Costas Stupidly Stands By Gun Control Remarks

Idiot.

In an interview with New York Times media reporter Bill Carter that appeared in Tuesday's editions, Costas said: "I think most reasonable people think we do not have sufficient controls on the availability of guns and ammunition."

So tell me, super-genius Bob Costas, what new law would have prevented this? It's not like he bought the gun that morning.

And speaking of that morning ...

The night before the killings, Perkins had attended a concert downtown with friends, and Belcher had ďpartiedĒ at the Power and Light District, police said. It was unclear when they arrived home, where Belcherís mother was watching their baby. A woman who answered Belcherís motherís cell phone Monday declined to comment.

Detectives donít know what specifically sparked the argument between the couple at home, but a friend of Perkins told The Star that the couple argued around 1 a.m. Saturday when Perkins returned home from the Trey Songz concert and drinks with friends afterward. Belcher was mad she had stayed out so late, the friend said.

Sometime later, Kansas City police talked with Belcher after finding him asleep in his Bentley on Armour Boulevard. Officers determined he was able to drive himself home. Police believe he arrived home about 7 a.m., well before a 9:30 team meeting. Thatís when the yelling began.

Police said youth, immaturity and financial pressures served as a backdrop. During his college years, Belcher allegedly punched a dormitory window because he was upset over a woman.

Autopsies with toxicology tests were performed on both bodies, but results will take weeks, police said. Investigators believe alcohol may have played a role in the argumentís escalation.

Police recovered several legally owned guns from Belcherís home. Investigators were testing each one, and the gun found with Belcherís body, against shell casings and bullets they recovered.

"Investigators believe alcohol may have played a role in the argumentís escalation." Shocking, right?

Maybe Costas should call for booze control too.
