Costas: "Mistake" To Give Anti-Gun Commentary During Football Game (Video)

Costas: "Mistake" To Give Anti-Gun Commentary During Football Game (Video)

Real Clear Politics
Posted on December 4, 2012

NBC's Bob Costas tells sports radio host Dan Patrick his anti-gun remarks on Sunday night were a mistake because 90 seconds wasn't enough time for him to "flesh out" what he meant to say so he was completely understood.

Costas says he should have saved his comments for a different forum, rather than during halftime of Sunday's NFL game, but did so because "this is when the Belcher situation had played itself out."

I think he said what he meant to say.

The bastard needs to resign.

If he doesn't resign he needs to be fired.

"Tony Dungy, one of the most respected in all of sports on our program on Sunday night said that one year when he coached the Colts, he had 80 players before they cut the roster down. 80 players in training camp. He said, 'How many of you guys own a gun?' And roughly 65 hands went up. Even if all those guns were obtained legally, you can't have 65 guys in their 20s and 30s, aggressive young men, subject to impulses without something bad happening."
-Bob Costas

What basis does he have to say such garbage? Personally, I'm in my 20s and I take offense to that.

What's more is this: Where was Costas and NBC when Obama was handing out Fast and Furious guns?


WE WON'T GIVE UP OUR 2nd AMENDMENT RIGHTS!!! LET'S MAKE THIS CLEAR TO HIM!!!! EVERYONE DEFEND OUR SECOND AMENDMENT!!! WE KNOW THE Globalists are aiming to take it away. MAKE A BIG NOISE!!!

I've enjoyed Costas' work in

I've enjoyed Costas' work in baseball in the past, but these comments were a disgrace. Using a tragedy to put forth your political perspective. Now he says it's a mistake that he made himself look like an ass in 90 seconds when instead he could've made himself look like a bigger ass in 2 or 5 minutes.

Costas needs to read the Constitution, then read what's happened when guns have been taken away.

I want to see a one-hour special of Costas explaining his view

on gun control.

I want details, facts, and figures on how gun control keeps people safe.

I'm sure an hour will be enough time but hey, NBC, plan ahead for a 2-parter!

Always willing to learn more on this subject.
