THE GUN
By Brujo Blanco

A suburban neighborhood of New York City has published a list of gun owners in that community. This information was put on an interactive map for all to see. One of the comments put regarding this was now the criminals have a map disclosing who does not have guns in the house. The anti-gunners have provided a hit list for criminals.

When I read about these things I wonder what these people are trying to accomplish. One thing I would like to emphasize these anti gun people have a right to collect public information and publish it. That being said they are apparently trying to demonize people who have firearms. Perhaps they thought that they would make a targets out of the evil gun people.

There is an old saying and that is “If guns are outlawed only criminals will have guns.” This has become a truism in light of the gun confiscations in Australia and the UK. Criminals by definition break the law. We may end up having a situation where criminals are encouraged to use guns when the law abiding have no guns. The murder rate in Australia spiked when the guns were taken. Also, they had to come up with new laws to cover armed home invasions.

It has always interested me that when they talk about taking guns they want to take guns away from people who do not use guns for criminal activity while constructively ignoring the people who use guns for crime. If guns are taken can you imagine the value of a firearm on the black market?

I remember there was an article about the firearms tun in in the UK when a Member of Parliament lamented that he had no idea that the criminals would not turn in their firearms. He apparently was not paying attention to all sides of the issue. This comment was made when they realized that there were 3 million illegal guns on the street possessed by criminal elements. In the UK and other places the Islamic wackos I believe will support the gun turn in. This could seriously result in an armed Islamic military force within many countries that have a rapidly growing Muslim population. The head Imam in the UK has stated that they will do what they have to do to seize the UK from the non-believers to include killing them.

Islamic terrorists will not turn in their firearms and other criminals will follow suite.

I was listening to a politician who claimed that he is a gun owner and believes that something has to be done about all the guns. He also mentioned that he likes to hunt with his guns. Well, what a guy! He likes to hunt with his guns. The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is a right to keep and bear arms period. The real underlying reasoning for the 2nd Amendment is that people not only have a right to defend themselves they have a duty to defend themselves.

Union appeals Rice's indefinite suspension by NFL (The Associated Press)
The NFL players' union appealed Ray Rice's indefinite suspension Tuesday night. Rice was originally handed a two-game suspension in July under the NFL's personal conduct policy after he was charged with assault following a Feb. 15 altercation with his then-fiancee in a casino elevator. Within hours, the Ravens released Rice and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell extended the suspension to indefinite based on the ''new evidence.'' Goodell and the Ravens say they never saw the video before Sept. 8. ''This action taken by our union is to protect the due process rights of all NFL players,'' the NFL Players Association said in a statement.

Tomlin not worried as Steelers pile up penalties (The Associated Press)
Mike Tomlin's list of issues with the Steelers is lengthy. While the Pittsburgh Steelers have been flagged 20 times during their 1-1 start - the third-highest total in the league - Tomlin believes there's plenty of time for things to even out. ''Hopefully by the time we're able to compare this year to last or any year for that matter over a 16, 19-game schedule or 20-game schedule if you will (that) we'll have a better showing than we have to this point.'' The Steelers have typically been among the NFL's more well-behaved franchises during Tomlin's tenure. Pittsburgh was the 10th-most penalized team in 2010 and still went to the Super Bowl.

Program that accepted Rice rare in domestic cases (The Associated Press)
The offender-rehabilitation program former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice entered after knocking his fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator is rarely used in domestic assault cases - but whether that means he got special treatment depends who you ask. Only 70 of the more than 15,000 domestic violence assault cases adjudicated from 2010 to 2013 in New Jersey's Superior Court were admitted into the pretrial intervention program, according to records obtained by The Associated Press. Video released by TMZ Sports last week shows Rice punching Janay Rice, at the time his fiancee and now his wife, in the face and knocking her unconscious Feb. 15 at Revel Casino Hotel. Advocates for victims of domestic violence have accused investigators of being too lenient on Rice, and lawmakers have called for a review.
