EU Says It's Counting on Exclusion From Trump Metal Tariffs

EU Says It's Counting on Exclusion From Trump Metal Tariffs

When White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders first announced a planned meeting with game industry representatives last week, it was before anyone from the industry had received an invite to it.

US President Donald Trump is to meet video games company representatives on Thursday to discuss violent content. "This meeting will be the first of many with industry leaders to discuss this important issue".

Following an outcry over violent games such as 1992's "Mortal Kombat", the Entertainment Software Ratings Board was established in 1994 by the Entertainment Software Association to give each game a rating based on five categories ranging from "E" for "Everyone" to "Adults Only" for those 18 and older.

Strauss Zelnick, chief executive of "Grand Theft Auto" publisher Rockstar Games, was also present as well as Robert Altman, chief executive of ZeniMax Media which owns the Doom, Fallout, and Wolfenstein franchises.

There's a lot of bloody stuff out there, whether in games, movies, comics, or on TV.

The Electronic Software Association (ESA), which represents the games industry in the U.S., said it would be attending.

"Video games are plainly not the issue: entertainment is distributed and consumed globally, but the US has an exponentially higher level of gun violence than any other nation", said Dan Hewitt, a spokesman for lobby group the Entertainment Software Association, earlier.

The 88-second video depicts numerous violent deaths including beheadings, clubbings, and stabbings, as well as people's heads being shot off and a mass shooting with automatic weapons.

"Unproven and emotionally driven gun control legislation is a common and simplistic response to gun-related tragedies, but such lawmaking usually fails to address the underlying problem", she wrote in a 2013 Politico op-ed.

"As a video game violence researcher and someone who has done scholarship on mass homicides, let me state very emphatically: There is no good evidence that video games or other media contributes, even in a small way, to mass homicides or any other violence among youth", he wrote.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), and Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) will also attend the meeting, according to the White House statement.

The White House meeting on Thursday isn't likely to change that, he told TechNewsWorld.

The Trump administration has also attacked Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's decision to warn about impending ICE raids in statements by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and by the president himself, who called it "a disgrace".

"I mean seriously a globalist, there's no question", Trump said. Talking about his younger son at a recent meeting, Trump said, "I look at some of the things he's watching, and I say, how is that possible?" "During the same period of time, video games have steadily increased in popularity and use, exactly the opposite of what one would expect if there were a causal link". The whole conversation was centered on whether video games desensitize to violence.

Instead of putting the focus on the real issue and that is assault rifles like the ar-15 that was used to gun down 17 unarmed kids and teachers, Trump instead set hits un-tanned eyes on the video game industry.
