What Trump is not putting in consideration about video games

  3. What Trump is not putting in consideration about video games
As Trump blames violent video games for mass shootings, please see below

Video Game sales per person per year:
🎮 Japan = $96.06
🎮 USA = $63.45

Gun deaths per 10,000,000 people per year:
🔫 Japan = 6
🔫 U.S.A = 1016

The problem is NOT Video Games
The problem is ASSAULT RIFLES

Also 40,000 car deaths in the U.S last year, should we ban cars also?

Exactly fuck cars, we don't need them as public transportation is becoming more accessible every year.
But on the topic of videogames, should they e banned? No they shouldn't and won't but they should tone some things down.

The answer is... Japan doesnt got the same access to guns like USA.

It got absolutely nothing to do with a guncrazy culture and NRA throwing around money, no sir!

Europe make and play plenty of games too, and you don't get massacres like this there.

Yes. Go on diets, walk everywhere, become swolle as fuck and you'll see how healthy the US will start becoming.
Look, a signature! *Runs away!*
<<Karma's a b****!>>Especially true on Gamefaqs! XD
People don't realize that the vast majority of people behind gun deaths, particularly gun crimes, won't stop without guns. America has a gang and youth violence problem that has so many more factors behind it that whining about guns:

1) Won't get rid of the guns.
2) Doesn't address the root causes as to why the guns are being used in the first place.

Trump doesn’t give a shit about video games. Blaming something tangible, despite how ridiculous it is, is a good public relations move in the wake of a tragedy and is designed to improve his ratings. This has nothing to do with gaming. Learn to politics.

Trump doesn't put a lot of things in consideration. Like what is good for the country or anybody that isn't him.

Hes well aware of what the issue is. He's also well aware of. How much money he gets from the NRA.

correlating two things and disregarding the context doesn't prove any sort of causation.

i don't agree with the line of thinking either but don't make us look worse with garbage interpretation of statistics

No, the problem is the lack of assault rifles. If everyone has a gun, everyone can defend himself. If guns were to be banned, nobody could defend himself. Criminals would still be able to get guns the same way people get drugs.

The problem isn't vidya or guns. If I referred to the problem directly, I'd be banned. I'll just say they don't have that problem in Poland.
Remember, no amount of pokemon-loving soy boys using the word "overrated" will ever lessen the quality of a genuinely good game

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

TC mocks Trump for not understanding while completely misinterpreting the statistics.

U.S. 
1016 total gun deaths/10MMyr
648 gun suicides/10MMyr
334 gun homicides/10mmyr
7 rifle homicides/10mmyr

"The problem is ASSAULT RIFLES" deeeeerrrrrrp

Could we cut down on mass murder rates by getting rid of assault rifles? Maybe. We don't have enough data to say. 
Could it have an appreciable effect on the overall gun violence rate? Not a chance. The data is overwhelmingly clear. 

Using total "gun death" or even gun homicide rates to argue against assault rifles is either an underhanded ploy or oblivious ignorance just as bad as blaming video games.

Did anyone here even once consider the issue is not the video games nor the guns but actually the drugs these killers were taking? Try taking THAT into consideration.

This. Supreme Court already ruled in on this nearly a decade ago. 

This is all just a bunch of bullshit political theater to distract you from the actual problem: the goddamn guns.

There are hundreds if not thousands of pre-existing laws and restrictions on firearms. How many more will be enough?

Drugs don't shoot people, man.

Real talk, because that requires money and brain cells. There is a huge problem in our perception of mental health and how inconsistently we treat it. But that doesn't lock in votes.

Back in the 90s, the TEC-9 was the main gun for shootings.
A pistol.
The biggest school shooting in US was Virgina Tech, and the shooter used two pistols.
Im not saying that assault rifles are less dangerous, just that a dedicated shooter can do huge damage with any type of gun.

The TEC-9 was originally suppose to be a submachine gun, and thus was easily converted back to full-auto.

It would be my main choice if I was crazy enough to do a school shooting.

People keep blaming guns, then conveniently forget that the most devastating mass killings in US history didn't involve guns. Including everything from terrorist attacks to school attacks. It's a cultural thing, not a video game/movie/music thing, not a weapon thing.

Can you explain how it's not a weapon thing when removing the weapon would prevent the thing from happening

Thanks!

Remember, this isn't about what you think should be the case. It's about preventing people from having their teenage children murdered, so what you think the ideal society would be is irrelevant.

Look forward to your well-reasoned reply!

Can you explain how removing a specific type of weapon ended the crime that weapon is commonly involved in? Did crime just up and die in one of these countries where guns were banned or confiscated?

decades ago, it was culturally acceptable to be racist
hopefully sometime soon, it will be culturally acceptable to not have a fetish for guns and have more empathy for innocent people (especially children).
