In 2011, the Supreme Court ruled against the state of California over its attempt to ban sales of video games to minors, saying that there was not enough evidence to show any connection between violent video games and aggression in young people.
Some have begun speaking out, saying that violent video games need to be considered as a possible contributor to these violent attacks.

In addition to calling out violence in movies and video games, Trump said that the Parkland shooting had led his administration to consider taking action on policy measures to directly address access to guns. The M rating "may contain intense violence" while the AO rating is for games that "may include prolonged scenes of intense violence".
