Just what you want from your sport’s announcer.
During halftime of the Sunday Night NFL Game lib Bob Costas lectured America on gun control.
This came after Kansas City Chief’s linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and committed suicide on Saturday.
Via MRC TV:

The Blaze has the transcript:

Writer Jason Whitlock, with whom I do not always agree but today said it so well that we may as well just quote or paraphrase from the end of his article.

Our current gun culture, Whitlock wrote, ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.’

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.

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.

These libs can’t help it.
They have to politicize everything – even a Sunday night football game.

  1. If “O. J.” Simpson hadn’t owned a handgun Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman would be alive today.

  2. Not surprised. If Kieth Olberman was still on nbc I’m sure he would have been letting us know how we must live our lives too. Sports is the only thing I watch on nbc but even that isn’t safe from the tatalitarians.

  3. I used to look up to and admire Mr. Costas. I certainly believe he has the right to express his opinion. This, for now is a free country. However, when I hear this, part of me thinks that Me. Costas used his star power to manipulate the shows writers and producers to bloviate his personal position on air. If you realty think about it and have watched him over time you would come to see that Mr. Costas is nothing more than an intellectual bully. He hides behind sports trivia facts and figures to baffle you with his “supposed” intellect. Yet, when he opines like this he reveals himself. He is the main reason I will not watch NBC sports if he is on. I do not respect the man. He is a coward exposed.

  4. “….Ronald Goldman would be alive today.” maybe he’d be alive if he had a gun.

  5. Too many injectables to the face? Looking kinda scary these days. Old Mr. St.Louis/Costas, please just go walk around the East St. Louis alone, any time of day in your camel hair coat and your $1000 shoes. Dare you. Wait, that’s in Illinois, conceal and carry not-ville for law abiding folks. Wear your rolex. You’ll be perfectly safe. The Poe-lease are just a phone call away, but hey what if they take your phone too. Pay phone?

  6. “….Ronald Goldman would be alive today.” maybe he’d be alive if he had a gun.
    ———————————

    Yes but that does not fit with the story line.

  7. Might be alive if he hadn’t played football, but costas isn’t going to risk his money by saying anything bad about the NFL.

  8. I think if the clown wouldn’t have had a gun the girlfriend would still be dead but the clown would still be alive. This is a better outcome?

  9. A knife, strangulation, poisoning, death by a blunt instrument should also be banned!

  10. Why didn’t Costas call for the banning of rope when on the same day a member of the Cleveland Browns’ grounds crew hung himself in a shed?

  11. “If “O. J.” Simpson hadn’t owned a handgun Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman would be alive today.”

    They were stabbed to death not shot………..

  12. It’s nice for Mr. Costa to explain to us that without a gun, some drug addled football player, and his girlfriend, would still be alive. I guess there is no way Belcher could have stabbed her to death, drowned her in a bath tub, smashed her head in with a hammer or even, considering the weakling Belcher was, strangled her. And he certainly could not have slit his own wrists, hung himself, jumped from a bridge, or parked his car in the garage, started it, closed the garage door and waited until the exhaust killed him.

    Had any of those things been done, just look at the list of products Costa could have blamed:

    Knife
    Water and bathtub
    Hammner
    another Knife,
    Hands
    Rope
    Bridge
    Car
    Garage

    Costa is an idiot like all left wing lunatics.

  13. Ms Shine: Despite hollywood’s efforts to portray women as being of superior wit than men, it’s not true is it.

  14. Never forget for an instant that Costas makes an extravagant living covering these NFL players receiving the concussions that facilitate such actions. He makes his living off people destroying their brains and then has the gall to lecture me about the results. Go back to your sheltered, gated community existence you little dweeb. And don’t forget to count your money made off the injuries of others.

    That is my point.

  16. Instead of blaming guns, why don’t we blame our crappy culture.

    Was Jovan married to the mother of his child? No. Did he think about getting married before having kids? I don’t know. After his girlfriend got pregnant, did he offer to marry her? Not sure. Were Jovan’s parents John Belcher and Cheryl Shepard married? I don’t know.

    Maybe if the culture encouraged old, fashioned marriage instead celebrating hedonism, we would raise adults in this society instead of overgrown adolescents who in some unfortunate instances commit horrible crimes.

  17. Who cares what Bob Costas has to say about anything other than sports. That ABC allowed him to editorialize like that says as much, if not more, about ABC than about Costas.

  18. Abortion kills a heckuva lot of people too.

    Tom is correct

    Ban the crossbows!

    “What we can find is that the individual that committed the violent acts was not a student at the college, but that there was a known relationship between [the victims],” said Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh at a press conference on Friday afternoon.

    The Police Chief later clarified that all three had known each other. Police say the killer was not a current student at Casper College. Walsh could not confirm that the suspect was a former student, either. Walsh added that there were no records that could have tipped off authorities to any kind of threat. Walsh said no firearms were used during the homicides, and rather said that “edged weapons” were involved.

    However, multiple students told K2 News that some kind of a bow-and-arrow weapon was used. Walsh later emphasized that following the attacks no suspects were at large and there (are) no threats of random violence.
