Petition for the removal of violent video games

We, as concerned citizens and parents, urge Beaucatcher Cinemas, Carmike Theatres, Chuck-E-Cheese, Fun Depot, Tarwheel

Sponsor

This petition was started due to concern about increasing levels of violence in our communities and our media. Being a mother and an aunt, I am deeply upset by the marketing of war toys to our children and the resulting increase in aggression and desensitization to violence. It is my desire to help guide our children into wise and kind world citizens.

    7 years ago Comments: Violent video games absolutely teach children and adults to be numb to the reality of violent action, promoting aggression and a culture of warfare. Violent gaming subverts interactive media which can be a valuable teaching medium, especially when used in non-violent cooperative gaming environments or as an intuitive, multiple intelligence approach to learning.
