    If video games were to blame there’d be a LOT more shootings. Guns are illegal here in the UK and we don’t have mass shootings, I might be crazy but by those facts it seems like guns and crazy people might be the problem

  3. Rogan O'Reilly on June 12, 2022 at 7:42 am

    Ted Cruz is a national embarrassment, just like Laura Ingraham for blaming marijuana. Pathetic.

  4. K on June 12, 2022 at 7:43 am

    lets say video games and all the things he stated are the cause of this. what do they plan to do about all these things then? cause they love to blame shit and do absoloutly nothing about it.

    It’s deff not the video games big bro, you could then just as easily say it’s the movies, bc it looks so real and they have gotten so violent, it’s the anime that is readily available on Netflix that is brutally violent. We should be trying to figure out why our youth wants to die or kill others. Addressing the adderall, Prozac, and shitty other drugs we experiment on with our kids. Stop thinking about banning forms of art, & fictional competitive games. For a start we could stop publicizing the killers face and names. & Let’s be honest the American Military Industrial Complex🇺🇸 is one of the biggest gun sellers and mass killers on the planet. Maybe this is the result. As above so below.

    Tell me you dont play video games without telling me you dont play video games….

    The main problem and also the main solution is school funding…almost every single school shooter was a student. And almsot every single one had trouble at home or trouble school (bullying, bad grades etc)…..
    Since the 2000s this country has slowly cut public school funding. Causing not only less after school programs, but also bigger student to teachers ratios lack of equipment, harder school access( if you live in a certain district you cannot go to another district and your parents can be fined and arrested for it just for wanting to send you to a certain school)….these are all the effects of budget cuts for schools but when a school is by far an away the place most of our youth will spend the majority of their development ages 6-18, and these schools cannot provide the proper attention, resources etc to give kids the safest, fun, accepting, and open place possible.
    Now compound that with say a hard home life, maybe parents are struggling to make ends meet cause they cannot get a certain job because of school.hours after school programs can help with that….many kids akip school constantly cause they dont dee the value in it cause teachers simply cannot give children the true attention they need, the become discouraged and turn to yhe streets to find a "future"….theres alot that goes into it but i can 100%say that i feel that making the public school system lightyears above anything anyone else in the world can offer would have major positive changes in our culture

    It’s called better gun laws The end 😧😒

  8. Checkher Koolchick on June 12, 2022 at 7:48 am

    Of course the NRA would place blame elsewhere besides gun control and, stringent rules. Many factors lead to the horrible tragedies, other than video games always taking blame. The gun power for one, does the general public really need access to AR’s and such power over, just a certain caliber hand gun. Parenting, bullying, mental illness, and, other reasons. The media Abets ‘Fame-Seeking’ Mass Shooters and having a high possibility of being on Dateline or even YouTube. We have access in Canada with guns, certain license per calibrate of guns and, cannot carry on hip for easy access. It makes a big difference with accessibility. Good luck America with gaining control now, with all the guns already out there!

  9. Rogan O'Reilly on June 12, 2022 at 7:49 am

    It’s also crazy to me children being murdered in classrooms is considered a political issue. We have some serious fucking work to do as a nation and as a people.

  10. CHEWSTER on June 12, 2022 at 7:50 am

    Definitely not video game related, just saying obviously it’s all psychological (Depression) if anything you gotta blame rap music and movies or TV shows not just online gaming SMH

  11. RONINWARRIOR1776 on June 12, 2022 at 7:51 am

    Video games are not the main issue. This isn’t a Democrat/Republican issue. It’s a damn mental health issue!!!

  12. D Young on June 12, 2022 at 7:52 am

    Videogames do not cause, promote or increase this.

  13. Bartolomeo Cannibal on June 12, 2022 at 7:54 am

    on our side we cant even afford gpu xD to play games


    1st no pc to play games
    2nd no money they renting pc
    3rd we cant buy a gun rather we want to buy a pc
    4th to much Christian xD
    5th asian flippers is more painfull and old lady rumor makers are more toxic than twitter

  14. Cline on June 12, 2022 at 7:54 am

    The issue is how the generation Ted Cruz comes from has ruined any idea of 18-25 year olds being able to make it in this world financially and it has driven them to the brink mentally. They all feel isolated and poor.

