In recent gun control meetings with Vice President Joe Biden the video games representatives stated that violent video games are not a causal effect of violence in young people. Biden stated that he was not going to make the video games lobby a scapegoat for the problem, but Biden is actually trying to make the NRA a scapegoat with gun control.

The American Association of Pediatrics stated the video games are indeed a causal effect of violence in our young people, and studies have proven that.

As a recommendation, how about reinstating the "Hays Code" for the entertainment media, which was cancelled by the MPAA in 1968? Let us go to the source of the problem instead of a political fix that doesn't work.We are a learned society, and young people learn what we teach them.

There is an old saying, "as you sow, so shall you reap." Let us stop training our young to be killers.
