NEW: Canseco to Write Weekly Column; Discusses Aurora Shooting

Thursday, August 02, 2012

Jose Canseco has kept himself busy the past few months. Now, on top of being on the Worcester Tornadoes roster, the former AL MVP has found himself a new gig as a paid columnist.

Canseco's new column, "Jose Can Say So," will run every Monday in Vice Magazine, this announcement coming just days after Canseco filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Las Vegas. His first column will focus on gun control, with mentions of the recent shooting in Aurora, Colorado at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises.

An excerpt reads.

"I truly believe, aggressively, that we have the right to bear arms. We should be able to carry guns to protect ourselves. Period," Jose Canseco says.

"The funny thing is I don't own any guns," he continues, "but I would love to have a few—an Uzi and a street sweeper and a machine gun, maybe. I'd love to be able to carry a 9mm on me in a holster and just walk around. That'd be great. But you can't in California, the state in which I live. And that's bogus," he adds about gun control.

He goes on to discuss how he would treat people that abuse the right to own a firearm.

"If you misuse a weapon and kill innocent people, you should be executed. And if it were up to me, I would fry the Aurora shooter, big-time. I'd do it like old times; I'd make it a spectacle and try him in public. Hang him, electrocute him, whatever.

"Maybe make it a Pay-Per-View special and send the proceeds to the families of the victims and maybe offset some of the costs of keeping him on death row and operating whatever death machine you strap him to. If I were president, that's exactly what I'd do."

For those that wonder what Canseco's qualifications are to write a weekly column, the controversial slugger has an answer.

“You clowns forget I am a two-time best selling author," Canseco tweeted, referring to his books about the rampant steroid use in baseball during the 1980's and 1990's. "How many people can say that?”
