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.

NFL enjoys record TV ratings despite Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson scandals (Shutdown Corner)


NFL TV ratings on the rise despite domestic violence fumble (Reuters)
By Eric Kelsey LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Americans are tuning into NFL football in greater numbers than last year, according to early season viewership figures, signaling the league's fumbled handling of domestic violence cases has not dented its overall popularity. Through the first three weeks of the season, audiences watching nationally televised primetime broadcasts have risen and nearly all networks have seen an uptick in viewership so far this season. ...

Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys, please rise (Shutdown Corner)
Let's be serious for a moment here. And I have to kick the really over-the-top crazy Dallas Cowboys fans out of the room now so we can have a real conversation. OK, good. Now ... what in the heck is going on in Dallas? Look, you didn't see this coming, I didn't see this coming, nobody did. But now there's no getting around it: The Dallas Cowboys look good. They look great. Had Tony Romo not made some big Week 1 mistakes against the 49ers, they might be 4-0 with some quality wins. I just don't know how we got here. The Cowboys didn't add much in the offseason, and the defense lost Jason Hatcher, DeMarcus Ware and Sean Lee. Romo was coming off back surgery. They've been the epitome of mediocre for years. All of a sudden, they're good. Logically, it makes little sense. Sunday night's dominant win over the Saints was their statement that they're for real. Now, "for real" comes and goes in the NFL in 2014 as quickly as Jon Gruden compliments a mundane play on "Monday Night Football." Teams look great one week and incompetent seven days later. Nothing is permanent. But right now, the Cowboys deserve a huge bump up the rankings. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli would get my coach of the year vote at this point. He has been that good. The Cowboys' offense has reinvented itself by building around DeMarco Murray and a great run-blocking offensive line. They deserve all the credit you can give them. I guess that's the beauty of the NFL. Things that are completely unforeseen can actually happen. We're seeing it in Dallas. Here are the post-Week 4 power rankings: 32. Oakland Raiders (0-4, LW: 31) Head coach Dennis Allen got fired, and general manager Reggie McKenzie can't be far behind. Remember, they have the oldest roster in the NFL. Bad, bad, bad. 31. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4, LW: 30) No one player is going to totally turn this team around, not even a huge upgrade at quarterback. They're just not good at all. But they're also very young and you'd assume they'll improve as this season goes on. 30. Washington Redskins (1-3, LW: 28) Or maybe I was right to be skeptical of Kirk Cousins. 29. Tennessee Titans (1-3, LW: 23) How in the world did they look so good at Kansas City in Week 1? That's the weirdest result of the NFL season so far, right?
