Trump Calls Out Video Games

President Trump has joined those scapegoating video games and other media as causes for gun violence in the wake of the U.S.'s latest horrific school shooting. Variety quotes the President's comments, which suggest he feels the rating system for movies does not adequately account for violence and that he may not be aware there is already a rating system for video games.

“I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts,” he said at a meeting on school safety. “And then you go the further step, and that’s the movies.”

“You see these movies, they’re so violent and yet, a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn’t involved,” he went on. “Killing is involved, and maybe they have to put a rating system for that.”

The issue is assault guns outside of military use.

Gun control has never been the issue. Gun control is a frame paid for by the NRA.

The simple solution to the problem of mass killings involving assault guns is the same we have for cars.

Everyone has the right to buy a Ferrari but, the are required by law to also get insurance that compensates for the potential harm reckless use of the item can cause to society.

Assault gun insurance should be required. The more powerful the assault weapon, the higher the premium.

The fat cats of the insurance industry would get a big win, while nut jobs that can't deal with reality unless they own and carry an assault gun will have to be able to also afford some pretty expensive assualt gun insurance. At least when one of them goes off the rails, the victims families are compensated from the insurance.

Everybody wins, the nut boys are free to still buy assault guns, the insurance companies rake in more dough, the victims families get some compensation, and mass killers are reduced in number to only the very rich.
