Gamers pledge to honor the victims of Newtown by putting down their virtual guns for a day.
Antwand Pearman, CEO of Gamer Fit Nation, has told HLN’s Evening Express that he is calling for a day of ‘cease fire’, where all gamers are to put down the controller to honor the victims of the Newtown massacre.
This call for action has become an online movement with over 3,000 people pledging on the ‘Day of Cease Fire for Online Shooter’ Facebook event not to play online shooter games on Friday, December, 21.
Mr. Pearman told HLN’s Evening Express,
He doesn’t believe video games cause violence but thinks the community should put down their virtual guns in a moment of silence.
‘It’s not about politics, it’s about a sense of us being human.’
