Representative Duncan Hunter, a Republican from California, shared his view on the topic of violence and video games in an op-ed on Politico, nothing that they are "often, but wrongly, identified as a catalyst for violence."

He continues, "Targeting video games as the problem is nothing more than a distraction from the broader challenges presented by improper parenting and far more obvious triggers of violence."

Hunter cites the 2011 Supreme Court ruling that dismissed any direct link between video games and real-life violence as well as the fact that murder and crime rates in the US are lower now than they were before the introduction video games. He urges us all to look for solutions in the real world to this real problem.
