Seriously? You want THAT person on your side?

The 'Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence' (a misnamed group of anti-freedom busybodies) ha decided to associate themselves with a Dirtbag*, Idiotic**, Asshole***, Plaxico Burris.

You remember him, right? Stuffed a Glock in his waistband at a NYC nightclub and blew a hole in his own damn leg? That ring a bell?

Well, he is out of prison and running with the wrong crowd.

I am not a person that really follows sports, or thinks that grownups playing children's games for millions of dollars are 'Role Models', or are a hero. But this jerk needs to man up and own his own problems, and not try and blame millions of honest gun owners for his idiocy.

*i.e. a Felon
** You violate SEVERAL rules of gun handling, you are an idiot
*** You try to blame the gun- and enthusiasts like me for your idiotic actions- that makes you an Asshole.

H/T: Say Uncle


  1. All right. Before I go any further, may it be so stipulated that Plaxico Burress, with his gun blaming ways, is the perfect spokesperson for the Organization Formerly Known as Handgun Control. That said...

    I don't know. I think I may be missing something here — but what was the felony Plaxico Burress committed? Was it the breaking of the law forbidding carry without a permit? I really can't get too het up about that. We talk all the time about the injustice of requiring a permit to exercise a Constitutionally-protected right, yes? And even if he did have a New York state permit, it's next to impossible to get a permit to carry in New York City. If his violation of unjust laws such as the gun laws in New York City makes him a bad guy, then all the folks who broke the Jim Crow laws during the civil rights movement were bad too. Do we really want to go there?

  2. They can have him. The perfect spokesman. Please, please let me get into a debate and have someone use him as their go to.

  3. South, I agree with you for the most part. I agree that ignoring unjust laws is the right thing to do. However, he was also carrying while drinking and in a bar. Then he cranks off a round through his own leg.

    Not exactly someone who is heroically standing up for the downtrodden. And he did not fight the law- he just went to jail and wants to blame us for his woes.

    Even without the 'felon' tag- he is a dirtbag.

  4. Well, I can definitely agree with that. Carrying while getting sloshed is just stupid.
