King: At least seven players have turned in guns since Belcher incident


During Sunday’s edition of Football Night in America, Peter King of Sports Illustrated reported that, in the wake of last Saturday’s murder-suicide involving Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, at least seven NFL players have turned in their guns to team security personnel.

According to King, at least one player surrendered multiple guns, telling the team that he doesn’t trust himself.

While seven isn’t a huge percentage of the total NFL players, it’s a start.

In the end, each player has to decide whether to have guns in his house and, if so, whether to remove the guns from the house. These are decisions that each player has to make.
