PLAXICO BURRESS: MAY REALLY BE CRYING IF WEBSITE STORY IS TRUE

Profootball talk.com has an amazing follow up on yesterday’s Plaxico Burress shooting. According to the website, New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress could face a MANDATORY three-and-a-half year prison sentence over the incident.

Burress accidentally shot himself in the thigh at a New York club Friday. When Burress told club security that he was carrying a loaded weapon, they went to a secure room to unload the gun. Burress apparently shot himself while removing the bullets from the gun.

Last year New York instituted tough new anti-gun legislation. As part of their “Guns=Prison” campaign, the city of New York now REQUIRES a 3-1/2 year prison sentence for anyone convicted of carrying a firearm that is not legally registered. Burress is not licensed to carry a handgun in New York. He did have a Florida gun permit, but that expired in May of 2008.

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg BRAGGED that New York now has the toughest handgun legislation in the country. When he signed the legislation, Bloomberg stated that the 3-1/2 year sentence would be universally applied to ANYONE carying a gun in New York. Bloomberg, in fact, went out of his way to state that there would be “no exceptions” to the mandatory sentencing law.

Let’s see if being a Super Bowl star for the New York Giants rates as an exception.
