“‘Our current gun culture,’ Whitlock wrote, ‘ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy. And 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 Cassandra Perkins would both be alive today.’”
Costas is such a coward and a NBC Hack that he did not even use his own words. Coward!
He allowed some jerk to voice his opinion, through him (Costas) and he should be forced off the air until he apologizes to everyone about turning a tragedy, the “Murder” of this woman into a Legal and a political situation. Included is the media’s refusal to use the word “Murder”.
This scum, did murder her and to use any other word to describe it makes me think the refusal to use the word murder is racially based. Sports should never be political, it should be sports related only and Costas ruined that barrier. Shame on Costas!
As to firearms: The 2A is LAW! The Constitution is the basis of all law in this country, no matter how much the liberals and supporters of an Obama Police State want.
If Obama and others of his ilk think that the 2A will go quietly into that good night, they are desperately and painfully wrong. 5 million weapons each month since 2010 should tell him something, “should” tell him something!
If the 2A is blocked, by UN Treaty or by executive order, by any other means other than a constitutional congress, an Amendment of the US Constitution, by the will of the people, there will be blood, pain and misery.
