NBA star and sports commentator Charles Barkley has it right:

TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley, saying he feels safer carrying a gun, says the issue in the wake of the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shootings is domestic violence, not gun control.

“There’s never a reason to hit a woman, touch a woman, or obviously kill a woman,” Barkley tells USA TODAY Sports.

“I don’t get into the gun stuff. Some guys have guns who go hunting. Where do we stop (the gun control) at? I’m not a hunter, but we can’t say people can’t have guns. … Let’s not make this thing about guns. Let’s make this about mistreating women. That’s unacceptable.”

Precisely. Belcher was a murderer who then took the coward’s way out by killing himself as well.
