In this article, we will be discussing Donald Trump’s latest statement on the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Trump seems to think violent games are glorifying killing and causes mass shootings. What do you think of this? Drop your opinions in the comment section on our Facebook post!
What Did Donald Trump Say?
Donald Trump’s statement follows as:
“We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace. It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence.”
However facts are facts. Facts are needed to make a statement true, however Mr Trumps statement has no facts to back it up. While some leading psychological organizations in the US say that children should not play violent video games because it may lead to aggressive behavior, there are no findings from research that demonstrate a direct connection between people playing violent video games and mass shootings.
We would love to hear your opinions on this whole situation. 30 people have lost their lives in these past 2 mass shootings in the USA and many other injured from the shooting. These acts of terrorism are truly awful and we hope Donald Trump can put some changes in gun laws to prevent this cowardly acts from happening again. Our thoughts are out for victims and their families.
