Sports Writer Seizes On The Murder Suicide of an NFL Player To Call For the Repeal of the Second Amendment

Home - by - December 2, 2012 - 11:38 America/New_York - 43 Comments

How many young people have to die senselessly? How many lives have to be ruined before we realize the right to bear arms doesn’t protect us from a government equipped with stealth bombers, predator drones, tanks and nuclear weapons?

Our current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.

In the coming days, Belcher’s actions will be analyzed through the lens of concussions and head injuries. Who knows? Maybe brain damage triggered his violent overreaction to a fight with his girlfriend. What I believe is, if he didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

    I saw this on the Fox sports site earlier.

    This particular ‘writer’ is notorious for a perpetual case of cranial-rectal inversion but it is typical of the banal , uneducated understanding of the constitution ,it’s founding principles and in particular the reason for the second amendment that you see in our media-fronted culture.

    This perfectly represents Obama’s America-the remnants of a once great Republic.

    He’s right, he should give up his right to bear arms. And he should self-deport to wherever the hell he wishes. Take every liberal with you. Make it a fun trip !

    Do people feel they MUST live in the USA? Who keeps telling them that ?!?!

    Those damn guns. They’d be alive if it wasn’t for guns.

    And while we’re at it, knives…get rid of ‘em.

    And blunt objects…ban ‘em.

    And rope…gone.

    And hands…punching, strangling…cut ‘em all off!

    Asshats.

    If he thinks things will be safer if guns didn’t exist then he hasn’t studied ANY history.

    What would bad people fear? Not much.

    Nature is and always will be “survival of the fittest”. The gun is an equalizer of over matched conflicts.

    What would he do if a group of large guys decided to take over his apartment complex and kick him out of his apartment? Or rape his wife/GF? Not much if he wanted to live.

    It would become a land of gangs and the police would only be one of them.

    Anti gun morons do not even realize how much they are protected by them in the hands of the public.

    Given this moron’s logic,the military doesn’t need weapons because they might kill foreigners in wars.I think people know we can’t kill tanks and planes and missles with rifles,shotguns,and handguns but we certainly can kill the people that have them,I don’t care if some stupid jock shoots himself because his girlfriend is a bitch.

    Living proof of just how stupid some people are. Is he trying to say that this NFL football player couldn’t kill his girlfriend with his bare hands or maybe a knife? Only a gun can kill? I think perhaps this idiot is the one with brain damage.

    The dude was about 4 times her size. He did not need a gun to kill her. She would still be dead and the killer would still be alive and in prison if he didn’t have that gun. Would this kind of suicide be better Mr. Whitlock?

    “… if he didn’t posses/own a gun, he and Kassandra Perkins would both be alive today.” This man must be an idiot. So he believes that a man as big as an NFL linebacker who was angry enough at his girlfriend to shoot her dead, wouldn’t have just killed her with his bare hands even without a gun?

    Gang members want the exact same thing. They wish no one had guns so these law abiding thugs could finally prosper with free reign and terror.

    Hey numbnuts, maybe he had a mental disorder, or maybe the culture innercity thuggery glorified by rappers is what caused him to do it.

    I’m sure someone or something caused him to pull the trigger, couldn’t be his own fault or upbringing.

    Again, the illogic of liberals, particularly black liberals, is simple stunning.

    So let me get this straight…because the government now has drones, tanks, nuclear weapons, we should completely disarm the American public because of the gubmints superior firepower?

    By that logic, obsidian head, a musket was no match for a canon or a naval fleet “back in the day”, either.

    But we should trust our loving, beneficent government implicitly, correct, because they would never harm us, right?

    How’s that logic working out for the black community? See, you’re folks are so bought and paid for that you can’t even perceive the level of your loss.

    This guy was a savage animal, plain and simple. It’s a shame we don’t live in a civilized society anymore, the kind where an NFL owner might say, “Sure, he can throw a stupid football, but he’s a savage thug and I only hire civilized people on my team.”
    Imagine if his girlfriend’s mother had said, “dear, the last thing you want to do is have sex with a savage thug in the first place.”

    This is what is supposed to pass for an informed citizen-what a GD shame he even lives in my country-1,000,000-1 this assface voted Obama-the Constitution??? We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution.

    Thank the fucking NEA for the nightmare we’re in now-they are the No. 1 menace we face.

    Irony Curtain is dead on when he says it’s a shame we don’t live in a civilized country anymore-it’s country where flash mobs rob 7-11s and Macys, where gangs of blacks target whites only in downtown Denver and our douchesac Mayor(now Gov) refuses to allow that info out and black on white crime outnumbers the opposite by over 39 times!!

    As long the NEA is ramming PC down the throats of our youth and they are seeing it reenforced by our sewer culture, than I believe I have a lot more to be wary of walking among us than I do of a drone dropping one on me.

    I’ll just keep my weapons bub and you can kiss off-fair enough?

    Let me be perfectly clear – I don’t want guns banned.

    But if we’re going to travel down that hypothetical road, then maybe we should ban football players from having firearms. Or people with anger issues. Or maybe people over 250 lbs. Or maybe black men. Ruh roh I went too far with that last one didn’t I? Even if crime and prison statistics back up my comment. Ah well, facts be damned.

    Liberals don’t understand that Genie can’t be put back in the bottle. You’d think that their pet project, street drugs, would have shown them the difficulty of banning specific behaviors and substances. Then again, logic’s not a liberal strong point either.

    Perhaps he could explain Afghanistan to me?

    Maybe we should really ban uneducated steriod hopped hulks who have been told sine middle school that pure silk comes out of their asses and every bad thing they do can be fixed.

    This guy ran into one thing he couldn’t fix: his own character flaws and bullying cowardice.

    I carry a weapon every day; never once have I shot someone or even really wanted to, although I see mankind at its lowest level.

    What second ammendment foes are really admitting is that our education system, lack of morals and personal reponsibility, and self respect stealing welfare system has succeded in “dumbing down” people to the point they can’t handle life.

    Enough with the sympathy for this S.O.B.; he’s a murderer, plan and simple.

    Well, he’s not very much of a sports writer is he. The man feels he has to defend the sport and the player at the expense of the constitution. I guess he’s not so different from those liberal MSM types that defended Clinton(s) and Obama against all those nasty Americans that sought the truth about their sordid beginnings and criminal actions while in office. God, what I would give for a handful of journalists who remember that they are Americas’s defense against despotism and are willing to do uncover and print the truth.

    I read this guy a lot, only because once he wrote a good one. (Why NFL owners and Coaches were trying to draft white players instead of black players.)

    Some Whack Job in Wyoming just killed himself and two others with an edged weapon, I don’t see anybody trying to ban steak knives.

    For clarity, consider this. 300 pound plus athlete, spend countless hours in the gym, probably on a couple enhancers. Scarey strong guy. He didn’t need a weapon to kill the 130 pound girl friend.

    If he hadn’t had access to a gun, he’d have found another way. There was a multiple homicide in North Texas recently where an estranged husband came to his wife’s parents’ house, killed both her parents, her, and was about to kill her sister and her sister’s child, but they hid in a closet and called 911. He did all of this with a knife, but someone with a gun could have stopped him.
