The same NFL players who choose to “take a knee” in protest of racial injustice in America are now turning their sights on the US constitution; targeting the Second Amendment in a new push to tighten gun control regulations across the country.
ESPN is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers -the team that started the divisive practice of kneeling during the national anthem- is now targeting the Second Amendment; donating $500,000 to promote strict gun laws in the US.
“The Niners have pledged $500,000 toward the campaign, which will advocate for legislation banning ‘bump stocks’ and other mechanisms that allow semi-automatic weapons to become automatic weapons, as well as silencers and armor piercing bullets,” writes ESPN.
“The parties are also pledging to join with others to forge a public awareness campaign centered on improving police and community relations,” the author adds.
The move is sure to raise eyebrows among fans already furious over professional athletes injecting their political beliefs into games throughout the league. To date, TV ratings are down roughly 20% from this time in 2015, as angry fans change the channel after weeks of player protests.
