Fox & Friends Co-Host Elisabeth Hasselbeck: We Need National Registry for Video Games

The new Fox & Friends host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck (formerly the lone conservative on ABC's The View) suggested during the Tuesday morning show that "the left" was trying to make Monday’s mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard about "gun control." Instead she pointed out that the country doesn't need a national registry for guns, it needs one for to track video game purchases. Raw Story offers some choice quotes from the segment – thanks PHX Corp for the tip.

"You know, certainly, this topic has already taken a turn again, the left’s already making this about gun control," Hasselbeck said.

"Is this about gun control or is this about a guy who has a history of drinking a lot, playing video games a lot and a few shooting incidents?" co-host Brian Kilmeade asked.

"But you talk about this guy’s background, as we look into it," Kilmeade continued. "He’s got a friend, who said, 'Yeah, he had an obsession with video games, shooting video games. In fact, he would come over and he would be playing so long — these video games, these shooting games — we’d have to give him dinner, we’d have to feed him while he continued to stay on them.'"

"Are more people susceptible to playing video games?" Hasselbeck continued. "Is there a link between a certain age group or [demographic] in 20- to 34-year-old men, perhaps, that are playing these video games and their violent actions?"

"What about frequency testing?" she added. "How often has this game been played? I’m not one to get in there and say, monitor everything, but if this, indeed, is a strong link, right, to mass killings then why aren’t we looking at frequency of purchases per person? And also, how often they’re playing and maybe they time out after a certain hour."
