Jay Feely has responded to criticism over a Saturday Twitter post. The former NFL kicker uploaded a picture of his daughter and her prom date, with Feely standing in between, holding a pistol. Feely said that the picture was meant to be a joke, and that the couple, who have dated for at least one year, were in on it. The picture generated some controversy, as many people thought Feely was going too far. Feely, however, also said that the gun was not loaded, and that he treats gun safety and control seriously.
