It is the responsibility of all of us, professional athletes and retired Little Leaguers, gun owners and non-gun owners alike, to come together in an honest conversation about what can be done to prevent future gun deaths and injuries.
The nature of the NFL doesn't allow athletes to show weakness or injury physically and definitely not mentally.
