Here's the silly 1:32 rant that Bob Costas goes on about gun control during half time on Sunday night football. Costas has never been one to get politically involved in much controversy, but this rant on gun control after the Jovan Belcher murder suicide was just seriously misplaced during a Sunday football game.
Costas quotes the most ridiculous part of an article from Jason Whitlock who doesn't quote any statistics on gun violence, he just makes up a stupid quote and hopes that it is right, but it is not, here's the quote at the end of his article:
In the coming days, Belcherâ€™s actions will be analyzed through the lens of concussions and head injuries. Who knows? Maybe brain damage triggered his violent overreaction to a fight with his girlfriend. What I believe is, if he didnâ€™t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.
Wrong, dumb, stupid! How many people have been killed without gun because someone wanted them dead? Did OJ Simpson use a gun to kill his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Brown? Several years ago, six people were bludgeoned to death with baseball bats about an hour away from our town over a stereo and guns were not involved in this horrendous crime. So should we ban baseball bats?
