Well any of you familiar with Pro football may know of Plaxico Burress, the wide receiver who caught the game winning touchdown pass in last years super bowl. He just turned himself in to NYPD for shooting himself accidentally in the leg.
The media are blowing this up, not just about how stupid this guy is for shooting himself in the leg, but basically going off about anyone who carries a gun.
How badly could or will this affect how people view concealed carry of firearms?
Keep in mind, he had no concealed carry permit, or any other permit for that matter. Probably no training either. But they don't want to talk about that. Just that anyone who carries a gun is looking for trouble in the "Wild West".
