|Bob Costas Gun Control comments after NFL tragedy.|
I just get the kids to bed after a long weekend. I sit down to watch a “mindless kids game”, called NFL Sunday Night Football. The game just breaks into halftime of the Cowboys vs Eagles game. Shortly, before the commercial break my jaw flat hits the ground after listening to what Bob Costas said,
“Jason Whitlock sports writer, with whom I do not always agree, but today said it so well. That we may as just quote, or paraphase from the end of his article. Our current gun culture, Whitlock wrote, insures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy. And that more convenient store confrontations, over load music coming from a car, will leave more teenage boys blooded and dead. Hand guns DO NOT enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws. Tempt us to escalate arguments. And bate us into embracing confrontation, rather than avoiding it. In the coming days, Jevon Belcher’s actions and their possible connections to football will be analyzed. Who knows… But here, wrote Jason Whitlock, is what I believe. If Jevon Belcher didn’t posses a gun, he and Kassandra Perkins would both be alive today “.
I don’t care if you are pro-gun or anti-gun, this was a terrible moment to broadcast such a statement. I am obviously pro-gun and so are most of you reading our blog and publications. I would like to add, hand guns DO add to our safety. My wife is a 120 pound female and it keeps me safe at night knowing she is packing a hand gun. I want her to SHOOT anyone in the head that tries to violate her, or my children! POINT BLANK! You can’t dispute that BAD guys are always going to have access to guns. Stop preaching ignorance and stupidity during a NFL game Bob & NBC! I don’t want to hear your stupid ignorant claims.
|This is my family. This is why we have a right to own guns!|
Do we all feel sad for the families? Yes. But the truth is, Jevon Belcher was responsible for himself and I REFUSE TO BE HELD HOSTAGE FOR HIS HORRIBLE ACTIONS! PERIOD!
