State cops, Steelers under fire over firearms party with assault guns

(PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS) — /SNIP/ The NFL has a guns and weapons policy that prohibits players from possessing a gun or weapon “at any time you are performing any service for your team or the NFL.”

The policy does allow players to use firearms and other weapons for sport or protection, but says “we strongly recommend that you not do so. Any weapon, particularly a firearm, is dangerous – especially so when it is in a vehicle or within reach of children and others not properly trained in its use.”

Some photographs show players milling around the firing range carrying firearms, with children – reportedly the offspring of some troopers – nearby.
