Nanny State and Armed Neutrality Don't Mix

The tiny Alpine confederation of Switzerland--notable for mandating that able-bodied men keep automatic rifles in their homes--is considering imposing a ban on violent video games because, truly, banning video games is the best way to reduce violence.

One estimate shows that legislation might ban up to 16% of video games (those rated for gamers age 16 and up). That means the Command and Conquer series, Rainbow Six, and most of the Tomb Raider games might soon be verboten.

First minarets, now Lara Croft?
