A town in Connecticut is hoping to make a difference by collecting and destroying violent video games. The games will be broken and burned. Can you defeat violence with a burning?
A small community about 30 miles from the site of the Newtown massacre is organizing a voluntary video game return program, aimed at collecting violent video games from families and likely burning them.
The Violent Video Games Return Program offers up gift certificates in exchange for violent games, music and movies turned in during an event later this month.
The collected items will then be broken and later incinerated by town employees.
