Bob Costas Exploits NFL Murder/Suicide to Take Our Guns

We saw it after that terrible movie theatre shooting in Colorado back in July, and now we’re seeing it with the tragic murder/suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher. Damn logic, damn facts, damn waiting for a little something known as an investigation — we have a tragedy, we have a gun, and now we have yet another opportunity to push an agenda meant to strip Americans of their God-given Second Amendment rights.

Last night during NBC’s NFL telecast, Bob Costas did something the NFL has always been very good about avoiding — inserting politics into what Americans of all political stripes see as one of the few remaining escapes from the divisive partisanship that seems to infect everything these days. Taking advantage of a captive halftime audience, Costas suckered punched millions with a left-wing preach about gun control. The fact that Costas does this while God Bless America can be heard in the background is not an irony that should be lost on anyone:

    Costa…isnt he a homo…That is what I heard…Really dont know the guy since I NEVER watch any NFL nor any sports actually…Not a fanatic…

  • indianball

    Whitlock “believes”. He can “believe” anything he wants. Anyone can “believe” anything they want. The event with Belcher is not and should not be considered a gun issue. It should be considered a heart issue.

  • Idadho

    How about Costas reporting on the brain damage done to football players that leaves them with behavioral issues such as explosive outbursts that can end in scenes like this one?

    • IMSweetOlBob

      Right Idaho ! The brain damage from multiple concussions leaves a guy just as unsettled as an inbred muslim. Liable to go off at any time, over a real or imagined slight.

  • Ledrick Jones

    First and foremost, this player had some serious issues to begin with, he kills his girlfriend but what does he do with their 3 month old child???? who knows or cares for that matter. I call it TNB, and most black males act this out all the time. TNB….it is what it is Costas, and you nor anyone else can do anything about it, with or without a gun in possession.

    • nunya damn bidness NSA

      What is TNB? I have seen several black males beat their women down so I was just wondering…

  • caskinner

    Costas should be fired for being an idiot.

  • cdoc

    F%#@ you Costas, you politically retarded freak.

  • beachmom H

    Well Bob, get rid of cast iron frying pans, knives, vehicles, pots of hot water, hammers, baseball bats and whatever else can be used to bludgeon or kill someone. Really Bob. You’re showing your inability to think ahead. What a tool.

  • arley_barley

    If his stupid statement were true, then there would never have been a case of ‘murder/suicide’ before handguns. There was, using, knives, clubs, poison, and so on, and the hand-gun is only one of many ‘tools’ used to complete the act described. Sadly, long before the gun, WAR; yet, many say, disarming is the answer to WAR, again – W R O N G ! ! Maranatha, Lord, Jesus. (I enjoyed the background music, however)

  • linda

    What an idiot, people kill people!!! If it would not have been with a gun I am sure he would have done it with a knife or his own hands. What next don’t allow Americans to own knives cut our hands off when we are born because those can be used as weapons. Please Stop It!!! And wait until they find something out and than talk about it on the stinking news at 10!!!! Jerk!!

    What has America become????

    ➔ Has America become the land of special interest and home of the
    double standard? Let’s see: If we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony
    and if Congress lies to us it’s just politics. If we dislike a black person,
    we’re a racist and if a black dislikes whites, it’s their 1st Amendment
    right. The government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and
    they do almost nothing for the victims. In public schools you can teach
    that homosexuality and lesbianism is ok, but you better not use the
    word God in the process. You can murder a child in the mothers womb,
    but it’s wrong to execute a mass murderer. We don’t burn books in
    America, we now rewrite them. We got rid of the communist & socialist
    threat by renaming them progressives. If you protest against Obama’s
    policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burn an American flag or George
    Bush in effigy, it’s your 1st Amendment right.

    ➔ You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not
    put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas. In America,
    criminals are now called sick people. The government takes money
    from those who work hard & gives it to those who are lazy. Parenting
    has been replaced with Ritalin & video games. The land of opportunity
    is now the land of hand outs.

    ➔ And how do we handle a major crisis today? The Government
    appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens
    them, passes a law, raises our taxes, then tells us the problem is
    solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

    ➔ An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a Muslim woman in a burka is only subject to having her neck and head
    searched.

    ➔ You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for
    being in the country illegally.

    ➔ Your government believes that the best way to eradicate
    trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more of our money.

    ➔ A seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for calling his
    teacher “cute” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in
    grade school is perfectly acceptable.

    ➔ The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts
    cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom, while sitting
    in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.

    ➔ Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately
    discipline them while children of “underprivileged” drug addicts
    are left to rot in filth infested cesspools.

    ➔ Working class Americans pay for their own health care
    (and the health care of everyone else) while unmarried women
    are free to have child after child on the “State’s” dime while never
    being held responsible for their own choices.

    ➔ Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and
    government intrusion, while slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded
    with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid and subsidized housing,
    and free cell phones.

    ➔ The government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide
    99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work).

    ➔ Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government.

    ➔ Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution
    is really protecting the rights of the people.

    ➔ The rights of the Government come before the rights of the individual.

    ➔ Parents believe the State is responsible for providing for their children.

    ➔ You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen
    TV while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iphones, TV’s and new cars)
    and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your tax dollars).
    Your government can add anything they want to your kid’s water (fluoride, chlorine, etc.)
    but you are not allowed to give them raw milk.

    ➔ Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you “safe”.

