    Classy Bob... classy.
  • Smart, reasonable restrictions on gun access and ownership isn't at odds with the spirit of the 2nd Amendment.
  • you are watching NBC it's like a long running Elephants turd.

  • AverageAmericanGuy: Smart, reasonable restrictions on gun access and ownership isn't at odds with the spirit of the 2nd Amendment.


    And which political party that you don't like gets to say what those restrictions are? And when they decide to take them away completely? Do you say "No biggie, I didn't need a gun anyway."
  • NBC pushes their agenda throughout their program list, from Monday Night Football to Law and Order. Costas is just a cog in this.
  • SumDumGit: And which political party that you don't like gets to say what those restrictions are?


    The Supreme Court does, and even Scalia thinks there can and should be restrictions. Just not "absolute personal ownership" bans, like what was overturned in DC.
  • Bob Costa's was quoting a local journalist and nothing he said is wrong.

    Lots of people needlessly die due to our gun culture. This seems to be an acceptable cost of business as usual in America.
  • Strange...never heard Costas get all that upset before about a guy killing his girlfriend, then himself...

    OH, RIGHT...these were actually important people because NFL.

    Lots of people also die needlessly due to our car culture...

    so... let's get rid of those too.

    The General Electric agenda? Or the Comcast agenda.

    Actually Whitlock is a Fox Sports journalist from Kansas City.

    People need cars, people don't need handguns as every other Western nation in the world already knows.

    Look, I am not getting into this argument with you. It is like arguing how many angels can fit on a pin head?
  • I wondered how long this thread would take to turn up.

    Lots of people die due to our car culture, and our athletics culture, hell our food culture.

    The problems aren't the tools we use to hurt ourselves, merely that we have a systematic breakdown of society that prevents us from recognizing the difference between WHAT we are doing vs WHY we are doing it.

    This young man committed violence on not only himself. but another human being. That is what needs to be addressed. Not the fact that he used a lump of metal to do so.

    Was the announcer wrong? I would say he had a national pulpit to make his statement from. I don't agree with his words, but he's got stones to say it so bluntly on a national stage. I just wish that he would have gotten to the root of the people instead of beating the same old tired drum.

    ... One of a very, very small number of NFL starting players, just yeserday, shot his child's mother dead in cold blood, then drove to the practice facility and home of his employer, an NFL team, and shot himself in front of a front office man and the team's head coach.

    So, whether or not I agree with Costas, I'd say this was as good as any time to bring this up.

    Says who? You?

  • Who the fark cares about what random people on twitter say or care about?
  • I saw that, live, and the first thing I thought was, "Oh man, he's gonna be in trouble now..."

    Can we? That would be awesome and save me a fortune, every year. Unfortunately, there's no real public transportation where I live, so I have to keep mine.

    Alright then. Why did he blame the gun? Christ Benoit proved that a roided up strongman needs no weapons to kill his wife and himself. Why not address the issue of concussion-causing brain damage rampant in the NFL? Why not the media's, including NBC's, role in perpetuating and glorifying the "gun culture"? Why take the simpleton's route of blaming the gun for the action of the man?

    It's been brought up. Now defend it.

    You forgot to answer this.

    You mean like Mexico?

    Or like Switzerland?
  • Some people have a big problem with having a political agenda pushed down their throats during a football game. The problem isn't with the misguided beliefs but with the stage on which they were espoused.

    B-b-b-ut this is America! The constitution says every family needs at least one fully automatic machine pistol, just for huntin'!

    /Or so I've heard.
    //But switchblades and brass knuckles are illegal in most states, because, you know, they're like dangerous!
