Bob Costas just did an anti-gun editorial during half time of Sunday Night Football

Based on a Jason Whitlock article...

This is the part he quoted:

What I believe is, if he didnít possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

That is the message I wish Chiefs players, professional athletes and all of us would focus on Sunday and moving forward. Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.

Costas is neither TRUTHFUL or HONEST.. He is a TOOL of the leftist, mainstream media. How many of you know of his "history" in the media, where he went to school, etc.??

Sounds like another obamamama wannabe. This PUNK will say anything to make a BUCK.

Whitlock's an even bigger piece of dung. This is the racist that referred to a certain part of the 'Asian' anatomy after a game starring to Jeremy Linn of the NY Knicks. The guy's slime!

NO, he's NOT, am I am FAR from BROKE. He may be more "popular" than me, but face to face, I would make him pee his pants, and it wouldn't take LONG.

The truth:

Maybe if the majority of NFL jiggers weren't on steroids this would not have happened. Jiggers, roids and guns don't mix.

You know very little about PEDs and how difficult the can be to detect.

"Moreover, that the cycling of anabolic steroids leads to bigger and stronger football players and, hence, to on-field violence of an increasing scale should concern those who worry about the future of football and those who play it. The NFL tests for PEDs, yes, but when those tests turn up positive, it's back-page stuff. In 2006, Shawne Merriman made the Pro Bowl after testing positive for steroids. In 2010, Brian Cushing won a re-vote for AP Defensive Rookie of the Year despite having tested positive for banned substances. And so on."

Pretty hard to shoot someone at any distance without a gun, but I guess this explains why the Indians lost...which of course, escapes a teabagger "mind"....
