Buccaneers defensive end Da’Quan Bowers has been arrested for carrying a gun at an airport.

NBCNewYork.com reports that Bowers was arrested at LaGuardia Airport on Monday morning after police discovered he was illegally carrying a handgun. Bowers had a loaded .40 caliber firearm in his carry-on bag as he was attempting to get on a US Airways flight to Raleigh, North Carolina.

Bowers was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and is expected to appear in court on Monday evening.

A 2011 second-round draft pick of the Buccaneers, Bowers missed the first six games of the 2012 season with a torn Achilles tendon but returned in time to play in 10 games and record three sacks last season.

How Fing dumb can you be? I mean, NFL players do dumb ****, but carrying a loaded gun at an airport? You might as well walk into a bank with a ski mask and combat vest.

Two counts of second degree criminal possession. 3.5 years to 15 max. Plaxico Burress charges.

Its more like walking into a bank with a ski mask and combat vest while and walking past several dozen armed and uniformed police officers while doing so. Seriously if there was an award for dumbest man in America this guy would probably be in the favorite right now.

Once heard one guy talk of a professional football player needing to have the desire and ability to run as fast as he can into a brick wall and then get up and do it again and again. So, if you're expecting a normal rational from such a necessary mentality of getting slammed into a brick wall, my guess is you will be disappointed time and time again.

Nothing will happen to him. He'll get a slap on the wrist and maybe a fine.

With the same charges in NY that Plax got? I don't think so.

He's going away for a long long time. One shot from a gun on a jet at high altitude can down an airliner and all onboard.

If he has a permit, they'd better drop it to third degree possession or it is an embarrassment to the country. He told the people at security that he had it.

So you want a guy to lose 15 years of his life for being stupid? I mean, do we really need to put guys in already over-crowded prisons who clearly don't have the intent to hurt anyone? This guy is a moron, sure, fine the hell out of him, put him on probation, but don't take away his life for being ignorant.

What? A permit?? :lol:

He was in a Fing airport!

The only embarrassment is our country's weird idiotic fascination with guns.

I own a gun but I know not to bring it to a Fing airport and I know it's not "cool" to have a gun.

So according to the guidelines for transporting a weapon by air he got 1 out of 4 right.

1. Pack unloaded firearms in a locked, hard-sided container. Place this container in your luggage that you intend to check when you arrive at the airport. No guns or ammunition of any kind are permitted in carry-on luggage.

2. Enclose ammunition in cardboard or in a metal or wooden container. These items can be stored in the same hard-sided container as your gun as long as they are properly packed. Ammunition must also be placed in checked luggage.

3. Check with your specific airline before arriving at the airport for any additional requirements they may have for transporting guns and ammunition.

4. Declare all guns and ammunition during check-in.

Good job Da'Quan! :thumbsup:

I'm just saying that being a complete idiot shouldn't result in a prison sentence.

By the way, he reportedly scored a 23 on the Wonderlic Test.

I'm just saying that the fact that the guy is a complete idiot shouldn't result in a prison sentence.

Generally I would agree with one proviso:

He should face the exact same consequences that any Tom, D and Harry who did the same thing would and the fact that he's an NFL player should have absolutely no bearing on it one way or the other.

Makes you wonder if he will only get a plea deal and get off with only a slap on the wrist with just community service? They always seem to do in comparison to a normal person.

Not saying that I disagree that it's a dumb law but at an airport? I just can't comprehend what he was thinking.

Why not? I travel with my weapon all the time. It's my American right to do so. There are guidelines to follow and if you do them you will not have a problem. I have taken mine in my carry on. I get outside of the terminal to my rental car and load my weapon and go on with my day.

Yeah I don't think he's a complete idiot and in my opinion does not deserve jail time.

I thought the sentence for carrying a concealed (SP?) in NY was atleast 2-3yrs, with no question asked just like Plax did in oct/nov of the 2008 season.

It would suck for him. At one point before the 2012 NFL Draft alot of "experts" were saying that Bowers could potentially be the #1 overall pick until Newton had a few great mettings with front offices through-out the long drawn-out combine and metting with potential "employers"

Alot of PPL though he could possiablly push his way up to the level of a player in the mold of, Bruce Smith (example and other all time greats) He is so stupid IMO. I acttually like him alot until I started watching the other players doing the same thing IMO.

I hope he will learn from this and try not to ruin you career.

D. Bowers----- you have alot of natural abailties. You dont need boodygaurds unless you have done some serious dirt if the last few seaons.
