Letter to the Editor: Unconstitutional vs. wrong 1

By Zach Gray – Former Co-Editor-in-Chief, Class of 2014

They continue to sell by the millions and create controversies with the government. They can be found in nearly every dorm room on campus, both male and female. They, of course, are video games.
