They'll shoot their eyes out!

Was anyone else kind of disturbed by the ESPN "Outside the Lines" feature on professional athletes who feel the need to carry guns? It's not that I wasn't aware this was a growing trend; something seems to pop up in sports news every month or so now. But I guess I didn't realize just how paranoid some of these guys are.

Luke Scott of the Houston Astros, in particular, (who's been attached to some trade rumors involving the Detroit Tigers) seemed like someone just waiting for a chance to show off what he's packing under his shirt and fire off a few rounds into some perp's ass as he's running away in fear.

And we can all rest assured that if Scott is driving through a neighborhood that looks shady, he's holding his trusty pistol right there on his lap. Don't try to squeegee his windshield, dude.

Of course, I suppose it's possible that Scott talked to his teammate, Morgan Ensberg, who was robbed at gunpoint and tied up in his hotel room a few years ago, and thought it might be time to visit the gun show.
