[EN]: Since the debate about violence in gaming returned to the limelight due to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, a politician has today blamed the electronic entertainment industry once again.

Leland Yee, a California senator known for writing a bill to prohibit the sales of games to minors, has criticized gamers in a recent interview with the San Francisco Chronicle.

“Gamers have just got to quiet down… gamers have no credibility in this argument,” Yee said.

Even after the 2011 Supreme Court case ruled his California bill as unconstitutional, Yee thinks “this is all about their lust for violence and the industry’s lust for money. This is a billion-dollar industry. This is about their self-interest.”

Leland Yee, un senador de California conocido por haber escrito un proyecto de ley para prohibir la venta de videojuegos a menores de edad, ha criticado a los jugadores en una reciente entrevista con el diario San Francisco Chronicle.

“Los jugadores tienen que guardar silencio … los jugadores no tienen credibilidad en este argumento”, dijo Yee.

Incluso después de que el caso de la Corte Suprema de 2011 dictaminó que su proyecto de ley de California como inconstitucional, Yee piensa que “esto tiene que ver con su deseo de violencia y la lujuria de dinero de la industria. Esta es una industria de miles de millones de dólares. Esto se trata de su propio interés”.

    Don’t blame the games. The problem is that the people who play violent games and end up shooting people in real life, are already before playing the games mentally unstable. I’ve played a lot of violent games and yet I’m actually against violence. I’m only okay with violence as long as it stays in movies and games. And I think 99% of all the gamers out there would agree with me.
