Quote | Violent movies already have a strict rating standard.

"We have to look at the Internet because a lot of bad things are happening to young kids and young minds, and their minds are being formed. And we have to do something about maybe what they are seeing, and how they are seeing it. And also, video games, more and more people saying that the level of violence in video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts. And then you go to a further stuff, and it is the movies. You see these movies. They are so violent, and yet, a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn't involved, but killing is involved. And maybe they have to put a rating system for that."
