Plaxico -- Cuffs Make the Man

12/1/2008 4:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

With his hands cuffed firmly behind his back, Plaxico Burress just left a NYC police precinct after turning himself in on a felony weapons charge. He'll be arraigned sometime this afternoon, we're told.
Plaxico: Click to watch
As he was placed in handcuffs, sources say Plax "looked really, really down ... shellshocked."

One little problem: Didn't the Supreme Court recently reaffirm the Second Amendment? Burress is licensed to carry in Florida, and under the Commerce clause, that license should be good in NYC, regardless of whether Mike Bloomberg likes it or not and regardless of what NYC law says. This might end up as an important test case, Burress being a complete jerk nonwithstanding.

What exactly is he pleading "Not Guilty" to? Shooting himself? Carrying a concealed weapon? Since it is SOOOOOO obvious he is guilty, he'll be found not guilty...can you say O.J.??

Jen # 2, FYI Burress' license to carry in Florida expired last year. That being said NYC has hasd a long term no concealed law on the books for maby years and no other state can supercede that. Each state has or does not have their own concealed carry laws that are recognized by some other states. NY does not recognize the Florida law.

Also commerce clause does not apply here, because regulation of concealed & unregistered firearms is a state function that can be reasonably limited state to state. Florida is not NYC. NYC has a significant interest in protecting its citizens from concealed weapons inside city limits. Do you have any idea how many people are cramed into this city.
Can't have people all over with guns. Besides, this guy could have killed someone.
Jail...period.

You mean, star turns himself in and doesn't get turned loose right away for gracing the authorities with his presence... Only in New York... And the rest of the real world that isn't Los Angeles.

"Your honor, just before I didn't shoot myself with the gun I didn't bring, I was telling the doorman about the fines I didn't get for the stunts I didn't pull while not a member of the team I don't belong to for the money they didn't pay me. Not guilty"
