    Since Jerry Brown for the Dallas Cowbows was killed this week in a drunk driving accident by his friend Josh Brent, we can only conclude one thing. If they had not had access to cars he would be alive today. People should not have access to cars. Same logic. Exactly the same.

    If you wanted to make a statement that makes sense, it would be the following: If none of the above parties had been intoxicated the nights of their respective incidents, all would be alive and out of jail. The Kansas city player was drunk to the point of being passed out in his car just hours before, and the other was a DUI accident. Alcohol kills MANY MANY more people the firearms, and destroys even more lives. I am not saying I approve of taking rights, Im just saying Costas is an imbecile. If he wanted to save lives, he would want to ban alcohol and cigarettes.

    Firearms hurt someone everytime they're used on a person. Alcohol hurts people only when it's not used responsibily. guns should only be used by those who are mentally stable.

    So you conclude as fact that he could not strangled her and hung himself? He could not have cut her that and stabbed her in the heart and hung himself? Wat about a hammer? Poison? Bob Costas is a mental midget with a mediocre mind! Get off the air ways!

    No Gun available to commit a crime? ... there is always a knife, a rock, an SUV, a lamp, a frozen leg of lamb, an electric cord, a rope, a baseball bat or any other device deemed hazardous when applied liberally to the soft parts of the upper torso or head of a human being.

    How is it that people who know nothing about the facts concerning the use of guns have no problem in sharing their ignorance with the rest of us. If a criminal robs a bank he's not going to drive away from the crime doing the speed limit because it's the law. Neither will he change his use of a gun to perpetrate the crime in the first place. Gun control laws take guns from only one group of Americans, law abiding citizens. Then what happens when an armed intruder enters their home? Will Costas be there to protect them with his dull wit? And to put a fine point on this, every country that has taken away their citizen's rights to possess a firearm have seen a marked increase in violent crime. That can't be argued. It is a simple statistic that I'm sure gun control nuts like Costas would love to sweep under the rug.

    It is his perspective. I thought it was well said do I support his view? Not really. Am I offended by his message? No not really. Not sure why it is even news worthy but thats just me.

    Costas is an idiot that will say anything to justify his position with NBC. Why was he not also not ranting about spoons that make people fat and cars that drive with a drunk behind the wheel?

    Wow. It is almost like he was waiting for a tragedy like this to fwd his agenda. So if there was news of a girl defending herself with a gun from her crazy NFL BF would he then say the exact opposite? This guy is a modern day giant. He didn't need a gun to kill...i only wish she had something to lvl the playing field. Maybe she could have saved her own life.

    To conclude the 2 casualties of this tragedy would still be alive if we had gun control is nothing more then an opportunistic injection of a political agenda.

    Extremely disgusting and extremely narcissistic Bob!!

    But since you opened the door to conjecture, what if she had a concealed firearm? Certainly a better chance at protecting herself. Same for stabbing victim Nicole Brown Simpson...

    Wow, thats a Cowards way of looking at it, instead of what it was! Plain old Domestic Abuse. If he didn't have a gun he would have beat her to death. If you have ever witnessed the abuse when the rage consumed him to a point of killing another person there would have been nothing to stop him. Wether he had a gun, knife, or his bare hands. She is the victim Bob, not Belcher!
