US President Donald Trump will meet representatives from the video game industry next week, said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee. The announcement came after a shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead.

That statement is the answer to the question posed by the Associated Press about why the president can not force the regulators to follow his will on the rules of weapons.

"I think this is not about 'coercion to follow his will,'" Sanders said. "It's about a discussion about the part of a regulation that can be set in the future.Yesterday is certainly an important part of it."

Sanders refers to a meeting between the regulator and President Trump. During the meeting, one of the things the president said was that he wanted to take weapons from people who had a tendency to commit acts of violence rather than follow court procedures.

It is still unknown whether the game does have a role in the shootings that occurred in Parkland. The shooter was a 19-year-old teenager who reportedly sounded a fire alarm before firing on his classmates with a rifle.

However, the president continues to blame the game for many games that show violence, glorifying murder.

Interestingly, the Entertainment Software Association mentions that they or their members consisting of most of the leading game developers and publishers do not get invitations from the government.

"ESA and our member companies have not received an invitation to meet with President Trump," they said in an official statement.

ESA calls itself a trade association dedicated to serving the needs of companies that release console and computer games.

One of his tasks is to lobby the US government to help its members, such as Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Activision, Blizzard, Eletronic Arts, Square Enix, Ubisoft and other leading game companies.
