During halftime of NBCâ€™s coverage of the Philadelphia Eagles versus the Dallas Cowboys, NBC Sports analyst Bob Costas made a plea for gun control during his weekly commentary on â€śSunday Night Football.â€ť
Responding to the weekend murder-suicide by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, Costas relied on a column by writer Jason Whitlock, formerly of the Kansas City Star, to make a gun-control argument.
That argument is a call for a ban on handguns. Video at the link if you really want to watch that fool.
Update 7:20 PM: Columnist Whitlock doubles down:
” I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously donâ€™t have our best interests [at heart].”
It’s obvious that Whitlock has no clue that gun control laws, particularly in the South, were designed to prevent Blacks from owning firearms to protect themselves from true racists. The NRA worked to counter that, even sponsoring NRA chapters for Blacks.
