President Trump links video games to mass shootings, explained | Just The FAQs

President Trump says video games contribute to the culture of violence that leads to mass shootings in the U.S.. Research says otherwise; we explain.

Video games again have been invoked as one of the causes of violence in the U.S. in the wake of mass shootings this weekend in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

President Donald Trump, who last year held a video game summit after the February 2018 Parkland, Florida, shooting that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was among several public officials who called out video games as a potential factor in shootings, mentioning video games and violence.

President Donald Trump on Monday condemned white nationalism and said he supported “red flag” laws, which could limit a person’s access to firearms if the person is determined to be a potential threat to the public.

He also decried, “the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace.”

  7. With all the killing going around I have to wonder if killings were ever thought about in the past? What is this book called the Bible anyway, and who wrote it? No doubt these writers Descendents are writing sitcoms and jackass movies today. Is there any way we can take this book seriously anymore? I'll leave these few words behind that comes from the Bible and see if anybody can figure it out for themselves. Is life to be taken seriously or not? Religion wants more protection under the flag, should not people have the right to decide for themselves if they should live or die? Maybe we should put it to a vote what do you say?

    According to the Bible Moses said God is the eternal mind that lives in all of us. This being said it makes me wonder if you can kill anybody? It would seem you have to kill God first. Killing someone in the flesh does not mean you killed them in the spirit, it is the spirit we hate not the flesh so what is the point? Maybe a good guy with a gun cannot kill a bad guy with a gun what you think? What do you think Jesus would say? As a through hiker on the trail I also care about mother nature sometimes wondering what she is thinking? I wonder how she feels with so many intelligent monkeys running around claiming to be human with no heart to back it up. What if mother nature was to ask us the most important question of our time… Human, just what are you and what is your name? If we were to answer "I am what I am" I do not believe she would accept that as a true enough answer. Maybe we should go ahead and drop the bomb and do mother nature a favor removing this infestation of the flesh off her planet.

    PS. The answer is no, I do not want to buy a gun and kill somebody I just want to know if anybody gets my humor anymore. In my opinion, the human race has lost its funny bone.

  8. blame the corrupt and evil Government and military to mass murders and suicides and murder suicides.
