What is the dumbest thing you've ever heard of? OK, forget about that, because THIS is about to take over as the world's next dumbest thing on the planet.

In fact, this is so stupid, that it will literally scare aliens away from visiting us. Elon Musk is going to be upset when he finds out aliens have moved farther away all thanks to a Democratic Rep. who wants to ban a video game because carjackings are up in Chicago.

Let's just lay it out there folks - I played every GTA game there is and I still haven't car jacked anyone. I thought about it once or twice when I was at a red light and some dimwit sat on their phone while everyone honked as it turned green and they just sat there, sat there, and sat there until they finally moved. Luckily, for them, I didn't have to get out and f-ck them up.

Does anyone think banning a video game is going to stop carjackings? And does anyone think the people playing the game are the ones going out committing the crimes? Probably not even the same group of people. Maybe a little bit here and there, but let's be real, this is really, really, stupid and will absolutely NOT slow down crime.

Here's what Chicago Sun Times said:

Rep. Marcus Evans Jr. wants to amend a 2012 law preventing some video games from being sold to minors. Friday, he filed HB3531, which would amend that law to ban the sale to anyone of video games depicting “psychological harm,” including “motor vehicle theft with a driver or passenger present.”

Evans had been contacted in January by Early Walker, who started Operation Safe Pump to prevent carjackings at gas stations and shopping centers. Safe Pump positions security guards from the Kates Detective and Security Agency in areas with high numbers of carjackings.

“The bill would prohibit the sale of some of these games that promote the activities that we’re suffering from in our communities.” Evans said.

Walker said he reached out to several state legislators to ban the video game after noticing similarities in local incidents of carjackings and actions players can make in the video game.

“I feel like this game has become a huge issue in this spectrum,” Walker said. “When you compare the two, you see harsh similarities as it relates to these carjackings.”

I've seen fights on the football field. Are we going to ban Madden too? What about Duck Hunt? You know how many digital ducks went down as that dog laughed at us when we missed? Let's ban Duck Hunt to make sure no one ever hunts ducks again.

How about we ban Paperboy while we're at it. Wouldn't want to see anyone get hit with a newspaper. Wait, WTF IS A NEWSPAPER? Does anyone read those anymore?

Looks like Rep. Marcus Evans is just blaming video games because he never played it. If he played GTA5, he'd know how much fun it is, especially when you pull that beach bimbo into the alley right before getting in a 5 star cop chase.

But let's keep it real, Marcus - you know damn well this is a lame attempt to keep your job.

Why don't ya fight crime like a man and hold criminals accountable? How about creating programs for job training and getting people OFF the streets and teaching them skills they can use to make legit money?

Sometimes people break the law because they need to, not because they want to.

You think anyone wants to go to jail?

Why does someone have to steal a car and sell it for money? Because they don't have a job and they might have someone to feed at home.

Stop worrying about video games and start teaching people skills that make them better all around people.

This way they don't turn out to be a jackwagon like you.
