Let It Rip: Gun shop sponsoring Little League baseball and reaction to Jason Collins coming out

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Todd's Guns in Lambertville in Monroe County is getting all kinds of attention after sponsoring a Little League team and putting the words "Todd's Guns" across the front of the jersey.  A new development in the story has the owner raffling off a zip gun to raise money for the league.

Some parents are upset.  Others are upset that people find this upsetting.

Owner of the shop, Todd Bruning joins Huel Perkins on "Let it Rip" to talk about his side of things.

Attorney Neil Rockhind has an opinion on the matter, and he'll be on the set to offer it.

Fox 2 legal beagle Charlie Langton joins the mix for a full discussion.

It's also worth looking at Todd's Guns Facebook page to get a sense of where the business is coming from.  (find it inside story link above)

Also on Let it Rip: NBA player Jason Collins announcing he's gay in a cover story on Sports Illustrated.

Fox 2's Ryan Ermanni joins the LIR crew to offer his insights as a sportscaster.

Dave Garcia, executive director of Affirmations, an advocacy group for the gay and lesbian community, brings his perspective to the panel.

And someone who knows NBA players and thinks Collins' timing of his announcement may have more to do with getting a new contract and less about being a pioneer brings his game to the conversation.

    The recent death of a man from Staten Island while he was being arrested by NYPD officers is calling into question a police crackdown on petty offenses to discourage more serious crime. Critics say policing based on the so-called "broken windows" theory can needlessly put people at risk and fuel tensions in the city's minority communities.
