Burress

Surrenders Gun

11/30/2008 7:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the NYPD paid a visit to Plaxico Burress' house this afternoon, and retrieved what appears to be the gun that triggered this whole mess.

The cops arrived with a manila envelope, but a search warrant was NOT inside.

We're told Burress was not there, but authorized someone inside his home to give police the gun that apparently fell down his leg at a nightclub Friday night and accidentally fired.

It would appear reports that he dumped the gun somewhere in New Jersey are not accurate. As we reported, Burress will surrender tomorrow, and plead not guilty to a felony weapon charge.

Meet the New Michael Vick of the Media. Plaxico we learned of you in the Super Bowl, now we'll never forget you for this stunt. You the poster boy for dumbness---even after being told of NYC's laws by the Giants----mandatory time in prison is what you're facing---not the Super Bowl. Roger Goodell, do the right thing here. Dont bow to the money pressure. You let Bellecheat off easy, dont do the same to this one. He's a danger to society and other players.

My co workers were in that same club at the time this happened

I pray that he does not throw his life away.

He is in a position that millions dream about - and will have financial security for most of his life.

Don't waste these golden opportunities which can only be described as a gift from God.

Really think about the consequences of your actions

Hey Guys and Gals,

Instead of giving our 2 cents and standing high on our soap boxes, let's wait for the facts (or the lack of) to surface before hanging this guy. Obviously it was a foolish mishap. But accidents certainly happen, and it's never good to extend judgment in a way you yourself would not like to be judged during foolish moments. Give this story time. Full disclosure, I'm a Cowboys fan...so I'm not sticking up for a Giant. In fact we got a big game coming up against New York.
