Will Albert Pujols and Ryan Franklin still be able to deliver "firepower" despite MLB's new ban on guns?
You can take the boy out of Arkansas but you can't take Arkansas out of the boy.

Case in point: Yesterday relief pitcher Ryan Franklin expressed his disappointment in a new MLB policy that bans players from bringing guns into stadium locker rooms.

"There are a few guys that screwed it up for everybody," Franklin griped to the Post-Dispatch. "If it wasn't for the NFL guy a couple years ago bringing a weapon into a nightclub ... you've just got to be smart."

Franklin grew up hunting and fishing in his home state of Arkansas. He currently resides on a 500-acre spread in Oklahoma where, according to the Post-Dispatch, he enjoys shooting animals.
