Bob Costas Partially Correct, But Mostly Wrong

Bob Costas is partially correct when he decried the danger that armed young male athletes present to other people.

Costas added that this dangerous gun culture had affected the sports world, where “young athletes are disproportionately armed.”
To bolster his point, Costas referred to former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy admitting that about 65 of the 80 players in training camp owned a gun.

“Even if all those guns were obtained legally, you can’t have 65 guys in their 20s and 30s, aggressive young men, subject to impulses without something bad happening,” Costas insisted.
He is partially correct in that if by if what he means by "armed young male athletes" he means young black male athletes or just young black males.  They are a dangerous group of people. Including Jovan Belcher himself

But Costas is also incorrect.   Jovan Belcher didn’t need a gun to kill Kassandra Perkins.  He could have easily done it without a gun.  

The real lesson is that given that blacks vote themselves benefits in democracy, they are unsuited for self-government and as a violence prone group are dangerous as well.  Blacks are neither suited to the maturity of self-government nor the responsiblity of being an armed citizen.
