We've already recently covered this topic, but honestly the memes have been so good that we felt like we had to bring you even more of them.

We certainly don't want to get too deep into the politics of exactly what causes gun violence in America in light of recent tragedies, but one thing seems to be certain here: both gamers and non-gamers alike on both sides of the political spectrum are coming together to reject the idea that video games are what cause it.

So here are 17 brand new, freshly baked memes that roast the (lack of) logic that video games are the violent culprit!

XXXTentacion's Murder Met With Controversy, Conspiracy Theories & Very Dark Memes

Florida hip-hop artist XXXTentacion was shot dead Monday in what officials believe to have been an armed robbery. Reception to his death has been mixed - with many artists coming out on Twitter to lament his wasted potential. The death was also met with as much controversy as he received during his life. 

XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, spent much of his career in jail for various felonies, and most upsettingly - severely assaulting his pregnant girlfriend. Memers do not take kindly to injustices such as this. While redditors generally avoid meme-ing the dead, XXXTentacion's sinister side makes memers feel this is an exception. And the memes are kinda brutal. Even more unsettling? The bizarre conspiracy theories that Jahseh is still alive. It seems fans have been spreading an old clip of the artist claiming he is still alive, and it has caused a great amount of confusion.

A Georgia judge sentenced Kayla Dixon to 40 years in prison after she pled guilty to shooting a man over his Playstation 4. WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that Dixon gave her confession to the crime as part of a plea deal.

The horrific incident occured when Dixon and her boyfriend attempted to steal the Playstation 4 after 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz posted a listing for the console on Craigslist. Zeitz resisted, and Dixon shot him.

“I would trade anything, almost anything, to bring Daniel back. But I know I can’t,” she said in a statement to press. “I know he had plans. I wish I could tell him I’m so, so sorry that this happened, but I can’t.”
