    Good thing Harbaugh allowed him to play. If Rex had allowed Aldon to play after his alcohol issues and a weapons charge the media would call for his head. Harbaugh gets a pass and berates anyone that dares challenge his decision.

    Rehab for guns?


    San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith started for the team and played against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, which confused a lot of people who wondered why Smith was on the field at all. On Friday morning, Smith was arrested for suspicion of DUI after crashing into a tree and registering a .15 blood alcohol level. It was his second DUI arrest in less than two years, and head coach Jim Harbaugh took a lot of heat when he said later Friday that Smith would play.

    It appears, however, that whatever strategy the 49ers were using before has changed. Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported after the Colts’ 27-7 win that Smith’s locker at Candlestick Park was empty, and that his was the only empty locker in the area. Then, team CEO Jed York announced that Smith would not play next Thursday against the St. Louis Rams, and Maiocco followed up with the news that there was no timetable for Smith’s return. The team placed him on the non-football injury list Monday afternoon.

    After the game, Smith addressed the media: “I want to apologize. I will work to get it fixed.”

    York was far more expressive in his postgame statement.

    “We support Aldon and Aldon’s willing to fight for himself and try to make this right,” York said. “And I will stand here and I will take any shots that anybody wants to write [about] the organization, you can direct them to me and I will support Aldon as long as he’s willing to work at this and fight to get better.”

    Wasn't inferring that Goodson had a weapon only that rehab was to look better in the eyes of the court.

    He was charged with it. I haven't seen any report of the charge being dropped. Have you?

    Also, isn't it kind of weird that Smith is being charged with a weapons charge from a house party in 2012 only now? Must have been some kind of house party that took a year to investigate.

    I don't think California has anywhere near the strict firearm laws of NY (ala Plaxico) so he's probably not going to jail for four years. Most likely, he gets a lengthy probation and at worst some time in jail that they arrange to be in the offseason.

    But what kind of parties is he hosting where he's shooting weapons and getting stabbed?

    Don't know about that..this is SF we are talking about. From CA law, and an AR-15 is an 'assault' weapon as defined by CA law:


    “ASSAULT WEAPONS”, .50 CALIBER BMG RIFLES AND MAGAZINES
    It is unlawful to offer for manufacture, sale, give or lend any “assault weapon” or .50 caliber BMG rifle. It is unlawful to possess an “assault weapon” or a .50 caliber BMG rifle unless it is properly registered with the state.
    The registration period for “assault weapons” and .50 caliber BMG rifles has ended. If an individual has an unregistered” assault weapon” or .50 caliber BMG rifle after the registration period has ended, law enforcement would prefer that they turn the "assault weapon" in to law enforcement. Anyone with a registered “assault weapon” or .50 caliber BMG rifle wishing to legally dispose of the firearm can:

    sell it to a dealer with an “assault weapons” permit (for such firearms) and .50 caliber BMG rifle permit (for such rifles) or with both types of permits;
    relinquish it to local law enforcement (after making an appointment);
    remove the “assault weapon” or .50 BMG caliber rifle from the state; or,
    destroy it.
    Any person inheriting a registered “assault weapon” or .50 caliber BMG rifle has 90 days to render the weapon permanently inoperable, sell to an approved firearms dealer, obtain a permit from the Department of Justice to possess firearms, or move the gun out of state. Pawning “assault weapons” and .50 caliber BMG rifles is not permitted.

    California law defines “assault weapons” in two ways:

    firearms listed on the original Roberti Roos assault weapons law or in the California Code of Regulations.
    by the specific generic characteristics.
    A further explanation of firearms considered “assault weapons” can be found on the Department of Justice website.

    A person may lend a registered “assault weapon” or a .50 caliber BMG caliber rifle to another person who is:

    18 years of age or over if the person to whom the “assault weapon” is lent is not prohibited from possessing a firearm and remains in the presence of the registered possessor, and
    the “assault weapon” or .50 caliber BMG rifle is possessed at a licensed target range, or at the target range of a public or private club organized for the purpose of practicing shooting at targets, or at an exhibition, display or education project sponsored by a law enforcement agency or a nationally or state recognized firearms entity.
    Persons moving into California must comply with the provisions of the law before moving.

    Unless otherwise specified, registered “assault weapons” may only be possessed:

    at registrant’s residence, place of business, or other property owned by such registrant, or on property owned by another with permission.
    at certain recognized target ranges or shooting clubs.
    at certain recognized exhibitions.
    while on publicly owned land upon which possession and use of “assault weapons” is specifically permitted by the managing agency.
    while transporting the assault weapon between any of the places listed above, or to any licensed gun dealer.
    It is unlawful for any person to manufacture, import, or offer for sale, give, or lend any ammunition magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds (not including .22 tube magazines). Exceptions include:

    a loan of a lawfully possessed magazine to a person who is not prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition, if such loan occurs at a place where possession of the magazine is not otherwise prohibited and the person who lends the magazine remains in the accessible vicinity to the person to whom the magazine is loaned;
    the importation of a magazine by a person who lawfully possessed the magazine in the state prior to January 1, 2000, lawfully took it out of the state and is returning to the state;
    the sale or purchase of a magazine to or by a person licensed to sell firearms; and
    the lending or giving of a magazine to a licensed dealer or gunsmith for repair and its return to its owner.


    Can you buy an AR-15 in NY? You can't in CA...unless it's severely modified.

    Well I didn't read the weapon before, but if it's an assault weapon, then that changes a lot of things, just by in possession. You could buy an AR-15 in NY, until recently I believe, but the school shooting put that to end.
