Costas: Words Matter

Bob Costas last Sunday:

Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.
Bob Costas today:

 "Domestic violence is part of it. Drugs and alcohol could be part of it," Costas said. "And I didn't say anything specifically about gun-control legislation or the Second Amendment. I don't want to repeal the Second Amendment. I think we should have responsible gun control, but that wouldn't prohibit somebody from carrying a gun."
You would think that someone who spends his career talking would take the time to understand the words that come out of his own mouth.  The whole basis of the "gun-control" lobby labors far and wide to suggest that guns only kill, and never protect.  His comments played right into their argument.
