If we want high-profile people to speak out against gun violence, we MUST support them when they do!

Gun enthusiasts have erupted, calling for a boycott of NBC and the firing of Costas. In this sea of angry and fearful comments, THOSE OF US WHO WANT A SAFER SOCIETY NEED TO MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD!

Bob Costas did something brave Sunday night. Citing an article written by Fox Sports columnist, Jason Whitlock, Costas raised the notion that our gun culture and easy availability of guns may have been contributing factors in the tragic murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker, Jovan Belcher.

Use the links below to send messages of support for Costas and Whitlock. Also, PLEASE add comments on other websites, including the Los Angeles Times and Huffington Post.

It only takes a few minutes of your day to make a difference!
