Plax Wishes You a Merry Gun-Mas

The NYPD announced that Giants receiver Plaxico Burress had a small weapons cache in his house.

And a suitcase full of money.

Guess Burress doesn't trust the banks either.

Why in the hell does Burress allegedly need a 9-mm handgun and a rifle and ammunition for a .380, a .45 and .40?

Even Tank Johnson thinks that's a little extreme.

Again, I ask the question: why does any citizen need to keep that kind of firepower in their home?

What's legal and what's common sense are two different things. One gun is fine but three or four or maybe even five?

No one is coming after you, Burress. No one. Not al-Qaeda, not the Mafia, not drug lords. Not Tina Turner's character from "Mad Max." No one. Not even the Borg. And if the Borg came after you, they'd just adapt after your first few shots.

Keeping that many guns in the home is just stupid and dangerous.

But then again we are talking about Plaxcident.

Please don't shoot Santa when he comes down your chimney.

I never thought I would see that day that Freeman came out of the closet but it happened, right in front of me. Who would have ever thought that Freeman, a famous sports writes with many accolades; is a Trekkie! In a word, wow.

Wow!!! This sounds like a gun control ad... Millions of Law Abiding Americans do own numerous guns. It is only when they fall into the hands of those who either do not know how to or do not respect their use. Bad people do bad things to good people. Last time I checked.. this  was still a FREE COUNTRY!!!

The majority of white adults on both sides of the aisle voted for a black president. When are people going to stop playing the race card?

I have an over/under twelve guage shotgun for skeet, a 22 lr semi-auto pistol for targets, a 22 magnum revolver and 22 magnum lever action rifle for small game, and a 44 magnum lever action for deer. Firearms are also very collectable items. Everyone who owns a firearm is not what this type of article portrays. There are statistically eight injuries per 100,00 participants in sanctioned, supervised and trained firearms related hunting and shooting endeavors.
Do some research on this Freeman, you'll be amazed. Alcohol kills more people. Oh yeh, was Burress observing one of the pre-eminent safety rules involving firearms which states, "Do not handle or operate firearms while under the influence of alcohol or prescription drugs"?
Seeing that he was drinking in a nightclub he wasn't paying attention.
This premise of your version of common sense gun regulation based on your obvious ignorance of what responsible firearm ownership is truly all about says a lot more about what people have to learn about this issue than what they truly know.

Gun-Mas...thats the smartest thing I've ever heard anyone say ever.  I don't know where you come up with this stuff.  I think this piece needs to be submitted for a Pulitzer, because the title alone is genius.  See what he did there?  Plax has guns....and its Christmas....wow.

The right to bear arms is a protection of citizens against their own government, if need be. Who's to say that in 50 years our own government might become tyrannical and without guns the population would have no way to fight back... That IMO is the reason we must always have a strong Second Amendment to remain a free country.

This is the worst title to an article that I have ever seen, followed by the worst article that I have ever read.

There is one problem with pulling the race card on this article, Freeman is black.
