When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong

Plaxico Burress evidently doesn’t value his NFL career. Carrying a concealed, loaded, unregistered semi-automatic weapon is never a good idea.

Carrying a concealed, loaded, unregistered semi-automatic weapon in New York City, at a club, is an even worse idea.

But, let’s be real.

None of us are worth millions of dollars and none of us knows what it is like to constantly be hounded everywhere we go.

Whether it be McDonald’s, Macy’s or Wal-Mart, athletes are celebrities and are recognized, and at times challenged by those who are jealous of their worth and success.

Still, the benefits of carrying a gun and protecting yourself are greatly outnumbered by the pitfalls of doing the act.

The only benefit of carrying a gun is shooting someone who is shooting at you.

I can think of 38 negatives to that positive.

So, while Burress probably had a good reason (in his head at least) when he left his house to carry the gun, it’s just not a good idea.

I’m not against players having the right to have guns, but once it goes off—NFL commissioner Roger Goodell can pretty much do what he wants.

Burress is done with the Giants, it’ll be interesting if he gets the “Vick-treatement”—we all know what that is.
