Gun Control Advocates Send Safety Locks To Eagles Players Who Got Guns For Christmas

New York Giants v Philadelphia Eagles

A few days ago, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz gifted his offensive lineman with Beretta shotguns, each personalized with the player’s number engraved on the butt of the gun.

Yes, it took until the final game of the season for Carson Wentz to finally have some weapons around him (the Eagles are currently 6-9).

Two days later, a gun violence prevention group has also sent the offensive lineman a bunch of gifts: Gun locks. After watching that O-line attempt to protect Wentz all year, this prevention group wasn’t taking any chances on them protecting themselves with shotguns.

CeaseFire PA released a statement as to why they sent the locks:

“Our staff’s immediate reaction to the news about Wentz’s gifts to his teammates was to ensure that the gifts were used safely and responsibly,” Shira Goodman, the group’s executive director, said in a statement.

“We want them and their families to all be in top condition for next season,” Goodman said in the statement. “We welcome all Eagles players and fans to become our partners in working for a safer Pennsylvania.”
