But he’s a celebrity

Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau actually wants ex-Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress in jail for illegally carrying in NYC. According to today’s Post:

“… Negotiations in the gun-possession case against ex-Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress — who accidentally shot himself in the leg at a Midtown nightclub last November — fell apart earlier this year after prosecutors insisted he do two years’ state time on a plea to a lesser gun charge, the DA told The Post. The Super Bowl XLII star was willing to bite the bullet and do jail time, but he wouldn’t agree to more than a year, the DA said …”

Whether Morgenthau carries through on this remains to be seen. New York is known to pooh-pooh away gun charges against celebrities.

Burress’ stupidity in carrying a Glock stuffed into the waisteband cannot be understated. ┬áBecause of the safety lever on the trigger, Glocks need holsters which cover the trigger guard to prevent ADs like this from happening.

  1. Of course Burress should be in jail. The right to keep and bear arms shall be infringed! I mean, that’s what it says in the Bill of Rights. Isn’t that what it says?
