The lights are on
Leland Yee, who authored the anti-game legislation in California that was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2011, says gamers aren't qualified to weigh in on the debate about violent games.
Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle, Yee said "Gamers have just got to quiet down. Gamers have no credibility in this argument."
So, there you have it! All of us gamers had better shut our mouths and let the experts (like Yee) just handle this whole controversial subject for us.

SMH, We have no say? Yeah okay
Also mentioned in the interview: drivers have no credibility in the debate about car safety, and politicians have no credibility in the election process. Oh wait, I read that wrong, it actually reads like this: politicians have no credibility.
Eh even I think gamers themselves aren't really good investigators to violence studies: that's better off to epidemiologists and health behavior analysts.
