Harrison, like a lot of people, doesn't think it's that simple. “Somebody goes out and kills somebody with a knife, you going to blame the knife?" he asked. "Somebody goes out and kills somebody by pushing somebody in front of a train, you going to start cutting off the guy's arms? You going to start blaming people's arms now? It's the person who did it who is responsible.”

Harrison says he owns approximately 20 guns and was photographed brandishing two handguns for a story in the August 2011 issue of Men's Journal titled "Confessions of an NFL Hitman."

Corbett asked Harrison if Belcher's murder-suicide made him reconsider his right to bear arms.

"No, no,'' he said. "I have my guns. I'm going to keep my guns. I'm going to use my guns responsibly and go from there. It's not as far as athletes needing guns [for protection]. It's the right to bear firearms."

And Harrison refuted the perception that athletes are inordinately predisposed to owning guns.

"It's not an athlete thing, it's a human thing,'' he said. "If you go and say, 'All right, now we're going to take guns away from everybody, and the only person who is going to have guns are the police ... if that was a good thing and that's actually how it would go, then that would work. But the two people who are going to have the guns then are the police and the criminals. ... That's not going to solve things. It's only going to cause more problems."

Harrison is a registered Republican, if you'll believe that.

This murder became political the moment MSNBC sent Bob Costas out there to hijack a halftime show and give the DNC's position on it.

Guns don't kill people. James Harrison kills people.

or here...it's a discussion board. it was brought up during the cheifs game, so i don't see why it's not fair game here. does anyone agree with him here? i'd be surprised to see anyone that does because it's an odd stance to take during the game and just in general.


I don't agree with him completely, but I definitely see his point and there is validity to it.
