Patrick Asks “Active Shooter” Game Distributor to Stop Release of Game



 

“Outside of your personal financial gain, no good can come of this game. I am counting on you to do the right thing.”

 

HOUSTON – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick sent a letter today to the president of the Valve Software Corporation asking them to stop their plans to distribute a game called “Active Shooter,” which simulates a school shooting:

“We are still burying those who were lost in Santa Fe. As the lieutenant governor of Texas, I am personally asking you to stop the release of this game and never bring it to the market. I am appealing to you on behalf of the school shooting victims and students and families across Texas and the nation. Outside of your personal financial gain, no good can come from this game. I am counting on you to do the right thing.”
