Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blames video games, advocates arming teachers after Santa Fe shooting – Houston Chronicle
First he blamed doors, then he blamed video games.
On Sunday, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick went on ABC’s “This Week” to advocate for arming teachers, condemn video games and decry a culture that has “devalued life.”
“We cannot sit back and say it’s the gun; it’s us as a nation,” he told host George Stephanopoulos. “But George, we take the guns out of society — if you or anyone else thinks that that makes us safer, then — then — then I’m sad to say that you’re mistaken.”
Two days earlier, a gunman massacred 10 students and teachers at a Galveston County high school, allegedly exchanging gunfire during a police standoff before he was arrested.
