President Trump raised concerns about the graphic depiction of violence in video games at a White House meeting with members of the industry and some of their most vocal critics. Searching for ways to respond to last month's Florida high school shootings. Trump has questioned the impact of video games, although decades of research have failed to find a link between gun violence and graphic depictions of violence in virtual reality.  The White House put out a statement after the meeting saying Trump "acknowledged some studies have indicated there's a correlation between video game violence and real violence." The statement included a link to a YOU TUBE video with clips of video game violence. While some studies have shown a connection between gaming and emotional arousal, there's no hard evidence the heightened emotional state leads to physical violence. Listen, I was raised watching the Three Stooges and Bugs Bunny and I never wanted to drag a saw over my friend's head or flatten his head with a frying pan.
