Statement from Brady Campaign
Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, issued the following statement today about the sentencing of Washington Wizards basketball player Gilbert Arenas:
"The fact that Gilbert Arenas spent much of the season involved with courts of law instead of basketball courts should be a cautionary tale for professional athletes - and all of us. Guns are not toys or something joke about. Violations of gun laws need to be treated very seriously. This is the second time Mr. Arenas violated a gun law and jail time would have been an appropriate penalty. As a high profile role model, Mr. Arenas needs to spend his time on probation and afterwards speaking out about gun violence to young people in and around the District of Columbia, as well as the nation."
