Bob Costas, instead of being the Sportscaster of Sunday Night Football he was hired to be, decided to pontificate on the evils of the 2nd Amendment during halftime which frankly, left a lot of people watching stunned. Costas quoted a liberal Kansas City sportswriter named Jason Whitlock, who shamefully, used the horrific Jovan Belcher murder/suicide yesterday, as fodder in making his point against the availability and use of guns in our country.
Bob Costas went full gun control as you can see in the video below. For that matter, so did Jason Whitlock whom Costas quoted from this article. But here’s a wee bit of reality for these morons: two people are dead because one of them chose to pick up and use a gun during an argument. A little baby girl, their daughter, is now left behind without either parent to care for her. A selfish choice was made by Jovan Belcher to use the gun to take Kasandra Perkins’ life and then his own. The gun didn’t make the choice. Two people are now dead and families are grieving because of that selfish choice. Bob Costas and his left wing rant was completely out of line and pathetically out of place. Blaming violent acts on the inanimate object, in this case a gun, allows individuals to escape responsibility for their own actions.
Why don’t you know that Bob?
So stop lecturing us. Quit exploiting the dead for your own pathetic political agenda. You’re such a douchenozzle.
