Bob Costas decided to use his air time to rant against the evils of guns and started quoting Jason Whitlock.
“Our current gun culture,”Whitlock wrote, “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.”
“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. In the coming days, Jovan Belcher’s actions, and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. Who knows?”
“But here,” wrote Jason Whitlock,” is what I believe. If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”
Current gang gun culture ensures more domestic disputes because these individuals are highly inclined to try to hurt each other by any means. These are not church members we’re talking about.
Handguns absolutely enhance my safety the moment I have one, am trained to use it, and are fully willing and ready to use it in defense of my home and family. That right there enhances our safety.
If I am sitting in my own home I have not sought out confrontation but will press for it if a threat is perceived.
Lastly, if Belcher didn’t have a gun there is no possible way you can argue that he and Ms. Perkins would be alive today. That’s is horse-crap argument and is factually fallacious on several levels.
This is how your gun rights will be taken from you – one unwasted tragedy at a time.
