Brazilian Senator Looking To Get Offensive Games Banned

We know Australia has it tough, and Germany can sometimes get humped when it comes to 'mature' games being released, but now Brazilian senator, Valdir Raupp has put forward a bill to get 'offensive' titles banned from release:
"We seek to protect the principle of equality - for many the greatest of constitutional principles - with the characterization of such discriminatory conduct as a crime by making provision in the law."
Said it before and I say it again. Ban violent videogames, ban violent movies and books. Don't pick what you want to get in front of the media. Funny how Brazil's culture is a little more dangerous, squalid and kid-nappy as opposed to Britain, which is relatively mild and well behaved and we let just about anything go.
