A New Jersey lawmaker wants to ban violent video games in all public places.

Assemblywoman Linda Stender (D-Union) believes such games can numb children to violent behavior.

That’s why she plans to introduce legislation that would prohibit amusement parks, movie theaters, bowling allies, retail stores and other public places from making games rated “mature” or “adults only” available to play.

If the law passes, offenders could face fines of up to $10,000 for a first offense and $20,000 each time after.
