Vice President Joe Biden meme from the last election Reddit

In a closed-door meeting with religious figures, Vice President Joe Biden made statements concerning the possible taxation of companies that make violent video games.

Franklin Graham, CEO of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, was present at the gathering. Regarding the issue, Graham was told by Biden that there's "no restriction on the ability to do that, there’s no legal reason why they couldn’t," Politico reports. Here we go again!

Considering that Biden has been mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2016, we're surprised that he would consider such a stance to begin with. After all, the youth vote was paramount in the both Obama-Biden victories in 2008 and 2012. Upsetting a large of group likely voters would not help his election chances.

What do you think of Biden's comments? Do you think he has a point? Are you sick of video games being blamed for actual violence like we are? Sound off in the comments below.
