Rejected petition Ban the use of violent video games in the U.K.

Following the recent news that child on child sexual assault figures have soared, I strongly feel the use of violent video games needs to be banned in the UK. What good can EVER come of a person playing a "game" in which terrorising, shooting, stabbing, maiming and raping others is normalised.
