NBC’s Bob Costas joined the show to talk about his comments on the Jevon Belcher tragedy and more.

Costas explained why he chose to make a statement on gun control at halftime of Sunday night’s Eagles-Cowboys game. Costas said that Dan and the rest of the NBC crew had covered the news angle on the Belcher story. Costas said that he wanted to spin the story forward and explore the stories that come out of this. He said the main problem was he just didn’t have enough time to explore a controversial topic.

“My mistake is I left it open for to too much miscommunication,” Costas said.

Costas said he wished he could have had a more in-depht conversation on several topics: “A discussion should ensue about the football culture, the gun culture, domestic violence … those issues should be discussed if we’re looking for some kind of elusive perspective.”

Costas said it’s “beyond absurd” to suggest everyone we disagree with should be fired. And he said the people who disagree with him are the ones who are saying he used the wrong platform, talking at halftime.

Costas clarified he doesn’t want to see the second amendment repealed. He thinks people should be able to have guns for protection or hunting. But he feels the proliferation of guns is the problem and people shouldn’t be able to collect too many guns and people don’t need semi-automatic weapons.

Costas said he was trying to talk about gun culture. “Among young people, there seems to be too cavalier an attitude toward gun,” Costas said.
