    Nothing relating to prohibition. There were to many drinking at Lambo Field. thus, could have started a riot. This may would have stepped on his free speech rights.

    he chatted with the lean, bald coach who is a common tater now. sits with the group of 3 that talks about the game. his name is on the tip of my brain. anyway just about how to more better coach those guys to not drive impaired as the league has in place a ride system for all players. all they had to do was make a phone call. nothing like the week before, but he did bring it up, starting with "in the last two weeks......"

    Nugent: Bob Costas is dead wrong

    By: Ted Nugent



    As you read this, know that by the time you finish, somewhere in America a fellow citizen will use a gun to stop a crime and save a life.

    Opining on the Kansas City Chief football player who murdered his girlfriend and then blew out his own brains in front of his coach, the otherwise great sports announcer, Bob Costas, blamed the murder-suicide on easy access to guns. He lives in a strange fairyland of ignorance and denial.

    If there were a free speech penalty for blundering ignorance, a penalty flag would have been tossed at Mr. Costas.

    Ted Nugent


    Just as we shouldn’t blame forks for obesity, pencils for spelling mistakes or water for drowning, trying to blame access to guns for the murder-suicide in Kansas City is chainsaw-juggling, woodchipper-diving bizzaro logic.

    That’s how horribly out of touch with reality liberals like Mr. Costas are. Unless backed into a corner where there is no other choice but to admit that an individual is responsible for his or her actions, liberals will refuse to place the blame on the shoulders of the individual who actually committed the crime. In this case, Mr. Costas blamed access to guns for the deaths, not the murdering, suicidal maniac.

    Therein lies one of the fundamental problems with America. We have created a culture of rot where excuse-making punks have been conditioned to blame anything and everything on something other than the perpetrator. Apparently, Mr. Costas is one of them.
    The ugly reality is that in a free society, there will be those few zombies who fly off the rails of personal responsibility and murder others. But arguing to ban guns to prevent these uncontrollable ugly acts of irresponsibility when 99.9 percent of gun owners are responsible people is no way to run a free and just society. Serious-minded people grounded in reality understand this most basic truism.

    What Mr. Costas didn’t say and possibly doesn’t know is that 2 million Americans use guns each year to defend themselves from punks and thugs. Access to guns saves an incalculable number of lives each year. How about that, Mr. Costas?

    Just a few years ago, a drunk NFL football player ran over a guy and killed him. As I recall, the player paid off the family of the deceased and only did 30 days in the slammer. Where was Mr. Costas on this? Did he opine that easy access to alcohol and automobiles was responsible for this death? To those liberals who want to restrict or ban access to guns, do you also support banning booze because drunks kill roughly 12,000 Americans each year in drinking-and-driving slaughters?

    Reality is much different than liberal fairyland pseudologic. There are hundreds of millions of guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans who are the source of zero problems. There are also a few guns in the hands of irresponsible, often paroled gangland punks, who commit various crimes, including murder. I would much rather deal with that than further muzzle and restrict freedom.
    My recommendation is to not trust any fuzzy-headed goofball who would deny another person the right to defend himself or the fundamental right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Should an individual such as Bob Costas choose to be unarmed and defenseless, that’s his choice, but we must not allow his limousine-liberal views to become center-stage.

    We have more than enough gun laws in America. Another law or restriction would not have prevented the Kansas City Chief murderer from killing his girlfriend or himself. That’s the ugly reality that Mr. Costas obviously refuses to embrace.

    Freedom rocks. Let’s keep it that way.
