Poo_Fight: Hey Blob Cutlas, When I want your opinion on weighty matters, I'll TELL you what they are.Either way, go fark yourself you pompous puffed up talking head./Costas, the fact that Nicole Brown Simpson was unarmed certainly helped her survive the attack from a kitchen knife, didn't it?

Costas has gained a lot of respect from me. Anything that angers fratboys is good for the world.
Pray 4 Mojo: Harry_Seldon: Bob Costa's was quoting a local journalist and nothing he said is wrong.Lots of people needlessly die due to our gun culture. This seems to be an acceptable cost of business as usual in America.Lots of people also die needlessly due to our car culture...so... let's get rid of those too.

Ow! That was my feelings!: Most anti-gunners actually help the pro-rights side by blabbering on about a topic they obviously no nothing about. So, preach on brother.
SkunkWerksOnlyM3: Quite easily defendedIf you own a gun, your position is defensible.
Rapmaster2000: I love it. Last year the square community was all "you tell 'em Bob! I am also tired of those hotdogging and showboating football players!"How does it feel when the Costas Opinion Piece isn't one of your pet-peeves? Will you ever agree with his Tebow praise again? Will you still love Lolo Jones when you know Bob does too?
Red_Fox: CrappityCrap: And how is a Gun Control law going to prevent a drive-by? The guns used in almost all cases like that are either stolen or bought off somewhere else in some underhanded wayPretty obvious man, if America ever banned assault weapons and handguns there wouldn't be MILLIONS of them sitting around in the den's of America's NRA members and red state dwellers to be stolen and/or resold in some underhanded way.
Hobodeluxe: GoldSpider: Enough with the "Huuur you need a license to drive, but not to own a gun!" stupidity.The day driving becomes an enumerated constitutional right like the right to bear arms is the day you can start making that comparison without sounding like you slept through 10th grade civics.just because you have a right in the constitution to own a gun doesn't mean you shouldn't have to prove your ability to own and operate one responsibly.
orclover: Ahh anti gun threads. I guess the Circumcision and Pitbull threads were getting a lil tired so we will have a month of these.
Orgasmatron138: This isn't really related, but I'm waiting for all the people who said that Obama was taking away all the guns as soon as he was elected to explain why he hasn't.
Pray 4 Mojo: BlousyBrown: libranoelrose: BlousyBrown: I have never understood the expression "don't be that guy"You're being that guy.I AM that guy.........except for the boob having and no penis part. AND my boobs are fantastic. I'm sticking to my guns on that.I think you should tell us about them...and use lots of adjectives./and big words.
BlousyBrown: I have never understood the expression "don't be that guy"
Pray 4 Mojo: BlousyBrown: Pray 4 Mojo: libranoelrose: UltimaCS: Pray 4 Mojo: What I do have an issue with is those laws being used to keep guns out of the hands of responsible citizensEveryone's a good, responsible gun owner until their life hits a bump.It's amazing how people can't comprehend this.Not as amazing as it is that people believe it.I don't believe any of it. My life has hit lots of bumps, but I don't own a gun......so i guess, BULLY for me.No gun? Uhhh... you should get one. What are you going to do when a bear knocks down your door?
fugeeface: this should be good/fark you Costas
Krieghund: What is wrong with you people that listen to Costas in the first place? I realize not everyone owns a Tivo, but damn, leave the room or mute him or something.
Pray 4 Mojo: mediablitz: Frank N Stein: mediablitz: I live in Montana. There are very few gun limitations. Montana has one of the highest per capita gun violence rates, and suicide by gun rates in the nation.Go ahead. Tell me how unfettered access to guns is effective in stopping gun violence?/that's how idiotic your "argument" isBy "one of the highest per capita gun violence rates" you mean 30th in the nation Link?No. I meant how often guns are used in VIOLENT CRIMES, just like I said.Montana is 7th. 71.4% of all violent crimes in Montana involve guns:Link Go ahead. Sort by "%gun"Montana rates 5th in gun related deaths:LinkGo ahead now. Ignore that. It doesn't fit your narrative.Two thirds of all suicides in Montana involve guns, compared to half, which is the average in the United States.LinkGo ahead. Ignore that statistic too. I realize neither fit your narrative, and discussing these issues frighten you at some basic level. That's the only explanation for your irrational anger. Now: do you want to calmly and rationally discuss this, or are you all about screaming and willful ignorance?I'll say it again... Switzerland has one of the most armed populations in the world... and a "gun culture" that rivals or surpasses that of the US... yet... there is almost no gun violence.Not saying that this justifies an armed populace... just that most of the violence problems are societal/cultural... doesn't matter if guns are controlled or not.
Pray 4 Mojo: logruszed: Pray 4 Mojo: There's a time and a place... this was neither.Classy Bob... classy.The time and place to discuss the reality of a possible epidemic of firearms enabled violence must be when and where nobody is looking.The time and place is when there can be a discussion...Not when one person is giving me his unsolicited and unquestioned opinion during an entertainment/sporting event... and taking advantage of a personal family tragedy to ply his unsolicited opinion.
fusillade762: Mock26: People need cars, people don't need handguns as every other Western nation in the world already knows.OK, fine. People need cars. We do not need alcohol. And more people die from alcohol related problems than they do from guns. So are you not advocating the prohibition of alcohol? Hmmm?You can murder someone with alcohol?
Pray 4 Mojo: There's a time and a place... this was neither.Classy Bob... classy.

HaywoodJablonski: Guns are for pussy-asses bed-wetters acared of their own shadows, nevermind dark people
Frank N Stein: mediablitz: This tired fallacy is a staple of those unwilling to discuss rampant gun violence in the United States.I live in Chicago, one of the most gun-violent cities in America. For 30 years there was a handgun ban, and gun crime continued to rise. Recently, handgun bans were found unconstitutional, therefore the city had to allow them, although the permits are very difficult to get. Murders have gone down a bit, but again Chicago is still one of the most gun violent places.Go ahead, tell me how handgun bans are effective in stopping gun violence/murder
Frank N Stein: puffy999: So, whether or not I agree with Costas, I'd say this was as good as any time to bring this up.Alright then. Why did he blame the gun? Christ Benoit proved that a roided up strongman needs no weapons to kill his wife and himself. Why not address the issue of concussion-causing brain damage rampant in the NFL? Why not the media's, including NBC's, role in perpetuating and glorifying the "gun culture"? Why take the simpleton's route of blaming the gun for the action of the man?It's been brought up. Now defend it.
Frank N Stein: NBC pushes their agenda throughout their program list, from Monday Night Football to Law and Order. Costas is just a cog in this.
