During the question and answer segment,&nbsp;</span><span class="il" style="background-color: #ffffcc;">Dodd</span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">&nbsp;was asked if it was "fair" for the National Rifle Association (NRA) to claim&nbsp;</span><a style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" href="http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/nra-blames-video-games-kinderg… video games</a><span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">&nbsp;and&nbsp;</span><a style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;" href="http://articles.latimes.com/2012/dec/21/entertainment/la-et-mn-nra-head… style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">&nbsp;are factors, in which he stated that their response was 'predictable'.

If you go back over the years, there were people who suggested that comic books were the reason for people doing this before any of this existed. If you go back and look at the history every time some of these things happens there's kind of a lurching from time to time to suggest that this is the root cause of the problems,"Dodd says. He then goes on to say that mental health should be a main focus.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif;"></div><div style="font-size: 13px; color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif;"></div><div style="font-size: 13px; color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif;">Two months after the shooting tragedy, police are now saying Adam Lanza&nbsp;<a href="http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/02/17/Police-Adam-Lanza-Ma… have been acting out a scene from a violent video game</a>&nbsp;when he opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary school.&nbsp;</div><p>&nbsp;</p>
