Javon Belcher Murder/Suicide

Watching SNF and Bob Costas (Who I have always thought was a good broadcaster) felt the need to point out that if Belcher had not had a gun he wouldn't have killed his GF or himself.

It was the gun's fault don't you know...

I just saw that...Bob Costas is a disgrace to the sports world. He knows nothing about sports and even less about guns and social issues.

No doubt his girlfriend would still be dead. He just woulda used his hands or a knife. As for himself... Who cares, he's a murderer.

heard the tail end of it, and I knew it would only piss me off to rewind but I did it anyway.

It was all the fault of the American gun culture? Handguns make us want confrontation, armed people make convenience store disagreements turn to bloodshed, etc....

Talking out of his a$$ with no clue...

I am glad to see this made it here, cause I was getting on to post about it. I haven't liked Bon Costas as a commentator for a long time. To me he lends no real sports perspective due to lack experience. His rant tonight to me shows his ignorance both towards sports and towards the firearms community.

His comments remind me of a picture I saw once. There was a protestor with a sign that read "gun sellers are criminals because they sell guns that kill people". Standing next to him was a "overweight" gun store owner also holding a sign reading "and spoons are what made me fat".

Evil exists to destroy, to humiliate, to maim and kill. It cannot be reasoned with or appeased. It must be confronted and obliterated.

Bob Costas is an unprofessional asshole. Using his position as a sportscaster to voice his personal, anti-American beliefs is irresponsible and reprehensible.

Fvck him and NBC.

The problem with many of these anti gun idiots is that they project their own inability to control themselves on others. Never, in any confrontation with ANYONE, have I thought to get my gun and shoot them. Taking someone's life isn't on my radar screen except in defense of my family. Taking my own life has never been a thought. Murder, as well as suicide, is an illness. Nothing will stop that person. They will always find a way.

Bob Costas obviously has that type of mentality to say that. I believe he may have damaged his career by saying that. I sincerely hope that is the case.

Would Bob Costas be happy if the killer used a sword or knife instead of a gun?
Maybe he would blame the knife or sword.
