Bob Costas Anti-Gun Statement

Did anyone else just see this during the Cowboys game?

Bob Costas just read about a minute-and-a-half statement regarding the Kansas City tragedy involving Jovan Belcher.

The statement (I did not catch the author) squarely blames "the gun culture in America" and the fact that Jovan Belcher was able to purchase a firearm for the murder/suicide he committed.



It was really ****ing despicable.

End rant.

I caught it. Even my wife asked "did he really just do that?" Insanely crass & unprofessional.

Perhaps but free speech is not limited only to the things you want to hear.

I love free speech. That's why I am freely speaking now.

Yup, that is one of the great things with it. Free speech goes both ways. Bob Costas is free to make idiotic comments, and we are free to call him out on it.

It seems like you don't approve of it for Mr Costas.

Wrong Flip. I approve of him speaking freely I just don't have to agree with it!
That is the apparent difference between you and me.

Do you approve of libs burning the American flag? Like the mooslim brotherhood does?

That's free speech. And If you think it's OK, then maybe you should leave.

Just saw it, it was crap.

What about the event last week in Casper, WY. The guy used a Bow and Knife for a domestic incident. Do those weapons need banned as well?

This is my reaction as well.

It was really, really small of him. I assumed he had a little more integrity than to pull something like that in prime time.

Wow.

I have never cared for Bob Costas, or thought he had any integrity.

Unbelievable. So can I assume from his statement that those of us who own firearms are somehow in a grand conspiracy to commit violence? What Belcher did was tragic but in now indicative of gun owners in general. It's no different that the person who drives DUI and kills someone. It's the person's fault, not the item that they used to commit their crime.

I usually don't let editorials or craven attempts to politicize my odd day of TV watching, but THAT really pissed me off....how low do these bedwetters go?

Thanks for the links, I used them.

All you have to do is listen to the first 6 seconds of the above video. He(ol' Bob) was the final choice to read a statement on air. Within that first 6 seconds he stated "...but today said it so well...." blah blah blah...
