Brandon Jacobs is no different. However, he has a pretty spicy -- albeit fair -- response as to whether or not he should be holding onto a gun in his own home.
"All I will say is in the streets for me, there is no need for it," running back Brandon Jacobs said of carrying a gun. "But if you come in between that door frame of my home, I am going to kill you. Hands down."Look, there's nothing awesome about shooting another human being. Ever. But Jacobs has a point, constitutional interpretation be damned: he is allowed to own a gun in the privacy of his home and he has the right to use it in order to protect his family.
When asked if he owns a gun, Jacobs added, "Listen to the words that are coming out of my mouth," Jacobs said. "If you come between the door. ... If I am out in the streets, I don't have anything to do with that. But at my house, where I have my wife and son there ..."
That doesn't make volunteering his willingness to kill an intruder any smarter ... actually, on second thought, yes it does. I don't think that Sean Taylor flexing his private muscles would have kept him any safer. I do, however, think that a potential media-driven warning probably serves to push future violators away from his private property.
