    Bob Costas is a huge idiot.

    He thinks we shouldn't be allowed to protect ourselves because we "may get in a fight due to someone stepping on someone's foot when in line" and that breaking out in a firefight. What a moron.

    "Far more often bad things happen" than someone using a gun appropriately, is what he says. He's misinformed.

    He speaketh of which he knoweth not.

    Unfortunatley, Bill is only a little less of an idiot. He let Costas get off with most of this.

    Short of waiting for the transcripts, here's a brief summary of some the highlights of comments on this evening's O'Reilly interview (from the above video):

    • Costas, RE the RKBA in his previous "Whitlock" comments: obviously people have the right; I am not pushing to repeal the 2A; I didn't call for any specific prohibition on guns; I never used the term "gun control".

    • O'Reilly, RE the RKBA: the government gave the right to bear arms.

    • Costas, RE guns in general: there should be more-comprehensive and effective controls on the sale of guns; there should be harsher penalties; there should be training requirements; there shouldn't be civilian access allowed for body armor, automatic weapons ... none of which impinges on a person's RKBA.

    • Costas, RE the "gun culture": With so many guns out there, far more often bad things happen (including unintentional things) than things where the presence of a gun diminishes [the threat/risk of a situation]. His example was that he couldn't think of a single instance in which an NFL player protected himself successfully with a firearm, but he could think of many instances when a gun resulted in bad things happening.

    I can't stand blaming equipment and tools for the problems that occur when people misuse them. And I especially can't stand ignorant people saying put in more rules and regulations. Yeah because criminals follow all of the rules and regulations right? Are people really that ignorant or just that stupid?

    Hummmmmm....... well, it's America..... so , he's entitled to his opinion.

    He may be semi-correct, in a gun culture within Sports..... but, I also remember a couple of players who defended themselves from home invasions and shot the intruders, and are here today to talk about it since they had a gun to defend themselves.

    Ok... now my .02 cents...... I disagree with Costa , and cannot buy the logic, rationale, nor even his facts that he presents nor one iota of his argument ....... 40% of all guns are sold without a background check in the USA ? Where the heck does that garbage come from ??

    Then in the most ironic statement says .... "yes, there's a lot of security here" .... (referring to Fox news). So, he feels good when there is a lot of security around ? Hummmmm, I think he just lost his own argument.

    Well that's dumb. The people reserved that right for themselves.

    Yup. On this question, so many people don't have the first clue. If I were to guess, I'd bet that O'Reilly actually believes the government gave that right (as he said), instead of the fact that it's a preexisting right of the people in which the 2A reflects a guarantee that nobody will infringe, abrogate or otherwise butcher the right of the people to arm themselves if they so choose.

    I didn't watch the whole thing - closed the tab once O'Reilly said something along the lines of, "There are two reasons for the second amendment - protection from tyranny, and because they were going to go out west and there weren't going to be any laws or anything and they needed the guns to protect themselves from BEARS and native americans they didn't want coming on their property"

    lol

    wow. I'm so glad I don't watch TV. What an idiot!

    What I dont understand, which I think most of us do, is why do people blame and inanimate object??? I mean in and of itself the gun (or knife or whatever) is not good or bad, dangerous or not dangerous. It is the person who holds the object that makes it useful, not useful, dangerous or otherwise.

    I have NEVER bought a gun at a gun store without a backround check
    Costas said 40% of all guns get sold without this check .....
