FTRF helps sponsor new Media Coalition report on video games & gun violence

Posted By Jonathan M. Kelley, Wednesday, June 26, 2013
The Media Coalition this week released a study on gun violence and new media, including video games.  "Only a Game: Why Censoring New Media Won't Stop Gun Violence" was commissioned in the wake of the 2012 Newtown massacre, as a response to the heavily promoted idea that violent video games cause gun violence.  It's conclusion: "Conclusion: A majority of Americans may believe that fictional violence leads to violence in real life. But common sense and objective research does not show it."
FTRF provided a grant to help fund this project.  We strongly encourage you to read it.  Any feedback you have is greatly appreciated!
