Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence
Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand have appealed to the Obama administration to prevent illegal guns from being brought to New York and make it far more difficult for the mentally handicapped and criminals to obtain firearms, while protecting law-abiding gun owners.
The Brady Center initially pressed for Burress to go to prison. On Monday night, the Jets wide receiver spoke at the organization’s annual fundraiser in Manhattan.
As ex-Giants star Plaxico Burress grabbed a microphone and started telling his story to about 100 children, some of the kids were murmuring and chattering among themselves. And then he said “gun.” The kids got quiet in a hurry.
When Plaxico Burress told the Wall Street Journal last week, “You never know what may happen. I love New York,” it sounded as if a return to the Giants could be in the cards. On Monday, Burress called his relationship with coach Tom Coughlin “ambivalent” and described Rex Ryan’s squad as “appealing.” So how about those Jets?
Former Giants star Plaxico Burress will work with the National Urban League and Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence after spending nearly two years in prison on a weapon possession charge.
