    Why would you do that to the poor monks?

    He could still find a way to get into trouble. Perhaps tear a Cross off one of their necks. Much to the amusement of many around here.

    So in other words, he dodged a bullet.

    Talib got off way too easy. He should have at least been suspended for 4 games, if not a full season, for this level of idiocy. He is an embarrassment to this team and to all gun owners.

Not sure what the rules are down in Texas, but he really should consider a gun safety course as a gun owner going forward.
    Actually, in Texas, Guns and Liquor do mix. This is in Uvalde, Texas, not far from where I now live. And I believe they have a "Drive-thru" window.

    Well, the Trappists may still have their dairy cows and egg farm.

    Ha, that doesn't surprise me, Texas has all sorts of things like that, especially out in South Texas or going west.

    It's about time the NFL didn't act like they were the next level of legal system. He didn't break the law, and apparently didn't violate the terms of his contract. Why is everyone clamoring to see him get in some more trouble? It's interesting how our society craves punitive action, especially when it pertains to a celebrity. He should get a suspension for shooting himself and some people don't like it?

    Discharging a firearm in a public place while drunk for crying out loud. He was being stupid. What if he was on a second floor and shot someone one floor down? It's not the situation that happened, but this isn't a message I think should be sent out about gun safety, which I think is very very very important

    There are Lots of "ifs and buts" with this story, thankfully no suspension for a important piece of our defense.

    (Thanks Blondie!)

    It has been pointed out before. It is against the law to be intoxicated wand discharge a firearm in a public place, even in Texas.

    No clue why the District Attorney decided to not file charges. Whether some type of celebrity favoritism or blurry details form those involved with the actual incident does not matter. Talib got off way too easy.

    Responsible gun ownership in this Country is important. Constant messaging that "guns are bad, not the user". Yet here we we have an example of an idiot abusing the right and putting people at risk. Shooting himself in the butt was idiotic, next time there is a tragedy in the news due to irresponsible gun use please remember this story and the support of Talib.

    Some things are more important then whether your favorite player is on the field opening day.

    He played at an All Pro level after shooting himself in the upper-upper leg. Just mind boggling. A little to the left or right or up or down and he could have died, but instead he recovers in a matter of weeks and then plays NFL football better than anyone else and better than he's ever played it. What a stroke of luck. He either thanks his lucky stars or feels completely invincible at this point.

    Of course Talib should be suspended. He, at the very least, lied to the police. He created a situation that was just as bad as Pacman Jones's incident, if not worse, given the fact that Talib was the trigger man. It shouldn't matter that he was the only one that got hurt.

    I don't know what the NFL's logic is on not suspending him. I just hope nothing like that happens again.

    This. If he'd been shot in the femoral artery he probably would have died, just like Sean Taylor. Of course, Taylor was the victim of a home invasion while Talib was just being a moron. Still, he has his health, his wealth, and his freedom. I hope he appreciates all that.
