LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- In the wake of Tuesday's mass shooting that killed two people and injured 18 others at Marshall County High School, Gov. Matt Bevin said it's a cultural problem, not a gun problem.

In a video posted to social media Thursday night, Bevin said he wants to start a conversation that goes deeper than just adding another rule or regulation.

"Evil doesn't care about laws," he said. "When people choose to break laws, they don't say, 'I'll break this one and this one, but not that one.' The reality is we have a cultural problem in America."

He said the eyes of the world are on Kentucky right now because of the shooting at Marshall County High School, and he's asking parents to wake up and pay attention to the violent movies, TV shows, music and video games their children are around. 

He said the U.S. is becoming an increasingly desensitized country, and the change starts at home.
