Vice president Joe Biden does not mention video games in the list of measures for gun control that he has forwarded to the office of the President of the United States.

A report from Politico says that after the series of meetings he held over the weekend, the task force has created a list of 19 potential executive actions and none of them is linked to the video games industry.

The potential measures include a ban on high-capacity magazines and more background checks for those who try to get access to a weapon.

After the December Sandy Hook killings, a number of commentators suggested that video games could have played a part, after the shooter was reported to have played Dynasty Warriors and Call of Duty.

A United States congressman also sought to introduce a bill to ask the National Academy of Sciences to study the effects of violent video games, but the initiative died on the floor of the Senate.
