    Say WHAT!?!

    They have to register their guns with their team? Seriously?

    However, Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said the team has checked and the guns are correctly registered to Wilson to travel.

    Hurney said Wilson was on his way to a firing range to practice shooting on Monday when he made a stop at a Best Buy and discovered the missing firearms shortly after leaving the store.

    The way I read it is that when traveling with the team they need to let them know they are traveling armed.
    If they somehow require that they have to let them know if they own firearms,I would say that they are stepping on his rights and it should be none of their business

    He wouldn't say if the firearms are registered to Wilson, citing the privacy of the investigation.
    North Carolina does not have official gun registration. Of course there is at least a partial paper trail based upon serial number but this can get fuzzy after an instate face to face transfer. I am also assuming here that since it took place in Charlotte, that he was at home and wasn't traveling with the team.
    Foley said the truck Wilson owns is a common target for thieves.
    Now that is an interesting comment. Makes me wonder if it somehow stands out, as a target? Getting paid big bucks to chase a ball doesn't exempt you from the law of stupids.

    That quote could also be a mistake on the reporters part, either mis-quoting or mis-interpreting what was said. Remember, this is the media we're talking about here. No guarantees he's got his facts straight or is printing them straight from the horse's mouth.

    I think they're referring to the Ford F250 in general. Not his truck specifically.

    NC does not have registration...other than the documentation the ATF requires of all gun dealers to "book" the sale and keep it on file only in the store files.

    When I read the local news article about it the comment about registering was from the head coach. It was such that my take away from his comment was that he does not know the ins and outs of gun registration.

    Let's hope they were only his "truck guns". Otherwise he could be in big trouble. :)

    The NFL is anti 2A and that is why I could care less to support it in any way shape or form anymore.

    From the NFL policy manual:

    “In some circumstances, such as for sport or protection, you may legally possess a firearm or other weapon. However, we strongly recommend that you not do so.”

    Most people can't afford to support it...ever price a ticket?

    Roger Goodell is a loathsome person and a huge hypocrite.

    I'm a casual sports fan; I catch sportscenter when I can and I like to watch games in my downtime. It makes me feel immature to say this, seeing as I have never met the man and I'm not a die-hard fan of any sport, but I don't like or respect Goodell. He's just a pompous jerk who treats millionaire adults like children.
