I will no longer watch anything that Costas hosts. I exercise the 2nd amendment and don't plan on giving it up.

Gun control? Maybe NBC should start exercising a little nut control instead. What the hell NBC?

He's more than entitled to his opinions, but not to use a microphone and a national broadcast to expel those opinions. There are plenty of talk shows and editorial opportunities to give his opinion on the matter, it shouldn't happen during the report of incident.

It is amazing how some media hosts, news reporters, sports announcers and athletes, entertainment stars become so enamored with their own sense of worth and importance that they feel the entire world is interested in their opinions.

He is not the only one to use his job position to spout right/left/cult crap on the air. As long as we, the public don't complain we will get more of the same.

Now, on the other hand there are those who believe that is exactly what is needed to save us from our selves and TV hosts are the gifted ones to educate us. Kinda like the TV preachers selling their beliefs.

Yeah, I don't know what's up with him. Millions of people of gun owners no one yesterday. In contrast, a lady killed her husband with a shovel and a son whot his father in the head with a compound bow and then stabbed him. Cars kill people daily.

However, freedom of speech is just that. The beauty of our country is it grants Constitutional protection for a person to be an a$$. I would have it no other way.

I just wish that more people would discern truth for themselves, not blindly agree with someone merely because he/she is on tv.

Videat veritatem
See the truth
