  • Don’t need a permit to buy or own a gun in FL, nor is there a registration. You do need a permit to carry a gun concealed, though a FL permit is not recognized in NY. So it wouldn’t matter if it was expired. Love your shows. Gun registration will lead to confiscation.

  • Leggit probation 1 maybe 2 years. He didnt deserve that man. Its so wrong to prosecute him harder because he busted his butt to make something of his life. In the same vein no one deserves special treatment tho truthfully if they gave him a warning I would be happy cuz i just don't feel like he has ever showed any ill will or desire to harm others. Thats me tho.

  • Two years for not shooting no one. Bruh. C'mon. Dude needed to pay a fine and be fine. If you don't harm someone no real crime was committed. How'd talib get away with the same thing. I can't stand that thug and he don't even get suspended by the league. Damn. Upside down world

  • That’s a damn shame. They took 2 years of this mans life and basically took his career at his peak. That’s Bloomberg for you. Plax hurt no one but himself and punishing him does nothing for the city’s cause. People who want to illegally carry a gun, are going to do just that. Punishing Plax isn’t going to make them change their mind. Sad situation.

  • I'm in Jersey. I remember this, and it was BS. Bloomberg was just grandstanding, it was just ridiculous and wrong. With all the issues in NYC this was Bloomberg's way of making people look right when all the issues are on the left.

    Mike MinutilloMike Minutillo3 kun oldin
  • I think the punishment should have been paying a couple millions in fines and losing his right to get a gun license in any state. At the most 3 months of jail should have been it. The precedent for the charge is terrible with a 3 to 15 year sentence. There was no need to ruin Plaxico over this mishap. Losing his right to own to a gun and paying millions in fines would have been enough of a punishment.

  • I’m hard on Plaxico for ruining the opportunity people dream of but Bloomberg is a total piece of sh!t! There’s no reason to be so hard on somebody for an accident. Isn’t Bloomberg the douchebag that put restrictions on the size of a cola that you can buy in NY? I’m sure he is..what a Nazi!

  • I'd say 6 months and 2 years probation for a gun charge like that. People need to be responsible with their weapons and he wasn't. 2 years too much. Definitely not 15 years. That's rediculous!

  • What a scumbag. Here's a guy who shoots himself after flaunting the law. Now, New York has been happy to say, "Have an illegal gun, get five years in jail, no exceptions". But what happens? Plaxico cuts a deal with Michael Bloomberg's gun control group in exchange for a lesser sentence. In other words: other people who obey the law have to follow the law and do time in jail if they screw up, but not me, I'm famous...and that's why I'm telling you that you shouldn't have guns.

  • I can look at it both ways, yes he only shot himself, but also what if when it discharged a single mom with 3 kids gets a rare night out cause it’s her sisters birthday and it hits and kills her. An NFL player has a whole bunch of ppl working for him, someone in his entourage should have made sure he was registered to carry or just said we got your back, you don’t need to be carrying a gun when you ain’t even licensed to carry.

  • 2 years wasn't a bad deal considering that the minimum was 3.5Y. As a Giants fan, I think Plax's legacy is intact; I will always remember and cherish the memory of that SB reception. I see the shooting as a terrible mistake (and felony)... many legendary athletes have accumulated their fair share of stupidity.

  • As an answer to the "Bloomberg punishment question " .... 1. Plax should have been given a hefty fine to be paid to a charitable organization... local Boys n Girls Clubs or something similar 2. He should have been made to do a series of PSAs about gun safety 3. He should have been ordered to take and pass gun safety and concealed weapons classes. 4. Community Service at local youth detention centers to speak against gun violence and possibly mentor a group of at risk kids. Case closed. No interviews.

  • Bro! I love your channel, your journalistic p.o.v., and literally EVERY STORY that I've watched you report on. One of my favorite reports you did was on JaMarcus Russell. The personal story at the end was just too good. Anyway I really am commenting to ask you to do a story on my friend, #24 Deltha O'neal. First Round 15th overall to Denver in the Y2K Draft. I know how you do with your reports brother, so I'll just pray that you hear my plea, and you decide it worth your time. Much love and respect, and wishing you success in all you do.

Those adults working shitty jobs were not college graduates.., probably most weren’t even high school graduates. Black culture has got to change. Education is GOOD and will free a black man. Emancipate and break the mental chains that still enslave. Knowledge and education is King !

My Ball Toner informed me that Plaxico is a United States citizen hence he has the right to keep and bear arms and those rights shall not be infringed... My Ball Toner also informed me that shooting yourself in the leg is not only embarrassing, but a punishment within itself.... My "Manscaped Lawnmower" also informed me that Plaxico is a chill dude.......This is not an official endorsement for the Manscaped Ball Toner or Lawnmower... Freshen your balls at your own risk.

He’s got a great knack for humanizing these athletes without necessarily asking his audience to either praise or condemn them. He tells their story and lets us come to our own conclusions. This is one of the best sports channels on UZworld.

  • As a Pats fan Plax has always had a place in my heart (not a good one) fucking 19-1. It was a series of unfortunate events, there was no ill-intent. Dude made a mistake. What good did it do for anyone to lock him up for 2 years? Hell, you could have just gave him a ton of community service and he could have talked to every school in NYC about gun violence, or the value of an education. That would have actually served the state and the people.

  • Great point for inner city youth. If they feel doing the legal way is going to be too difficult they're going to turn to crime. This is why I think big businesses that employ minimum wage talent should provide scholarships, grants, and work opportunities for their minimum wage employees so that they can become more economically valuable as their skillset improves. Giving them a higher minimum wage deceptively keeps them locked at the bottom of the barrel and in the next 10-20 years when inflation makes that raise increase they will be desperate for higher wages. Thus the cycle repeats.
