    Turned the channel right after I seen this, cannot believe someone uses a tragedy to push ones views on national tv.

    I am surprised there has not been more comment on this, right in the middle of sunday night football Bob Costas calls for illegalizing all guns. Would have thought it would have brought more conversation than this.

    Maybe no one watches football any more? Or perhaps with the use of DVRs and Mute buttons not as many people saw him actually talk?

    Though there is actually a long thread running on it else where on the forum.

    Gun control wouldn't have stopped him from stabbing her... choking her... beating her... etc etc etc.

    Bob Costas... please stab yourself in the face, with a spork.

    Gun control wouldn't have stopped him from shooting her either. He would have just done it with an illegal gun, and the bullets don't care about whether the gun they are in is legal or banned.

    Done.

    69% no when I replied

    I like Bob Costas, and still do, but only for his sports casting. Don't care what his personal views or lifestyle is outside of that. Needs to stick to why he is on TV. Guy made a mistake and he will pay for it.

    No. The guy had an opinion and made the mistake of sharing it in the wrong venue. Bottom line is that he is one of the best in the business at what he does, he just needs to remember what that is and stick to it.

    He did not call for the "illegalizing of all guns." He quoted someone else's article that stated that the victim would still be alive if not for the presence of a gun. Totally disagree with that precept, but that is his misplaced opinion.

    Nope - Rosie would convince them that sporks are a necessary evil that allow you to feed yourself while at KFC.

    I agree with that... Wrong time, Wrong Venue, Wrong audience. A sports caster has no bussnese talking about social issues at halftime of a football game. If he wants to do that, there are plenty of shows on the news networks he can go on.
