"We must have a meaningful conversation about mental health issues and other possible cultural and societal contributors to violent behavior, such as violence in video games", she wrote.

On March 8th, President Donald Trump met with a bunch of video game experts such as Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick (parent company of Grand Theft Auto developer, Rockstar Games), Robert Altman, chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media, and Mike Gallagher, president and CEO of the Entertainment Software Association amongst other high profile industry executives.

Trump has made the issue personal, taking the unusual step of mentioning his concern for his 11-year-old son, Barron.

"He was clearly concerned about some of this imagery that you're seeing in these ultra-violent video games that are being watched by children", Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center and a frequent critic of video game violence, said in an interview with The Hill. He was also a keen video game player.

The Entertainment Software Association expressed appreciation of President Trump's receptive and comprehensive approach to the subject.

The Washington Post says a spokesperson for Representative Hartzler confirmed her plan to attend, and a White House spokesperson told the paper that there may well be more meetings to come.

David Warner admits that his response was a bit emotional, but says that he will always defend his family and his teammates. Pat Cummins (2/55) was the pick of the Australian attack while Mitchell Marsh (2/26) filled a vital role as fourth seamer.

The meeting could become a contentious affair - and possibly a venue for Trump to slam video game executives for, in his view, increasing violent tendencies in young people.

The industry contends that decades of research have failed to show a direct link between gun violence in real life and violence in video games, TV and movies.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders would not elaborate on what the president hoped to accomplish with Thursday's meeting with video game leaders, except to say that it is meant to be part of ongoing discussions the president is having as he explores specific policy solutions. The meeting aforementioned is said to have begun with a showing of the YouTube video, after which the President asked the group "This is violent, isn't it?".

That drew a swift response from Parents Television Council Program Director Melissa Henson in the meeting who said that the stats that they are providing are just not true. Following that shooting the National Rifle Association singled out video games as the true danger to society. He noted in a statement that there was "no evidence" tying video games to the Florida shooting, but said he was interested "in making sure parents are aware of the resources available to them to monitor and control the entertainment their children are exposed to". For example, a statement by Professor of Psychology Patrick M. Markey points at that multiple studies have shown a shooter is three times less likely to have played violent video games.

A later effort by California officials to ban sales of violent video games to children was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 on the grounds that, like books and films, games are protected by constitutional rights to free speech.

Past presidents - including Barack Obama - also suggested there could be a link between violent video games and violence in young people. Rich Blumenthal (D-Conn.) rounded out the chorus of skeptical senators, telling the Post that "focusing entirely on video games distracts from the substantive debate we should be having about how to take guns out of the hands of unsafe people". Our current reality is scarier than anything in games.
