Let me make this absolutely, 100%, crystal clear, as a Johns Hopkins-trained scientist and ER doctor:

There are ZERO studies linking video games to gun violence.

There are MANY, MANY studies linking increased access to guns to gun violence.

@GOPLeader, you are a lying coward.
It doesn't even make logical sense. Video games are also hugely popular in countless other countries but they don't have mass shootings like we do. Unless video games only exist in the US, Iraq, and Afghanistan, then the logical conclusion isn't video games. It's GUNS.
"well criminals will always get guns"

So if we can't fix something 100% we shouldnt try? Better dissolve ICE and tear down all border walls then.

The idea isn't that better laws will make it impossible. The idea is to make it way, way harder.
Oh and before the trolls show up, I guess I should clarify: zero CREDIBLE studies.

I welcome any challenge to that, show me a study that "links" gun violence to video games and I'll tell you why that study is bullshit
Okay now it needs to be said rather than replying to all the nonsense USA Today/other bullshit articles:

CORRELATION IS NOT CAUSATION. That's a bullshit study. History Channel viewership correlates with gun violence. Increased Mustang ownership correlates with gun violence.
Show me CAUSATION studies.

I'll save you some time, there are none.

ALL attempts to credibly link video game playing to any kind of increased violence or even mental illness have failed.

All that remains are clickbait correlation-only studies, which are worthless.
