Reacting to Bob Costas’ controversial halftime gun control lecture on Sunday night, retired NBA all-star Charles Barkley said he carries “a real gun” because he feels “safer with it.”

Barkley, appearing on “Costas Tonight,” said he doesn’t think the nation has a “gun culture” but rather a “crime culture” especially “in the black community.”

“You know, we as black people always, we don’t have respect for one another. You know, we’ve got more black men in prison than we do in college and crime in our neighborhoods is running rampant,” Barkley said.“And I know everybody reacts when something like the Belcher thing happens, but being black, this is something you deal with all the time. And it’s just sad. I’m a guy, I carry a gun. I carry a gun.”

Costas then pointed out that Barkley lives in Arizona where he can “legally carry a gun.”

“Even when I lived in Philadelphia, I’ve had a gun, I’ve carried a gun in my car every year in my life since I was 21, 22. Never had to use it,” Barkley added.

“Are you packing right now?” Costas asked jokingly.“Just being sure.”

“No, no no. I can beat you and John,” the Hall-of-Famer replied.

Like many responsible gun owners, Barkley went on to explain that he hopes he never has to use his gun, but having it makes him feel “safer” and gives him a “sense of peace.”

“I just feel safer with it because we have jocks who get robbed all the time,” he said.“Road rage and things like that, I feel a sense of peace when I have it when me. But it would take extreme circumstances for me to even touch it.”

I love the original thought and all time ye puts into writing these masterpieces of observations on the state of your navel.

This obsessive cut and paste fetish must be a side effect of his barrage of anti-psychotic medications.

Cleavon, you are the idiot savant of all of Topix.

I like Barkley. Don't always agree with him but he doesn't candy coat things.

I'll feel safe when only the police and criminals are armed.

Liberal logic 101. Aka cowardly mangina communist drones.

Costas said he'd rather lay on this belly and beg for his life then have a gun and try and defend himself and those around him.

It's a good thing we don't need bob to defend America or we would all being speaking Russian.

They're right that young athletes (or young people in general) being armed is somewhat scary. But the solution is more mentoring by older people so that the young guns learn how to talk their problems out instead of pulling a piece as the first response to being dissed.

Gun control doesn't work. Never has, never will.

That's troll-speak for "I'm an envious, angry little kid who can't refute a single thing my betters present in their posts."

Bob Costas is living proof of how mentally weak, and inept liberals are as human beings. He doesn't have hardly any problems in the world, because he's protected by bodyguards. Since when do you see that measly turd Costas engaging in every day living alone? Since when do you see this Barry Soetoro schmoozer eating out at a commoner's burger king? Or shopping alone at a Easton, or colony square mall type of establishment? Costas, the measly turd lives high on a rich white-guilt ridden liberal hog.
