Not a scapegoat for the entire issue but it may be a factor, it effectively desensitises people from violence at an early age.
I imagine most people who are compos mentis recognize there is a gulf between shooting a group of pixels with another group of them to walking into a school/mall/etc. and shooting a load of innocents. After all, allcountries have video games but only America has a mass shooting every day of the week.

Now Trump is off to El Paso to try to twist the news agenda onto his pathetic version of reality.

He's a brave man to go though, so many guns in that area and so many people watching video games.

Does it? If anything I'd say it makes people less violent.If you are taking out your anger and aggression on video games then theoretically you'll be less violent in real life.Video games are just a diversion tactic anyway.He knows he can't blame guns so he's blamed everything but guns instead.It doesn't take a genius to see that the general public should not be allowed to buy ak-47's.There is just no need for it.
