Plaxico the Gunslinger

2 posts in this topic

Two guns and the clothes Plaxico Burress was wearing when he accidently shot himself last month were found by authorities in a search of his home, multiple media outlets in New York reported on Tuesday.

A nine-millimeter handgun and a loaded rifle were discovered, according to the reports. A source told the New York Post that no permits were found for the weapons.

The New York Giants wide receiver is still serving a team suspension for shooting himself Nov. 29 in a nightclub with an illegally carried handgun. Burress shot himself at the Latin Quarter when he accidentally pulled the trigger on the .40-caliber Glock that was in his pants after fumbling a drink.

Teammate Antonio Pierce took the Burress to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center for treatment.

Burress pleaded not guilty on weapons charges and was released on $100,000 bail. He is due back in court March 31.

He was placed on the team's suspended/non-football injury list, and the NFL Players Association filed a grievance.

Just a side note: Does it seem like the Players Association ALWAYS files a grievance? No matter what the circumstance? Even for idiots like PacMan and Chris Henry?

    • We always seem to hold him in check. He would have been a better fit here honestly.
    • There was a rash of this sort of activity 10 or 15 years ago where several dozen kids entered retail stores and just took whatever they wanted for a couple of minutes and then scrammed before the police could arrive. These types of crimes are going to be coming to an end in the near future with the increasing number of cameras and improvement of biometrics.   Not only will we be able to identify the perps, it might be able to determine their intent prior to them being able to carry out their crimes. face-and-read-your-mind
