Naming games like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse...
National Rifle Association vice president said violent video games are partially to blame for last week's deadly shooting in Connecticut.
That's right, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has said violent video games are partially to blame for the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
NRA vice president Wayne LaPierre condemned "vicious, violent video games like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse", and said VG's in general are a "shadow Industry" that "sows violence against its own people".
However, he also pointed the finger at the film and music industries...
LaPierre argued that media conglomerates, like the ones responsible for the games, music, and films listed above, are caught up in a "race to the bottom," and in fact compete with each other to "shock, violate, and offend every standard of civilized society."
