A great response to Bob Costas and those blaming guns for Javon Belcher’s actions

Billy Bob at Hell on Earth has a tremendous, and powerful answer to all those Liberals blaming guns for the murder/suicide committed by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Javon Belcher

I have known 5 people that have killed themselves.

Two of them used prescription medication.

One hung himself.

One ran his Corvette into a building at 100+ mph.

And one used a gun.

One of the people that used the medication had a pistol in the nightstand beside the bed he died in. And the guy in the Corvette had a gun in the console.

The thing that happened with Jovan Belcher this weekend didn’t have anything to do with the gun. The gun didn’t make him kill his girlfriend. And it didn’t make him take his own life.

For jason whitlock and then the guy on Sunday Night Football to somehow associate these events with the gun is pretty damn stupid. Belcher was determined to make these events happen. If he hadn’t had access to a gun he would have used some other instrument, a knife, a baseball bat, a car, there are literally thousands of ways to commit murder and suicide without using a gun.

Blaming the gun makes this whole easy though doesn’t it? Why did he do it? Because he had a gun, of course. 
 
When you blame the gun, you don’t really have to ask the hard questions. You don’t have to investigate whether or not the head injuries Belcher has sustained were a contributing factor. Or the pain medication he was addicted to. Or the fact that he consumed alcohol every day. Nope, just blame the gun. The gun twisted his mind and drove him to the madness. The gun haunted his dreams. The gun made him do it.
Bullshit.
Bravo! The thing is that Whitlock, and Costas have bought the “stats” the anti gun lobby has been putting out for years.  This is how they can actually say, and apparently believe that handguns do nothing to make us safer. Well, I beg to differ, I have warded off an armed attacker with my gun, and here are some stories I wish Costas and Whitlock would read 
And I could post these news stories all month long and still have plenty to spare. Why would Costas and his ilk seek to ignore these people who defended themselves?
