Forums - Politics Discussion - Trump Wants Something Done About Violent Video Games And Movies; Blames Them For School Shootings.

https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/02/president-trump-we-have-to-do-something-about-violent-video-games-movies/

"We have to do something about what [kids are] seeing and how they're seeing it," Trump said during the meeting. "And also video games. I'm hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is shaping more and more people's thoughts."

CNN reached out to an unnamed 17-year-old Parkland High School student following Trump's remarks. When asked about the president's statement, the student replied, "That's just a really pathetic excuse on behalf of the president. I grew up playing video games, Call of Duty, all those first-person shooting games. I would never dream of taking the lives of any of my peers."

lol, politicians always want to blame video games.

Oh hey, I'm back in the late 90's/early 2000's again.



I'd blame the liberal gun laws and obsession with shooting things for American school shootings...



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Trump really showing his age here.

Well if he really pushes it they will do something. Seems he gets what he wants more often than not.

Typical sjw tactic. Putting words into other people's mouths when they didn't actually say that. He didn't actually say he wanted to ban video games. He only brought up a rating system. Once he realizes there's a rating system, he'll just move on.



Please let me know what video game people have been playing for the past 5000 years.



Yeah right, it's video games that cause shootings and not guns, never guns...
Some people have very serious issues with logic. Spock would have a heart attack if he lived in America now.
