Why is it always democrats introducing bills to go after video games?
They should make a new slogan for the party, The DNC: Where personal responsibility is taboo. Or The DNC: It's always someone else's fault.

I don't think that's the case. They do tend to be Democrat sponsored, but I'd say it's no more than a 60/40 split.

A search turns up the following:

US HR231 2009 (warning labels) - D/R
US HR4204 2012 (warning labels) - D/R
US HR5990 2008 / HR287 2013 (restriction of sales to minors) - D
CA AB1792 & AB1793 2005 (labeling, restriction of sales to minors) - D
CA AB 1179 2005 (restriction of sales to minors) - D
IL HB4023 2005 (restriction of sales to minors) - D/R
LA HB1381 2006 (restriction of sales to minors) - D/R
MD HB707 2006 (restriction of sales to minors) - D/R
MI HB4702 SB416 2005 (restriction of sales to minors) - R
MN HF1298/SF785 2005 (restriction of sales to minors) - D/R
MO HB157 2013 (tax on violent video games) - R
OK HB3004 2006 (restriction of sales to minors) - R
UT HB353 2009 (restriction of sales to minors) - D/R
WA HB 1009 2003 (restriction of sales to minors) - D
WA HB2178 2005 (restriction of sales to minors) - D

So 5 Democrat-sponsored bills, 3 Republican-sponsored ones, and 7 co-sponsored on both sides of the aisle. So call it 55/45%.
