Costas uses football game to comment on Gun Control.

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox had this to say, and you can read the original article here.

    I’m all for free speech, but Bob Costas should stick to commenting about sports. Using his air time on NBC as a bully pulpit to espouse his views on gun control was completely inappropriate.

    Fact of the matter if Costas would have said something constructive about Gun ownership like; “The shooting at Newton,CT. could have been prevented by the mother owning and using a safe to secure the weapons.” I would have supported his remarks. It is an issue smeared in emotions and guns and emotions do not go together!
