Cracked me up the first time I saw the Glock video.

Correct!

Copied from the article on CNN:

A law enforcement official told The New York Times that the gun was a Glock semiautomatic pistol and that it had been recovered from the football star's New Jersey home.

Sweet! That's one for me today.... LOL

What a friggin Muppet - The guy's making some insane amount of cash per year, has a guaranteed contract ( according to the morning radio news ), so he gets paid while he's "hurt" and he can't afford a CWP or a bodyguard?

Then, his teammate, in an attempt to help out the situation, takes the illegal handgun and tries to hide from the cops.... Brilliant!

A positive on/off lock safety & a grip safety would have prevented this. As would someone with some "F"ing common sense to not allow this arrogant bastard into the club in the first place....

Moron.
.40 Glock. Maybe it just blew up for no reason!

I heard a little more about it this morning on the radio, they said the club could be in trouble because after the incident, they cleaned up the mess. Also, the hospital could catch some heat because they didn't report the incident. They said the gun was a .40 cal but didn't say what make or model, I'll look and see if I can find out more. EDIT: Never mind, I see gorknoids already figured it out.

I was just being sarcastic when I said that earlier, just cause I'm a little guy, only about 170 lbs.

Now, Now...don't go blaming the gun...blame the moron with the "Glock Fo'tee"

If there wasn't a round chambered, then pulling the trigger would have done nothing with ANY semi-auto...

I was always taught to never chamber a round until you intend to fire that round. Just my $0.02
