It seems that lawmakers from Pennsylvania (USA) has put a proposal to establish a 10% excise tax on violent video games.

The law, which is named House Bill 109, aims to impose ‘sin tax’ on games that’s rated by the ESRB as M for Mature or Adults-Only.

Money gathered from that would go to a fund called the “Digital Protection for School Safety Account”, which aims to enhance security measures at schools that has been going around in the country.

State representative Chris Quinn has said that violent video games might be an element in the rise of school shootings in the United States of America.
