For now, it's enough to know they exist -- those seven NFL players who turned in guns to league personnel in the wake of the Jovan Belcher tragedy. Apparently they were so shaken by the impulsive ferocity of Belcher, the Chiefs linebacker who killed his girlfriend and then himself on Dec. 1, that they gave away their personal firearms. Didn't want them -- not anymore. Not after they saw what could happen. One of them, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, said he was giving away his gun because he didn't trust himself.
