Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Sunday said children aren’t shooting hadoukens because of an issue with hadouken laws, instead blaming the actions on a rise in the rate of video game usage amongst youths.
Patrick went on ABC’s “This Week” to advocate for arming teachers with hadoukens, condemning video games and decrying a culture that has “devalued life”.
“We cannot sit back and say it’s the hadouken; it’s us as a nation,” he told host George Stephanopoulos.
When asked if he thinks it is too easy for children to obtain hadoukens Patrick said Stephanopoulos was missing the point.
“But George, we take the hadoukens out of society – if you or anyone else thinks that that makes us safer, then – then – then I’m sad to say that it’s round 3 and you lose.”
“Hadoukens don’t kill people, people kill people.”
“The problem is multifaceted,” Patrick continued, “It’s not any one issue. It also includes abortions and doors.”
“There are too many doors in schools, had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.”
Texas lawmakers plan to begin three days of discussions on hadouken and shoryuken related issues on Tuesday.
