Kevin McCarthy Expresses Concern About ‘Dehumanizing’ Violent Video Games After Shootings

Politicians in United States of America (specially Republicans), have for a long time insisted on links between mass shooting and violent video games despite various studies showing otherwise. "We have to look at ourselves as a nation, there are many factors that go into these shootings, many factors". I'm exhausted because they're not even events now, they feel like commonplace. "When you look at these photos of how it took place, you can see the actions within videogames".

The idea of these video games, they dehumanize individuals to have a game of shooting individuals and others.

In a television interview on Fox News "Sunday Morning Futures" when asked about the two deadly mass shooting in Texas and OH the top Republican expressed his concerns about the "bad influence" of video games. One thing he blamed the shootings on was "a video game industry that teaches young people to kill".

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick (R) shares McCarthy's concerns and urges authorities to "condemn" video games for the "evil" it propagates. "How long are we going to ignore, particularly at the federal level, doing something about the video game industry". We've watched from studies shown before what it does to individuals. Patrick said according to the Washington Examiner. "In this manifesto that we believe is from the shooter, in this manifesto he talks about living out his 'super soldier fantasy on Call of Duty'". It's pointless playing the blame game after people have already lost their lives, that's not helping anyone, but every time there's a horrific tragedy like this, people are so occupied with pointing out what they think the problem is but never actually take any steps. The players of games and violent games have only become more diverse.

"This was maybe a video to this evil demon-a video game to him", he said.

He acknowledged that "there have been studies that say [videogames] impact people, and studies that say it does not", but added: "I look at the common denominators, as a 60-something father and grandfather myself, what's changed in this country?"

"We've always had guns and evil but what's changed where we've seen this rash of shootings..."

"Researchers find that people serving time for violent crimes typically consume less media before committing their crimes, than the average person in the general population", Jenkins said according to the paper. A 2015 report from the American Psychological Association, for example, found a "consistent relation between violent video game use and increases in aggressive behavior, aggressive cognitions and aggressive affect".
