  • Gamers Rebuke Critics Who Blame Video Games for Violence

Patrick Markey, a psychology professor at Villanova University who focuses on video games, has found that men who commit severe acts of violence actually play violent video games less than the average male, according to the Associated Press.

In a speech Monday, Trump blamed "gruesome and grisly video games" for a "glorification of violence". Violent video games and mental health?

The urge to blame video games rather than, well, guns for America's mass shootings seems more than a little ridiculous to many.

Lieberman said entertainment companies may have a right to do that, but they also have a "responsibility not to do it if we want to raise the next generation of our sons to treat women with respect".

Trump used a White House address to the nation to outline what he said were the causes of the mass murder, accusing the internet of providing a "dangerous avenue" which was twisting minds.

After the massacre at the El Paso Walmart this weekend, McMillon said the company "will be thoughtful and deliberate in our responses". It is too easy today 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", said Trump.

The memo instructed employees to remove marketing material that displays violent imagery, as well as unplug or turn off video game consoles that show violent games. "Yet other societies, where video games are played as avidly, do not contend with the tragic levels of violence that occur in the U.S".

Since the Columbine shooting in 1999, video games have been a political talking point in the wake of mass shootings, even as studies continue to show that there is no link.

Authorities believe Patrick Crusius, 21, wrote a racist, rambling screed that railed against mass immigration before opening fire last weekend at the El Paso Walmart.

In 2017 the Pew Research Center found that 30 per cent of Americans surveyed believed that gaming contributed "a great deal" to gun violence.

Following 2 horrific mass shootings across the country, politicians are using video games as a scapegoat to explain the bloodshed that left 31 dead and dozens more wounded.

Aurora Bubbaloo tweeted, "I've made a lot of fantastic friends thanks to video games".

For example, a study published this year looked at more than 1,000 British adolescents. In 2011, the court struck down a California law that prohibited the sale of violent video games to children.

The shooting in El Paso came days after a Walmart employee shot and killed two other workers in Southaven, Mississippi, and a day before a gunman killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio.
