During halftime of the sunday night game between the eagles and cowboys Bob Costas got up on his soap box and gave his opinion about the Kansas City tragedy with the murder-suicide involving KC teammate Jovan Belcher. Costas basicaly said that somehow if all the worlds guns were gone
this tragedy would have not happened.

I beleve this is a foolish notion, behind the sights of a gun are the 2 hands of a murderer. When one pulls out a gun, points it at another person, and fires they are making a conscious decision to kill. To say that this would have not happened if there were no guns takes away the personal accountability of the murderer. The fact is this person made the decision, the gun is just a tool used. If not a gun, a knife, poison, or a bomb could have been used. Jovan Belcher was a sick person and made the wrong decision, quit blaming the inanimate object, blame the person.

I agree with what you said OP; guns are just tools...they just happen to be very effective tools. Guns allow people to easily inflict massive amounts of damage in a very short amount of time; so yeah Belcher could have used a lesser tool like a knife, baseball bat, or his bare hands but the gun made it a lot easier for him to end that woman's life.

Assault rifles need to be banned. Other guns should just be more difficult to obtain.

No weapon should be banned. Assault rifles especially. The 2nd amendment states the citizen militia should have the same firepower as the tyrannical government.

God this country is becoming fuging sissified, and disgraceful.

Outlawing guns will never stop violent crimes

Root of the problem isn't that simple

He's right. We should just magically take away all the guns so battles are fought with melee weapons and explosives.

Hey Mr Costas, sports announcer, what if head injuries from FOOTBALL was the big problem? Want to ban football mr sports announcer? If he had not been involved with pro football, he and his girl would most likely still be alive today.

Idiot
