I appreciate articles like this but we on the pro-gun rights side have to raise other arguments too. Just saying that a killer could kill his victim with a knife or his bare hands isn’t a winning argument. We need to focus on the fact that there are a lot of vulnerable, physically weak people — the elderly, women — who are able to protect themselves with guns every year from linebacker-sized thugs who otherwise would beat, rape and/or kill them.

“but it seems reasonable to assume that a guy who shoots his girlfriend nine times had an anger problem that had exploded “

Exactly, and if he didn’t have a gun he’d have used a knife, or a baseball bat, or a candlestick, his vehicle, or his hands.
People that are going to go off tend to do so regardless of what item they might use as a weapon is present or not present.

I must be out of synch with the rest of the country but I don't understand why a football player gets this much more attention than any other weakling out there who abuses/murders those around him. He wasn't notable except for his ability to play a game. The rest of us do something productive for a living.

Am I missing something here?

How true, anyone with average or better strength and/or skill can easily kill or maim with their hands.

We taught in self-defense and weapon retention that if an assailant attacks from within 10-15 with hands, edged or blunt weapon you are wasting your time trying to bring a firearm to bear (especially from a holster or concealed) you had better brace for impact and use you hands and try to neutralized them and once you are in control or subject has been moved out of your personal zone then draw your weapon.

In a close clinch a weapon can be drawn and used but the risk is high it could be used on you.

And still no mention of African-American culture, (black culture)?

And that money making mix of Hollywood, black culture and violence?

Add in government handouts, illicit pharmaceuticals, fatherless families... A strange brew for death.

If only Belcher hadn’t owned a gun, we could be pimping the usual Sunday afternoon violence fest while making millions off the NFL Coliseum bread and circus show, without having to feel guilty about going on with the show on the heels of a massive tragedy. We wouldn’t have to trot out pint-sized mouth to give us some cover for honoring money over humanity. Meanwhile, count the guns in the stadium during the game, especially those guns devoted to protecting costas.
