Brazilian Senator Seeks Violent Game Ban

Valdir Raupp, who is both a senator and a lion of a man, has put forward a bill seeking to ban the sale and distribution of violent video games in Brazil.

Raupp is looking to "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".

A senate education commission has already approved the bill, meaning it's on its way now for a vote in Brazil's Committee on Constitution and Justice. If passed, anyone caught violating the law could face 1-3 years in the slammer.
