The Video Game Voters Network is launching a campaign to show California State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) that gamers care about censorship by sending him a message -- on old and broken controllers.

An organization sponsored by the Entertainment Software Association, the Video Game Voters Network is taking this action as a protest against California's contested legislation that would restrict the sale of violent video games to minors. Authored by Yee when he was still in the California State Assembly, the law was challenged and is now under consideration by the U.S. Supreme Court.

To take part in the protest, the Video Game Voters Networks asks that:

  • 1) Take an old or broken controller and write "I believe in the First Amendment" on it.
  • 2) Put it in the box and take a picture. Submit the image to the Video Game Voters Network.
  • 3) Mail the controller to Sen. Yee at The Honorable Leland Yee, 455 Golden Gate Avenue, Suite 14200, San Francisco, California 94102.
