During halftime of NBC’s Sunday Night Football broadcast, tiny sportscaster Bob Costas felt the need to step out of his usual role and while talking about murderous Kansas City Chief linebacker Jovan Belcher opined by quoting a fellow sports goof Jason Whitlock;
“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.”
Costas should stick to what he knows...sports and plastic surgery
There’s a reason why Costas and for that matter Whitlock are sportscasters; they just are not all that intelligent. Does anyone really believe that an oversized individual like Belcher could only cause the demise of the mother of his child by using a gun? I would bet that there were plenty of implements of death within arm’s reach in the couple's home.
The problem with simpleton’s like Costas, Whitlock, and most mind-numbed, gun control advocates is that they blame the tool, not the person using the tool. Costas and Whitlock’s misguided thought that the elimination of guns from our society would somehow eliminate violence, has been proven wrong in every nation that has ever attempted it. In fact in places where gun ownership is mandatory, violent crime is almost non-existent. Even not-to-bright sportscasters should be able to grasp the concept that bad guys won’t take the chance to act out if they might me met with serious firepower.
If Costas and Whitlock are so dead set against guns, then I would encourage them to take the lead and post signs outside their home that read; “GUN FREE HOME.” Let’s see how safe they feel then. I don’t just doubt that they would take that step I know for a fact that these gutless wonders will blanche at the mere suggestion because like all mind-numbed liberals it’s do as I say not as I do!
