As lawmakers debate strengthening gun laws in this country Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said Wednesday that we're ignoring a major part of the problem - violent video games.
"There are too many video games that celebrate the mass killing of innocent people – games that despite attempts at industry self-regulation find their way into the hands of children," Grassley said.
That position mirrors the NRA's. According to Open Secrets, The NRA has donated more than $28,000 to the Senator since 1992.
Now we invited Senator Grassley to appear on OutFront, but so far he's declined. There's the saying that guns don't kill people, but do video games?
Senator Grassley implies they make kids more violent – but does that add up?
