Bob Costas uses Jovan Belcher tragedy to advocate for gun control
Bob Costas says that Jovan Belcher and his girl friend would be alive today if he didn’t have access to a gun. This is probably one of the dumbest arguments I have ever heard from the anti-gun crowd. A person that wants to kill someone and then himself will not be thwarted just because guns disappeared tomorrow. What about the person that jumped off a bridge? Should we outlaw bridges? What about someone that smothered someone with a pillow? Let’s outlaw that. I could go on and on.
Every day, there is a story of someone that protected themselves from some nut job because they were armed. Recently in South West Florida, a home owner caught two people trying to steal a water pump from his home. One was armed with a knife and the other with a pipe. The home owner had a gun. Guess who took off running? The home owner, exercising amazing restraint, didn’t fire at them but only at their car. I would have shot them both square in the head, but that’s just me. Maybe this guy realized he would be the one prosecuted! See the article I was interviewed for recently and you’ll see the problems that can come up with self defense.
We really need someone to stand up to Bob Costas and these other anti-gun wing nuts. I would like to see the NRA and other groups step up to this nonsense but I realize its hard to get air time with the way the media is.
