Bob Costas

Agreed with someone that if football player didn't own a gun that two people would still be alive. a-hole... Can you kill someone with something else. Car, knive etc. Liberal pos.

Costas is overstating it, but if I had to kill someone who didn't want to be killed and somebody was going to give me a tool to do it with, I'd say give me a gun. A lot easier to kill somebody with a gun and be sure they're dead with a gun than a car or a "knive."

If someone is going to kill someone, they will do it gun, or no gun.

re: Bob Costas
don't play stupid. guns kill quicker and better than a lot of other shite. That's why everybody wants and likes them.

With other means of killing, maybe you're not successful, or maybe you have a to wait a little longer and maybe you cool off or get found out before you can do it.

I am a firm believer in the 2nd amendment and don't want any of the rights enshrined in the bill of rights to be infringed on.

But I am not going to sit here and act like guns aren't special. They are.

Agree with everything you said. I don't understand all of the outrage about what he said.

Yes but are you saying that if he didn't have a gun, he wouldn't have killed her?

I already said Costas overstated it.

If you think about probabilities, the probability of him successfully killing her quickly after he has the idea to kill her has to go down dramatically if you take the gun away from him.

You wouldn't, if you don't mind being 'informed' and lectured by a self-serving, arrogant, a-hole.

50% of homicides are committed with a firearm. Hardly definitive, so basically Costas is full of shite.

Maybe it's because it was a ridiculous segment that shouldn't have been aired. News organizations shouldn't takes stances on issues, they should simply report the facts and let people decide for themselves.

re: Bob Costas
fine. constitutionally, costas is an idiot. logically, he's also something of an idiot. But, there is a kernel of logic to what he is saying. It just doesn't lend truth to his statement.

just words that make people feel good about themselves. What if the dude ran his girlfriend over with a car and then ran to the top of Arrowhead stadium and jumped while practice was going on? Ban cars and stadiums.
Guns are efficient, but this whole this laughable.

Agreed

What about the guy that killed 3 people with bow and arrows?

Not necessarily. Knives and other weapons/methods are pretty successful at accomplishing their tasks, especially when you have a deranged and determined person implementing them.

again, you are playing dumb. And again, we are not talking about the constitution here. We have a right to bear arms, and why anybody would want to let that go away is beyond me.


That said, if you think getting all bows and arrows off the street would have the same effect on the murder rate as getting all guns off the streets, then you are stupid. and that's "why not ban cars and stadiums and bows and arrows."
