TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley, saying he feels safer carrying a gun, says the issue in the wake of the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shootings is domestic violence, not gun control.

“There’s never a reason to hit a woman, touch a woman, or obviously kill a woman,” Barkley tells USA TODAY Sports.
