This is a discussion on Fox Sports Author Blames 2A for KC Chiefs Shooting within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Horrible situation? Yes.

Horrible situation? Yes. Blame the gun? No.
If guns kill people, then how do gun show attendees ever make it out alive?? The American people need to wake up. Unfortunately, if you give the sheeple plenty to graze on, then you can push whatever agenda you wish.
So, rather than have the cojone's to say.... "I think handguns are a plague on society." Widdle Bobby can say "This is what another guy thinks about gunzez, and I might as well just quote him verbatim, 'cause I don't have an independent thought of my own.... Or the stuff to actually voice my own opinion."
Widdle Bobby is a talking head that has never played any sport... but knows about many of them... He makes every sports fan "feel good." He knows when to be worshipful (old ball parks, old players), and knows how to bring the kids into the game...
In other words, he's a chameleon. Good Boy Bobby. All fluff and no stuff... The ultimate talking head.
I have more respect for a rabid anti who says what he/she thinks and feels, than for a namby pamby that can only articulate others' thoughts; all with a slimy, derisive smile/smirk.
I used to "kinda" like him... but there was something there that didn't feel right.... this brought it to light...
He's a living, breathing internet troll/guru/expert on everything sports... that has never held a bat, a ball, a glove, a gun.... but he knows alllll about 'em, and will tell you all you need to know, if you just listen. But, he's not anonymous, like the internet expert.
It could be worse!
These people couldn't care less about your views. What they do care about is your money.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I had to stop reading the comments, some people are so NAIVE and stupid it's hard not to respond.
unbelievable.....if he hadnt had a gun "he" might be alive today...guess it would have been hard to commit suiside by strangling urself to death. so many ways to kill a person but to hear the liberals, guns are the only thing to ban..i dont get their reasoning.....
If O.J. hadn't shot Nicole with that knife she would still be alive... ohh wait... never mind.
Bobby should stick to what he knows best football, wait he is not that great at that either!
I now will have to boycot anything "Bob" is invoved with,this just made me write another check to the NRA.....
Shut off all programming 8 years ago. Have never regretted it.
Here is the NBS Sports E-Mail Address to Lodge a complaint against the Costas Rant:
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Of course the illegal prescription drugs and legal but over the practical consumption of alcohol had nothing to do with this murder suicide either... Want to write about your outrage?
Maybe you'd like to let NBC know what you think:
This is what I sent:
Bob Costas gun rant has no place during a football game. I would demand an apology or is this also NBC’s position on this issue? I don’t attend music concerts to hear a political rant so why would someone want to hear this from a sports announcer during a football game? What has his personal rant to do with football? Bob needs a vacation real soon. Actually, immediately after his apology to all us legal and responsible gun owners. Why didn’t Bob mention the illegal use of prescription drugs and over use of alcohol? Because Bob has a personal agenda which he obviously feels safe spouting off on an NBC broadcast. Hopefully, we will be able to tune into a different sports channel next time Bob is on TV. I’m done with him and NBC sports channel that support him.

Thanks for the address. Emails sent. It was pathetic and Costas is an idiot. It belittles the actual tragedy and moves the focus from the problem to an inanimate object. Coping mechanism for people who can not deal with the truth.
