Video games linked to violence, Trump tells industry

Mexico should replicate U.S. President Donald Trump's 25 percent steel tariffs with its own customs duties on the metal to avoid being used as staging point for third countries to export to the United States, the industry chamber said on Friday. The session was one of multiple meetings about gun violence and school safety that the Trump administration has held following the February 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people were killed. Trump has said he would consider a wide range of policy options, but has not yet clarified his positions on how best to address gun violence.

Attendees at today's meeting included game industry officials - the administration invited Entertainment Software Association president Michael Gallagher, ESRB president Patricia Vance, and publisher executives such as Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick - as well as media critics and legislators.

The president's free-wheeling deliberations on gun violence during the past month have mainly taken place in full view of reporters.

Melissa Henson of the Parents Television Council said that yesterday's summit was "respectful but contentious", she told The Washington Post, and that her side of the debate emphasized that the "steady diet of media violence is having a corrosive effect on our culture".

"Video games are enjoyed around the world and numerous authorities and reputable scientific studies have found no connection between games and real-life violence", the ESA said in a statement.

"You're combating a multimillion-dollar industry".

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

'I look at some of the things he's watching, and I say, how is that possible?' he said last week. "I think that they know that kids are playing these games and [that] children do have ready access to violent video games". It is the first time the White House has admitted the President was involved in any way with Daniels.

The issue hearkens back to Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that video games were protected by the First Amendment and prohibited states from making it a crime to sell them to minors.

In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, met with industry leaders after the massacre at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school that left 26 dead. It's not like academic research disproving the correlation between video game violence and real violence was conducted as recently as January or anything.

Trump is considering support for a range of legislative options, including toughening up background checks for gun buyers.
