On MSNBC, Bob Costas criticizes
“Wild West, Dirty Harry” gun
culture in America

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/5/2012 11:07:36 AM

On MSNBC last night Bob Costas tried to clarify his remarks on gun control in an interview with host Lawrence O’Donnell, but moved into more controversial territory regarding the right to own guns in America. Costas was defensive about his brief discussion of guns in the Sunday Night Football broadcast where he read aloud a portion of a controversial column by sportswriter Jason Whitlock about gun control. Costas insisted that he wasn’t talking about the Second Amendment, but rather the “gun culture” in America. “It demonstrates itself in the Wild West, Dirty Harry mentality

Comments:
He just keeps digging that hole deeper. He actually believes that if there were armed people in the theater in Aurora it wouldn´t have made a difference? What an incredibly moronic statement. All the body armor in the world couldn´t have protected him from a shot in the head.

American history is undoubtedly tied to the influence of guns, from our Independence, to our Constitution, to any sense of defense of our liberties from both domestic and international threats.

Costas is right in that we are existentially a gun culture, just as we used to be a free enterprise meritocracy, but like many liberals he along with the rest of the elite ruling/influence class have determined they know better than you and wish to regulate everything that built our successes right out of existence.

Actually, no one does watch MSNBC.

And as for Tony Dungy´s team, not only CAN you have that many gunowners and NOT have something bad happen..... you DID.

The Colts haven´t had this sort of issue issue.

Maybe if you don´t encourage athletes to identify with thugs, they won´t act like thugs. Just sayin´...

You have to wonder if these liberals ever try to really think through their ideas. Including probable and possible long term consequences. Or do they just voice whatever thought pops into their heads, thinking the idea is worthy of serious consideration for no other reason than their own sense of self importance?

/as for legal carry, for the most part they don´t hand out permits like candy, maybe Costas should attend a training class or two

Dirty Harry is a white guy. Does that mean it´s racist when a black guy commits murder and suicide? How about the gang-banger mentality in our urban warrens? I bet Costas would be horrified if someone had said that!

...I think #12 has his thinking cap on. Sports reporters are libs like news reporters. They are cowards. In the case of football, they refuse to even look at the thug gangsta culture permeating the sport. My goodness, just look in the stands of any football game. They refuse to investigate the concussion thing. They refuse to report anything which might jeapordize their access to their gravy train. They knew about the steroids in baseball. They knew about Tiger Woods philandering. Bob is trying to deflect attention away from the root problem with the liberal dodge of gun laws because he knows that story will be proliferated and not hurt his access to the locker room.

There is a Facebook posting of an NBC Sports PR photo of Bob Costas with O.J. Simpson. O.J. did not use a gun to kill two people, yet Lil Bob never called for knife control, especially not on an NBC sports broadcast.

Costas. I know what you´re thinking. "Did Dirty Harry fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, Costas, in all this excitement Dirty Harry kind of lost track himself. But being as that was a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, Costas, you´ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, Costas?

FTA: "people who actually believe that if a number of people were armed in the theater in Aurora, they would have been able to take down this nut-job in body armor and military style artillery,”
Costa does not have even the basic facts straight. The loon in Colorado in the theater was NOT wearing any body armor, only the stupid press thought that a "tactical vest" is armor, when it is just a vest with a lot of pockets and attach points.

I guarantee one or two citizens firing back at this violent lunatic would have stopped that violence with much less death and injury than actually occurred. That Costa doesn´t get this shows that he is a cowardly fool. I know many average skilled shooters that could have made the difference on that night. No superhuman skills required.

When Costas talks about Wild West, Dirty Harry I thought he was talking about Dirty Harry Reid. If you look at a picture of Harry Reid with those small spectacles he wears he looks just like some weaselly old creepy banker from the Old West.

I´m really not seeing a rash of heavily armed rural red neck killings lately.

Seems like more of a city thing.

Maybe even a black city thing.

Am I allowed to notice that ?

I mean we´ve all got guns out here but we´ve always had them. We use every kind of dangerous tool you can imagine but what kind of idiot blames the tools ?

Just as so few watch MSNBC (how to they keep afloat without Microsoft´s money, anyway?), almost nobody watches Costas anymore and certainly no one cares what he says.

This is just his attempt to curry attention for his has-been career from his lefty friends. He´ll ride this a while, then be (properly) ignored again.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."
