Follow him on Twitter travfed.The following day, a man with a gun in Dayton, Ohio, killed nine people — including his sister — in another mass shooting. Between the two shootings, 31 lives were taken and dozens of people were injured. These are just the latest instances of mass shootings in the United States, which happen at an alarmingly frequent rate.
On Monday, when President Trump addressed the nation, he once again claimed that "gruesome and grisly video games," among other forms of entertainment available all over the world, are to blame for the mass shootings that are endemic in American culture. That claim continues to lack evidence backing it up, and is little more than a distraction — here's why:.
Back in Apriltwo young men with guns went to their high school in Colorado and killed 13 people. It was a horrific tragedy, and one that was still new in American culture at the time. In the weeks following, what came to be known as the "Columbine High School Massacre" was dissected by the media and politicians.
The two gunmen quickly became the focus of that dissection. What could have driven these two young men to perpetrate such a horrific act? Was it society? Their upbringing? Their surprisingly easy access to weapons capable of mass murder? No — it was decided that their interest in the musician Marilyn Manson, their proclivity for black clothing, and their penchant for playing violent video games were to blame.
Since the Columbine High School massacre inand even before that, researchers have been studying the effects of playing violent video games. What they've found is simply put: Playing violent video games doesn't lead to real-life violent acts. Inthe American Psychological Association outright warned against journalists and lawmakers connecting real-life violence with video-game violence:.
There's little scientific evidence to support the connection, and it may distract us from addressing those issues that we know contribute to real-world violence. When the APA looked at various studies of violent video games and whether playing them had any relation to aggressive acts, it found "scant evidence Speaking to the New York Times this week, Ferguson, now a psychology professor at Stetson University, summed up the data succinctly: "The data on bananas causing suicide is about as conclusive.
The numbers work out about the same. Every year, when a big new "Call of Duty" game comes out, it comes out all over the world. Yet, despite the increasing popularity of video games on a global scale, only the United States has seen a vast increase in mass shootings. Look no further than the helpful chart above from Vox for an illustration, in bar chart form, of why the argument that violent video games cause real-life violence is false.
Talking about gun regulation is poison for American politicians, and doubly so if you're a Republican politician.
No matter what happens — whether 31 people are killed in two mass shootings over a summer weekend, or 17 people are killed by a student with a semi-automatic rifle in a Florida high school, or 26 people are killed in a Connecticut elementary school 20 of which were children between the ages of 6 and 7 — almost nothing changes.
Despite dozens of mass shootings since Trump became president in Januarynext to no new gun regulations have been imposed the Trump administration did ban bump stocks in late — a gun attachment that turns semi-automatic weapons into fully automatic weapons — and the ban went into effect federally in early Instead, politicians stick to talking points that are agreeable for everyone: Thoughts and prayers are offered, discussion of mental health and violent video games resurfaces, and, eventually, conversation turns back to other issues.
But make no mistake: It's a distraction, and one that politicians are quite aware they are using. Account icon An icon in the shape of a person's head and shoulders.
