Aldon Smith and Delanie Walker are in trouble in San Jose for, among other things, illegally possessing assault rifles, which Smith, as  I understand it, fired during a party. He may or may not get charged. A while back Plaxico Burress went to jail for illegally possessing a hand gun in New York. Are the cases of Smith and Burress the same or different? Please help me understand as I am not a lawyer and find these matters somewhat confusing.
