Tom concludes his newsletter with some good ways to make sure the anti-gun position doesn't go unchallenged.

Send the NFL a letter.

We want politics out of the NFL. I didn’t watch the 2nd half of the game after Costas puked his stupidity all over his mic.

From Commack HS South. The same school that gave us Rosie O’Donut. Wonder if Costas is a butthole Truther too?

Ps I went to the North school.

Costas should be fired. People watch football as an ESCAPE from the daily grind. He had no business grandstanding and campaigning for the anti-gun crowd. He should be fired. Why didn’t he mention the incident on Saturday at a Wyoming college when a man used a BOW AND ARROW and shot his father (a teacher) in the head with it in front of his class then STABBED him to death, and STABBED his father’s girlfriend to death prior to that. The perp STABBED HIMSELF TO DEATH AFTERWARDS.. NO GUN INVOLVED, THREE PEOPLE DEAD. The news media didn’t cover this story very much because it doesn’t IMPLICATE GUNS OR GUN OWNERS. FUTC!!!

A gun is a tool. That people misuse the tool is a reflection of the culture but political considerations won’t let that be addressed. Santa Muerte, hip hop and anarchist nihilism lead to murder being seen as a solution.

Blame the microphone. The microphone caused Costas to say those stupid things. Ban All Microphones!

"The NFL is a business. They take notice when viewers turn the channel."

Costas has been a flaming lib for decades. Anyone who tuned into the game last weekend was willing to overlook all his prior screeds and idiot commentary.

Next week will be no different.

One of my co-workers opined this morning that Costas should have said that he never would have been killed if slavery had not been banned because he would have been out in the field working. /s^2

Costas fits the saying: “You can’t fix stupid!”

To see Clueless Costas blithely skip into the middle of this tragedy with such shallow and demonstrably false assumptions belies his reputation as a heretofore respected reporter.

Excuse me?? When did Costas become a respectable reporter??

Costas has a constitutional right to state his opinion but he has no right to use his position as a highly-paid (reportedly 5 million per year - so he can hire bodyguards) TV sports announcer to hijack a tragedy and use it as a vehicle to attack the Second Amendment as part of his commentary on a football game. Oh, I forgot. He works at NBC. Never mind.

NFL Firearms Policy:

“Prohibitions. Whether possessed legally or illegally, guns and other weapons of any kind are dangerous. You and your family can easily be the losers if you carry or keep these items in your home. You must not possess these weapons while traveling on League-related business or whenever you are on the premises of the following:

• A facility owned, operated, or being used by an NFL club (for example, training camp, dormitory, locker room, workout site, parking area, team bus, team plane, team hotel/motel);

• A stadium or any other venue being used for an NFL event (for example, a game, practice, or promotion);

• A facility owned or operated by the NFL or any League company. Put simply, the League, the Players Association, and law enforcement authorities urge you to recognize that you must not possess a gun or other weapon at any time you are performing any service for your team or the NFL.”

Belcher violated this policy when he took the gun to the sports complex. I’m not trying to be glib or cute...just pointing out that policies and laws cannot stop people from homocidal behaviour. He shot the woman 9 times...I imagine that lack of a gun would not have stopped his rage. He could have used any variety of weapons (to include his fists) to attack her.

Its a terrible tragedy...which equals ‘opportunity’ to people like Costas. It is fairly rare for legally posessed guns to be used in a murder...and Costas is smart enough to be able to look that up. He just choses not to.

Rush's point on his show today applies common sense; (paraphrasing) unless in a rare fluke circumstance, a firearm will not kill anybody or anything by itself. Just like a knife, a stone, a club etc., any weapon used on a personal level has to first be in the hands of a human. It is asinine/moronic to accuse an inanimate object as the cause of injury to anything or anybody. Rush challenged any gun grabber to show him where a firearm killed somebody by itself.

This is just another example of the liberal left using the death or shooting of a ‘celebrity’ to advancetheir gun elimination cause. It is disgusting to see Bob Costas,et al standing on the coffin of some poor unfortunate soul(s)trying to get trackion their assinine cause. “they would be alive today except for the gun”. LIAR LIAR LIAR.

GET THIS SH*T OFF THE AIR, ESPECIALLY ON NFL GAMES.

I will continue to watch NFL games but I will boycot the sponsors if this is not taken care of immediately.

I don’t listen to Costas...If there was a debate between him and President Zero, the winner would be the people NOT WATCHING IT!!!

Here we are noticing Bob and talking about him for the first time in 20 years (and googling “Ndamukong Suh” long enough to find out he’s not Asian before we forget him again), so I guess it worked out for Bob (and Ndamukong).

Where is the best place to send an email?

help@profootballtalk.com?

If you go to the NFL website, the contact link says you should only use it if you have a problem with the website.
