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.

The Borg don't adapt, they assimilate.  Everyone knows this.

Plax Wishes You a Merry Gun-Mas

I agree with what you have written and do think that a person like Plaxico, who obviously does not know how to handle a gun, should not be owning that many guns.  I have no problem with the second ammendment, but it should at least be a requirement that you know how to use one and not shoot yourself in the leg.  If he can not even handle himself with a 9 mm than he definately should not be owning a rifle, imagine the damage he could do with that. 

However, the actual reason I am commenting is because that has got to be the worst play on words I've ever seen, Happy Gun-mas?  Its not even clever and just sounds stupid (doesn't rhyme (with Christ) and isn't even catchy).  Gotta come up with something better than that.

Another crappy reporter posting another crappy bash against plax, who cares how many guns he has, its america asshole, he makes his money and he buys what he wants whether its guns or suits, the poor bastard shot himself, did he commit a hanous, let him be, and try to do a better job coming up with a story butthole. Who cares what fat Tank Johnson thinks, hes a moron, who cares if it is one gun or twenty, maybe he likes to collect guns,  wow the borgs, really, come on put the acid down and start doing some real reporting, and shame on CBS for paying you for this crappy story..............loser

Again the press shows their liberal, uneducated, side by making how many guns you own as an issue. Of course the problem is with the person who owns them. There are many people who have more guns than Burress but they are responsible!

Straight up stupid.  I own guns, not as many as Plexidumb, but some.  I even have some ammo stored away.  What I also have is the intelligence on how to use them, where I would debate anyone that Burress does not.  For the record, I do not qualify shooting yourself in the leg as intelligent gun use.  Also, why are people berating the author of this article?  This is calling a spade a spade, or in this case, an idiot an idiot.  At this point he must be scared of the Borg, because nothing else in Burress' twisted mind makes sense.

Freeman, leave Plax alone. I can see people questioning him about the guns but why bring the money issue to this thread? He is a millionaire and do you think all the millionaires have all their money in the bank? And at the rate our economy is heading, do you really trust the banks too? I'm not as rich as Plax but I too have money stash in a suitcase, does that makes me a criminal? Please stick to writing about sports and not what rich people have in their home. I don't freakin care if one of his spare bedroom have money wall to wall. Its his money and he can do and keep it whicever way he wants.

It's called the second amendment and as long as he owns them legally he can have as many guns as he wants. There are plenty of people who own more guns than Burress and they're law-abiding citizens. Stop acting like a communist.
