They not stopping the sale of video games or movies. They're just not displaying them like they used to or showing them in store.

Weve taken this action out of respect for the incidents of the past week, and it does not reflect a long-term change in our video game assortment, a company spokesperson told The Verge. We are focused on assisting our associates and their families, as well as supporting the community, as we continue a thoughtful and thorough review of our policies.

One thing they are doing is to
pping the demo of some games and movies that have gun shots in them. A Walmart was shot up last week and another had an armed man in body armor walk through the store. It seems like common sense for Walmart to do this.

Walmart denies report that its taking violent video games off shelves

The movie I saw was called "Peppermint" and it featured Jennifer Garner as a mom that lost her husband and child to cartel violence. The ruthless gang was made up of very stereotypical Mexicans and she mowed through them with guns blazing in a blood splattered tempest of vigilante justice with close up views of the bad guys being shot in the head and face.

Peppermint gave John Wick a run for his body count tally..


I wonder if Walmart in the is feel good motion will also remove violent DVD's ?

They make them because people watch them. If people didn't watch them, there would be no point in making them.

Violent video games are a newer phenomenon within the last 30 years, and now we are having a lot more mass shootings.

Love or hate guns, this is not a gun problem as there has always been access to them.
Instead it is a cultural, morals, and parenting problem. Allowing kids to be babysat by watching violent TV and play gratuitously violent video games contributes to our moral decay.
Also not getting kids and adults with mental illness treatment and having them flagged as people who should be prohibited (at least until receiving treatment and getting better) from buying guns should be in place.

Actually I think its not so much the fault of the video game itself its the fact that the isolation of the children/young adults playing the games without interaction with their peers is creating a whole new problem in society. Not being able to cope with the real world for a small number of young adults that carries over to bad behavior. Be it drugs to try to cope with the real world or even mass shooting to escape.

I always laugh when people blame video games when other countries are WAY more into violent video games, yet are some of the safest countries on the planet in terms of violent crime.

Anyway, the US is weird with how standard television happily depicts constant violence (sometimes stomach-churningly gruesome), but if you show a nipple, oh my! Break out the smelling salts!

I don't feel safe shopping in a Walmart anymore. I was talking with several people I work with and they all said they looked around for places to hide or exit while shopping in case they needed to.

Not clear on whether they are only removing signs depicting violent imagery, or actual violent video games.

Edit: apparently they still sell everything they sold before, it's just that they are not putting up displays of violent video games or playing violent movies/shows on their TVs.
Cars kill MORE then guns, should all dealers pull them after a car death?

We would NEVER be able to a car if they did.

And some countries have very small numbers of "video games", yet high amounts of actual violence.
