Pennsylvania lawmaker calls for tax on violent video games to pay for school security

PENNSYLVANIA -- A Pennsylvania lawmaker wants to pay for school security by taxing violent video games.

The proposal by state representative Christopher Quinn would slap a 10 percent tax on video games rated "mature" or "adults only."

The Delaware County Republican wants to spend the revenue on bulletproof glass, metal detectors and security cameras.

The bill has not yet received a vote in Harrisburg, but has bipartisan cosigners.
