Donald Trump Thinks Violent Video Games Are To Blame For Gun Violence

The presence of video games can encourage violence? Trump's comments on violence in mass media echo those made by LaPierre following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012, calling the gaming industry "a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows violence against its own people".

Thus, he's probably hoping that movies will start doing the same thing, where you'd go to see an R-rated movie and know if it attained that rating for violence or nudity or being too incredibly scary or more than one use of the word "fuck" (which has actually happened).

The FBI was warned about the Parkland shooter, who killed 17 students and faculty members last week, after he left a comment in Sep.

As part of his attempt to respond to the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, President Trump suggested what seems, at first blush, like a movie ratings system, which, of course, we already have. They may, the American Psychological Association said in 2015, increase the tendency toward aggression.

Trump did not acknowledge that in the US, movies and video games are already issued ratings based on their violence, language, and mature content, with the Motion Picture Association of America and the Entertainment Software Rating Board having the ability to place restrictions on products that aren't deemed appropriate for viewing or purchase by those under 17 years of age.

"That's just a really pathetic excuse on behalf of the president", said Chris Grady, 19, a senior. "So it's just, it's pathetic".

So, yes, Trump, it would be a good idea if "they" implemented ratings systems for movies and video games.

"You have these movies today and you can have a child go and see the movie and yet it's so violent and disgusting, so we may need to talk about that also", said Trump. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks!

President Donald Trump is suggesting a national ratings system for movies, saying the level of violence in some is extreme and contributes, he thinks, to gun violence. If sex isn't involved, but killing is involved.

Much research has been done to see if there is, indeed, a link between violent video games and violent acts.

Movies have received age-restricting ratings in the US since the 1930s, with the current ratings system from the Motion Picture Association of America being implemented in the '60s and followed by the two major theater and movie distributing groups in the U.S.
