This is something out of the Twilight zone.
A football coach at a prominent university has done the unconscionable, he’s banned his players from owning guns…even if they have no criminal record and are legally allowed to own a gun.
That’s pretty crazy when you think about it. This coach is essentially saying the constitution isn’t enough reason to exercise your second amendment rights.
The NRA reports:
Missouri Tigers head football coach Barry Odom recently implemented an unorthodox new rule for his players, forbidding them from owning a handgun, even it was purchased “legally.”
You read that right. A well-paid new head coach of an NCAA Division I football program is commanding his unpaid talent, err, “student-athletes,” to forgo owning a handgun, denying their right to self-defense, hunting and recreational pistol or revolver shooting pursuits – Constitutional rights, mind you – for, well, “reasons.”
More puzzling even, Odom said
