Lawmakers in Chihuahua are asking for a ban of the upcoming video game that simulates Juarez drug cartel gun battles.  Sunday, Ricardo Boone, a Chihuahua legislator spoke out against the game.

A ban of the game in Mexico may push Mexican gamers looking for the title into El Paso stores.

Ubisoft, maker of  "Call of Juarez: The Cartel" has scheduled the game's release for July 1st.

They can't help the people of Mexico with jobs, violence, or drugs but they can ban games? This is laughable. They think this game depicts Mexico badly? Yeah video games that's Mexico's problem video games yeah. LOL.

Does that mean the US can put a ban on all the juke boxes in the US playing the ever popular "Narco Corridos" being recorded in Mexico? Humm, seems like a double standard. But I forgot, its our fault for their Failing State.
