Trump Proposes Ratings System For Violent Video Games, There’s Just One Problem…

Help us cover the political revolution:

“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,” the president said. “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.”

  1. Not only do we have a game rating system. Its one of the most well enforced rating systems.
    If there is ANY problem with violent video games it's the parents who buy M rated games for their very very young kids.

  2. Dude. Don't make me defend Donald. He didn't say a rating system for video games. He said one for movies. independent of the sex. I disagree both ways, but still… be honest with your reporting.

  3. The Republican decision making model is to defend what makes them money and blame any problems on things that don't make them money. "NRA gives me money so guns are good, porn and video games don't make me money so they're bad". One of their favorite talking points is, "guns don't kill people, people kill people".. Yeah. People with guns, you lying con jobs. Guns don't load themselves with bullets and pull their own triggers. A man in China not too long ago attacked a school with the intention of killing young female students. Do you know how many died? Zero. No one died because he had no access to guns and had to use a knife. Did he cut them? Yes, but they lived. They subdued him long before he could kill anyone. Guns are the problem. Weapons of war must be the first to go, but all guns need to be restricted, registered and controlled. A regular bullet like a 9mm fired from a handgun will enter through the body and damage whatever tissue by piercing a hole through it (usually exiting in a straight line provided it doesn't ricochet off a bone). The risk is usually shrapnel not the wound itself (unless you bleed out) and often organs can be repaired. An assault rifle bullet (especially the "cop killer" armor piercing rounds) don't just enter and exit. They turn your insides into mush. A bullet fired from an assault rifle (traveling over 2000MPH) doesn't need to touch an organ to make it explode into viscera. Doctors are unanimous on the opinion that the wounds caused by these weapons leave them absolutely powerless. The injuries sustained, even when the bullet touches no arteries or organs, are almost universally lethal. You need to insanely lucky to be hit in meaty areas (quads, deltas, glutes, biceps, etc) to have a hope in hell of surviving (and your odds are next to nil of that happening). Again, America has its blinders on, so here's a reminder, other countries have had mass shootings and they stopped them completely . America isn't unique. Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand – all have the same porn and video games that the US does. Why aren't there any mass shootings? Because they got rid of the goddamn guns . Enough is enough. Either your rep votes to control guns, or you vote their ass out of office!

  4. Kinda ridiculous that In America you can buy guns at the corner shop but you can't buy a kinda egg. Even when you send them your customs deem them to be so dangerous they destroy them. And now the trumptard speaks on another subject he knows nothing about. Studies have already debunked the idea that video games cause kids to be violent.

  5. The US government is a role model for anyone that is a proponent of gun violence. How many perpetual wars in USA involved in now? I lost count. We have a culture of war and violence. Our movies reflect our violent cultural climate they do not create it.

  6. I'm pretty sure that there have been more murders, wars, and genocides openly credited to various religions that there have been even tangentially related to video games.

    Any politician willing to discuss putting an NC-17 rating on, say, the Bible? I can think of one major Christian that cited their belief in God as justification for starting a war against an unrelated party that resulted in hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths, thousands of American soldiers being killed or wounded, and destabalized the Middle East so badly that terrorism became a major international threat.

  7. This is another pandering tactic to stray away from the fact that we can't do anything about gun control, so they pass a bill on porn, and try to do shit like this. The video game industry needs to start buying off the politicians like the nra does, then we'd never ever hear a word again about violent video games. If video games caused violence then I would have been killing people since I was a kid. (Disclaimer) I HAVEN'T.

  8. Stop comparing us to Japan what's Japan's prison population how bad is homelessness in Japan also Japan has a suicide forest filled with dead bodies maybe we should adopt that as well life is so miserable in Japan people are killing themselves regularly and they work exponentially more hours than us because they don't have a choice and there's a myriad of other differences between us and Japan you just pointing out the ones that suit your narrative
