HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Lawmakers in Connecticut are now considering legislation that would create a new task force to study how violent video games affect children.

The bill will create the proposed Violent Video Game Task Force at the Department of Children and Families.

According to the bill, lawmakers want general statutes to be amended to prohibit a business from allowing a someone under 18 years old from playing a violent point-and-shoot video game.

The Legislature's Children's Committee is scheduled to discuss the bill during a public hearing Tuesday.

The issue has divided many because some of the mass shootings across the country have a violent video game connection, but video game industry experts argued the games don't cause any harm and are already regulated with ratings.
