White House Video Game Violence Discussion Fails to Move the Needle

White House Video Game Violence Discussion Fails to Move the Needle

Following, the group deliberated the First Amendment protection of the games and the scientific correlation between the games and violent behavior. Thursday's session was closed to media shortly before it began, when an unrelated event was added to Trump's schedule.

The industry contends that decades of research have failed to show a direct link between gun violence in real life and violence in video games, TV and movies.

A montage video of bloody and brutal scenes has been created by US President Donald Trump's administration, to showcase extreme video game violence. After the meeting, Rubio acknowledged there is no evidence linking violent video games to the tragedy in Parkland. As for controlling the violence in video games: as previously mentioned, the ESRB already rates games based on their violence (and other content as well) - just as the MPAA rates movies based on their content - and they've been doing so since 1994.

He said he talks about it with his children and will say "you know that's a video game right?"

'It's hard to believe that, at least for a percentage of children, maybe it's a small percentage, that this doesn't have a negative impact on their thought process, ' Trump said in his meetings with lawmakers. Glixel reported that it kicked off with a reel of violent video game clips, which reportedly left the room in stunned silence.

Over the years, the National Rifle Association has long pointed to violent video games as the reason for violence in children as they look to shrug responsibility of easy access to guns.

Sarah Sanders pictured during Wednesday's White House press briefing, when she claimed Donald Trump had won arbitration against his alleged porn star ex-mistress (AFP) Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, sued the president Tuesday to release herself from a non-disclosure agreement she says is now invalid (AFP) Trump and Daniels.

The White House didn't respond to a request for comment about the meeting, nor did representatives for Hartzler or the Parents Television Council. "This meeting will be the first of many with industry leaders to discuss this important issue".

Further, today's video game players are not the stereotypical teenage boy living in his parent's basement, McLean noted.

"They were violent clips where individuals were killing other human beings in various ways", she said.

"We're going to be very fair and very flexible, but we're going to be protecting the American worker", the president said.

'Like all Americans, we are deeply concerned about the level of gun violence in the United States, ' Hewitt said.

The process of announcing the penalties has been the subject of an intense debate and chaotic exchanges within the White House, pitting hard-liners against free trade advocates such as outgoing economic adviser Gary Cohn aiming to add more flexibility for US trading partners. The ESA put out a statement saying that its representatives focused on the many studies that disprove the correlation between real world violence and video games. In fact, a 2016 study conducted by the Southern Economic Association determined that general violence in society decreased in the weeks following a major video game release. Years earlier, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) sought to restrict sales of mature-themed video games to minors. "We must have a meaningful conversation about mental health issues and other possible cultural and societal contributors to violent behavior, such as violence in video games".
