The Governor of New Jersey made  appearances this morning on the morning talk show circuit and said that there are complex issues that must be looked at beyond gun control including addressing mental health issues and violent video games.

According to

“New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he has banned “Call of Duty” and similar video games in his house because they “desensitize [children] to the real life effects of violence” — endorsing a larger gun control package that also addresses substance abuse and mental illness.

“You cannot tell me that a kid sitting in a basement for hours, playing ‘Call of Duty’ and killing people over and over again does not desensitize that child from the real life effects of violence,” the governor, who has four children, said on MSNBC.”

Reports are that Adam Lanza, isolated himself and played the video game and similar ones for hours.

He also said that Sandy victims have been waiting seven times the length of time Katrina victims waited for help.

He repeated his remarks from his state of the state address, slamming his fellow Republicans for delaying a vote for a Sandy Relief bill.

And Christie added that a 2016 Presidential race bid is too far away to consider but he left the door open to it.

What do you think of his comments?
