US gun debate: Video game industry defends itself

Published: 01.12.13, 16:04 / Israel News

The video game industry, blamed by some for fostering a culture of violence, defended its practices at a White House meeting exploring how to prevent horrific shootings like the recent Connecticut elementary school massacre.

 

Vice President Joe Biden, wrapping up three days of wide-ranging talks on gun violence prevention Friday, said the meeting was an effort to understand whether the U.S. was undergoing a "coarsening of our culture." The gaming industry says that violent crime, particularly among the young, has fallen since the early 1990s while video games have increased in popularity.  (AP)