    ➔ You have to have your parent’s signature to go on a school field trip but not to get an abortion.

    ➔ Using the “N” word is considered “hate speech” but writing and singing songs
    about raping women and killing cops is considered “art”.

    SURELY WE SHALL REAP WHAT WE HAVE SOWN..

    • pduffy

      Your list clearly shows the depravity of the USSA. It’s the fulfillment of prophesy – the “great falling away” prophesied by the Apostle Paul that would happen in the last days.

    • caskinner

      Excellent Raymond. I feel like I am living in the insane asylum.

  • EG

    little bobby has always thought of him self as a Walter Cronkite but the only thing big about this little
    man is his mouth, he used his platform to spew his on opionion, please can this arrogant pig.

    Costas, any respect that I had for you just went down the toilet with your moronic views on guns causing this very sorrowful act of murder by an obviously disturbed football player.
    If Hank Williams was fired for telling the truth about our dicktator wannabe POTUS, then you should absolutely be fired/terminated for your anti-Constitutional political “opinion”.
    Guns don’t kill people piss ant, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE!
    Keep your globalist anti Constitutional political views to yourself, please.

  • IMSweetOlBob

    FIRE COSTAS ! The last I heard he was hired as someone who knew something about football, not as a Jimminy Criket to chirp out his views on other matters.
    Does he know for sure that the brain damaged Herculese would not have broken her neck instead 0 ?Who the hell is he to make predictions on happenings like this? He can say he’s sorry. He can say he noticed strange behavior. He can say that the guy had a few too many concussions. But he can’t stand and put on his riighteous, prissy, preaching face and say for sure that the dirty old guns came out of the drawer and pulled their own trigger.
    Get rid ot this preacher.

  • Laird

    Possession of a handgun equals the inevitability of suicide?? Well, anyone who is hell-bent to murder or commit suicide won’t be stopped because they don’t possess a handgun…..IDIOT!! Ever heard of rifles, shotguns, knives, bats, and clubs??

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/YO3N43C7H5HSDYX5RXWOTKTR7E MARVIN

      Money kills more than handguns ever could. Some people cannot handle life because they are mental sick with taking drugs to warp their lives. Liberals morons, guns don’t kill people, people kill people! Some stupid moron will want the lead from my guns eventually but the gun needs a operator to pull the trigger.

  • Vic Bailey

    Costas, you, young man are an IDIOT! Spread that government liberal propaganda to your democRATic socialist IDIOT friends! Being in the news media, you know the real stats on gun deaths, and it’s a lot less than you and the media want to admit, and you don’t want people to know how many guns SAVE LIVES! So go eat your vegggies and drink your diet coke, with Bama, and leave our rights out of it! Semper Fi.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KSRJ2G37O3AFOH3LISCRMFJYLE R

    The libs just never give up spewing their lies that come from being Illogical and misinformed. Give a lib a microphone and they just can’t control themselves. Maybe that’s why they assume no one else is responsible.

  • Zoomie72

    Read John Lott’s “More guns, less crime” to find out the truth. In his book he uses FBI crime data to show that states and cities with the strictest gun laws have more violent crime than those which do not. And that those crime rates go up after the laws are passed. And that after other states and cities pass more lenient Constitution supporting laws the crime rate goes down. If Jovan hadn’t had a pistol he would have used a knife or a blunt weapon of some sort.

  • Jaime Cancio

    As usual, always telling us how to live and now telling us how a person(s) dead thought prior to their deaths when there is absolutely no way of telling what actual events or circumstance led up to the deaths nor what the victims were thinking. I will prefer to think those killed put themselves out of the misery of listening to this idiot Bob Costas. Sounds reasonable to me. I also think, as to the political agenda and rhetoric spewed forth by Costas he should face termination. I do not tune in football, or any sports programing, but for entertainment and amusement in the attempt to get away from all the crap that goes down in this country. I wonder too, just after listening to this a**hole, I turned television off; just how many other viewers did this too? Perhaps it is time to eliminate watching anything to do with NBC as well if they allow this to go unpunished.

  • Flubadub

    Hey Bob, up yours!

  • CaptTurbo

    It’s official. Bob Costas is an idiot.

  • CyclingFoodmanPA

    Bobby should join forces with nanny Bloomberg and all the other worthless mayors and governors who want us disarmed. Obviously little Bobby boy has never fired a weapon or SERVED IN THE MILITARY!

  • Bob Pelsang

    Why is it you hear about someone dying from a gun and they try and take guns away? Motor vehicle crashes in the United States result in more than 40,000 deaths per year, That is 10,000 more deaths than from guns…. But they are not trying to take cars away.

  • $26222150

    5’ll get you 10 Costas allows his security detail to carry.

  • dhm

    Hey Keith Olberman, what did you do with Bob Costas? Did you kidnap him? Where did you hide him?

  • Jeff graham

    Costas forgot to mention weather or not the handgun in mention was legally owned or not. We all know that most of the gang related shootings are done by unregistered guns and not by those who have trained with and legally own their own guns..

  • James Fontana

    Fire Costa for bringing political issues to sports.

  • gmhunt4

    Costas should stick to sports, he is not very good at it, but he knows nothing about the Constitutional 2nd Amendment Rights. He isn’t even smart enough to know “guns do not kill people” “people kill people”

  • nike1234

    NBC should get rid of Costas for taking advantage of your audience to spout his nonsense!!!
