What Benefit to Game Legislation?

Plagiarize over at Aelon asks a great question:

Again, let’s look at England. They have the legal controls, and more and more consoles are providing the software controls.

So why is it then that in the last two days, two different stories have been laying blame at the door of the game developers for two seperate cases of violent crime committed by teenagers?
-- What is wrong with Britain?

All the more evidence that this morality play the lawyers and politicians are trying to run with is little more than a hill of beans. If we enact these laws, it's not going to stop any violence. Just like ignoring the real cause of any problem won't solve it.