  15. Kyle Little on June 12, 2022 at 7:57 am

    Video games can make people want to go shoot tons of folks. I’m not saying video games make everyone feel that way but it does make some people flip. I mean just about every add on social media is about violent video games

  16. Squad wipes™ on June 12, 2022 at 8:04 am

    Oh but the Purge movies had no affect on the human psyche…

  17. CallMeToke on June 12, 2022 at 8:06 am

    I’ve played video games everyday and own 5 guns never shot anyone my own schizophrenic brother who called me a nerd for years legally owned a gun shot a dudes ass cheek off…. yeah it’s video games and not a mental health issue

  18. Marco Gallo on June 12, 2022 at 8:06 am

    Video games are NOT THE PROBLEM, i live in Canada and not once have i ever had the thought of buying a rifle and shooting people. Stricter gun laws and mental health checks need to be extremely more enforced. And oh that “second amendment” that the US has as well needs a major change. That law is years upon years outdated.

  19. Austin Stover on June 12, 2022 at 8:07 am

    Video games don’t give people guns

  20. Arya Kenandi on June 12, 2022 at 8:07 am

    The only difference between the whole world and the US is only this: CIVILLIAN DO NOT CARRY/OWN A F’N AR ANYWHERE BECAUSE AN AR IS NOT A DEFENSIVE WEAPON. Period. It is called an "assault" rifle for a reason.

  21. Mighty_Genius on June 12, 2022 at 8:09 am

    Theres a gun problem when you have to be age 21 to buy a handgun but age 18 to by an Assault rifle the legal system needs to be accountable not video games. Not to only mention a huge portion of the black community is fatherless and not attending church yet no headlines of mass school shooters there. So theres obviously a different agenda being pushed do I know, not at all but hopefully the good people that can make a difference can wake up

  22. Salty Droog on June 12, 2022 at 8:10 am

    Nothing has to change. A very small number of people are killed in school shootings. It’s a very sensational, very heartbreaking but very rare thing. if you don’t like the freedoms we have here in America what should change is where you live.

  23. Grandmaster Exorcist "h8_mE" on June 12, 2022 at 8:14 am

    Ah shit, here we go again.

  24. TyRecks on June 12, 2022 at 8:14 am

    GOVERMENT wants to take away pewpews because mental health isnt in there Vocabulary. Declining mental health and countries wellbeing as a whole should be looked at. If we are going to blame someone blame our lazy politicians who get paid what I get financially in 10 years in 1 year. Its wild to me. And thanks for speaking on this Jake. It SHOULD be brought up.

  25. FatalFord on June 12, 2022 at 8:15 am

    So……..dumb shit?

  26. Solar Allix on June 12, 2022 at 8:15 am

    Shooting existed first, then Games that has guns came

  27. ahmad rusydi on June 12, 2022 at 8:16 am

    well what u gonna do? when ur country politics n related department(aka NRA in this case) being controlled by the lobbyist, this clown statement will be said. when they say ‘america first’, they only mean ‘america money first’. RIP normie whos living in this country.

  28. J on June 12, 2022 at 8:16 am

    I am a former Republican as of 2017, I registered independent but lean left. With this said its time for politicians to stop taking money from THE NRA and Gun lobbyists and protect the "American" voter. I am a gun owner, I support the 2nd amendment but I am all for gun reform. Republicans want to blame everyone but the problem when it comes to the gun issues. They take millions each year from the NRA. I know this I work in cable news, I am also a veteran. I have seen it with my own eyes. Video games are used worldwide, yet America is the only country With mass killings. Think about that. Democrats have put legislation forward for more money into medicaid services for mental health issues the Republicans voted no on that bill. So please stop believing all this nonsense you hear. The Republican party is just going to keep killing our children unless they decide to do some major changes to gun protections. Btw the 2nd amendment doesn’t say which gun you can have. People have manipulated this amendment for years and it needs to stop.

  29. Bogan Bob on June 12, 2022 at 8:16 am

    So video games are responsible but mass media isn’t?

  30. ichatterbot on June 12, 2022 at 8:17 am

    Imagine blaming video games for mass shootings.

