The #1 rule of gun violence is that "now" is never the time nor place to talk about gun violence.

Costas broke that rule.


We have to restrict the conversation to the 90 day or so period between jaw dropping acts of gun violence.

People that are capable of murder and commit murder for whatever reason are going to do it regardless of the tool they use. They always have and always will.

Just change your name from csx to Mr. Negative...

Because all you post is negativity towards the person starting the thread. It's a tired act...and it's not even close to being funny...

Clean it up


Of all the people in the world to comment on negative posts.

And I'm not attempting to be funny.

The aftermath of a situation that could have been prevented by reasonable gun control laws is not appropriate?

why not?

the only reason I can imagine is that it makes the "if the mother/baby/grandmother had a gun this wouldn't have happened" crowd look bad.


I'm not taking issue with what he said, simply when he said it.

IF he just had to say something last night, then the gravity of the situation would have dictated that it be the first thing he said during the broadcast. By waiting until halftime he sent the message that it wasn't as important as any of the other minutia that he spoke on in the pregame.

Beyond that its bad form in my opinion to mix politics and sporting events. Bob has got a number of venues where this would have been a wholly appropriate topic and one that I would have been grateful to read/hear his opinion on the matter. This just isn't it.

Dunno how this is quantifiable. We don't hear about the people who didn't kill someone because it wasn't as easy as shooting. It takes a certain sicko to use a knife or other hand weapon, whereas a gun is easy: point and pull.

Nope.

Look at the countries we share space with

http://www.nationmas...per-100-000-pop

If we compared England to the United States they are almost equal to us (per capita) when it comes to violent crimes when guns are excluded.

When you factor in gun violence our numbers skyrocket.

So yes violent crimes will always happen. The greatest country in the world shouldnt have a gun murder rate only slightly worse than Zimbabwe and Mexico

I only caught the tail end of it, but do you think just maybe it was planned into the program by the producers and writers of the show? I have a hard time believing Costas just takes such liberties live in primetime and in front of millions

It takes a lot less conviction to pull a trigger and shoot someone in the head than taking a bat or a knife and getting dirty.
