Commentary: Arenas' gun incident is no laughing matter

With his career and even his freedom hanging in the balance for a misadventure with guns in the Washington Wizards' locker room, Gilbert Arenas stood at the center of his team's huddle, made his hands into pistols, and pretended to shoot his teammates. Guns are no joke. The leading cause of death for black men 15 to 34 is homicide, usually by gunfire, usually at the hands of another black man.
