NBA players told to leave guns at home.

"It's a pretty, I think, widely accepted statistic that if you carry a gun, your chances of being shot by one increase dramatically," Stern said during his preseason conference call. "We think this is an alarming subject, that although you'll read players saying how they feel safer with guns, in fact those guns actually make them less safe. And it's a real issue."


The NBA's collective bargaining agreement allows players to own licensed guns, but they can't carry them on any league or team business. Asked what kind of firearm rule he would want if collective bargaining weren't involved, Stern said: "I would favor being able to have a firearm to protect your home. Period."

Damnit none of my guns are licenced, where do I got do that ?

However, I do think ALOT of NBA players are probably not responsible enough to be owning guns.

Most pro athletes are borderline criminals anyway.

Are they allowed free speech?

Are they allowed to practice religion?

Professional basketball players are a waste of oxygen.
