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

It’s not the first time that Donald Trump has harped on about violent video games being the reason for gun violence in America, but it’s the first since he’s been in office.

“We have to look at the internet, because a lot of bad things are happening to young kids and young minds, and their minds are being formed, and we have to do something about maybe what they’re seeing and how they’re seeing it. And also video games.”

“I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts. And you go one further step and that’s the movies. You see these movies, and they’re so violent, a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn’t involved, but killing is involved, and maybe we need to put a rating system for that.” said Trump.

Obviously, this isn’t going to fly with a lot of people. A bunch of people obviously play violent video games without ever committing mass murder with firearms.

In 2012, after the Sandy Hook, Trump also tweeted about video games creating monsters.
