Look over there!

The NRA is playing the right's favorite game right now, trying to blame the Newton shooting on video games.  Ed Asner summed up this debate by scape-goat approach nicely as "Look Over There!" in the video Tax the rich

The thing is, even if you buy this ludicrous argument, it makes no internal sense.
30% of America plays video games.  Therefor, by their own logic, 30% of america cannot be trusted with a firearm.

How do they propose to deal with this?  (Do the words "Gun Control" perhaps spring to mind?)

I smell a whiff of desperation in all of this.
