Rep. Marsha Blackburn Takes Aim at Call of Duty on CNN Segment

January 14, 2013 -

On CNN's State of the Union with host Candy Crowley, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TENN.) sat in on a panel discussion about gun control and the likelihood of legislation being passed by the current Congress. But instead of discussing gun control, Blackburn decided to take a few shots at Activision's Call of Duty series. Blackburn said that in preparation to appear on the show she watched some video of the game and was shocked at the violence she saw... she also called the game "Call to Duty."

"I watched a couple of these [games] last night in preparation for this segment, and Candy, as a mother and a grandmother, I was astounded with some of the things that I was seeing on 'Call to Duty,'" said Blackburn

Like many other pro-gun politicians Blackburn also mentioned the need to strengthen mental health programs and to investigate the affects of "psychiatric and psychotropic drugs."

You can watch the video for yourselves to your left.

Wait until she's hears the Xbox live voice chat for the game.  Then she will try to ban it.

Call of Duty is marked and intended for players 17 and older.  If you are suddenly, as a mother and grandmother, worried about what these games may or may not be doing to you kids/grandkids, then you haven't been do a very good job of raising them.
