NEW YORK NFL greats Emmitt Smith, Deion Sanders, Michael Irvin, LaDainian Tomlinson and Marshall Faulk are appearing in a public service announcement in favor of gun law reforms. The spot released Friday is paid for by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which was founded by New York City's Michael Bloomberg and Boston's Thomas Menino. A solemn Smith speaks into the camera: "For the children of Sandy Hook Elementary." ...

“...Emmitt Smith, Deion Sanders, Michael Irvin, LaDainian Tomlinson and Marshall Faulk...”
Besides sports, what do these 5 men have in common?
(cue tune from jeopardy)
Just another reason why I’m turning my back on the NFL.
If they said the sky was blue, I'd run a spectroscopic analysis to verify their claim.
Buncha liberal jerks. I only say that because I know some of them.
I was thinking this might be players from the 60s and 70s and preparing to be disappointed. But these are idiot recent players.
He made several radio spots for a Democratic "Gun Rights" front group, called the AHSA: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Hunters_and_Shooters_Association, including campaign ads for 0bama in 2008.
Go to youtube, and you can find several of AHSA's commercials. No Pittsburgh players appear in any of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TURyJiOdD8Y
After 0bama's election, this front for Handgun Control, Inc (Now The Brady Campaign) very quietly died.
Sorry, but these guys are only football players. Actors are only actors. If I want advice on guns, I go to my gun dealer. He says “Buy lots of guns. Buy high capacity magazines. Buy military type weapons.” So far his advice has been spot on since all my purchases are now twice the value of when I bought them.
Where are their names on the Declaration of Independence? I don’t see Emmitt Smith or Deion’s name on the U.S. Constitution? They must be there somewhere?
FWIW 60% current players on the local team (formerly known as the Baltimore Colts) are gun owners, at least per comments from the coach on a survey taken in training camp.
They have roughly the combined IQ of a burlap bag?
Not to be undiplomatic or cruel, but isn’t it a major issue right now about NFL players BRAIN DAMAGE? So why should we take their opinions seriously. Athletes and actors are not at the peak of the intelligence pyramid.
Never heard of the guy.
Maybe it was him.
Given the Steelers close ties with Obama, I just figured it was one of them.
This is only because many of the NFL players are felons.
I’d like for Baraq and Rhambo to deputize these guys, and send them (along with the Million Moms for Gun Control) into Chicago next summer to clean out all the illegal guns.
Hmmm, I even live in MD. I just remembered that he was a thug. Hard to get choked up over his retirement.
Hmmm - Drug Abusers Against Guns - nice.
Strange how they can't get Black football greats to talk about inner-city Blacks killing each other in record numbers.
The Steelers don’t have “close ties” to 0bama, Dan Rooney does.
Wanna bet that members of their posses are packing?
