Ladies and gentlemen.
If I may bring to your attention that in the 5 pages of this thread, no one has mentioned that in the realm of politics, the media has the obligation to offer both sides equal time on an issue (though not legally, but morally).

They provided Mr Costas with time, I urge that NBC provide Wayne LaPierre the same amount of time at the same time period that Mr. Costas had his say.

Should enough e-mails be sent...........

I myself am a victim of a stabbing. My right ventricle and left lung was pierced by a butchers knife, when I was 19. A pericardial tamponade flatlined me on the operating room table. My heart was restarted manually.

I take firearm ownership very personally, as I've seen first hand, that one person with a knife (2 knives in this case) can paralyze a group of people and force the action in his favor.

Molon Laabe, Mr. Costas.

I thought it was poor taste to include that in the NBC halftime program.
Well said.

The CCW people in my life are the MOST responsible, LEAST hot headed, and MOST likely to walk away from a problem.

I'm sure I'm not alone here when I say that having a gun on my hip makes me less inclined to engage anyone who's out looking for trouble.

I'll also go out on a limb as say I'm pretty sure the supposed fallen hero athlete was not in LEGAL possession of a firearm.

My email to the NRA:
The NRA should demand the same amount of time at the same time period that Mr. Costas had.

Rather than speaking, present a slide show.
Slide 1: (An open hand) Without this....
Slide 2: (Image of pistol) This cannot kill.
Slide 3: (Image of Belcher) Blame the real culprit.

NFL and the rest of the professional sports can walk the plank - I am done with them all.
