1. He's one courageous dude

 

He's like the kid who told the emperor he was naked.

10. He did a good impression of Brave Sir Robin

when he "ran away" when the criticism rolled in.

I would have been more impressed if he stood his ground instead of folding in a microsecond.

11. Prove it

 

As the Delicate Flowers like to say, PROVE IT!

Prove that he "folded".

15. The funny thing is I agree with what he said the next day

"Domestic violence is part of it. Drugs and alcohol could be part of it," Costas said. "And I didn't say anything specifically about gun-control legislation or the Second Amendment. I don't want to repeal the Second Amendment. I think we should have responsible gun control, but that wouldn't prohibit somebody from carrying a gun."

That is a reasonable position.

to say it but completely disagree with what he said, this man shot her 9 times, he weighs 290 and is like 6'4...he would of got the job done since apparently he REALLY wanted her dead.

26. It's "shit stirring" only because you disagree with it.

So that was an incredibly dishonest thing to say.

25. Jury results

At Fri Dec 7, 2012, 05:17 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

I agree with his right
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=1943188

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

Maybe I'm missing the sarcasm here, but this seems OTT.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Dec 7, 2012, 05:23 PM, and the Jury voted 1-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: As much as I would love to corral the rapid response gun posse, I can't really find a reason to hide this post.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: There's no sarcasm, it's what happened. Wouldn't it have been easier to ask, if you didn't understand, instead of hitting the alert button and wasting six people's time?
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I understood the point to be that in the case of domestic violence, when one partner is clearly stronger, larger, and can overpower their partner, and wants to kill them, preventing them from having a gun won't prevent them from committing murder. That's probably true.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

4. He sure said a lot more about guns than either Presidential candidate did over

the course of the entire campaign...

7. Bob gets it.

But then it doesn't take a particle physicist to understand the inevitable consequences of flooding an aggressive population that includes significant numbers of mentally and emotionally unstable people with quick and easy killing devices.

Bob just had the courage to say it out loud in front of a big audience.

14. He supports the 2A and the right to keep and bear arms.

"Domestic violence is part of it. Drugs and alcohol could be part of it," Costas said. "And I didn't say anything specifically about gun-control legislation or the Second Amendment. I don't want to repeal the Second Amendment. I think we should have responsible gun control, but that wouldn't prohibit somebody from carrying a gun."

Even I agree with him.

17. It was not clear at first that he supported the RKBA

he was thoughtful enough to clarify his statement the next day.


Personally, I was not bothered by his original statement.

22. He talks about the "gun culture."

And no doubt he understands what's at the bottom of the "gun culture": 2A. But he also knows repeal is not in the cards at present (or probably in his lifetime) so there's no point in making life harder for himself over something that he knows ain't gonna happen. I don't blame him.

23. He also talks about the "drug" "domestic violence" and "alcohol" cultures

two of which are responsible for much more damage to society than guns.

12. I doubt you would agree with his actual views

"Domestic violence is part of it. Drugs and alcohol could be part of it," Costas said. "And I didn't say anything specifically about gun-control legislation or the Second Amendment. I don't want to repeal the Second Amendment. I think we should have responsible gun control, but that wouldn't prohibit somebody from carrying a gun."

21. i know one thing...

 

I enjoyed watching Billo try to use his brow-tactics on Costas...throwing idiotic gun fight scenarios at him and Bob ate him alive...with every reply...I had a smile on my face after the segment....that idiot looked and sounded so uncomfortable in his segue io the commercial... it was priceless...

24. I'm fine with him having an opinion

 

But I'm sure the majority of a barbaric sport like football are probably Republicans, so he should have expected some backlash.

28. think what you will of football

But plenty of us die-hard lefties are also huge football fans. Let's not conflate a gun-related tragedy to your personal feelings on the sport itself.
