    NFL players share thoughts on guns

    A team-by-team sampling of opinions about guns in the NFL.
    http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn...c.php?t=494019

    I kindof think the guys who said something along the lines of "If you are going to a place that you feel you need a gun, then you shouldn't be going there".

    I never agreed with the line of thinking because it would eliminate a lot of players homes and communities.

    I have my degree in social work and unfortunately have had a lot of experience working with poor inner city youth.
    The problem is a lot of young african americans grow up lookng as guns as the only means to solve issues, because it was what was seen.
    Now I don't condone the issue, but I for one is smart enough to realize its not just an easy slam dunk case.
    There are lots of factors that go into this issue.

    I'm not 100% sure that carrying or not carrying a gun is a good idea in all situations, but I certainly can tell you what is NOT a good idea, and that would be illegally carrying a gun and shooting yourself in the leg.

    Well, It is a pretty sound philosophy if you look at it and apply another truism/saying: "Nothing good happens at 2:00 in the morning." ;D Out partying, clubbing, packing heat. Bad mixture. Nothing good was going to come of it, and sure enough..... At least take a firearm class if you are going to be armed. I'll bet plax holds the pistol sideways when he shoots it too. ;D I have never understood that. The sights are ON TOP of the gun for a reason.
    Tuco the world.....

    Re: NFL players share thoughts on guns

    Since the dawn of football, when has their ever been a time that a football player has benefited from or could have benefited from carrying a hand gun?

    Since the dawn of football, how many players have had repercussions & gotten into trouble from carrying a hand gun?

    Well unfortunately a gun is a gun, it doesn't matter if its a hand gun or a rifle.
    The constitution affords un the right to bear arms.
    I agree with you that it doesn't seem reasonable to have a hand gun in that situation , but I can also say honestly I have friends who are deer hunters, who often have a side arm who go into bars after a nice day of hunting.
    Is it necessary?
    I would say not at all.
    Also this is not in inner city chicago, but rather back home in North Dakota.
