“To-night we have blaming of the guns…”

Or yesterday, at least. at any rate…

What the fuck is it with East Coast sports media hacks and their hatred of guns? I recall a while back one slimeball named Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News blamed American gun culture for the death of Steve McNair, as if McNair’s death couldn’t have been avoided if, say, he had not been fucking around on his wife.

And in the latest installment, we have NBC sportscaster Bob Costas, who was quoting Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock last night during halftime of the football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles. I was going to comment on that, but just go read Tam instead, because she put it a lot better than I could.

    Like I said, there were two murder-suicides this weekend, but we’re only talking about one of them. Because you’re killed less dead with a bow & arrow, apparently.

    Wonder if we’ll be made privy to the results of a possible toxicology report and what may have been coursing through Belcher’s bloodstream besides alcohol?

    Naw! Blame the weapon. Typical treat the symptom syndrome.

    Yep. As this guy might say, not killed with a gun? No candle for you!

    I’m betting the answer to that is a big fat NO.
