Sunday Focus: Vido Game Violence = School Shootings?

From a NY Times story:
"In Japan, about 60 percent of the population played video games in 2016, according to NewZoo, a gaming market research company. But almost no one is killed by a gun in the country, which bans possessing, carrying, selling, or buying handguns or rifles.
There were only six gun deaths in Japan in 2014, compared with over 33,000 in the United States, according to GunPolicy.org, which tracks published reports on armed violence, firearm law and gun control."


President Trump argues that violent movies and video games contribute to the violence in school shootings.
