QUIZ:   Chapter 9 Quiz on Blackboard

DISCUSSION: A new major video game distributor has released a first-person shooter game that allows you to go into schools, businesses, and other public areas and shoot innocent characters to score points until the police eventually kill you.  The game is rated so that no one under the age of 18 can purchase it. Should we use our vast media holdings to argue the game should be banned?
