Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin (R) said on Tuesday that increased regulations are not the solution to mass shootings, adding that that America’s obsession with zombie television are partly to blame.
In an interview with conservative radio talk show host Leland Conway, Bevin said that the “culture of death” in America makes mass shooting more likely.
“It starts with everything from the kind of entertainment that we focus on,” he said. “What’s the most popular topic that seems to be in every cable television network… Television shows are all about, what? Zombies! I don’t get it… that’s what we are. We celebrate death.”
“When a culture is surrounded by, inundated by, rewards things that celebrate death, whether it is zombies in television shows, the number of abortions… there’s a thousand justifications for why we do this,” he continued. “Eventually some of those young minds are not going to be able to handle it, and this is what we’re hearing.”
In the ongoing discussion surrounding mass shootings in which people attempt to justify loose regulations that allow pretty much anyone to get a gun in their hands, another person in power is claiming that guns aren’t the reason why people are being killed by guns.
Nope, it can’t be the guns. Leave gun laws alone. It’s actually zombie shows. *wipes hands clean* welp, problem solved. Cancel The Walking Dead and no one will walk into a church and open fire anymore.
Thank you, Matt Bevin, you genius.
Also, fuck this guy for bringing abortions into this for no reason.
‘People celebrate death, you know, like abortions’. Conservatives reallyyy think women are throwing abortion parties and exchanging gifts like they’re excited about the emotionally and physically destructive move they’re making.
Matt Bevin is an elected official who seems to have gotten his education from a 2002 Geocities conspiracy page and hasn’t read any new information since then. Please stop electing people who aren’t smarter than you.
Guns don’t kill people, zombies do.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Matt Bevin should be forced to resign until he actually reads literally anything. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
