So… umm… yeah…

So, all across the gun blogosphere, people have been talking about Bob Costas’ anti-gun comments in response to Jovan Belcher’s murder-suicide where he shot his girlfriend and then himself.  Costas is apparently under the firm opinion that if Belcher didn’t have a firearm, they would still be alive.

I don’t know the exact details of the case.

Heck, the only details I know of his career is what I read at wikipedia for this post.

I do know that we do have a shining example of what can happen when a highly athletic man that’s taken more than his fair share of hits to the head (I go ahead and assume any veteran linebacker falls into this category) decides to do such a thing.

Chris Benoit was a wrestler who decided that time had come.  He strangled his wife and child before hanging himself.

I guess Costas would have rather seen Belcher strangle his girlfriend instead of shoot her?  Maybe that’s the more civilized thing to do?
