Hey whats this guy thinking? Everyone knows only criminals and people of real importance can carry firearms. Someone thinking they can carry a firearm to protect themselves is just plan crazy, I mean that 2nd Ammendment was just such a waste of ink.

TMZ fails to mention that the cop recognized Lynch before going up to the three balck men in a benz. He has the right to protect himself. Does anybody recall Shawn Taylor or that Denver CB. How many pro athletes have been harmed just minding there own business. Lynch was also a target in a drive by shooting a few years ago in Cali. So the people making negative comments about him LICK FOOTBALLS.

He should've been punished for that hit and run a few months back instead of going home and waiting until the booze ln his system was out. He is a disgrace to our city of Buffalo. Heck, most of these ball players make more than we do and have babies out of wedlock--they don't pay child support so their kids go on welfare--Eric Moulds is one of them---they get their hands slapped if caught with drugs, DUIs--pay the fine, do some community time, that's it. Why can't they be held accountable for their actions????

They should throw Lynch off the team.

Guns are cool, California is run by a Nazi who wants to ban all firearms. How are we supposed to protect ourselves if they disarm us? Being an NFL star doesn't mean you lose your 2nd amendment rights!
