    For the sake of fareness Chuck Woolery is being praised in another thread for a pro-gun rant. Would being a dating show host not disqualify him from having any meaningful opinions on ANY subject which matters as well?

    But from what I know, Chuck Woolery made his own video, and didn't voice his opinions on air during the halftime of a game.

    What makes you think Costas is athletic? To my knowledge, he never played sports on a high level. He is simply a commentator. He doesn't even look remotely athletic to me.

    Edit...nevermind...I suppose you mean Costas also idolizes those who are athletic...

    Yeah, Costas is way, way, off. These pro-assault weapon ban rants are tired and trite, based on emotion, not facts.

    However, in the spirit of free speech, I am strongly against any punitive action against him. Rather, 2A supporters should counter his foolish and simple argument with wisely worded facts, distributed to the networks, advertisers, and the public in general.

    We have the Founding Fathers on our side, they can have Bob Costas.

    Let's see. Costas lies to 18.1 million viewers on SNF (link below)

    http://www.thewrap.com/tv/column-po...cores-nbc-666-park-ave-and-revenge-rise-67541

    and we can get someone from the NRA to rebut the lies with facts who may get on a cable channel with 800,000 viewers. Sounds fair to me!

    The part that hurts gun owners the most is that Sunday Night Football is and has been the #1 watched program every week, not just sports programing but any program. 18.1 viewers heard his lies. How does someone with the same type of credibility get on a program with 18 million viewers to level the playing field? Unless SNF allows a rebuttal guest, you don't. He poisoned the minds of people sitting on the fence of gun control. People like us won't be persuaded. The hard core antis are already firm in their belief that guns are bad. Costas poisoned the minds of all those who don't pay attention to this controversy and take him for his word because he is Bob Costas, a well respected "journalist" (term used loosely). The harm this caused the gun community can't be measured. He used his name and fame to lie to the American public. If he stuck with facts with his own slanted view, well, we see that almost every day. However, he just lied and painted a murderer as a victim to a gun. The murderer is the victim here? Really? Bad guns! Bad!

    Well, the ten (10) shot revolver may be just a 22, but is that better Mr Costas?
    What makes gun violence so much more terrible than any of the other forms of violence? Knives, bludgeons or just plain old hands and feet can be just as deadly.

    8 pages is plenty. Write letters, or make calls, and let the network know what you think.
