The controversial Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has now caught the eye of some UK Parliament members, but not in a good way.

A motion has been put forth by Keith Vaz which requests that further precautions are taken when distributing the title and based on his previous motions set against violent video games, he basically wants the title to be banned due to the game's significant amount of violence. Vaz's reasoning is a fairly popular one; violent video games encourage violent people.

"This House is deeply concerned about the recently released video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, in which players engage in gratuitous acts of violence against members of the public," said Vaz.

Currently only 9 members have signed the motion as of yet. Whether or not Vaz has actually played the title is still unsure.
