Costas, Whitlock dismiss backlash against their ‘gun culture’ remarks

NBC’s Bob Costas on Monday appeared on Foxsports.com columnist Jason Whitlock‘s podcast, “Real Talk,” to explain why he advocated for gun control during the halftime show of the nationally televised Sunday night NFL game.

During the game, Costas quoted Whitlock’s editorial, which stated that former Kansas City chiefs player Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend would still be alive if Jovan did not own a handgun. (RELATED: Chiefs player shoots girlfriend, then kills himself in front of coaches at Arrowhead Stadium)

“Had the incident not involved an NFL player, then no matter how important it may have been as a news item, it would not have been appropriate to bring it in there,” Costas said. “But that circumstance had been discussed, and in one way or another throughout the day on all the NFL programs and on our program.”

The NBC analyst said his remarks have been unfairly and hypocritically attacked by gun-rights advocates.

    Gee, these two deep thinkers are using a drunken adulterer who kills and murders in order for them,to push a foolish notion about guns. Great thinking. You using Obama’s teleprompter?

  • Jim Jagger

    As usual, it’s the weapon’s fault, not the individual who couldn’t control his/her emotions or act in an adult manner. God forbid that someone ever use toilet paper as a murder weapon, or the Left will outlaw that, too.

    Is the microphone responsible for the stupid things Costas says?

  • Mike11C

    If you come to my house to take away my weapons, bring something to eat because I get hungry after I kick ass.

  • nascarnut

    Costas should stick to football. He knows nothing about guns or the right to own one. What about the guy that killed two people with “a sharp edged weapon” in Casper, Wyoming? If a person wants to kill someone bad enough they can run you over with a car. Then what? Ban automobiles? Whatta @sshole!

    Bob Costas is a dick with ears but no balls.

  • OLDDAD

    The gu culture is what gave this fool the right to speak his mind, shame it didn’t teach him reality.

  • Guest Poster

    A few thousand letters written by unhappy people to the sponsors of Costas’s broadcasts might find him unemployed should those sponsors be informed that as long as he is a commentater on the show their companies will be boycotted might get their attention.

    Costas your a commy bast*$d. Why don’t you shutup and keep your opinions to yourself.

    FOX NEEDS TO FIRE HIM. I AGREE THAT ITS NOT THE GUN, ITS THE PERSON BEHIND IT.IF IT WOULDNT BE GUNS IT WOULD BE SOMETHING ELSE. THINK OF IT THIS WAY, THE FIRST MURDER WASNT DONE BY GUN. CANE KILLED HIS BROTHER WITH A ROCK, MIDDLE AGES IT WAS WHAT YOU CAN GET THERE HANDS ON. ROCKS, CLUBS, SWORDS AND YES THERE BARE HANDS. YOU CANT STOP PEOPLE FROM KILLING. LOOK AT OBAMA HE TO HAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS.
