Deron Williams Cautions Against Carrying a Gun in New York City

Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams addressed the legal troubles facing Raymond Felton – Williams says it’s not wise to carry heat in Gotham. Felton will reportedly suit up for the Knicks Thursday night in Miami after posting $25,000 bail. Per the NY Post:

“I got my license to carry in like 26 states, but I’m not bringing my gun to New York City,” Williams said before the Nets practiced at UCLA on Tuesday and before they traveled up the coast for Wednesday night’s game with the Trail Blazers. “I know better than that.”

New York has among the strictest state laws on gun control in the country.

“It’s a tough situation,” Williams said. “I wish the best for Ray. I know Ray well. That’s tough for him.”

Felton surrendered to police early Tuesday and then was charged with two counts of weapons possession, one felony and one misdemeanor — facing a maximum of seven years in prison. Felton’s case was adjourned until June 2 and the Knicks point guard left Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday night on $25,000 cash bond, posted by his mother.

Felton, under a restraining order, departed without commenting on the latest troubling saga that began when his estranged wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, who recently filed for divorce, allegedly brought his unlicensed handgun to police at the 20th Precinct on the Upper West Side.

The NBA is going to wait to see what the legal ramifications are for Felton. So, because there are no travel restrictions, Felton is expected to play against the Heat. The Knicks declined to issue any comment Tuesday.

    In the Shock Exchange’s opinion, D-Will should be more cautious about “A woman scorned” – that’s what really has Felton a caught in a sling.

  • D

    Maybe D-will is more responsible than Felton . A responsible gun owner knows the laws of the state

  • shockexchange

    If D-Will pisses his woman off, he’ll be “all caught in a slang” just like Felton. It just won’t be over a gun though.

  • D

    Ok let me give an example ….. I’m Canadian in my province pit bulls are illegal to own , if I bring one to my house and piss my girlfriend off and she tells the police I have a pit bull who is to blame ?? . As a grown ass man it’s his responsibility to make sure what he has is legal

    The point is….. Emotions will cause people to look for errors.

  • D

    I understand what you guys are saying , what she did is not cool but I feel it’s his responsibility . How many guys have ex girlfriends/ wives that are cool enough to hide a gun for you ??

  • shockexchange

    What happens when she takes a random pit bull down to the police station and claim it was yours and you left it in the bedroom?

  • TBRK

    she studies law at Fordham University (Ivy League)…..yeah she knew what she was doing on that one. knowledge is power…..for better or for worse

  • GP

    Felton readily admitted the gun was his. The gun was not registered and was loaded with armour-piercing bullets. Her and her lawyer can clearly use this as leverage during divorce proceedings (which I assume was the main objective in turning the gun in).

    It doesn’t matter where he left it; he’s an idiot for putting himself in a position to get caught in any way, and he’s equally as responsible for having a gun that is unregistered in a state that is extremely strict on gun laws.

  • GP

    My inkling is that her lawyer concocted this to gain leverage over any divorce proceedings.

  • shockexchange

    His wife is tellin’ “what had happened”, so that makes Felton an idiot? If it hadn’t been the gun then it would have been something else.

  • GP

    I don’t get your point. His wife is telling ‘what had happened”‘ because there is something to tell. OK, you say she’s scorned and wants to bury him, fine. But why is Felton putting himself in that position in the first place? Why leave a loaded gun in the house of your estranged soon-to-be ex-wife with divorce proceedings around the corner?

    I don’t blame his wife, I blame his clear lack of judgement and awareness. You’re blaming the woman for, essentially, doing the smartest thing she can do in that situation when it comes to her own security (both physical and financially in the long-term). She is likely going to win the divorce as a result.

  • bringbackthesonics

    hahahaha i cant believe her last name is raymondo-felton!

