Newtown Shooting

Floor Speech

Mr. WOLF. Mr. Speaker, I recently read an article by Maureen Downey of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution sharing the thoughts of Mr. Frederick Assaf, headmaster at Pace Academy, an independent K-12 school in Atlanta, Georgia.

As Congress and the Obama administration continue to address mass violence, I found merit in Assaf's concerns about the desensitizing impacts of violent media, such as video games and Hollywood films. I believe these graphic images are far too easily accessed by our children and lack any notion of real-life consequences to violent death. I submit for the RECORD Mr. Assaf's thoughtful comments.[From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jan. 2, 2013]
