Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has rooted out what he believes to be the cause of America’s mass shootings: zombie television.
“Seriously, what’s the most important topic that seems to be in every cable television network for example? Television shows are all about what? Zombies,” Bevin said in an interview radio host Leland Conway.
Bevin explained that mass shootings are caused by deep cultural problems, specifically a society that watches violence daily.
“These are drips, drips, drips on the stones of the psyches of young generations that are growing up in a society that increasingly said this is normal and okay,” he added. “And eventually, some of those young minds are not going to be able to handle it.”
Bevin spent a large portion of the interview discussing what the root of violence is and what the future of gun rights might be now the the Democrats control the House.
This is not the first time that Bevin has participated in the discussion about mass violence. He took part in a roundtable discussion about gun violence, the cause of which are the ways society infects the minds of children.
Bevin said that violent television and video games are desensitizing young people and that their cellphones have made them susceptible to self-harm. He added that young people are medicated with psychotropic, mind-altering drugs.
“And then we’re shocked, for reasons that are beyond me, that children act out this way. And yes, it’s only a few. But my gracious, it only takes a few,” he said during the roundtable discussion.
