Sport Gun Panther's emphatic response as Dogs move looms
NRA Adds About 225K Paying Members Since January, Now Has Over 5M Registered
The NRA now boasts more than 5 million dues-paying members, and its controversial leader, Wayne LaPierre, continues to raise funds by selling himself as an aggressive guardian of the Second Amendment right to bear arms. LaPierre has positioned the NRA as the opposition to Democratic administrations. In 2016, he spent more than $30 million to support Donald Trump's campaign, according to data from the Federal Election Commission. After mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump initially pledged to take action on extensive background checks for gun purchases but dropped the promise after a phone call with the NRA.
Departing Panthers star Matt Burton has responded to criticism - his own included - in emphatic fashion, turning in an exceptional second half as Penrith threatened to pull off an epic comeback against Cronulla.
The future Bulldog ultimately wasn't able to lift the Panthers to victory from 18-0 down at half-time, veteran Sharks playmaker Shaun Johnson defusing the surge when he wobbled over a 79th-minute goal.
But Burton's second-half performance would have Canterbury officials feeling much more excited about his looming arrival than they were last week, after the 21-year-old crossed for two tries, made a series of dangerous runs and controlled the game with clinical kicking.
San Jose mayor rolls out new gun control proposal days after railyard mass shooting
California has more gun restrictions on the books than any other state, but the mayor of San Jose wants to add ten more. California's third-largest city will take up a proposal to, among other things, require gun stores to audio and video record gun sales, require proof of liability insurance for all gun owners and implement a tax to cover costs associated with gun violence.
His brilliant running game was on full display in both of his tries, the Dubbo product piercing Cronulla's defence from close range with electric surges.
Burton, who's set to play at five-eighth for Trent Barrett's Bulldogs next season, was underwhelming in replacing NSW Blues rookie Jarome Luai in the No.6 jumper last week. He failed to have a genuine impact as Wests Tigers strangled the Panthers in a 26-6 win.
But tonight's second-half performance at Kogarah Oval drew the praise of several expert Nine commentators, including rugby league guru Phil Gould.
"He's a genuine five-eighth but he's played so little of it over the last couple of years with COVID and the way the Panthers are going," Gould said after Burton crossed for his first try on the back of a classy left-foot step.

"I cannot believe this happened," neighbor Maria Rocha said, adding that she "didn't sleep all night.""I just hope that he didn't suffer, you know what I mean?" neighbor Maria Rocha said, according to WPVI-TV. "I hope he didn't suffer, that it was quick.
"Catches the ball on the out, stop on the left foot. Bang. That's perfect for a half close to the line."
Burton will return to the centres to play alongside Stephen Crichton for the Panthers' clash with the Roosters next Friday, as Luai and Nathan Cleary slot back into the halves after Origin I duties.
Performances like tonight in the second half show exactly why Penrith were so pushy, even after he'd put pen to paper on his Canterbury deal.
"He's such a talented young player," said former Jillaroo Ruan Sims.
"For a young man who's gone back into the halves after not playing there all season, to show the resilience, to have the first half he did, to bounce back and have the second half that he did - that's special."
After last week's loss to the Tigers, Panthers coach Ivan Cleary, as well as Fox League experts Braith Anasta and Michael Ennis, all gave grim reviews on Burton's performance at five-eighth.
Burton himself labelled his game "disappointing" and "just not good enough" on Nine's coverage, before striking back in tremendous style tonight.
Burton will arrive at the Bulldogs at the end of this year along with young teammate Brent Naden and Storm flyer Josh Addo-Carr.
