In recent years, athletes and guns have become a far too common occurrence in sports. From self protection, to home protection to any other multitude of reasons, athletes have felt the need to strap some heat when away from their playing surface. There are likely hundreds of untold and unknown athletes who carry firearms, but only a certain number have made headlines with their foolish actions with said weapons.
Unfortunately for the NBA and the NFL, it has players in both of those leagues that have made the biggest headlines. Their actions have not only sullied their own names, but brought negative attention to the leagues, their players and their conduct.
These 10, however, became notorious for their actions and in some cases downright idiocy with guns.
