Bob Costas advocates for gun control

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/Bob-Costas-advocates-for-gun-control-at-halftime-Jason-Whitlock-Kansas-City-Chiefs-Jovan-Belcher-120212/?ocid=ansfox11

NBC broadcaster Bob Costas used his halftime segment on ''Sunday Night Football'' to advocate for gun control following this weekend's murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, causing an immediate debate on social media.

In a segment about 90 seconds long, Costas paraphrased and quoted extensively from a piece by Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock.

After praising the column, Costas said: ''In the coming days, Jovan Belcher's actions and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. Who knows? But here, wrote Jason Whitlock, is what I believe. If Jovan Belcher didn't possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.''

There's no way he would have been able to find another way.

5. Because it's just as easy to kill someone without a gun than it is to kill someone with one.

4. I've never viewed Whitlock too highly, but that was a very good article.

6. Guns!

 

They are ABSOLUTELY necessary for the Delicate Flowers (gun-nuts) to be able to walk out the door! It's a MINEFIELD of thugs (wink wink) out there, every one of them determined to GET THE STUFF of the Delicate Flowers! How do you expect the Delicate Flowers to go to the supermarket? It's like BOSNIA multiplied by BAGHDAD right outside the doors of Podunk, USA!
