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."
