Former NFL Kicker Jay Feely is catching a lot heat for posting a photo where he is packing heat on his daughter's prom night. In the photo below you can see that he's clearly holding a gun but he followed up the picture by saying his daughter and her date knew it was a joke, and the gun wasn't loaded.
Many still believe that he wasn't being sensitive to gun violence issues that are currently being discussed in this country. What do you think - was it too far, or a harmless joke?
The prom picture I posted was obviously intended to be a joke. My Daughter has dated her boyfriend for over a year and they knew I was joking.— Jay Feely (@jayfeely) April 22, 2018
I take gun safety seriously (the gun was not loaded and had no clip in) and I did not intend to be insensitive to that important issue
