USA Today Cover Story Examines Gun Ownership By NFL Players

A cover story for this morning's USA Today examines the NFL's gun culture, reporting that numerous players said that "in their estimation roughly three-quarters of NFL players owned guns." That is compared with 40-45% of households in the general U.S. population owning guns. On the other hand, NFL VP/Player Development Troy Vincent, who played in the league from '92-'06, "disputes that the league has a gun culture or that players commonly own and collect guns" (USA TODAY, 12/7).
