U.S. Tenn. State Senator Lamar Alexander believes video games pose a greater threat than guns, according to a statement he made during The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd on MSNBC.

A video of the statement was posted by YouTube by Daily Kos, a weblog that covers current events and politics from a liberal perspective.

"I think video games is [sic] a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people," Alexander. "The First Amendment limits what we can do about video games. The Second Amendment to the Constitution limits what we can do about guns."

Senator Alexander is currently marked as one of the National Rifle Association's "A Team," 49 members of the senate who have "unqualified support of the NRA," according to Credo Action.
