OK I need to vent.........

I'm a big NFL fan. I really, really, really enjoy watching NFL football. I look forward to the season every year. I'm no statistician of the game and dont do fantasy football, I just like watching the games. It is a time for me to forget about all of life's daily pressures, just like going to the flying field.

Well, I was enjoying watching Sunday Night Football last night when during the halftime, Bob Costas decided to use the prime time national stage of the NFL to spout his crappy anti-gun political view (in response to the tragic murder-suicide involving a Kansas City Chiefs player). I have absolutely no issue with Costas being anti-gun, he is entitled to dislike guns, but I deplore the fact that he decided to use the NFL prime time show for his political soap box. It was not the time and certainly not the place. If I want political commentary and opinions, I will search it out on my own time. I certainly do NOT want it forced on me during a sporting event.

I am disgusted that every single facet of our lives has had politics forced into it.

Rant off.

I'm glad I missed that. I've never been much of a Costas fan anyway, but that finishes him off in my book.

I agree that, although the event was loosely-related, it would have served Bob Costas better to mention the tragedy but leave opinion out of it. Personally, not mentioning it at all would have been fine too

Sent this first thing this morning to NBC Sports:

Good morning,
As a professional in the firearms industry I find Mr Costas statements during halftime to be wholly reprehensible, reckless and irresponsible.
Why is it uninformed and ignorant individuals and organizations continue to put blame on a mechanical device for a human beings actions?
Mr Belcher clearly had other problems beside owning a firearm.
How about Mr Costas retract his ill informed and ignorant statements and address the real issue?
That issue would be the mental health and substance abuse issues that seem to run so very rampant in the NFL.
I would be happy to discuss this matter with Mr Costas or any other party concerned.
Thank you for your consideration and feel free to contact me.

right on. Or the guy that just killed his dad w/ a bow and arrow. Nobody ever gets stabbed or beaten to death either.

Seems when Democrat Gabrielle Giffords was shot, it was by one of her volunteer workers.

It also seems the Obama voters are doing most of the killing.

How about a law allowing only GOP members to be armed?

Media blaming the bullet for the holes in the walls. Read on.

I heard a news story on the radio today. Someone fired shots at a union hall from outside while a meeting was going on. The news announcer on the radio said: "Nobody was hurt, but several windows were broken and several bullets lodged themselves in the walls".

Really?

"...several bullets lodged themselves..."

I personally would never have even imagined that a bullet could lodge ITSELF anywhere. I thought it would take action from an outside source to cause a bullet to be lodged in a wall. You know, like from a shooter?

Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.
