We're sure you've heard this false claim before--that video games are linked to gun violence. But how did video games become scapegoats for gun violence? To help hosts Kelly and JJ navigate these confusing waters, they're joined by Stephen Machuga (Founder and CEO of the nonprofit StackUp.Org, which supports the mental health of military and veteran communities through the power of gaming), and TJ Arch, the Creative Director at Juniper Park/TBWA, who helped create the computer game “League of Legislators.”
