US president Donald Trump has suggested that violence in video games and films is the root of the country's on-going gun violence catastrophe.
Speaking yesterday, as reported by Kotaku, Trump said - well, rambled - blaming anything but the firearms industry for the repeated high school shootings.
"Maybe we need a rating system"
“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.
"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.”
A ratings systems for video games? America has had ESRB since 1994.
