"Obama also aimed to thaw what the White House called a "freeze" in scientific research of gun violence by the Centers for Disease Control. And he urged Congress to bankroll the CDC to do research into possible linkages between violent video games and other media images and real-life violence, to the tune of $10 million." (source)

Maybe you don't like guns (2nd Amendment).  And maybe you don't like videogames (1st Amendment).  But what will happen when the government wants to regulate something you do care about?  Who will speak up for you?
