What an idiot.
Takes a gun into a club?
I would have to think that was illegal.
So even if he is ok, the law will have something to say to him.

Obviously needs training in firearms safety. Perhaps the NFL or the Giants will hire this expert:

PLAXICO, PIERCE FACING CRIMINAL CHARGES

PFT
QUOTE:

As previously expected, Giants receiver Plaxico Burress is in big trouble. Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that Burress likely will be arrested on felony weapons charges in the coming days after shooting himself in the leg at a Manhattan club with a weapon that he wasnt properly licensed to carry.

As not previously expected, Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce could face charges of his own for allegedly taking the gun and stashing it in New Jersey after the incident.

(This would have been a great Playmakers episode if the show wasnt so unrealistic in its depiction of the lifestyles of pro football players.)

Per Vacchiano, police became aware of the incident only after Giants employees reached out quietly to report it. A representative of the team was planning to retrieve the gun and surrender it to police.

Translation: The New York Giants will do nothing at all to shield Burress from the consequences of his conduct. In fact, the New York Giants seem to be more than willing to help the authorities take Burress off their hands.

As to Pierce, his attorney told police hed cooperate in the investigation in exchange for a promise that he wont be charged. But why would police need Pierces voluntary cooperation? Burress has a .40 caliber hole in his leg that wasnt caused by a stapler, and his employer is actively assisting the investigation. Pierce has no leverage here, and his best bet is to cooperate fully and then hope for lenience.

For Plaxico, the law seemingly prevents much lenience. As we explained on Saturday night, illegal possession of a firearm in New York City results in a mandatory 3.5 year prison sentence, without exception.

And as to anyone who thinks that the Poindexter effect might prompt police to look the other way, New York City aint Surry County, Virginia. As one police source told Vacchiano regarding Burress, He went for his gun and fumbled it. And now it will cost him.

Was that Plaxico's cousin??

Lmao at least the kids were smart enough to bail out when the half baked idiot wanted to show them his second gun. I bet that was his last gun saftey class for the kids.

Turned himself in this morning eh.. I hope they make an example of him, the law is the law, and there is no doubt that Plax broke the NY gun laws.. right or wrong.. there are no technicalities he can hide behind.. prove that he doesn't have special rights and wake up a sizable portion of the athletes that think they are something more than they are..
