Violent games can enable would-be mass murderers, say CA Senator
Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein says violent games can serve as "simulators" for would-be killers.
Democratic California Senator Dianne Feinstein has again spoken out against violent video games. Today on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Feinstein said these games can be enablers for would-be mass murderers.
"I think the really violent video game becomes a kind of simulator to practice on. And it enables the individual to become much more familiar with that depiction of death and blood," Feinstein said, referencing the exaggerated way in which some games depict violence and death.
"Of course it's not the way it is in real life," she added.
During an event last week, Feinstein said violent games play a "very negative role for young people." She said if the game industry continues to make games that glorify guns, Congress may intervene.
Feinstein's recent comments follow December's schoolhouse massacre in Connecticut where a 20-year-old killed 20 children and six adults being taking his own life.
The shooter was reportedly a "deranged gamer."
