Players Turning In Guns To NFL Personnel After Jovan Belcher Incident
It's been a rough few weeks around the NFL, with an NFL player dying in tragic -- and perhaps avoidable -- circumstances each of the last two Saturdays. It remains to be seen how Jerry Brown's death affects the Cowboys' approach to player safety, but it's clear that Jovan Belcher's decision to kill his girlfriend and then take his own life is having a positive effect on gun-owning players around the NFL.
According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, "at least seven" players have turned in their guns to NFL personnel over the past week, in the wake of Belcher shooting Perkins and then taking his own life at the Chiefs facility.
One player even reportedly turned in multiple guns, apparently telling the personnel he turned the guns in to that he simply didn't trust himself.
Seven players doesn't even comprise a single unit of a football team, but hearing that a player gave up his guns because he didn't trust himself is ultimately positive news, if a bit jarring at first.

F You CBS. Keep politics out of football!
