people are comparing this to the Plax issueDidnt Plax shhot himself with the gun?In that case it was unlawful discharge of a firearm in a public settingwhich is a whole different issue
The law in NYC is very clear that you need a special permit to have a gun. Other state permits, hell even other NY permits, are not recognized. Like I said, there is a very good chance Bowers ends up with jail time for this.

Ill be shocked if he walks away from this scotch free. New York has tough guns laws and I can't see someone who walks into an airport with a loaded gun getting off easy in that state. I hope so though.

I hope so though.They do have some tough laws...but I think they take some things into perspective..Hes a great kid who has a pretty much spotless record...it wasnt like he had it out and waiving it around or trying to commit a murder or terrorist actHe admitted to having it...its not like they found it and he tried to sneak it past themIt was a mistake and without a doubt he will learn from it and next time he comes through NY he wont bring it...or will obtain the documents needed to be within their lawsI might be wrong...but I dont see him doing any time or having it on his "record"
Attorney: “Bowers Will Be Fully Exonerated”Sometimes, Joe enjoys the hubris of some. Take attorneys who represent clients. In this case, said attorney is Dennis Coppin, who represents Bucs defensive end Da’Quan Bowers.Yesterday, Bowers admitted to a US Airways clerk at LaGuardia Airport in Queens he was packing heat in his carry-on bag. This practice is frowned upon by New Yorkers, very much so in fact, and Bowers was slapped with a felony charge and locked up for the better part of Monday.But in an e-mail to the Tampa Tribune, Coppin declares Bowers will walk away from these proceedings free as a bird, so reports Woody Cummings. “After a full and fair investigation of the facts and circumstances regarding this registered firearm Mr. Bowers will be fully exonerated,” attorney Dennis Coppin wrote in an email to The Tribune on Tuesday.That’s much easier said than done. As Joe pointed out yesterday after speaking to a former Manhattan prosecutor and current defense attorney in the Big Apple, Bowers and his counsel are going to have to disco dance through legal hoops for Bowers to walk on these charges.Just like player agents, Joe is always su**CENSORED**ious of hired-gun attorneys boasting of their client’s innocence. Why? Well, have you ever heard an attorney say of his client, “He was caught with the bloody glove and we are throwing ourselves at the mercy of a jury of his peers for lenience?”Of course not. Lawyers and agents have agendas, and Joe has no issue with that. Part of said agenda is putting up a desired front.http://www.joebucsfan.com/?p=83561
