Gilbert Arenas got in a lot of trouble this year -- both on the court and off -- after he brought firearms into the Wizards locker room. Teammate Javaris Crittenton suffered a similar fate after he reportedly chambered a bullet during the same dispute.
One might expect that, given the public outcry over the gun scandal, players would be aware that bringing firearms onto team property is a bad idea. Orioles DH Luke Scott disagrees. He claims to have learned of Major League Baseball's gun ban just recently, even though it went into effect last Summer.
"I've carried them in the locker room, and nobody really knows about it," he told the Baltimore Sun. "I know how to handle myself, and I stow it away where nobody really knows about it." Evidently. And while he admits to understanding why MLB would implement such a rule, he still has his objections.
"Barring a tactical entry where terrorists come in and hold us hostage, that's about the only thing that could possibly warrant me carrying a gun in the clubhouse. That's highly unlikely, and I admit that. But my personal belief is I don't want to suffer from the poor choices of others." Click here to see the Sun's full story.
