(UNION) - As the country continues to mourn the lives tragically lost in Newtown, CT, Assemblyman Joseph Cryan (D-Union) on Friday asked video game enthusiasts to join the national Day Of Cease Fire For Online Shooters and put their controllers down in honor of the victims.
"Whether or not you believe that violent video games influence violent behavior, I think we can all agree that cutting down on violent imagery in light of this terrible tragedy is not only appropriate; it is necessary," said Cryan. "There are no words to describe what transpired in Newtown. As we try to cope with the losses and understand the motives, let's show the families affected that we stand with them against the senseless violence that took their loved ones. I encourage all video gamers to take a break from the video games today and pay respect to the victims by participating in the cease fire."

"When you're asked to cast a vote on a bill and it seems innocuous, and it's got a hidden land mine that perhaps only an expert would see, it would sort of behoove those experts to tell us in advance rather than make us look, shall we say, a little bit indecisive later on." - Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25).- NJTV
