Bartiromo brought up Patrick's comments about the tone on social media and violent video games.

In brief: Not for the first time, certain politicians have said video games should take some of the blame for mass shootings. "We have to look at ourselves as a nation, there are many factors that go into these shootings, many factors".

"Video games dehumanize individuals to have a game of shooting individuals or others", McCarthy said in a televised interview on Fox News' Sunday Morning Futures program. "We watch from studies shown before of what it does to individuals", he said, without referencing any specific studies.

"I see a video game industry that teaches young people to kill", he said, before suggesting that the country also turns a blind eye to violence on social media as well.

The congressman is concerned the games are setting a bad example for younger Americans.

"I've always felt that is a problem for future generations and others", he said.

At least 16 others went to area hospitals with injuries. "I was anxious nothing would be done about this gun violence epidemic". Police managed to take down Mr Betts by shooting him just 30 seconds after he gunned down people enjoying a Saturday night out.

He suggested it would be worth investigating whether social media monitoring could identify potential mass shootings before the condition of potential suspects escalates to unsafe levels. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick both pointed to the medium as being partly responsible for the tragedies that took place over the weekend. "How long are we going to ignore, particularly at the federal level, doing something about the video game industry. And yet, tomorrow, we won't let our kids even pray in our schools", Patrick, who declined interviews from other news outlets, including CNN, said.

He stated a "manifesto" believed to have been posted on-line by the alleged El Paso shooter consists of discuss residing out a "Name of Responsibility"-style "tremendous solider fantasy".

"What are we as a nation to assert that we're going to tolerate and allow a net page that lets killers submit their manifesto sooner than and to be posted after the act?" In other parts of the world, where the same games are available and similarly popular didn't experience the same amount of gun violence as U.S. did. "This was possibly a video to this evil demon - a video sport to him".

"We've always had guns; we've always had evil, but what's changed where we see this rash of shooting?"

President Trump made it very clear that work to stop or substantially reduce potential problems related to video game violence will begin immediately, but what that will look like in real terms remains to be seen.

It states that researchers found "no relationship between aggressive behaviour in teenagers and the amount of time spent playing violent video games", and this isn't the only study to have came to the same conclusion.
