DALLAS COWBOY charged with intoxication manslaughter… I expect Bob Costas to demand that people surrender their
firearms automobiles, because obviously, the death of this young man was facilitated by the other man’s ownership of an automobile – which clearly made him drive drunk. Mr Costas later clarified his position on Car Control saying:
“Here’s where I stand: I do not want to see the
Second Amendmentcar ownership repealed. … People should be allowed to own gunscars for their own protectionconvenience. Obviously, those who are huntersdrivers … Access to gunscars is too easy in some cases. I don’t see any reason a citizen should be able to armequip himself in some states in ways only police or military should — to have a virtual militia [by] mail orderdrunken deathrace [by] order or gunfrom car shows. Why do you need a semi-automatic transmission weaponvehicle? What possible use is there? … Whitlock wrote about a guncar culture. That’s what I was focusing on.”
While it is sad that this young man ruined his life and ended the life of his friend, I doubt that the intellectual inconsistency of Bob Costas – or any other liberal – will lead them to capitalize on the untimely death of the drunk driver’s victim with such a cynical, thoughtless argument.
