Cryan Encourages Gamers to Join One Day Cease Fire, Put Down Violent Video Games in Honor of Newtown Victims

(UNION) – As the country continues to mourn the lives tragically lost in Newtown, CT, Assemblyman Joseph Cryan (D-Union) on Friday asked video game enthusiasts to join the national Day Of Cease Fire For Online Shooters and put their controllers down in honor of the victims.

“Whether or not you believe that violent video games influence violent behavior, I think we can all agree that cutting down on violent imagery in light of this terrible tragedy is not only appropriate; it is necessary,” said Cryan. “There are no words to describe what transpired in Newtown. As we try to cope with the losses and understand the motives, let’s show the families affected that we stand with them against the senseless violence that took their loved ones. I encourage all video gamers to take a break from the video games today and pay respect to the victims by participating in the cease fire.”

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
