the video games that affect the customs [and] traditions of the people, their worship, creeds, religions and symbols.”

The bill has already passed through the Senate’s education commission, and will be voted on in Brazil’s Committee on Constitution and Justice. Should it pass, violators could see a 1-3 year prison term.
