Gilbert himself seems to be a good guy and all, but allowing firearms in NBA locker rooms is a precedent that cannot be set. That would be adhering to the culture, thus taking a potential step back. The only choice here is a Life Long Ban for any player who brings guns onto NBA property. Add to that a harsh penalty for the club itself in the form of draft picks to increase accountability in efforts to avoid further episodes.

Sorry Agent Zero, but you ought to know better. Guns are no joke.
