POLL: Do violent video games contribute to mass shootings?
In his address to the nation Monday morning regarding the two mass shootings over the weekend that killed a total of 31 people, President Trump addressed a topic that has come up before – the possibility that violent video games are contributing to the growing trend of killings.
President Trump suggested that America needs a change in culture, saying, “We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace…It is too easy for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately.”
“Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun,” Trump said.
Some researchers denounce the claim that violent video games make people want to kill. According to a report by Vox, when a popular video game comes out, violent crime actually goes down, not up.
On Sunday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also suggested that video games is one factor behind gun violence.
