  • President Donald Trump is vowing to "do something" to stop violent video games as part of his solution to solving mass shootings like the one that took place in Parkland, Florida.
  • The President has criticized gaming culture and the ease with which young people can see films featuring graphic violence and bloodshed.
  • "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," he said.
  • Are violent video games a part of the problem? Have we become desensitized to death with it being so accessible and routinely depicted?
