How is it disturbing? He should have registered it, and then maybe he wouldn't be in so much heat. Maybe he should have gotten his license to conceal a firearm in the state of New York, then there would be even less heat on him.
While we all have a right to bare arms, there are certain laws to have to follow to do so in a legal manner, otherwise anyone can run around with a gun without any legal ramifications for doing so.
Plaxico Burress doesn't have the excuse that he couldn't afford to register his gun or get his license to conceal, he was just to damn lazy and/or felt he was above the law due to playing pro football.
He found out wrong. Shot himself in the leg, and then in the foot when he turned down a plea deal that would have forced him to serve only three months.
