When it rains blood runs in the streets?!?!

When it rains blood runs in the streets?!?!

According to Bob Costas, Jason Whitlock and other gun control zealots, all the woes and evil that exists in the world begins and ends with the gun.

First we have Jason Whitlock, who wrote an inane article blaming the “insanity” of our gun culture.  Yes, because apparently firearms all make us raving lunatics.  He writes:

Our current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.

Hey Whitlock, here’s a revelation for you, BAD THINGS HAPPEN.  They happen because life is sometimes messy and violent and dangerous.  And no amount of gun control is going to change that.  The opposite is true in fact, more gun control equals more violence.  How do I know that? Because I can look to Chicago and see blood actually running in the streets in a city with a complete ban on carrying firearms.  All gun bans do is leave the innocent as prey for the wicked.

Guess what?  Criminals do not listen, will not listen…that’s because they are CRIMINALS.

Now, during Sunday Night Football’s half time show we have Bob Costas parroting your bigotry.  He would chirp your ideas for the viewing public stating:

That is the message I wish Chiefs players, professional athletes and all of us would focus on Sunday and moving forward. Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.

By all means Bob, let’s not accept that there will always be a minority who abuse something.  No, let us instead deny the MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of law abiding citizens their rights just because the media has over sensationalized a few incidents in order to pump up the ratings.  Not only is this insincere it is pathetic and disgusting.

And the conclusion that Costas and Whitlock both seem to come to, that Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend would both be alive today if their were no gun involved is spurious at best and an outright lie meant to further their gun control argument at worst.  One need look no further than professional Wrestler Chris Benoit to see how such an incident plays out when a gun is not present.  Despite what the liberal gun grabbing media would have us believe, double murder suicides can and do happen without guns.  Violence happens without guns.  The violence is in the heart not the handgun.

The truth is that no law will stop a criminal from doing a criminal act.  The sad truth is that even a good person may do something evil.  But that’s life.  We shouldn’t infringe upon the god given rights of the masses because of the failings of a minority.

Despite the best attempts of the nanny state, entitlement pushing, socialist leaning current leaders of this country, this is still America where we take responsibility for our own actions.  Pawning off Belcher’s failings on a handgun by Costas and Whitlock is craven and such attempts should be shunned.

    *** ACTION ALERT *** NBC switch board phone # 212-664-4444. Lets let’em know how we feel about Bob’s opinion!!
    NFL is a tax-exempt and nonprofit. Suppose it’s just another incentive the anti-gun government gives corporations to control media and feed us this garbage!
    Let’s address the real issue, which is mental health, not guns!

      Well said… but that is not the ultimate goal of gun control, and we all know this.

    Exactly what is our gun culture? If I ever go out to a mall or somewhere, I rarely ever see anyone carrying. While a lot of people own guns, it’s not like they are all out roaming the streets with them. And a good portion of all the guns people own are long arms like shotguns or rifles. How often do you hear about them being used in murders? As for murders, the first one I read about today was a women that set a daycare on fire and ran. Where was the guns in that one? Guns are not the issue. Take the guns away and then it will be a problems with cars, shovels and steak knives. Should we just be proactive and ban them too? Getting rid of guns will not suddenly stop crime, or people from killing each other. That’s been going on for the last 100,000 years.

    I would like to remind the anti-gun zealots that more killings occur in the kitchen with knives than with guns. Crimes of passion often result from whatever weapon is available at the moment. Baseball bats, tire irons, fireplace tools, hammers, hatchets, and yes even icicles have been used to kill people. It is the person who kills another, not the implement.

    Study after study shows that the availability of firearms (or lack thereof) has no affect on either the number of domestic violence incidents, or the number of these that end in fatalities. If a person is willing to kill, they’ll just use a knife, chair, baseball bat, frying pan, lamp, or whatever else is on hand. Reducing lawful gun ownership doesn’t reduce the willingness to kill in those so wired.

    The sad fact is killing humans is frighteningly easy with nothing more than your bare hands. Human anatomy. Not to mention with rocks and sticks and edged weapons, or common household cleaning products. Gun control is always about CONTROL, not guns. Humans are little more than violent animals. We have been killing each other since the beginning. Laws won’t change this, as good men need no laws, and criminals never follow them. Ultimately, the good ones will lose.

    I’m not sure that Bob said anything about gun control. He just said having a gun makes it easier to kill people. It does. That’s why I have one.

    The knowledge of Americans having guns kept Japan from invading the USA. What better example could there be.

    Having a gun encourages caution when provoked, but confidence under deadly threat, in my experience. In other words, both politeness and courage.
