After a couple of days of horrendous publicity on the Internet and elsewhere, Bob Costas came out yesterday with a statement that was read by one of his representatives. Apparently Bob doesn’t want to come out and speak in person, so he’s hiding behind a publicist. Costas is now infamous for the gun control commercial he made on Sunday Night Football this week in the middle of halftime. Viewers were shocked, not used to hearing editorials on gun control while trying to enjoy a sporting event. In the statement, the representative mentioned that Bob Costas actually supports lawful gun ownership for hunting, and in controlled environments.
So basically, it’s much worse than we thought folks! Bob Costas is for complete Canada-style banning of firearms, except for hunting and controlled situations. Gee Bob, I thought we were living in America — but maybe you’d prefer Nazi Germany?
I don’t think I need to remind you folks that the 2nd amendment has absolutely NOTHING to do with hunting. That is a complete straw man argument. The 2nd amendment exists to protect the citizens from their government. An unarmed populace is a week populace, and can be ruled easily by a tyrant. President Obama would love nothing more than to make sure that he can take absolute control of this nation, and push his particular flavor of Obama-Kool-Aid on all of us. Disarming the American public will be the first step down that path.
In Nazi Germany when they came to round up guns and throw the Jews into camps, most people went along easily without protest, and died easily. A select few chose the other option, which was to die hard. Don’t die easily when they come for your guns, my friends….
