    Unconstitutional: Whenever we see the Left moving to implement a new rule or law governing the use, handling, or ownership of firearms we are reminded of the very simple language of the Second Amendment, which reads in full: A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Liberal and conservative scholars and lawmakers have debated the meaning of “militia” and whether or not the founders meant that the Second Amendment applied only to organized state military forces. But others have noted that based...

    ...Although [Sylvester Stallone has] been called a Republican, for supporting John McCain's 2008 presidential run, Stallone says he's not a member of the GOP. "May the best fighter win," he said. "I don't think you can be totally one-sided forever. Then you close your mind to all sorts of possibilities. It's just, 'Who comes along better at that time for what the planet is going through?' Right now, it's pretty confusing on every side." What does he think of the Republican frontrunner? "I love Donald Trump," he said. "He's a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean? There are...

    ... Stallone [was] nominated for Best Actor for playing "Rocky" in 1977. (Peter Finch won for "Network.") He has never been nominated since then. But his work is so good now as the boxing coach for Jordan's Adonis Creed, Stallone is very likely to sweep in and surprise everyone. (This would be bad news for the many other potential nominees from "Spotlight" and other films.) "Creed" is a total hit, a must see movie for Thanksgiving weekend. Coogler is 29 years old and this is second movie, after the wonderful "Fruitvale Station" Not only has be brought Jordan over from...

    Of all the people this unfortunate man could have picked a fight with, he just had to chose a former world champion. Minding his own business, Rocky Lockridge, who in his prime beat Roger Mayweather, uncle of Floyd, to win the WBA super-featherweight title, is approached by a man shouting abuse. He faces up to the former boxer while onlookers attempt to persuade Lockridge not to take action. But he ignores them and delivers a left-right combination which leaves his aggressor out cold.

    Tommy Morrison, the former heavyweight champion who stood toe-to-toe with Lennox Lewis and George Foreman and later tested positive for HIV, died Monday. He was 44... He was a prodigious puncher whose bid to fight in the 1988 Seoul Olympics ended at the hands of Ray Mercer, who later dealt Morrison his first professional loss. He had a starring role in "Rocky V" alongside Sylvester Stallone. And perhaps most memorably, Morrison tested positive for HIV when the virus still carried a significant stigma, only to declare later the test was false...

    ... Producers said Sunday they plan to get “Rocky” up and punching at the Winter Garden Theatre by February following a successful debut in Hamburg last fall. Based on the Oscar-winning 1976 film, the musical features a score by “Ragtime” veterans Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, and a story by Thomas Meehan, who wrote “The Producers” and “Hairspray.” Originally written in English but translated into German for its world premiere and billed as “Rocky: Das Musical,” the show is produced by Stallone and Stage Entertainment USA. ... The musical stays close to the film, which charted the rise and romance...

    AUTHOR Eric C Bartholomew has photographed lots of animals – elephants, tigers, wild boar – but none were as tricky to capture as Thanet's albino squirrel. The 67-year-old scribbler, of St Lawrence Chase, Ramsgate, spotted the white wonder in a park close to Ramsgate's Royal Esplanade on Monday, April 16. Wildlife experts estimate that the odds of a pure white squirrel being born are one in 100,000. Mr Bartholomew, a safari lover, chased the rare rodent around the park for 20 minutes before he got his shot at about 7am. He said: "I was in the right place at the...

    They are marauding gangs of troublemakers who set fire to cars, cut electrical wires and cause power outages, evading capture by scaling walls and climbing trees. But while the Queens co-op residents being terrorized by the daredevil vandals say they know exactly who their tormentors are, they insist that they’re helpless in stopping the crime wave — because the suspects are sex-happy squirrels. “It’s like Occupy Wall Street here,” lamented Bob Friedrich, president of the under-siege co-op at Glen Oaks Village. “It’s gotten worse in the past six months. We’re getting calls that they are in people’s apartments.”

    Ivan Drago. He was the soulless, socialist automaton of our 80s imagination, threatening to smash America’s Apollo Creedian hubris under his monstrous fists. This week, the man who played perhaps the most iconic Communist character of 80s cinema (Sorry, moustachioed dudes of “Red Dawn”) reflected on why he left his home country for America in an interview with Adam Carolla. Swedish-born Dolph Lundgren, already a karate champion, came to America as an engineering student. Somewhere between MIT and martial-arts tournaments, he became a body guard for Grace Jones, was photographed by Andy Warhol, and got cast as a virtual unknown...

    Republican challenger Rocky Raczkowski has the lead over first-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Gary Peters in the 9th congressional district, an independent weekly tracking poll released Wednesday indicates. The automated poll conducted Sept. 13 of 300 likely voters in the 9th congressional district and 400 likely voters statewide has Raczkowski at 45 percent and Peters at 40.7 percent with 10.3 percent undecided. The poll was conducted by The Rossman Group in partnership with Team TelCom. Kelly Rossman, CEO and founder of the Lansing-based Rossman Group, says Raczkowski is benefiting from the sour mood of voters towards Congress. "It's no secret that...