  31. Dierka Gaming on June 12, 2022 at 8:18 am

    I love the arguement that videogames cause violence, because it’s usually done by people who are terrible parents who’s children could do no wrong. They refuse to believe that they have any accountability in the issue. Ridiculous.

  32. Chris Ogden on June 12, 2022 at 8:19 am

    Hello America… We have the same games over here in the UK, weird that we don’t have anything like as many "mass" shootings .. wonder what the difference might be…

    I’ll never understand how a country can say your not adult enough to drink, or vote untill you’re 21, but wanna buy a gun ? No problem…

    I’m sorry, much love to you all, but the rest of the world looks at you and we just shake our heads…

  33. Derized on June 12, 2022 at 8:19 am

    But movies and tv shows aren’t even on these guy’s radar… There is no such thing as a "realistic" videogame, but movies and tv shows? Legitimately glorify gore and violence with a muuuuch more realistic nature. They are a bunch of clowns trying to push the agenda of banning videogames for kids like china did.

  34. Chaotic on June 12, 2022 at 8:20 am

    3:13 “we know the individual was in to cyber gaming”


  35. Raggamuffinz on June 12, 2022 at 8:21 am

    Canadian here – we have access to the same games the US does and don’t have this issue near as bad. Yes, gun violence happens here but not nearly at the same scale. Canadians are strapped up from the waist down, we have a lot of guns per capita up here so we have the means to terrorize but we just don’t as frequently. There is no evidence anywhere that video games are the problem and anyone who says that’s the case is a disingenuous clown who is trying to divert attention.

  36. Gary on June 12, 2022 at 8:21 am

    Gun laws in the USA 🇺🇸 are way to accessible. That’s the difference between the USA and the other countries in the world.

  37. billebats on June 12, 2022 at 8:22 am

    Ohhh that’s why the Vikings were so violent and raided countless towns. Video Games. 🥴

  38. Half Death on June 12, 2022 at 8:22 am


  39. clint351mx on June 12, 2022 at 8:23 am

    Yeah…. bad parents….not there, dont care or dont try and fix thier fucked up kids. all it comes down to. Dont be scared to talk to your kids…..about anything. Life is fucked, make sure they are aware of that…..

  40. Mystic_Fandog on June 12, 2022 at 8:24 am

    Not video games fault I blame bad peranting

  41. Brandon Scales on June 12, 2022 at 8:24 am

    I agree jake it’s just redirecting the issue to what the government has in the past video games and chat rooms.

  42. Drew Herren on June 12, 2022 at 8:24 am

    These same News outlets will push murder all day for views, even to the point of basically glorifying killers and giving them "fun" little nick names. Yet a video game is what desensitizes people. Can you imagine being such a low life p.o.s. that you can stand at a gun convention where people can buy weapons with no background checks days after a mass shooting and say the problem is video games. These Politicians and the police that responded like cowards to the gunman should be imprisoned instead of petty criminals that are desperate, marginalized people.

  43. Athena©13 on June 12, 2022 at 8:24 am

    Funny how these games are played all over the world, but the mass shootings are only taking place in the US. Somehow video games are the problem😐

  44. Carlos Alberto Fabian Gomez on June 12, 2022 at 8:28 am

    Republicans and their lame excuses, for problems they’ve caused

  45. CoachRuffy on June 12, 2022 at 8:29 am

    Anything to deflect gun culture and the NRA are part of the problem in the US of A — Merica….the rest of the world watches and wonders WTF is going on there. — The second some one says Video Game or Cyber games we know they have no clue.

  46. Ivan Tuite on June 12, 2022 at 8:31 am

    Come on everyone knows mental health issues or anything related to something mentally is the problem as well as the lack of how political run their state and country politics should be blamed for everything both in our country and around the world

  47. George J on June 12, 2022 at 8:31 am

    this is what the us governemt does to cover up for their incompetence, blame in on something, in this case blaming it on video games lol

  48. the_real_beaker_ on June 12, 2022 at 8:32 am

    I like how that news anchor said that video games were making this problem worse, then asked the person he was interviewing "have you done any research to support this?" uhhhhhh shouldn’t you have done that before saying that it was the problem? haha

  49. AZZYZZYN on June 12, 2022 at 8:33 am

    Not a video game problem. Not a gun problem. It’s a people problem.
