Cory Gunz was arrested the other day on a charge of gun possession, which he says is was all a big mistake.
After his father, Peter Gunz, posted his bail for $30,000, the younger Gunz spoke to the Daily News on his arrest:
"This was a big mistake on my part. I didn't have any intentions of harming anyone or committing a criminal activity. So many young people look up to me and I need to fight though this."
If Gunz is convicted on this charge he will face a mandatory minimum sentence of three and a half years.
"It's been really hard, really stressful," Gunz said. "When the smoke finally clears people will understand what was going on."
Peter Gunz was also saddened by his sons arrest, saying that they have recently started a campaign, "Gunz Against Guns," where they speak at schools in the Bronx area to discourage them from deadly weapons.
"I was pretty sad seeing my son in handcuffs and sitting in a cell," the elder Gunz said. "Never in a million years would I think that he would have a gun."
Gunz also remembered the time he faced the same charge that his son faces now, he was also 24 at the time:
"It's heartbreaking. Now I know how my father felt when I had the exact situation."
"It's like deja vu all over again and now I got a taste of the same medicine that I gave my dad when he was sitting in the court."
