Bryant Gumbel gave an up-front, blunt interview to Rolling Stone magazine this week, and it wasn’t all about sports. Instead, the host of HBO's "Real Sports" offered this assessment of the National Rifle Association: "I think they’re pigs. I think they don’t care about human life."

Gumbel was responding to a Rolling Stone question about the "Eat What You Kill" movement that he reported on in 2014. People who follow that philosophy only eat the meat that they kill and prepare themselves.

"There are few things I hate more than the NRA. I mean truly," Gumbel shared with Rolling Stone. "I think they are a curse upon the American landscape. So we got that on the record. That said, I'm willing to separate that this story had nothing to do with that. It's not a gun story. So I would like to think that I would have done it, but I don't know. Obviously, that was my first experience around killing and guns and hunting."

NRA News Radio host Cam Edwards told TheBlaze that it’s clear from his comments that Gumbel doesn’t know much about the NRA.

"I have a sneaking suspicion Bryant Gumbel hasn’t spent much time around NRA members. I could introduce him to mothers and fathers, veterans and active duty members of the military, law enforcement officers, doctors, and paramedics I know who are proud members of the NRA," Edwards told TheBlaze. "The NRA members I know value human life enough to want to protect themselves and their families from those who would do them harm. They’re not pigs. They’re good people."

Others went online to express their thoughts about Gumbel’s NRA opinion:
