NBC sportscaster Bob Costas got an easy ride from Fox News populist Bill O’Reilly re: Costas’ half-baked half-time pro-gun control diatribe. Costas went even further than before, again, claiming from the git-go that American gun culture “almost always ends in tragedy rather than safety.” Costas came armed with gun control talking points, calling for federal background checks for private firearms sales, harsher penalties for criminal gun use, mandatory training and an assault weapon and body armor ban. “I agree with most of that,” O’Reilly responded. The Foxenator pushed Costas to choose between ducking a spree killer (e.g., James Holmes at Auroa) and shooting him. Costas eventually chose duck and cover. Which is exactly what he should have done on this issue.
