Democrats attacking the First Amendment too
There are two fronts to this attack right now: video games are being attacked as if labeling games will stop mass murders, and Obama is using a proposed new SEC regulation to force corporations to disclose the political groups they provide financial support for.
I wish the NRA hadn't given them cover for the effort to mandate and enforce video game labels. I don't object to voluntarily labeling, but I do object to government mandated enforcement. Video games are not to blame for crime.
The required corporate disclosure is also troubling, as Congress has considered and rejected such laws repeatedly, and the Supreme Court has rejected the idea of campaign finance limitations being placed upon corporations (Citizens United) as being violations of the First Amendment. The First Amendment is generally considered to protect anonymous speech.
