The divorce was too much for him and now this happens. This season is only getting worse for us.

From ESPN NY:

NEW YORK -- New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday morning on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon, according to a police department spokesman.

Felton was charged with second and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm, which are felonies, and fourth-degree possession of a firearm, which is a misdemeanor, the spokesman said.

Felton is expected to appear in criminal court in Manhattan on Tuesday.

I wonder if someone on the team/staff snitched on him.

He could go away for A LONG time, that second degree charge alone is a max of 15 years.

I read on espn that he turned himself in after the Mavs game. Very confusing. Unless they already had a warrant and he knew about it. If not why on gods earth would you walk into a police precinct and turn yourself in for unregistered guns. Just get them registered. Or get ones that are.

Wonder if someone has some dirt on him and had him do this.

Apparently a woman who hasn't been identified walked into the police station and gave the police the gun and said it was feltons.

It was a .28 caliber, details are pretty limited right now outside of that.

He's pretty much facing the same charges as plax did, except no one likes Felton in NY, or anywhere else, so he prob gets worse time.

Damn, Hes screwed. You wont be seeing him for a long time. I got charged with a ccw in Detroit for having a pistol in my car. I only had it because well its Detroit. Here I got the charge dropped to a misdemeanor but I did alot of research into the law and NY is just ridiculously harsh on their gun laws. He wont do less then a year, They might even throw 2 years at him.

Weird. And likely means he will get off unless there's a lot more details proving Felton possessed these guns.

If I was Felton, I would have gone in, with my attorney, and denied any allegations by that woman, unless she has actual proof that Felton possessed the firearms. If not, it's he said/she said which won't hold up. If she does, I would still take my chances at a trial, unless a plea deal is offered with no jail time.

I mean, if she has no proof, this is no different than anyone walking into a Miami PD and with some guns and claim they are Lebron James. Charges won't stick.

You said it in your own post, look at Detroits gun problems, and look at NY's. We don't have a gun problem anymore.

Proof. Police grab fingerprints from the gun. Feltons will most likely be found on the gun proving that he either owned/had possession of the firearm. Screwed.

I think its BS, by law I can open carry a pistol on my hip all I want but the second my shirt covers it im a felon. And seeing as Detroit is murder capital I feel alot safer knowing I have a gun on my side to defend myself. Locking up civilians for having a firearm for self defense goes against our constitutional rights in my opinion. I can understand getting into trouble for not having the weapon registered though.

I find it pretty ironic you think it's bs, yet your so scared to leave your home in Detroit, you don't want to leave without a gun, because everyone else has a gun.

Now here's Felton, a guy who thinks his **** doesn't stink, he's mad at his wife, waiving a .28 caliber gun around, not only is it unregistered, but I'm pretty sure owning ammo or a gun of that caliber in NY is illegal, so he's either too stupid to check, or doesmt care about the law.

And yet you guys are defending gun rights in this situation? Get out of here with that bs, you don't want guys like Felton owning guns, thats common sense.

I'm a gun owner, and there's nothing that bothers me more than people who use the 2nd amendment as any kind of excuse. It's a cop out for people to stupid to debate the topic in current times and situations.

I understand some sort of punishment for breaking the law but some of these punishments NY gives for gun charges is ridiculous.

I've read stories of people getting Prison sentences when they come to NY with a CCW permit from another state. For instance in one story, a women checks in her firearm at a building and gets arrested because her CCW permit is not issued from NY but from her home state. Do you think prison is fair justice in that situation?

I'm not even going to get into your interpretation of the 2nd amendment, but I just need to clarify something for you:

1. Criminals are also civilians of this country.
2. Criminals are not allowed to own unregistered firearms, just like everyone else in NY. When they get caught, they go to jail just like everyone else.
3. Did the jack booted Storm Troopers bash down everyone's door and forceably take their registered and legal guns away? No? Then its not a "blatant disregard for the 2nd amendment".

New York gun laws are the best.

Should be this way all across the nation. If you own guns, you register them. If you don't register them and are arrested with those guns, you spend time in prison.

It would cut down a lot on illegal use of firearms. Idiots would think twice before illegally carrying firearms.

Obviously it works.

If criminals can carry guns around unlawfully and get a slap on the wrist and their guns taken away, they'll go right back to doing it.

When you make gun laws tough like they do in NYC, less criminals are willing to take that risk because they don't want to end up in prison.

As we've already stated, the murder rate in NYC has drastically dropped, and NYC is now the safest big city in the United States.

I'm sure you'll disregard this and chalk it up to police presence. But why has Chicago maintained such a high murder rate? They've increased police presence, yet gun laws are a joke and a slap on the wrist there.

For instance in one story, a women checks in her firearm at a building and gets arrested because her CCW permit is not issued from NY but from her home state. Do you think prison is fair justice in that situation?

Anyone who has a permit knows damn well where they can and can't bring there piece, if they don't, they shouldn't have one.

And I don't think anyone who has had a legit permit, has ever been convicted anyway.

Why the **** does Felton need 3 guns? These players wanna be hood so bad and most of them forget that they grew up privileged. This whole Knicks team is full of fake gangsters. IMO the Knicks need to take New York off their chest and put Knicks on it until they win 2 playoff series in the same year. Until then they have lost the right to represent the city and the state.

