I am really upset over the news on gun laws today, (Bob Costas, is going to have his career go down as a dead beat.) I will try to get a video out tomorrow.

I just lost all respect for him.

I believe everyone is entitled to his or her own opinions, regardless of how ignorant they may happen to be, but as I recall, Hank Williams Jr lost his entire contract with the network and the NFL in a single day for stating his opinion, and he didn't even do it on their show!

Come to think of it, Jimmy the Greek lost his NFL job for making ignorant commentary, too!

I too think that people have the right to their opinions. But if they are going to throw their perspective around on a national issue, they should at least do it in a responsible manner and not by tugging on the emotions of people.

For me, I was faced with a guy with a knife at 10pm on a dark night while I was pulling my gym bag out of my trunk. He approached from the front of my car...."hey buddy you got some cash?". I had the luxury of having a car between him and me, so I pulled my revolver out at my side and moved down the car and backed up. His attitude changed, and it was "have a nice day" and he abruptly departed. For me, had I not possessed a handgun I may not still be alive, or I could of been severely injured. Sorry Bob, life is not a one size fits all analysis.

Fuck Bob Costas... He is a football comentator and I'd be willing to bet he knows shit about anything that has to do with firearms or firarms saftey. Just because a football player had a mental problem and used a gun irrationally it's now a gun control problem? I think not. Maybe if there was more interest in medical care in football and less emphisis on millions of dollars made so these guys can waste their lives on doing whatever they want then they would know how to live a peacful proper life. There are a lot of stupid things that happen in pro football that don't get in the limelight because no gun is used. Football players have raped, assulted and even been involved in murders but unless a gun is involved it gets swept under the rug. Hell Costas maybe if we cut off the index fingers of all football players then it would all be good????? This is as brilliant an idea as gun control. (sarcasm) People need to stop blaming guns for all their short comings and start taking care of the mental health of those that need it. Mindless mouthpieces of gun control like Costas that think being PC need to stick to what they know lest somebody "drops back and punts" their ass down the street.

I find it kind of ironic these celebrities that speak out against guns and the 2nd amendment are often protected by body guards carrying guns

BooB Costas isn't the only idiot, he was quoting a sports writer! which his name eludes me at this time however, later in the day "that sports writer" compared the NRA as being like the new Klu Klux Klan and he's still working....you didn't hear about that because the liberal media won't tell you

YouTube is taking 8 plus hours to get my video up....It is powerful.

great vid. That idiot Whitlock is a racist at best as well..... this dynamic duo is certainly full of holes. Or should be!

Amusingly, being able to spew that diatribe as a result of yet another constitutional amendment that he'd probably spaz about if someone mentioned repealing that one and stopping him from running off about topics he's failed to properly research.

I doube that man has ever met a KKK member, or has any knowledge of the reality of what that group has done, or he'd be reticent to make such a comparison between lynch mobs hanging people from trees for the color of their skin, to an organization of law abiding citizens trying to defend their constitutional rights from tyrannical government oppression.

So here is some interesting deaths data from 2009. This is straight from the CDC's reported information. Twice as many people have died falling, than have actually committed a homicide with a firearm. I'd be willing to bet that 99% of those 11,493 firearm homicides were repeat offenders or gang related.

If you look at some of the other data in that report it seems California leads the way with the largest percent of firearm deaths. If California is supposed to have the tightest gun restrictions, then should they not have factual evidence to support their legislation?

CDC Reported Deaths - 2009
Heart Disease: 599,413
Diabetes: 68,705
Pneumonia: 50,774
Drug Induced: 39,147
Motor Vehicles: 34,435
Unintentional Poisoning: 31,758
Falls: 25,562
Alcohol Poisoning: 24,518
Suffocation: 15,645
Firearm Homicides: 11,493
Intestinal Infections: 10,251
Congenital defects: 9,883
HIV: 9,406
Hepatitis: 7,694
Homicide - other means: 5,306 (knife, fists, trauma, etc)
Drowning: 3,517
Asthma: 3,388
Influenza: 2,918
Malnutrition: 2,680
Complications of surgical care: 2,616
Complications of Pregnancy: 960

I just went and heard Jason Whitlock's comment that "the NRA is new KKK". I think Mr. Whitlock also need a video.

I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don't have our best interests at heart

Don't get me wrong, my heart goes out to the families affected by the murder / suicide however, I compare this to the Tucson shooter and think they were both mentally ill. Because of our politically correct world we live in it appears your not even able to alert people of possible events. I've heard of a recently heard of a mother turning in her child to authorities that he was in a mental state of harming someone. Anyways...we as gun owners are being attacked from all sides with every crime where a firearm is used. We should all join the NAGR or the NRA

Let's face it...NBC, as a whole, is anti-gun in just about every way imaginable. From Bob Costas to Rosie O'Donnell to reportedly selectively editing Zimmerman's 911 call to make him appear racist. I wonder if Zimmerman can use it as part of a pattern in his lawsuit against them (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-20636425)

I was watching NBC news last night and at the end Brian Williams made a note that Zimmerman was suing NBC for defamation of character. Williams made clear that that was not the intent.

I just found the whole Zimmerman case interesting. The police initially believed the whole story and cut Zimmerman loose and did not press charges. Then the race card was played and people grandstanded and got Washington DC involved. Fired the police chief and spent God knows how much money in special prosecution and investigators.

But now that the initial police photos showing Zimmerman all bloody are public, everyone is back tracking. All the drama and show boating, just shows you should let the police do their job and they probably made the right call and acted within the scope of the rules they are assigned to enforce. The police chief should get his job back and the system should just let it drop.

Too many back seat drivers in the case and I can't imagine a court ever making a conviction now. Other than Zimmerman should of not have pursued when the 911 dispatcher said to stop, the bloody photos of his head pretty much seal the deal as there were no other physical witnesses.

Here is another case where the media should stop the nonsense and just report the facts.

A good report from CNN on the mess that NBC created in the Zimmerman case:
