When Cooper pointed out that video games are popular in Japan, a country with extremely low levels of violent crime, Biden jumped in. "That's my point... It's not in and of itself the reason we have this carnage on our streets."
The video game question was a small part of a wide-ranging interview on gun violence in which Biden proposed a gun buyback program and said directly, "We have two problems: the NRA and the gun manufacturers." Biden also took President Trump to task for "using the language of the kind of things that they [white nationalists] say... his rhetoric contributes to this notion, it almost legitimizes these people coming out from under the rocks. This is white nationalism. It's terrorism of a different sort, but it's still terrorism."
