Well I guess a little thing called the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution doesn't have any place in baseball anymore.  What's next baseball players can't form a well regulated militia?

 No Guns allowed in the clubhouse

"I think every clubhouse had the no gun policy before," Young said. "They're just making it official. But anybody with common sense knows you shouldn't be carrying guns in most places."

Young has said he feared for his own safety before, but isn't worried enough to carry a handgun.

"There have been a couple times on the road in different cities," Young said. "But it's pretty easy to stay out of trouble."

Chris Young ended that story just as it was getting good.  I want to hear when a 6'10" clinical giant who probably eats children thought he might have needed to pack heat for protection.

Anyway, this sounds like a slippery slope.  Pretty soon you won't be able to  carry switch blades and explosives into a clubhouse either.

MLB Bans guns from Clubhouse

Titled "Major League Baseball’s Weapon-Free Workplace Policy," it says MLB "shall prohibit the possession or use of deadly weapons in any facility or venue owned, operated, or controlled by it." Included are "firearms, explosives, daggers, metal knuckles, switchblade knives, and knives having blades exceeding 5 inches."

See what I mean?
