Well, I know I'm in the minority, but I feel sorry for him. Plax is a dope, but he's not a bad guy. Yeah, he COULD HAVE hurt someone, but since he only hurt himself and the gun was for self defense, I would have given him probation (I understand the NY laws have minimum sentencing, I'm just saying that's what I think he deserves.)
I agree SDW. 2 years, for stupidity, where he didn't hurt anyone but himself. It is excessive IMO.
