If what is alleged is true — Raymond Felton waived a gun loaded with armor-piercing bullets around during a Valentine’s Day argument with his estranged wife — then he is in a lot of trouble. As he should be. Common sense tells you that is a bad idea.

The Brooklyn Nets’ Deron Williams, a gun enthusiast, said common sense keeps him from bringing his guns into New York City period. Here’s his quote, via the New York Post.

“I got my license to carry in like 26 states, but I’m not bringing my gun to New York City,” Williams said before the Nets practiced at UCLA on Tuesday... “I know better than that.”

I think most gun owners feel the same way.

Felton is expected to practice with the Knicks on Wednesday then travel with the team to Miami for a nationally televised game, reports the Post.
