PRESS Pass: Bill Cosby and Bernard Demczuk

Bill Cosby thinks guns are the main issue in the Trayvon Martin shooting case, not race.

"When you have a gun, you may not realize it, but you put it on your person and you mean to pull this," Cosby said, motioning with his trigger finger, "and kill somebody. That's what you mean to do."

In an interview with David for this week’s PRESS Pass, the American entertainment icon also defended President Obama, saying his critics act like he is the cause of the country’s economic problems.  “[There are] people who are very quietly acting like they have no idea what [President Obama] inherited -- it’s as if he had the surplus when he moved into office and this is sad. … Because they know that they have misbehaved they know that they have taken America and slowed down the progress.”
