        - as is hitting someone with a car
        - anal rape or rape of any kind is also pretty damn illegal last time i checked

        drunk driving is just a mistake? no its complete disregard for the safety of others. granted so is carrying a gun but one resulted in someone dying and the other resulted in a self inflicted injury and embarrassment. someone couldve gotten hurt but NO ONE DID but plax. still very stupid but the punishment has been a little much.

        rape is just a mistake? 'oh you said no? oh my mistake i mistook that for no dont stop.' bull**** thats knowingly committing an act of violence and just not giving a crap, having no self control.

        maybe i wasnt clear enough in my first post. plax was wrong to bring the gun. he didnt have permits and he broke the law and endangered people. if he was that scared he shoulda stayed home. but the punishment was far too severe considering the punishment to some of these other crimes.
        drinking and driving is a decision that is made at a single moment. the decision is worse but its a moment decisino whilst having possesion of an illegal gun (was registered but not in that state and burress was aware of that) was a decision that was pretty much made over and over. Im not saying that one is worse than the other but the point is that he had the gun for a while, id be suprised if it was the first time that he brought the gun somewhere concealed either. The point is that burress did something systematically that was wrong whilst the drinking and driving is a decision that is made in one moment.

          Did he break the law? Yes

          Is he serving a prison sentence that goes along with that crime? Yes

          Does he deserve to get out early? No

          Would everyone be complaining if it accidentally went off and shot someone next to him in the leg? No

          At the end of the day he was carrying a concealed firearm WHICH WENT OFF IN A CROWDED AREA when its against the law. He for sure deserves the punishment he is getting. The afore mentioned law breakers deserved more yes but the judge can't go oh well Donte Stallworth only got X amount of days so I will give you 20 minutes and a slap on the wrist.

          He deserves what he gets for breaking the law. If you don't want to go to prison don't break the law.

            He deserves what he gets for breaking the law. If you don't want to go to prison don't break the law.

            First off, who are you to say whether or not he deserves to have his sentence reduced? It was his gun, registered to Plax in New Jersey, the problem is, in NYC, it's illegal for ANYONE to have a firearm in NYC not registered in one of the five buroughs.

            Plax drove from NJ into the city, and that's where he screwed himself.

            Secondly, there's no reason to talk in hypotheticals. Plax didn't shoot an innocent bystander. He shot HIMSELF. I don't know where you're from, but in Virginia that's not a felony.

            So, for shooting himself in the leg with a registered weapon, albeit not registered in NYC, you think Plax deserves to serve a 3-year prison sentence??

            Get real.

              Most New Yorkers think the law enacted by Bloomberg in 2006(?) is too harsh, there isn't widespread consensus at all that his zero tolerance policy is fair or just.

              So let's not pretend because something has been passed into law, that it's a 'good law'.

              There should be exceptions for gun owners who bring in firearms into the NYC that are registered in NJ.

              No priors, no previous felony arrests, and simply for possession, ( his sentence had nothing to do with shooting himself btw), 3 years mandatory??

              That's the harshest illegal gun law in the country, by far.

              To say simply that Plax broke the law, lock him up, he got what he deserved, is a very narrow-minded view of the situation, IMO.

                    He committed a crime he deserves to serve his sentence (as do all criminals, I'm not a believer in short sentences, do the crime serve the time).

                    I'm from England where you can't walk into a supermarket and buy a gun, ANYWHERE in England it is illegal to do what he did (as it should be in America).

                    Yes I do because at the end of the day he broke the law carrying a weapon that is potentially fatal to himself or the general public. You get real for thinking it's OK for him to get a slap on the wrist for carrying a potentially deadly weapon around whilst breaking the law and letting it go off in his pocket in a public place. Don't be so ******* soft. He is a criminal, he committed a crime and he is doing the time, if he was some scummy drug dealer you wouldn't give two shits.

                    Maybe if America didn't have such flaky gun laws and everywhere was as strict as NYC then your gun crime wouldn't be so high.

                      I normally agree with you njx, but you are kind of taking the completely emotionless approach to this. Which is fine, because the law is fairly emotionless, barring the fact that 12 of his peers can make an emotional decision to find him guilty or innocent. In addition lawmakers can make emotional decisions to put legislation into laws.

                      I think the point is that while yes, Plax is doing what the law dictates in terms of punishment, it doesn't mean the law is right or fair. Which I do believe holds relevance to this particular topic of discussion.

                        You're not mean, your "arguments" are just equal parts obnoxious (saying things like "functionally broken" makes you sound sooooooo smart!) and ineffective (since there's little actual content behind your brilliant witticisms). "Discussing" with you is like "discussing" with a 5 year old who just found a thesaurus.

                          Do you know what the word 'relevance' mean, njx??

                          You might want to refresh yourself on the definition.

                          When the Mayor of New York is the proponent of the harshest gun law in the country, IMO examination of this fact is RELEVANT in considering whether or not Plax is receiving a 'fair and just' sentence for his crime.

                          Also, I love that in-depth analytical retort, 'it's the law', as in, so what?? Because a bill is passed into law, does not mean everyone agrees the law is needed, practical or efficacious.

                          For Plax to spend more than a year in jail for his crime, or anyone else in the exact same circumstance, IMO is a gross injustice.

                          Most law enforcement officials consider an 'illegal weapon' a firearm that either is stolen, unregistered or illegally purchased.

                          Most states allow gun owners to transport registered handguns across state lines.

                          Plax's gun was registered in NJ, only in NYC is it illegal to own or possess a gun not registered in one of the five boroughs.

                          The 'relevance', ( keep up njx9!), is that a reasonable person might assume Plax is serving an undeservedly punitive sentence, based on national standards.

                            I'm not interested in arguing with you. I'm interested in telling you how annoying your posts are. I don't know how you aren't aware of it but you apparently aren't. I'm sure you will wear funbuncher down too as he's noted the same ridiculous nonsense everyone else does that you draw into your silly "arguments".

                            "Arguments" is in quotes because don't actually argue. You state your opinions as fact, and then either disregard the positions of others as irrelevant without actually addressing the content (which is just lazy), or you ask for "proof", which you either wouldn't be willing to provide for your own POV, or isn't needed because it's an opinion clearly based on life experience. What's most obnoxious though is how impressed you are with your own ignorant "method" of discussion. This is what makes me think you're aware of how ridiculous your posts are. You must think it's funny. Whatever the reason I don't see much difference between your "arguments" and trolling.

                              You can dance around the point all you want, njx9.

                              The fact remains, by any standard you want to apply, that Plax was convicted and sentenced, (in my opinion and I'd bet that of many others), under a very flawed, unprecedented, illegal gun law.

                              However, to reach such a conclusion requires someone to think more profoundly than, 'well, it's the law, he got what he deserved'.

                              No law is infallible, or above criticism.

                                No it's not but I personally agree with the law and I am glad he has gotten what was given to him. IMO gun laws should be horrendously strict because at the end of the day they are dangerous and should not be carried around in public AT ALL. I can understand keeping a gun at home. But IMO carrying a gun around in public is ******* stupid and I think all of America should have the same law as NYC maybe it will lower your gun crime?

                                So he didn't kill anyone and just shot himself, what if he was confronted, what was he going to do with his gun, point it and not shoot, point it and shoot? What was his intention with that gun?

                                He is a ******* clown for carrying a gun around with him and I am glad he is in prison for it, maybe when he gets out he will think twice before carrying a firearm around with him like a total dick.