  • D

    If it’s an unregistered gun then I stand corrected , I’m sorry . But the gun must be registered to him in some state , so they know it’s his and there has to be a way for someone like Felton who could be in a different state every season due to work , to bring registered weapons from other states into states that don’t allow them ? , I don’t know American law that well but they can’t expect someone to just throw away there weapons when they get traded to a state that has stricter laws

  • D

    They have to have some proof it’s his , by your logic I could go down to the police station with a bag of crack and say “oh this dude shockexchange sold me this crack go get him”

  • GP

    We should just refer to him as Raymondo from now on.

  • shockexchange

    You sound like the typical “scorned woman.”

  • bike

    Tiger Woods cautions against marrying any woman who might go a little loco if you get a hankering for a little extra trim on the side.

  • D

    lmao , I’m good I’m in Canada I can’t be thrown in jail over here say , you may want to becareful who you piss off though , if that’s how your laws work

  • shockexchange

    Oh Canada, actually you’re not good. Whatever shade you throw the Shock Exchange’s way, he can throw it your way. He is well-known throughout Canada … or haven’t your heard? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3ZR6G9Vp2I

  • spit hot fiyah

    we can all tell that deron forgot a thing or two about shooting since moving to NY. boom

  • D

    Good video , I know who you are I respect your opinion , your like a celeb on here lol . You seem like a smart guy so my question is would you let your ex wife hold your illegal gun ?

  • shockexchange

    No. Felton should not have left an illegal gun laying around the house; that’s pretty obvious. SE’s point is that, a scorned woman, with whom you have shared secrets with, is going to get back at you somehow.

    When Barry Bonds’ sidepiece found out he had other sidepieces besides her, she gave authorities (i) info. about his tax evasion and (ii) evidence of his steroid use. Lastly, Felton’s wife is very attractive …
    which means some man in a position of power somewhere is going to go the
    extra mile to help her in her crusade. In legal parlance it’s called, “quid pro quo” or “this for that.” Put it in your diary Oh Canada.

  • patrick

    drop the charges

  • guest

    damn shock you sound jaded. need to get something off your chest? you’re the author of the great “lebron rules” but you can’t spot loco when you come across it?

  • guest

    Right but at some point they were really good friends and now she’s potentially the catalyst for him going to prison? I mean there’s leverage in a divorce and then there’s straight up betrayal. He’s stupid, she’s an a**hole.

  • shockexchange

    You’ve just out-shocked the Shock Exchange! *WOMP*

  • D

    I had never heard that about Barry Bond’s , but if your gonna tell every girl you sleep with your not paying taxes and taking steroids , you deserve it . Especially being in his position a multi million dollar a year top MLB player.

    Felton could have went to the police station or even called them to ask what steps he has to take to bring his already registered firearms into the state . I’m not defending her , in fact I’m saying why would he ever trust his ex wife with the gun in the first place , my first thought would be she’s gonna rat me out lol

  • shockexchange

    She is not his ex wife. She filed for divorce the say day she turned in the gun. And don’t come on here tryna catch fade ’cause the Canadian dollar has finally surpassed the US dollar. Drake #1 rapper, Canadian dollar strong, Raptors bout to make the playoffs – you Canadians are starting to feel yourselves.

  • D

    lol next you’ll be blaming us for bieber

  • shockexchange

    Yeah, you Canadians are winnin’ son!

  • redbeard

    Fordham is not in the Ivy League lol

  • Cathy Parsons

    A responsible gun owner knows the laws of the state

  • ManAmongAnts

    Maybe she is. But you don’t know either of them. You don’t what happened behind closed doors to cause her to do something like that. That’s a lot of judgement from a keyboard analyst. I’m not saying many things justify what she did, but for all we know he could have given her herpes or something. The point is, people now have become overly opinionated on these celebrities and athlete’s personal relationships, and the truth is that no one will ever truly know the dynamics of a stranger’s relationship. And really, the only thing that matters is Felton is ultimately responsible for this whole gun incident. If you’re dumb enough to have a gun with armor piercing bullets in NYC, you’re likely too dumb to not get caught.

