From Pixels to Bullets? Uvalde Families Sue Social Media and Games Over Shooting

Game Over? Uvalde Families Sue Social Media and Video Game Giants After School Shooting


In a shocking twist, families devastated by the Uvalde school shooting are suing not just the gun maker, but also social media giant Meta (owner of Instagram) and video game company Activision!


They claim these companies helped create a "playbook" for the gun industry to target young people with AR-15s. They say Activision's "Call of Duty" fuels a desire for these weapons, while Instagram lets gun sellers advertise despite flimsy rules.


Both companies deny any connection to real-world violence, but the families argue they're "chewing up alienated teens and spitting out mass shooters." This lawsuit reignites the debate: can video games and social media influence violence?


Is this a game changer, or just another sad chapter in the gun violence debate?
