"We're not saying the use of video games causes people to become murderers, but there's evidence that it causes increases in aggressiveness, fear, anxiety and desensitization about actions of violence," said Susan Saucier, director of community services.
Southington SOS said it's fully aware of more complex policy issues connected to America's rash of mass shootings, such as tighter gun control and better mental health care. But organizers said that if getting violent video games out of the hands of some youngsters can help reduce the culture of violence, then it's a good move.
"If we have one game returned, we'll be applauding," schools Superintendent Joseph Erardi said. "But we think we'll have more than one."
Southington SOS will accept games from other communities, and is leaving it up to families to decide which games — or even CDs or DVDs — are too violent to keep owning."
