The ongoing debate on video games and their connection to gun crime in the United States is still raging it seems, with Vice President Joe Biden soon to meet up with games industry executives in an effort to find solutions to the country’s recent rise in gun crime.
The call for the meeting comes in the wake of the tragic shooting that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary, which saw 20 children and 6 adults lose their lives to one lone gunman. With American law allowing citizens to bear arms, alternatives are being sought other than the outright ban of all firearms.
Other sources are also attending the meeting, including the National Rifle Association, with the ban of Assault Rifles on the agenda. In a statement released by White House spokesperson Jay Carney, “Biden’s group will also meet with representatives of the entertainment and video-game industries.”
As to what will happen after the meetings conclusion is anyone’s guess, could we see stricter laws hit video games, even though no solid evidence of its connection to gun crime have surfaced?
