As for the issue at hand, I had an Uncle commit suicide with a gun, and know of at least one other person personally who did so.
And...the gun was the issue or your uncles inability to lead a productive life?

Just stop with the gun stuff.

Agreed, I've been saying for a while now that he takes himself waaaaayyyy to seriously and is always trying to parlay his role as a sports announcer into this over the top "I'm an insightful commentator on the world we live in" sort of deal, ugh. It's very off putting, but he's been NBC's boy for a while now, so they continue to put him up on that pedestal.

What exactly does Obama have to do with guns? This administration hasn't done anything about guns, they've ignored them.

Are you saying Fast and Furious is nothing? This post just shows how totally unaware you truly are.

You mean the very program that was started under the Bush Administration as early as 2006...Yeah so what exactly has Obama done about guns that Bush hasn't?

The answer is nothing and at the end of his second term it will still be nothing. By the way I am all for the government attempting to keep these weapons from being trafficked into Mexico. I am also all for the Ownership of guns in the US.

You can drop the insults, I'm not impressed. Fast and Furious was a tempest in a tea pot, or tea bag if you prefer. And it has nothing to do with gun restrictions. Which is what Costas was talking about.

Amen

I bet he's a real ****** in person too. The guy has nothing to do with football but we have to listen to him during half time. I think I'd rather listen to warren sapp or Michael Irvin instead, as painful as that sounds.

I like listening to Bernie during the Browns preseason games because he is so sloshed by the 3rd quarter that it is entertaining.
