It's the guns. The motherfucking automatic rifles that no civilian should have at home. The US values guns and money more than people lives, it's that simple.

The 2nd amendment is what guarantees the US will never become the likes of China and Venezuela. You de-arm the civilians, the government can do whatever they want without worrying about any major retaliation. While I do agree that no one should have a need for military grade weapons, the US population has been carrying weapons for centuries now, and it hasn't been till recent times that society has deteriorated to this division that people are losing their minds. Sure, have gun control with major background checks, but that's not the entire solution, there's a sever issue in the core of society that's fueling this rage among people. But no matter what, each person has the right to defend themselves.

I'm sure the civilians in those countries protesting getting mercilessly beaten with no way to defend themselves would agree with you. 



Wow proof again that Goverment and the "president" is a bunch of pussies and instead of going one on one with the NRA and adding a few check and balances that most Americans agree with. They pick on a easy target with weak lobbyists such as video game industry. So pathetic. It ain't video games clearly. Check yer house USA!

No surprise, but Trump has jumped on this too. He did much the same in Feb-March 2018.

Yea just saw article saying Trump is jumping on the against violent video games talking about it today.  I remember that press conference he did awhile back with mainly anti video game people roundtable session.  I bet all this negative news (along with tariff) will make most video game stock drop.  Nintendo should be safest but the experts will group them all together.  I know sad to be thinking money off of tragedies but it's happened before.  Believe gun stocks used to rise mainly after mass shootings but they aren't doing so hot lately because the Obama Boogeyman no longer threat of taking guns away.

While I don't share your fear of the government suddenly turning authoritarian because the civilians don't have enough guns (hasn't happened in Canada yet), I'm not even going after the right the carry handguns. It's certainly not for me but I get why someone would want one for defense but automatic weapons, bump stocks and whatever else specifically designed to kill multiple people in a few seconds, that shit has got to go!

Once again using the videogames as a scapegoat so people don't focus on the REAL cause.



Didn't it just come out that the Dayton shooter was some pro-Antifa whack job? I don't think that's a video-game related incident.



They do love to say BS. It is more that maniacs may play games than games make people maniacs.
