    Why bother with facts when you can appeal to emotion?

    I'd watch it, but Bill is an anti-gun turd himself. So, when the blind lead the blind, they both shall fall in the ditch.
    Albeit at the humor to those around them watching...

    SOFT BALL ALL THE WAY.. Bill is probably looking for some tickets.

    And as usual when it comes to guns, the interviewer is as much in the dark and misinformed as the guest.

    Allowing terms like automatic weapons, bazookas and military body armor into any legitimate conversation does nothing but blur the issues.

    So 60% of the NFL own guns. Do any of them hunt, shoot trap or skeet? Could be! It could also be that they want to protect themselves and their families from a world of nuts who would love to rob, kidnap or commit any of a number of crimes against them.(JUST LIKE MOST HONEST GUN OWNERS).

    The football hero could have just as easily given the woman one punch and killed her. At least after doing his vile deed he wound up saving the taxpayers a few million dollars by shooting himself and justice was served.

    And who is Costas anyway? Just a talking head who spouts out numbers and records as fast as the statisticians can feed them into his earbud.

    When he was doing the Olympics I didn't know if I was watching a sporting event or a lecture in actuarial (sp) mathematics.

    Please Bill, the next time you plan on this type of interview let someone do it that has at least a little information on the topic.

    For one, Costas said that we can go to the LGS and buy fully automatic weapons. He said the Colorado movie shooter had artillery. He said that peoe at the Colorado shooting theater could carry weapons - which contradicted another statement he made. Overall it was a rant.

    Actually, Bill stated that he would want to be armed so he can protect himself.

    Costas is FOS. The network needs to fire him. In the words of Bugs Bunny, "what a maroon".

    Bill often says thing that contradict with his previous statements when it will help him win an argument.That and he yells a lot and wont let people answer him, those are his only tactics.

    Certainly a faulty generalization - Of all the pro football players Costas knows that own guns, none have used them to save themselves, but some have used them to hurt themselves or wrongfully hurt others.

    O'Reilly could have simply asked: How many of the pro football players that you know are 110 pound women that have been the victims of a violent crimes by 200 pound men?

    Initially Costas looked like he didn't want to be there. Claimed he never said the words "gun control" or "second amendment" Big deal Costas, we can read between the lines.

    O'Reilly asked him some fairly easy questions, but he did hold his feet to the fire for an answer that Costas clearly wanted to avoid, the one about being armed at the Batman movie. At the end Costas, I thought, got a bit prickly saying that he meant what he said and would say it again.

    Too much colorful verbage......Dirty Harry, Wild West, bazookas, body armor, and the dreaded "automatic weapons".

    I don't have the time, but I wish someone would post some email links that we could use to complain about Costas. IIRC he also said on O'Reilly that it had been a tough 72 hours, or something like that. He's feeling some heat, I'd like to complain to his advertisers (that's where the money is)
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    This does not fit his rhyme scheme of usually blasting gun ownership. I'm sure Hitler one time said hello to a bagel shop owner while walking to work years before the war.
