Do slugger Mike Moustakas, running back Jamaal Charles and coach Jeff Fisher realize they’re working for an organization designated as an enemy of the National Rifle association? Does Yadier Molina know he’s in the clear?
What the NRA calls its list of “National Organizations With Anti-Gun Policies” has been getting a lot of play over the past few days, and the Kansas City Star noted Tuesday that several Missouri businesses were on the list — including the Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams. (Oh, and Hallmark cards. Send a card, not a bullet.)
The list does not include the other major league teams in the state, the St. Louis Cardinals or St. Louis Blues. The NRA’s list says it was published first in September 2012, but with the amount of discussion regarding gun-related violence going on, it was only a matter of time until it got attention.
So, what put the Royals, Chiefs and Rams in the NRA’s, uh, crosshairs? After a series of failures, the state of Missouri in 2003 passed a law that allows individuals to apply for a permit to carry a concealed weapon . The Royals, Chiefs and Rams — quite understandably — didn’t want to encourage fans to pack heat at ballgames.
