A number of NBA and NFL players were partying at a New York City nightclub when a gunman opened fire, killing an ex-con and injuring two others, according to the New York Daily News.

None of the NFL or NBA players were injured. Among them though were John Wall, Russell Westbrook, Carlos Boozer, Chris Duhon and Kemba Walker, as well as five New York Giants -- Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Aaron Ross, Antrel Rolle and Chris Canty. The NBA players were still in New York, presumably after the players' meeting that happened Monday.
The gunman, clad in a white leather jacket, crashed the crowded party at the Juliet Supper Club on W. 21st St. by squeezing off five shots shortly before 2:30 a.m., police said.
[...]

In Tuesday’s bloodshed, the killer is thought to have fired the shots in a bid to get even after a woman was bumped on the dance floor — but her relationship to the gunman was not clear, the sources said.
Also in the club was actress Reese Witherspoon and her former husband Ryan Phillippe. Again, no players were involved or injured. They were just there when some psycho came storming in firing off shots. Which is extremely scary.

Can "I'm Not You " be removed from the post?  What is going on here with the racial stuff?

I didn't realize that Kemba walker was in the NBA, wasn't the draft cancelled due to the collective (non)bargaining ?  Then again, what can one expect from this site, other than a few laughs (usually unintentional, I'm sure thses guys are not comedy writers)

Every American has the right to bear arms read the constitution.  If guns were illegal only criminals would have them.  Yes athletes get paid millions just to play a kids game but they are also faced with many more dangers from crazy people looking to take advantage of them and obviously they need to understand how to use guns responsibly.
