Jack Thompson Writes Obama

Jack Thompson Asks Obama For Nationwide Ban On "Killer Games" reproduces a letter from disbarred but unbowed anti-gaming zealot Jack Thompson, addressed to United States President Barack Obama. The letter references the recent school shooting in Germany and, taking a page from the playbook of fellow fanatic David Grossman, repeatedly makes use of the phrase "murder simulator." He also outlines highlights of his ten-year campaign combating violent video games that began after his attempts to blame society's ills on rap music began falling on deaf ears. After a decade of effort, he has finally concluded the only solution is to ban violent games altogether:
I conclude by asking you, one father to another, to take the bold moves necessary to get these murder simulators out of America. We have more guns than people in this country. We are training our teens to be Manchurian Candidates to use them and to author what will be more Columbines, more Virginia Techs, and more shattered communities.

Not at all. Just the "I have a right to defend myself" and "the constitution says so" crowd.

I guess that American's view the supreme law of their land in a different light than people in other nations do. I myself can't comprehend why people of other countries take issue with Americans being protective of their freedoms and their right to protect themselves. Do you know what it's like to be afraid to go to the grocery store, or pump gas, or stop at a red light, or even sit in your own living room? Robberies, rapes, murders, daylight home invasions, et. al. are a normal fact of life where I live and work.

They say it helps to walk a mile in someone else's shoes. Maybe if we swapped countries for a year? I could come live your life, and you could have mine. Of course, I somehow think you'd be getting the raw end of that deal...
