…when you’re in one, stop digging.

Last night on MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell”, Bob Costas continued to make a fool of himself on the issue of firearm ownership, lamenting America’s supposed “Wild West, Dirty Harry” gun culture.  Costas claimed that young men in their twenties and thirties are incapable of being responsible gun owners.  Here’s a clip:

Tell me, Mr. Costas, do you believe the tens of thousands of young men serving in our armed forces to be incapable of handling firearms responsibly?  Moreover, do you believe civilians like me – 37 years old and the holder of a Texas Concealed Handgun License – to be similarly incompetent?

Perhaps, to paraphrase William Shakespeare, the fault, dear Robert, lies not within our culture, but within yourself.  Or as Dirty Harry succinctly stated in Magnum Force, “A man’s got to know his limitations.”

  1. [Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- Bob Costas’ gun control rant was bad but made worse by one key point — he lives much of his life with the benefit of armed security. (i.e., men with guns).] i’m sure that there’s a laundry list of others who are lecturing the public from behind security gates. i think rosie o’donnell was one or was it roseanne barr?

  2. I’m curious, Bob. You said before you weren’t talking about “Gun Control.” You were talking about America’s “Gun Culture.” Just how would you change the “Gun Culture” if not with more “Gun Control”? Oh, maybe you’d start a movement to expel all the gangster wannabe football players? No. I didn’t think so. Just talk about football, Bob, and keep your anti-gun opinions to yourself.

  3. sure enough – bob has a net worth of 32 million and more than one place to hang his hat. you know he’s not approachable like the average unwashed.

  4. OK Bob, ban firearms from professionsal athletes? Are you the “expert” to make this decision. You are a squirming uninformed attention getting “Media guy”. Everyone can be upset about the murder suicide, that doesn’t mean the Constitution is wrong and you are not any kind of “EXPERT” to suggest a cure for people doing stupid things.
    Just admit it, you screwed up and take your punishment. Resign from sports casting and work for your favorite anti-second amendment group.

  5. Mr. Costas has many limitations, I do not believe he has the stability or mental capacity to own or carry a deadly weapon of any kind, including a butter knife.
    He is a liberal democrat so the propaganda media will continue to treat him like he had some knowledge about what he speaks and the kool-aid drinkers will continue to drool about his politically correct rants.

    Nothing new, just the braindead being more vocal

  6. I really could care less about anything little Bob says…

  7. At first blush I would offer that little bobby should be fired, but alas perhaps he should keep it up.

    These days most smart folks are buying guns like they’re going out of style – and his little ignorant yammerings about the right of self-defense only reinforce the lesson that the oppressive left doesn’t adhere to this right.

  9. Could any of you current gun-owners give me an example of a time when you’ve been forced to use your gun?

  10. The thing about Leftists such as Bob Costas, is that they are, at their very core, hypocrites. What’s good for the masses is never good for them because they’re so much more enlightened than all those mindless morons who make up the population of great unwashed masses over which Leftists feel compelled to rule.

    With all that having been said, if we dig into this matter a bit, you’ll ALMOST CERTAINLY learn that Bob Costas owns a firearm and, moreover, probably has a concealed carry permit.

    I wouldn’t be surprised at all to learn that he was carrying concealed at the very moment he spoke those words on the air. Total hypocrites. It’s who they are. It’s what they do.

  11. They can’t help it. Inside every Progressive is a tyrant waiting to come out.

    Take for example this quote from a FB discussion I had with a Prog:

    “Actually…,you can legislate for what you call stupidity, and we do. We protect those who lack the knowledge and smarts to make good or reasonable decisions for themselves.”

    This is typical of Progs. They honestly believe they are doing whats best for YOU by limiting YOUR freedom, not theirs, YOURS! Every one of them is a little tyrant, willing to force you to live the way THEY want you to live. F’em

  12. How are you so sure about that, Mahdi? Can you give me an example of a time when Bob Costas was hypocritical specifically? You like to talk and talk, but you have no proof at all that Costas might own a firearm.

  13. He’s just another white half-man.

  14. Bob Costas: phony do as I say not as I do hypocrite with phony hair and phony face lift. All phony. Go run off and play in traffic, Bob.

  15. Lots of good gun info:

  16. i wonder how much bob costas thinks the destruction of the family contributes to the “wild west culture” that he says exists in america today. that destruction wrecked on the family by leftists and the black civil rights leaders in the sixties. people that i sure he supports and endorses their ideas.

  17. He works for NBC. Enough said–

  18. Just ban guns for all black males in their 20’s in the NFL and that should solve the problem!!
