NY man: Online shooter game players cease fire
Question of the Day
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York founder of a video game website says he believes tens of thousands of players of online shooter games are participating in a 24-hour cease-fire to show love and respect to last week's Connecticut school shooting victims.
Bronx resident Antwand Pearman says he's gotten mostly positive messages. The GamerFitNation founder says some player groups with thousands of members have told him they're participating in the cease-fire.
A gunman killed 20 children and six adults at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school last week.
The 29-year-old Pearman has three children. He has a Facebook page and a Twitter account promoting the shooter game cease-fire, which started at noon Friday.
He says video games don't cause violence, as some critics have suggested. He says the cease-fire is meant to show gamers care.
