Sean Payton Decries 'Madness' Of U.S. Gun Laws In Wake Of Will Smith Shooting

In the wake of the shooting death Saturday of former Saints defensive end Will Smith, Sean Payton is speaking out against the "madness" of gun laws in the U.S. In an interview Monday with USA Today, the New Orleans head coach bemoaned the "Wild West"-style violence in that city and the fact that deadly weapons are so readily available.

Acknowledging that his opinion might be "super unpopular" in parts of Louisiana, Payton said, "I hate guns."

"Two hundred years from now, they're going to look back and say, 'What was that madness about?'"
