Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Sunday said that gun control laws
were not the answer to mass shootings because hatchets, guns, cars and
video games all had a role in violent deaths in the United States.
"What I'm hearing is that people want to make certain that -- first
of all -- that we protect the Second Amendment and their Second
Amendment rights -- protect their freedom and not impede that,"
Blackburn told CNN's Candy Crowley, adding that the focus should really
be on "psychiatric and psychotropic drugs."
"They are also wanting to make certain we get in behind these video
games. I watched a couple of these last night in preparation for this
segment and, Candy, as a mother and as a grandmother, I was astounded
with some of the things I was seeing on 'Call to Duty' [sic]. And, of
course, we know the Norway shooter would go in and use that as target
