Guns With A Mind Of Their Own

Dec 3, 2012|

Bob Costas went on an anti-gun rant this weekend during halftime of the Sunday Night football game while discussing the murder-suicide of Kansas City Chief Jovan Belcher. Costas went so far as to say if we had more stringent gun control both Belcher and his girlfriend would still be alive. Howie vehemently disagreed with Costas and posited if we would ban knives if that had been the weapon of choice.

The as you know a a member of the Kansas City Chiefs went. Wind and killed his is it is girlfriend and the mother of his trial on early Saturday morning after came back from concert she was given him some grief and he just snapped. Had a gun to shot her nine times. In front of his own mother. And then then went out to why Arrowhead Stadium. Or the training facilities where they where they where the chiefs who were. About the worst team in the league this year. Trained. And than a year and in Provo Romeo for now -- copy of bench coach in Scott Pioli the GM both of whom used to work for the patriots -- he thanked them for you know. Given him a shot because he was freeagent from the University of Maine believe it or not. That's name's -- man Jo-Jo bond and -- Obama Belcher. And then he shot himself right now head right in the Brady and the parking chill bumps. So you know it's a sad story. But last night that last night the -- you knew what would happen as soon as -- as soon as as. You read the story or you suspect what was happened happened. As soon as you read the story and sure enough it did happen it happened last night during a halftime. Of the Sunday night Sunday night game. Between the the via. The Eagles and the cowboys Bob -- -- you know did a good job on. He does a good job sometimes argument that he did a good job -- -- -- he did a good job with the sixty World Series bring in those guys back keep -- good job sometimes but. It was one of those guys who should stay stay word belongs which isn't sports. But instead he has to go in there and -- and he starts ripping and the guns in the Second Amendment. Any and he says but it if if if. -- -- Belcher hadn't haven't gotten that both he and his girlfriend would be alive today now how we knows this I don't I have no -- I have no idea I don't. I don't know that I don't think judge Joseph man's mother who was mayor knows that. Mean if -- UP. He hadn't been able to shooter with a gun and get a -- that he shot or nine times. He would've not been able to he he he might have and how did OJ Simpson kill somebody. You know can -- and he's -- -- Lizzie Borden took an X right I mean there are a lot of ways to kill people the the abortion is -- people there was a woman I proceed to give me a story today about a woman who wore poisoned her husband mail me and he she Portugal poison she made him watch. Richmond between fishing and watches and put poison in the tuna fishing and orchards. But of course they have to make this -- -- you know all what's a gun that it's -- guns and gun and it. That I read this then you know this happens early Saturday morning it's it's on the news on its on its Saturn by Saturday afternoon. It's in the news Sunday papers. Now today the stories -- this -- is this player had a had a big drinking problem. He had a couple concussions. He was he was on payments. So when you so you got the -- which played a violent sport. He's he's he's drinking he's mix and what pain -- which is something you shouldn't do they tell you that everybody tells -- that. And so there their -- so there's there's other. Possibly contributing factors to his mental state would just say. And India and yet everybody has jumped to this conclusion that bit that it's the guns fall. And so now today you have some guy -- yesterday last might -- -- -- this columnist from this Kansas City Star he got the ball world. With this reflexively anti gun -- some of these liberal columnist just have. In the air in in their you'll pardon the expression arsenal all times you know whenever there's a gun shooting just beaches without another call. Like that's. And -- so he he was I guess he was happy to give to get the you know the national -- in the in the national air time. So he decided that today he ups this guy in Kansas City ups the ante. And says that the NRA is the new kkk. The how how is this possible I mean what do we know. Do we do we know if I drove on Belcher is guns were registered he had two guns at least he had that would he had the one gone. That he fired that he used killers two was girlfriend and then the other guy and he took -- a different -- to the and a to the training facility where were killed and -- -- so. But it's almost the guidance it's they always have the boy -- they never blame the -- Who who used the god state the why is it all why is it always why why isn't someone saying it was the pill it's it was the Mets you know. It was the -- you know they had a moral proxies. Winters saying it was the boats. Why are they saying it was the it was the game he was playing in -- -- I'm a bully me I'm not against I'm against totally against banning banning -- all taxis or football. I'm just saying he can't you can't single out one thing for why somebody does something. And then this and then this today this via -- the little guy in the New York Daily News. Mike Lupica is another one of these guys one of these he's a sports columnist who was moon -- sports columnist and that she knows all about the the real world so he has to come up with a call pointing guns talk but the guns fall beliefs. One hates it didn't somebody to shoot a ball and. Our own kill -- -- school five point eight thank you thank you for pointing that out yes he did he used a bow and arrow. Seven I want my guns that kill fewer people than Ted Kennedy's car. Yeah I know exactly.