  • Richie

    Most men today are more female than the women y’all blame for your own stupidity. If your logic is that the woman will try to bring him down anyway, then he deserved it by virtue of not being man enough to get a good woman. Keep the crybaby narrative, but don’t try to cloak it in some fake macho bs. Felton either wasn’t man enough to deserve a better woman, or he did something egregious enough for her to do something like this. Too many “men” looking outward when placing blame for problems. Shock, if you’re so worried about women being scorned, just date men openly. That’s what ya’ll need to do if you’re so hell bent on whining like teen girls. The rest of us real men will continue to not have to deal with Felton like problems with our wives.

  • pete

    No it isn’t. Cornell is, which is where she studied as an undergrad.

  • GP

    Don’t forget whipping the Americans’ a** in Olympics hockey.

  • GP

    “a scorned woman, with whom you have shared secrets with, is going to get back at you somehow.”

    That sounds so jaded lol.

  • shockexchange

    You nor the Shock Exchange has a clue of whether Felton is a “real man” or whether his wife is a “good woman”, or what did or did not occur in their marriage. The only thing the Shock Exchange can confirm is that Felton’s wife is dry snitching to the point where he could eventually be “making big rocks small.” As far as “whining teens” or whatever, SE has handed out “fiddy” in parks in every major U.S. city and several continents. He’ll just leave it at that.

  • shockexchange

    Just because it’s jaded doesn’t mean it’s not the truth. The Shock Exchange heard it here first > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pdov7l1V8xk

  • shockexchange

    GP there’s only so much more of this American bashing SE is gonna take. It’s bad enough Drake – rap’s Keith Sweat – is on top of the charts. Either pick a park or knock off the nonsense.

  • tom2

    Many states don’t register legal firearms because they accept the 2nd Amendment as law. Last I heard, all dealers conduct background checks on unlicensed buyers but that’s a far distance from registration for which the democrats dream. The philosophical difference is most states focus licensing and checking on the people in lieu of the firearms. They know the source of the problem lies with the felons and nuts. They know if you deny the felons and nuts, they’ll just use knives, dogs, clubs, cars, fuels, arrows and a million other things. At the end, they know you cannot register everything.

  • Castro Fidelis

    First off, all of you sound like idiots. First, she filed for divorce last week, not at the same time she turned in the gun. Second of all she had repeatedly requested him to remove the gun from the house which he refused to do. Third, she didn’t do it out of spite because she first went to her lawyer and tried to give him the gun which he refused to take because of the strict gun laws in NYC. Fourth after she had ran out of options, she brought the gun to the police. If she really did this to spite him, then why initially try to give the gun to her lawyer instead of going straight to the police? All you people speaking have no knowledge of the facts surrounding the situation therefore you sound like fools. Stick to debating mindless basketball minutiae.

  • Richie

    Exactly. You don’ t know what happened in their marriage, so stop whining like it’s merely a case of scorned woman. Only a simpleton can jump to such simple conclusions with his only reference being news papers and tabloids. ‘A woman scorned’ is akin to ‘she just mad and being vindictive’. The implication is dismissive of whatever reasoning she may have for going to the police, which you don’t know. Cats like you just seem bitter over your own failure with women. Some of us are actually man enough to handle our sh!t without sounding like jaded, borderline Jason Collins, responsibility shirkers.

  • shockexchange

    Okay. The fact that Felton’s wife (i) filed for divorce and (ii) tried to get him locked up on the same day is all one big happenstance. She’s not mad or vindictive. This is normal course behavior for her. This is simply “matter of fact.” The Shock Exchange would also say “the sky is blue” or “water is wet”, but some random person on the Internet may call him jaded, so he’ll be quiet.

  • guest

    For all this “man’s” talk, he’s not able to grasp that dude might go to prison because of this. I guess anyone who points that out is on some “borderline jason collins” sh*t.

  • guest

    We’re all just blowing off steam on an inconsequential comment board dude relax. I mean, I get that you’re a “man among ants” so just leave us simple creatures to our simple lives.

  • shockexchange

    Exactly.
