This has nothing to with the sport of NFL football. Young people with big money make irresponsable choices.
Like the guy from "Jackass" Ryun Dunn who went to a bar and drank and drove 140 mph afterwards in a 90 thousand dollar car because he was showing off and killed himself and a passenger.
The KC Chiefs player had guns all around the house. There are country white people with arsenals in their house in the rural area I live. They love guns. Mainly hunting. But also handguns. For what? Shooting pumpkins in the field? To protect themselves and their family against an invasion? They have every right to be able to do this.
Still the occasions of someone armed saving themselves and their family by being armed will always be dwarfed by the daily American deaths from guns by unstable people, children playing.
If Jovan Belcher didn't have all those guns around and was half-drunk he might have walked out in a fight with his girlfriend and cooled down.