We don't we don't I mean we don't know I mean the AD the Irish -- over the weekend the these are all. Is is not not really as good as as baseball is professional based Major League Baseball has been in trying to root out the use of steroids. People people -- on steroids have been known to do this. Why why does why why are these people jumping to the conclusion that if -- if there wasn't a gun that there wouldn't have been a that there would have been a murder. 18774694322. George your -- with Howie Carr go ahead George. Yeah and I guess what I've -- early go to Mexico and of accidentally shot himself in the leg right. That's nightclub. -- He's referring to Plaxico Burress this guy does say he was a great receiver for the yeah for the Steelers is that for the giants that he. He brought -- -- and illegal gotten into a nightclub and ended up shooting himself and with the president for two years now he's back with the now he's back with the Steelers you know what they say went back to the Steelers George. Expose throwback uniforms and have the stripes on -- -- as prison day it's. Didn't that it can't that the ridiculous -- and -- in that you know. KKK so I'm sure there's you know African American that. I guess so out. African American there in the kkk because last I checked. That probably didn't happen. You don't always talked about this remember that that there was a black columnist like it never the -- was wanna say Clarence Page but I don't think it's planned it's somebody else like thing. He he he brought all these anti gun columns like this guy for the Kansas City Star Mike Lupica. And so one day these punk kids in this suburban Washington neighborhood busted into his pool. And you know they they came over the fence and they were they were around in the pool at 330 at night just what he came out of you and came out of his house with George. And all -- -- you can't hear he was against guns for everybody else but he had gotten. It and it's like these guys in New York City every year the New York papers Romania thing on who's gotten permits all these big -- -- Bobby de Niro has a -- perm that you -- Could you be left -- that Bob de Niro. Much like him as an actor but he's gotten. Why is that what happened with Ray Lewis stated it's straight city that was what -- were a couple of years ago remember. Out there at that depth around there but you know there's a lot of violence in and sports. Unfortunately it's a Saturday. Goes together but. So you know. He -- use our budget is people shop and nightclub a few years actually got off but I guess that there are illegal they were shot that -- -- -- to -- support. But since it happened unfortunately. I know I remember one primary when I was a killer I don't leave accurately guy's name anymore there was a manager baseball manager keep them on the sports they. He I get a really bad team and the and it it really got to -- the guy obviously -- it was very depressed you know how we killed himself George. He drank Harbaugh like asset. Man it's.

They -- thanks for the call on the bank's first. And as well I'm a lifelong and all -- our -- in law enforcement over twenty years. And well really probably the most obvious. Statistics prove that responsible registered gun owners to cry name. Hard court crime and crime. Like against people raped and murdered access -- has already lowered carriers where there's not strict gun control like Bob in New York City. Washington DCX. Factor results and basically this really breakdown like that as an alcohol issue a drug that not in the to a big gone. And I'm Bob I Israelis just that would support and yet the -- you talk about that Jason whitlock. He's. If you want the tangible result on this matter and that's a joke. And I yeah that's right that's right you know I mean it the big statistics have long proven that in areas where there's a concealed were concealed weapon key areas is out. You have less crime because you never know who your take who we are going. Right. What we have. Problems are in places like DC where they have these tight gotten gotten bands they've disarmed the law abiding citizenry but they've done nothing about the odds. Exactly the ability -- and are human subsidies the memory of the. Yes -- I don't I know it's it's it's it's just absurd I mean the people who say this it's.
