Arcade video shooting games pulled after massacres
BOSTON - A national movie theater chain has removed a video shooting game from a lobby after a moviegoer complained in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
National Amusements is based in Norwood, Mass. It removed the game from a complex in Yonkers, N.Y. A company executive said Friday the chain plans to review whether more games should be removed.
Massachusetts transportation officials pulled nine arcade games from four rest areas after a complaint from a family who saw a teenager firing a lifelike toy machine gun on an arcade game in a rest stop 10 days after the Newtown shooting.
Tracey Hyams says she knows violent video games are not the singular cause of mass shootings, but says they have no place in state-owned highway rest stops.
