re: Bob Costas

Costas is a POS and so is NBC.

I am saying what I have been saying. Maybe if you understood that I wasn't trying to make a grand statement you wouldn't be arguing with me.

I'm done arguing with these people like Costas. Let's just do the revolution now.

re: Bob Costas
well, i am going to guess that he doesn't kill himself in that parking lot without a gun.

He may have killed himself at a future point, but a gun is very simple and effective. Pills/inhalation of co2 are harder, and someone might have gotten to him before he died. Hanging is unrealistic in a parking lot.

I disagree with your premise that suicides are more prevelent due to access ability of handguns

Maybe, maybe not. The ease and convenience of a firearm makes it a lot easier. Murder-suicide is usually a "heat of the moment" event. And having to use hands, knife, etc, makes it a less likely.

Costas (quoting Whitlock) overstates the case, but his statement doesn't call for the stereotypical knee jerk response we're seeing on the board.

And, as I said in the other thread, I own guns. Nobody's going to come knocking on my door to take them away because of Bob Costas.

re: Bob Costas
state easiest to buy and own a handgun:

Alaska, murder rate: 3.1

State hardest to buy and own a handgun:

Illinois, murder rate:6.0

Ease and access does not correlate to murder or suicide


The U.S. has the 38th highest suicide rate, behind no less than 30 countries where handguns are banned and illegal...

Hence, VOR, your beliefs are merely a figment

Costas should be fired. A sportscaster shouldnt be airing his personal political opinion on TV. Talk about sports, dont take advantage of a tragedy to advance your political ideology.

This is a good point.

So, let's say he had no gun, and killed his girlfriend with a gun/knife,tire tool. But, he has no convenient way to off himself.

Now we have to pay for a trial and his jail time.

With a gun, the murderer can easily kill himself. Saving the taxpayers a wad of cash.

You disagree with that?
So the only reason someone kills another is because of access to guns?
How anyone thinks this way is mind boggling.

That's not what he said.

is not the same as

Think about all the 2nd degree murders that wouldn't happen. Robberies or drug deals gone bad. Acts of passion. Accidents/innocent victims in the commission of a crime.

Think about the POS that would use a gun to rob/murder. That's the problem. Not the guns.

There will always be accidents.

And even these are a minority.

This rant isn't directed at you Enadious...

In America's murder stats, if you actually take out suicide (the largest chunk) and illegal murders (not lawful self defense), the rate is actually quite low.

Get the correlation? Good people have A LOT to lose and some POS on the streets has NOTHING to lose because that's all he's ever known.

This is something I can never get people to understand. I have a CC permit and can't just walk around threatening people. I have a lot to lose and won't just "snap" one day and break the law. I'm law-abiding and responsible.

Reference here...

Apparently, a truck will do it:
quote:

Shelby Harmon, 20, died in the early morning hours of Oct. 20 as a result of being hit on U.S. 61 by multiple vehicles. Investigators say the first one was Fulgham’s pickup. Fulgham was charged with felony vehicular homicide. Because he was out on a previous felony bond for burglary, he was denied bond.
