Panthers LB Kion Wilson reports 4 guns stolen

By Will Brinson

Panthers linebacker Kion Wilson reported that four guns were stolen from the back of his truck in a Best Buy parking lot on Monday, according CBSSports.com's Panthers Rapid Reporter Jeff Hawkins.

Wilson told Charlotte police that four guns -- a Glock 23, a 12-gauge shotgun, a 57 FN handgun and a Smith and Wesson -- were stolen from his Ford F-150 on Monday.

The value of the guns is estimated at $1,700. Police are investigating into who stole the guns and, per Hawkins, the police report indicated that the door lock on the truck was damaged as well.

Presumably, Wilson has a permit to own the guns, because otherwise reporting the theft of such guns to the police wouldn't be the smartest move in the world.

The bigger issue for Wilson may be how the Panthers and the NFL look the situation.

Even if Wilson was legally carrying the guns in his truck, having the arsenal that Wilson did in his car in the parking lot of a consumer electronics store a few days after Christmas isn't exactly the type of thing that the NFL wants to see from its players.

UPDATE: The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person writes that Panthers general manager Marty Hurley said all of Walker's guns were registered and he was licensed to travel with them. Wilson also told his teammates that he was on his way to a shooting range, when he stopped at the mall to return an item to Best Buy. When he returned to his truck, the guns were missing.
