Bob Costas just did an anti-gun editorial during half time of Sunday Night Football [View all]

Last edited Mon Dec 3, 2012, 10:53 AM - Edit history (1)

Based on a Jason Whitlock article...

This is the part he quoted:

What I believe is, if he didnít possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

That is the message I wish Chiefs players, professional athletes and all of us would focus on Sunday and moving forward. Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.
