Packers' Safety Haha Clinton-Dix Had Some...Uh...Loaded Advice For Bears' Receiver Kevin White After His Car Got Jacked
This may come as a huuuuuge surprise, but I'm fairly naive to gun ownership throughout professional sports. I don't know how many players are packing - legally or otherwise - and I have a feeling that even considering myself open-minded wouldn't save me from shock if I ever found out. What I do know is that the NFL - as an entity - probably isn't too fond of it's athletes publicly encouraging their peers to carry firearms. Surely my life experiences have been much different than those of Haha Clinton-Dix so I won't criticize him for using the method of self preservation that he sees fit. After all, "keepin' da heat on ya" may very well be sound advice for someone whipping a Maserati around a bad part of town. I just think it's advice whose volume probably should have been turned down just a little bit.
I can't be certain, but the multi-billion dollar brand that employs an apparent gun enthusiast might not be so understanding of his openness about his loaded insurance policy. Considering his stance on something as globally accepted as marijuana usage, the Commish who has proven that his authority knows not a single bound might have some slightly ignorant thoughts on the matter of deadly weaponry.
Now, Kevin White could potentially benefit from the suggestion of a division rival, but he could have benefited just as well if that suggestion were sent to him via DM instead of broadcasted - for hundreds of thousands to see - in response to an NFL affiliate's social media post. I don't know that Roger Goodell can do all that much about Haha Clinton-Dix outing himself as someone whose protection plan is easily triggered, but - with his recent history - I would probably keep the safety on so as to not haphazardly fire off tweets promoting gun violence.
P.S. On a more important note, I'm glad that Kevin White and his girlfriend are safe and sound after getting out of a senseless, dangerous situation.
