Trump puts some blame of mass shootings on video games.

Here we go again. Another mass shooting another person in power wanting to point the blame on video games.

First of all its sad and tragic that this happened and we never want things like this to happen but unfortunately they do.

Second, I don't get why video games always get the blame and bad rap. Not saying they should but why not they say movies and music can play a role on one's mental state.

How many people imitate Al Pacino in Scarface? All the violence and sex in music, especially rap songs which is todays most popular music in America. No its always soley video games.

I know nothing of the two shooters so I dont know if they played video games or how there personal life was but maybe that was it. It could be nothing of entertainment had a play in this and it all stems from personal life. From home to the persons job, to just the outside world these two shooters deal with on a daily basis. You add that up for years, decades and some people snap.

Dont know if anyone goes to IGN but they wrote a great counter argument to Trump blaming video games. There are other countries that have access to video games and play as much as we do yet no mass shooting. Only in America. So these countries play games just as much as us yet its not affecting or influcing them to go out and do these horrible things.

Yes because when I play a video game that involves guns, my 1st thinking is I am going to go out and kill somebody.

I know I played a lot of Super Mario Bros when I was a kid and took a lot of mushrooms when I was a teenager. Musta been that damned video game.

I know 90s nostalgia is in style, but could it just be the good part of it?

Blame everything to detract from guns is the tactic.

blame video games instead of the evident problem with letting citizens own deadly high powered military grade weaponry. That should throw em off the scent.

The image that @Draykorinee ; posted is the only answer people need every time this argument rolls around. Trump clutching at any straw to deflect from the fact that the manifesto written basically had his words in it.

Re: Trump puts some blame of mass shootings on video games.

The confession I truly have to make is that sometimes I have an outer-body experience, have to paint myself blue, go to as many jewelry stores as I can and steal as many gold rings as possible. There's a large gentleman with an equally as large moustache that constantly tries to stop me but I just bounce on his head 8 times and he shakes his fist in defeat until the next time my urge comes along.

For real, Trump is an empire state wanker.

It looks good on him to talk about tragedies in a community when he has the power to stop it from happening.

He's just as much a murderer as any gunman.

Who elected this moron?

Everyone in the world plays video games yet it's really USA where this a common occurrence.

If you're seriously trying to pin this on video games, you've either got an agenda and are protecting someone or you're straight up stupid. In Trump's case, he seems to be both.