So some harmless civilian in the situation I explained should go to prison and be charged with a felony? I disagree and I know damn well you would to if you got caught up in it. A felony can ruin a persons life especially over some petty **** like that.

Nothing about guns is petty. True law-abiding citizens who want a gun for legitimate and reasonable protection always say the same thing: owning a gun is a serious business and we do it right. They also consistently say if someone can't handle following the rules of owning, storing, loading, cleaning a gun, then they can't handle having one in the first place.

I agree, Just saying your average day everyday person doesn't deserve to go to Prison and be charged with a felony over some mistake. What Felton did is deserving of some time but not some of the stories I've read of people getting caught up in NYs strict gun control systems.

And what's all this "We" crap? What are you some high and mighty club who's opinion on the laws is stronger than everyone else's because you payed 50 bucks for a CCW certificate. Your not some authority with special trained skills or something.

Like I said anyone can open carry a firearm all they want but the second their shirt covers it up they can be convicted as a ****ing Felon and go to prison. It's stupid, A drunk driver is more dangerous to society and most the time they're just going to get a misdemeanor and some fines. But grandma carrying a pistol or Knife over 3 inches in her purse for self protection is a felon.

There's nothing harmless about someone who carries a gun on them, permit or not.

In the rare case that your talking about, if someone is stupid enough or crazy enough to bring there gun to ny even if they have a permit, than yes, they deserve to be arrested.

And as I already mentioned, I don't think ayone in that case has Actuslly been convicted of anything, they just got slaps on the wrist. Now if someone considered dangerous did that, it is a different story.

My best friend growing up was caught with 3 lbs of chronic and a fully loaded illegal gun. Did no time, in the end he wasn't considered dangerous. Which is crazy because we both had multiple assault charges in our past, but I guess a lawyer, and not being black probably didn't hurt.

In ny you can't own stuff like nun chucks, switch blades, butterfly knives, ninja stars, razors, brass knuckles....
if your caught with that crap it's the same charge as a gun charge.

Yet, you can own a gun...

You quote my post, but didn't read it completely. I said for all the people who take owning a gun seriously - they say, we do it the right way.

I was not clear. I don't, and would not, own a gun, and in no way meant to imply I did. I can recognize that some people who possess guns take it seriously and follow the law. Those who cannot even be bothered registering and abiding by gun laws should not have them.

New York gun laws are the best.

Should be this way all across the nation. If you own guns, you register them. If you don't register them and are arrested with those guns, you spend time in prison.

It would cut down a lot on illegal use of firearms. Idiots would think twice before illegally carrying firearms.

That's what you say now until you get pulled over in the wrong neck of the woods and the last thing you hear is the redneck cops saying "and what do we have here?"

I don't own a gun and am not pro gun ownership... I'm mostly ambivalent when it comes to this gun ownership debate. But the people that are against guns and think that limiting or eliminating ownership will cut down on crime need to look no further than the UK and they will quietly stop using crime statistics as a debate point for anti gun ownership. Violent crimes and homicides went UP after 97.

Looking around on reddit, rumor is his gun was loaded with armor piercing bullets when he was arrested.

Can anyone validate this?

those are the only bullets that go in that specific gun. The whole weapon is basically a cop killer weapon. For what reason he has a gun like that IDK nor does NYC.

Pretty much, he got what he deserved, and who knows what more comes down the line w/ him.

We play Miami on Thursday, if he's smart he swims to Cuba.

wtf are you talking about?
there's a clear distinction between someone with a firearm with no intention of doing harm vs breaking the law.
just because someone owns a handgun doesn't automatically imply they are dangerous.

what is a "cop killer weapon"?
you're saying that other guns and rounds cannot kill cops?

what is different about a .28? I've never heard of that round. was it FMJ or HP?

it's illegal to have those bullets let alone carry that gun in NYC w/o a license.

cop killers can be used for more than just cops.

so owning guns makes you hood? we have plenty of guns of all different types at our house, all locked up in a safe with the exception of one. our family is a normal middle class white family. not hood, not hick, not gangster, not *** hole.
a normal middle class white family. granted they are all legal, but cmon...owning them doesnt mean someone is "hood"

I have no problem with owning guns.

I think if you register them, you should be able to own them.

To register them, you need to have a clean record (no felonies). If you are a law-abiding citizen and are responsible, you can own guns. It's simple.

why would he have to worry about that? as long as his gun is registered, it wouldn't be an issue :confused: it's crazy that in the warped mind of certain individuals, any law that ensures gun safety = evil nazi fascist government taking your freedom and guns away.

He has to worry about a lot of things.

1. the gun isn't registered.

2. the gun isn't registered in NY. [our gun laws are strict to prevent major crime rates]

3. the gun has armor piercing bullets [cop killers] and the main reason this is a problem is b/c the main place these bullets come from are drug dealers or drug lords [pandora's box opened]

4. he allegedly waved this thing in front of his ex. spouse

he has a lot to explain by June.

He wasn't talking about Raymond Felton.

He was speaking hypothetically. Agreeing with my point that if you have guns registered legally, you have nothing to worry about.

Owning guns makes you far from hood. I wear a suit and tie everyday to work and am as far from hood as anyone and I own 4 guns and I'm pissed because Illinois is one of like 4 states that won't let me buy a suppressor for my .45 :(
