GamePolitics reports that Tennessee state senator Tommy Kilby, a Democrat, has pulled his SB3891 game bill from the legistlative calendar — so for all intents and purposes, it’s toast.
What made this bill noteworthy from all other game bills is that it wanted to ban violent games entirely, regardless of a gamer’s age. Or as Gary Oldman might say, “EEEEVERYONNNE!” GamePolitics also notes that Kilby ended bill himself, instead of trying to fruitlessly ram it through the First Amendment wall.
Nice try, though. Actually, no it wasn’t.
