John Salley ‘Always’ Carried a Gun When He Played for Detroit Pistons

During an interview with DJ Vlad, former NBA star John Salley talked of how he regularly carried a gun during his time with the Detroit Pistons.

Salley said, “When I was in Detroit, I always had a gun. Even though I was with my brothers and we had security, I always carried my gun.”

He added, “I’m not saying I was right, but I was ready.”

Salley noted, “So, for some people, we’re Americans, we feel safer with guns… This is the culture – People feel safer with guns.”


Salley stressed that whether people agree with his decision to carry a gun or not, doing so is part of the “culture.”

He said, “This is the culture, people feel safer with guns. I felt safer carrying a gun, at times, than I didn’t.”

Salley went on to explain that when he went to play for Miami, his wife got a concealed carry permit and said, “I’m carrying a pistol.”

He indicated he now lives in Los Angeles, where he does not carry a gun because he has not been able to get a concealed carry license.
