Is this college football? Or is this the remake of Young Guns?
Think of it as a warning, but there have been three handgun incidents in Florida in the last week. University of Florida football player Deiondre Porter was arrested for allegedly shooting at a wall where his pregnant girlfriend was leaning. And USF has now arrested a second player, Lamar Robbins, for allegedly discharging a firearm in the hours after USF’s victory over Syracuse. Robbins is also accused of lying twice to policemen investigating the shooting. He joins Benjamin Knox, also arrested for allegedly discharging a gun.
It is not the sole problem of Florida, however. The Utah Utes had two players shot in mid-September.
Is the potential problem just handguns? You decide. Washington State coach Mike Leachl says he’s fired guns his entire life, but for self-defense, he prefers to carry a battle axe.
