    Democratic Rep. Mondaire Jones of New York is on the emergency panel to discuss gun reform legislation Thursday. The hearing has predictably gone the way gun safety legislation hearings always go with the bought and paid for Republican Party. Democrats call for a series of modest gun safety protections. The Republican Party attacks this with a devil’s three-pronged pitchfork: calls to wait and see; claims that the Democratic Party is trying to steal your guns and take away your rights; and assertions that gun laws don’t do anything to stop gun violence—which we know because we’ve never had any, and it’s going so great without them. There’s a fourth prong, but it is more of the general blood money mantra of the conservative death cult: We need more guns. During Thursday’s hearing, Rep. Jones used his time to set the record straight not only on the history of the Second Amendment’s interpretation by the Supreme Court in our country and the radical change to that interpretation that the radical right-wing court made in 2008, but also how perverted the conservative decision in District...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The mother of the young man shot and killed while protecting his girlfriend during a robbery near Temple University is speaking out. While a viewing is being held Friday night for Temple student Samuel Collington, who was murdered just off campus earlier this week, the mother of 18-year-old Ahmir Jones, who was shot to death last month near the university, is preparing to bury her son.

The victim’s mother says she’s not ready to bury her son. “I would never in a million years expect that my son is gone and I’m never gonna see him again,” Melody Jones said. Sitting on her front porch and fighting through tears, Melody Jones says her oldest son’s death happened just months before he was set to graduate from Pottstown High School. “I just want to know why. Why would you just want to take my son’s life over nothing?” she said. She says her 18-year-old son, Ahmir Jones, was shot and killed...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are having serious issues protecting their quarterback. After being sacked only 24 times all of last season, Ryan Tannehill has been taken down 17 times — most in the NFL through four games. Only Carson Wentz of Indianapolis (35) and New England’s Mac Jones (34) have been hit more than Tannehill (32). Not only is Tannehill taking a beating, it’s a big reason why the Titans are off to a 2-2 start. And there’s plenty of blame to go around. “It’s been everyone,” Tannehill said Wednesday. “I don’t think you can pin it on any one group or any one person. I think everyone has played a part and as a group, we just have to clean it up. We’ve had opportunities and we’re this far away for a lot of reasons on different plays.” The Titans are moving the ball well on offense. They rank ninth averaging 394.5 yards a game and fifth in time of possession. They’re third in first downs per game. But a team that...
    BOSTON (CBS) — If the Patriots want to bounce back from their Week 1 loss to the Dolphins, the team knows they’re going to have to do a much better job keeping Mac Jones clean. The rookie quarterback took a beating against Miami, something center David Andrews seemed to take personal when chatting with reporters on Monday afternoon. Andrews was impressed with Jones’ performance in his NFL debut, with the quarterback completing 29 of his 39 passes in the face of some serious pressure by the Miami pass rush. Despite having a defender in his face on most snaps, Jones stood in the pocket and was able to go through his reads like an experienced vet. READ MORE: Report: Trent Brown Day To Day With Calf Strain But Jones was knocked down quite a but on Sunday, and Andrews wants to see that change going forward. “I thought Mac showed a lot of mental toughness. He did some things really well. We have to do a little better job protecting him at times. I think he took too many hits,”...
    A California man whose brother was killed by an illegal immigrant slammed the Biden administration for refusing to admit that there is a crisis at the southern border and said the situation is getting worse by the minute. "If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it’s not a cow, it’s a duck," Jody Jones said. "So don’t sit there and tell me there’s not a crisis down at the border, because there is." During an appearance on "Fox & Friends," Jones said that the influx of migrants is "destroying" communities in California, with border crossings in the month of March hitting historic levels. He added that the administration’s policies have driven a wedge between local law enforcement and immigration officers, making it difficult for them to communicate. SOTU GUEST WHOSE BROTHER WAS MURDERED: PELOSI 'RIPPED OUR HEARTS OUT' WITH HER ACTIONS "All you hear is law enforcement agencies screaming for help and there’s nothing being done," Jones said. Jones claimed that recently proposed legislation in the state of California, specifically bill AB 937, would essentially make it...

But that irony may have a darker, deeper layer: Mother Jones has uncovered that Jim Watkins, the owner of 8chan and its successor site, 8kun, controls a company that hosted scores of domains whose names suggest they are connected to child pornography. Watkins’ company hosted scores of domains apparently connected to child pornography. While Mother Jones did not visit the domains because of strict laws related to viewing child sex abuse material, internet registration and hosting data suggest at a minimum that Watkins profited from domains with names explicitly related to pedophilia—the very thing that QAnon followers say that they’re motivated to end. The domains’ names include terms such as “preteen,” “schoolgirl,” and “child” alongside graphic terms for...
    A security guard assigned to protect a ballot drop box in northeast Baltimore was shot early Thursday, according to police. CBS Baltimore reports it happened around 4:55 a.m. a box at the Achievement Academy. Police said the unarmed security guard was sitting in his car at the time of the shooting. Surveillance video reportedly shows multiple armed suspects approaching the vehicle and trying to open the door. When the man didn't open it, they began shooting. The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox Investigators are looking into the shooting as a possible attempted robbery. The ballot box apparently wasn't tampered with and didn't appear to be the suspects' focus. "Right now, the box was not tampered with," Board of Elections Director Armstead Jones told reporters. The Maryland Board of Elections said it's working with authorities in the investigation. With the unusual voting style because of COVID-19, drop box locations and their security has been a top priority for state and local leaders. Now, these efforts are being ramped up. "We're going...
    N.Y. Post: Charles Wenzelberg The Giants are Hollywood swinging for the first time since 1994. They haven’t made the trip to Los Angeles in more than  25 years. They will go there without fans in the building, against a team that is scoring 30-plus points like it’s a walk in the park. The Giants are just trying to crack double digits after a nine-point, no-touchdown train wreck against the 49ers’ B-team last week at MetLife Stadium.

They have to be careful though, because of the fumbles and keeping him healthy, because nobody wants to...

    The Colorado branch of the National Lawyers Guild is castigating what it describes as "increasing violence and repression against protesters in the Denver Metro Area at the hands of and condoned by police." Singled out for criticism is Governor Jared Polis, for referring to acts of "criminal terrorism" in a tweet about violence that followed a peaceful protest in late August, and the Denver Police Department, which attorney Jessica Eve Jones, a volunteer organizer for the Colorado NLG, says has been arresting some demonstrators simply for donning helmets and other gear meant to protect them should they be attacked by officers suited up for battle. Jones compares the tactic to Minority Report, a 2002 Tom Cruise movie based on a novel by science-fiction author Philip K. Dick, in which people are charged for crimes they're supposed to commit in the future before actually doing anything wrong. "It is insane," she says. In the National Lawyers Guild statement, Jones takes on Polis for implying that protesters are criminal terrorists: "To have the Governor of Colorado equate property destruction as terrorism yet...
