NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell fired shots Monday night that should ring loud and clear around the league.
Speaking between Monday's game between the Panthers and Buccaneers, Goodell said if players feel the need to carry a gun, then they should avoid those situations. Goodell added that if a player feels the need for a weapon then they are "in the wrong place."
The commissioner said that the NFL has a strict gun policy but must also take into account the constitutional right to bear arms.
Goodell's comments come after Giants receiver Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself in the thigh at a New York City nightclub on November 29.
