Skip to comments.Bob Costas: ‘If Jovan Belcher did not possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive’

NBC sportscaster Bob Costas used his weekly monologue on Sunday Night Football to discuss the fallout of the tragedy in Kansas City, urging viewers to move past the cliched coverage of the perspective gleaned from the news that linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then himself Saturday morning.
Costas focused much of his monologue on a column by Fox Sports Jason Whitlock, which argued that current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy. Costas said that although he often doesnt agree with Whitlock, he found his argument to be spot on this time.

On an episode of All in the Family, Gloria was going on about gun deaths, and Archie said, “Would it make you feel any better, little girl, if they were pushed out of windows?” Cue the laughter at the ignorant bigot, but it’s absolute truth.
Oh, dangit. Should have read before I posted the same thing.
And if Belcher hadn’t suffered from ‘roid rage his girlfriend and he might be alive.
Why don’t they ever prognosticate on how many innocent people would be dead if they DIDN’T have a gun? Or how many innocent people might NOT have died if they DID have guns?
Five will get you ten this dude was on anti-depressants.
If 60 million more Americans had working brains, we wouldn’t be facing another nightmare 4 years of Odama.
The best way to kill someone is with a blunt object, and that could be a great many things.
If frogs had wings....
If NBC had any sense we wouldn't have to listen to this crap.
Costas is a meat puppet.
when someone really wants to kill either themselves or others, they will always find a way of doing it.
I haven’t read the comments on this thread yet.
Just want to say that when I saw that little pipsqueak Costas on TV saying that anti-gun crap I was wishing he was in my room so I could throttle him! I’ve never liked him and disagree with almost all of his comments. He must have some photos of NBC execs in comprimising situations, as he’s allowed to do Olympics, Football, etc., with his inane BS. ....
But what if he had a pointed stick?
Or a piece of fresh fruit?
You could draw the conclusion looking at gun crimes that blacks shouldn’t own guns. Is that what Costas is hinting at here?

If hussein obama weren’t a muslim communist....
Well, Bobbo... if Nicole Simpson or Ron Goldman had a gun, they`d both be alive, and one former running back would be a boxful of bones right now.
Stay out of the political stuff, Costas. You are WAYYY out of your lane.
Again a bleeding heart excuse is used to diminish the freedom of millions of gun owners?
One sickens at how easily 2nd amendment freedom is simply tossed out the window by these fascists.
Maybe they will ban automobiles, which kill thousands more annually than guns ever do.
And Gloria, like every liberal, simply lies. There has never been a time in America when 60% of domestic, peacetime deaths have been caused by guns. Even during wartime, save perhaps the Civil War.
