Video games are back in the spotlight for all of the wrong reasons. With recent tragedies on everyone’s minds, some people are looking for a cause and culprit other than the shooter. Media, including video games, are instead being blamed.
Re: Policy Considerations post-Newtown, CT School Shooting
Dear Mr. Vice President,
In the wake of the Newtown, CT school shooting, I am writing to you on behalf of the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) to weigh in on our members’ perspective regarding media consumption. We’re asking you to support the public’s constitutional right to access and buy games, and to not blame media, including video games, for the recent tragedy that has befallen our nation.
I’d like to begin by gratefully thanking all of the people, organizations and partners, who have shared their heart-felt thoughts and concerns about the well-being of ECA staff, family and friends given the proximity of our office in Wilton to Newtown. I am relieved to report that none of us, or our immediate families, suffered any losses of life. Unfortunately, many of us had friends and their families who did.
