    I think this is more about NY officials setting an example than justifying what happened, too strict of penalty in my opinion.

    So I guess that you are better off drunk driving and killing someone than shooting yourself in the leg? Seems a bit ridiculous

    It's not about owning guns illegally, it's about carrying guns illegally.

    The point is, New York has the strictest gun control laws in the country. Plax was either dumb enough not to know what the law was or he knew what the law was and was even dumber to carry anyway. Experts were saying that the average citizen would get 3-5 years for this crime. Plax settled for 2. Seems fair to me.

    As far as how this may or may not violate Plax's 2nd Amendment rights is a completely different issue. Point is, Plax broke New York law that exists on the books, and now he has to pay.

    EDIT - and odds are, the same people that are saying that Vick doesn't deserve a second chance will be campaigning for Plax's reinstatement the moment he steps foot out of prision.

    Re: Burress agrees to 2 year prison term

    If it was a plea agreement, his attorneys were apparently pretty certain that he'd get more than two years after a trial. Might as well make the deal now, start serving your sentence and get it out of the way.

    I see that the "raw deal" crew is here in full effect.

    Maybe people should try and not break laws instead of depending on our screwed up justice system to let them off the hook.

    Re: Burress agrees to 2 year prison term

    there a way more people on this board that have gotten away with driving over 0.08 and just happened to not kill somebody than would carry a gun in NY which is widely known to be completely anti-gun.

    Just don't be hypocrites, if you've ever driven after more than 1 drink - you're lucky to not be stallworth.
