Top House Republican Blames Video Games for Mass Shootings

The seemingly endless flood of bad news can make a few short years feel like an eternity ago and it doesn't help when top politicians start trotting out '90s talking points in response to this weekend's tragedies. But that's just what House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is doing. The highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives believes violent video games may be a root cause of the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

GOP House minority leader Kevin McCarthy follows up Dan Patrick on Fox News to say the influence of video games are represented in photos of the shootings, which is truly awful


McCarthy wasn't content to believe the El Paso shooter's stated motive of attacking Hispanics to protest what he viewed as their gradual takeover of the United States. Instead, he opted to check on the video games again. It's worth noting that researchers have repeatedly found that there is no link between video games and real-world violence, and that the top Republican in the country, President Donald Trump, began his campaign for president with an explicitly racist appeal that warned his supporters of a supposed wave of criminals coming to the United States from Mexico.
