Re: Bob Costas air gun ban rant during NFL game

........of course being a life member in the NRA and on their e-mail list, I was instantly bombarded with all sorts of rebuttals from th NRA. To which....

IMO, my personal opinion, it's past time for firearms, in general, to be un-catergorized as the tools to kill innocent people. It's the person using the tool, not the tool thats destructive and that applies to any physical object, not just firearms.

The problem is, at some point, all this will directly affect the sport we all love to participate in and not in a positive manner either.

I think back to Kelly Macmillan and that fiasco as just the tip of the iceberg.

BTW, if this post flies in the face of the users agreement, Len can pull it. I understand perfectly. I'm really fed up with the tack the media has taken and the current administration has fostered concerning firearms in general. Just because I'm a responsible gun owner, CCW permit carrier and FFL holder, don't make me a second class citizen, in fact, it makes me a very scrutinized citizen.

I don't agree with whats occuring but other than a single vote, I feel powerless to stop it and, from the outcome of the past election, it appears that the majority of citizens in this country favor the current tack......

I guess we all better enjoy them (firearms) while we can. Legal firearm ownership appears to be a finite thing.

Exactly sidecarflip, i hammer can be used to pound in nails, but with misuse it can be used to pound in skulls.

Per Costas the great "If Jovan Belcher didnt posess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today". If I didnt posess a spoon I wouldnt be FAT!!!. These death's are a TRAGEDY! But that gun was no more responsible for those deaths than my wifes fine china is to my cholesteral. May they rest in peace. I guess I can believe he would take advantage of the air time and voice his ignorant opinion. I will from here forward boycott any broadcast this idiot is on. And will listen on the radio if need be. Most games are better "watched" that way anyhow.
