Bob Costas Uses Half-Time "Commentary" to Bash American Gun Owners

Thursday, December 6, 2012

As most of you know, NBC sportscaster Bob Costas has deservedly come under fire for his latest "sports commentary," offered up to unsuspecting viewers on  this week's "Sunday Night Football" half-time segment.   Blaming the tragic murder-suicide committed by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher on America's "gun culture," Costas shamefully exploited the tragedy in order to espouse his views on gun control.  Forget about the facts; for folks like Costas, the ends always seem to justify the means.  And as this week has progressed, Costas has continued to put his foot in his mouth, seeming to value "face time" before the interview cameras more than the truth about firearm ownership and usage in America.

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox has written an op-ed for the Daily Caller regarding Costas's ill-conceived rant.  To read the article, please click here.
