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. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but when did football analysts go from actually doing their job to trying to subvert the Constitution as Costas did last night? His rant against the 2nd amendment just goes to show us that the msm lock lib step extends to sports as well as politics. Rush has explained this for years. They are all corrupt.

  2. Maybe we should ban food, because there are a lot of people committing slow suicide by eating way to much and will die because of their obesity.

  3. Bob supports a party and subculture that portrays drugs as cool and violence as a way to solve problems. Maybe Bob should lecture people on the moral poverty that is widespread in this country? THAT is real cause of violence as well as the belief that life is cheap and has no meaning, you know Bob, like abortionists.

  4. “If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”

    Yes, because there is no other way for people to die than a handgun.

    I really don’t care for ideological liberal idiots.

  5. Another limp wrist heard from… he just needs a gun that fits in his garter belt… every country that has surrendered their guns has surrendered their liberties, and in many cases their lives… self defense aside, the second amendment defends our rights to arm ourselves against the government…

  6. If we didn’t have cars today, 30,000+ people per year in the U.S. wouldn’t be killed in crashes.

  7. Bob. Maybe you should make a moral decision and quit doing football games. After all,it is a proven fact that football players die much sooner than normal men. Show some moral courage and quit doing football.

  8. “Handguns do not enhance our safety.” Now, it is the handgun’s fault.

    Obama wants to do away with assault weapon, entirely, now Costas wants handguns gone too.

    But more important in all this is preaching during a Football game, instead of just saying nothing at all, keeping his mouth shut would have been better but the liberal never lets an opportunity to go by to express their Blow horn personal views, especially when no one cares what Costas has to say.

    Be a sports announcer and he doesn’t do that very well, or retire.

  9. To quote Archie Bunker when Meathead mentioned how many people die from handguns.
    “Would rather em be trown out of windas?”

  10. I have known bob for many years. You have to remember, he isn’t from St. Louis, he is from NYC. So, he probably comes by it honestly. I would certainly like to know if they asked him to do this or if he just popped off.

  11. Height of hypocrisy, a midget who makes a living pimping a violent, medically documented life shorting sport.

  12. #48 Ray nailed it spot on.

    and so did #15 CrackerMike –

    The irony is extra thick here.

    Mr. Costas has made millions from an extremely violent sport that literally destroys men’s brains and bodies.

    And now he has the gall to mount his little soap box and lecture the rest of us on how to conduct our lives and protect ourselves and our loved ones?

    Yes, Mr. Costas, show us that you are now afraid to put your money where your mouth is, and resign immediately your position as NBC football broadcaster to protest the culture of violence that it breeds.

    (cue sound of crickets chirping)

    I thought so.

  13. I used to like Costas. .now will turn off set whenever he is on. .like during Olympics. . .

  14. Had nothing to do with emotional and a need to seek Psychiatric help. So, Costas is saying Belcher couldn’t have killed with a steak knife or possibly drive the car off the cliff, or use drugs to kill himself or his girlfriend or punch her to death.

    First thing these libs thing of is the GUN. JUMPING THE GUN, and ACTING STUPIDLY IS MORE LIKE IT.

  15. Costas is unique. He is a dumb Greek. Now that is rare.

  16. Don’t you know, everyone gets a threat from the left big-wigs: We can make you or break you….how will you have it?

  17. 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?

    Where did he call for the banning of guns?
