Games Industry Could See Intervention from Congress

Borderlands 2

US Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) made a statement this week, warning the games industry that Congress might step in if it doesn’t stop glorifying gun violence.

According to an article on GamesIndustry, Feinstein spoke in San Francisco on Wednesday and said that violent video games play “a very negative role for young people, and the industry ought to take not of that.”

She cited the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, in which 20 children and 6 adults were killed by 20-year-old Adam Lanza, as a possible reason for Congress to step in and take legislative action.

Feinstein said, “If Sandy Hook doesn’t do it, if the knowledge of these video games this young man played doesn’t, then maybe we have to proceed, but that is in the future.”

The issue about gun violence and whether or not violent video games can be a cause has been a hot issue ever since the shooting happened in December, but what do you think about it? Is there anything the games industry can do to lessen the perception that its products cause violence? Is there anything the industry even should do? Let us know your thoughts!
