  1. America’s love affair with guns is only getting stronger. New federal data shows that there are 422.9 million firearms in circulation, or about 1.2 guns for every person in the country. What’s more, despite years of criticism of modern “assault-style” rifles such as the AR-15 and AK-47, there are a record 17.7 million in private hands, proving that it is the most popular gun around. And last year alone, the arms industry produced 8.1 billion rounds of ammunition. The figures are from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and were crunched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry trade group. “These figures show the industry that America has a strong desire to continue to purchase firearms for lawful purposes,” said Joe Bartozzi, president of the NSSF, in a statement releasing the group’s new report. “The modern sporting rifle continues to be the most popular centerfire rifle sold in America today and is clearly a commonly owned firearm with more than 17 million in legal private ownership today. The continued popularity of handguns demonstrates a strong interest by Americans to protect themselves and their homes and to participate in the recreational shooting sports,” he said. Gun shops contacted by Secrets said that they are seeing more and more purchases of semiautomatic weapons such as handguns and AR-15s due to the criticism of those guns by 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. “Sales have definitely been brisk, especially of small, concealable handguns. We also saw a spike in sales of tactical rifles like AR-15s and AK-47s, for which I think we can confidently thank Beto O’Rourke,” said Justin Anderson, the marketing director for Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of the country’s biggest retailers. During his short presidential campaign, O'Rourke called for a ban on the rifles. Other details from the NSSF report, shared with Secrets: Of all rifles produced in 2017, 54% were modern sporting rifles. In 2017, 7,901,218 total firearms were produced and imported. Of those, 4,411,923 were pistols and revolvers, 2,821,945 were rifles, and 667,350 were shotguns. An interim 2018 estimate showed 7,660,772 total firearms were produced and imported. Of those, 4,277,971 were pistols and revolvers, 2,846,757 were rifles, and 535,994 were shotguns. Firearms-ammunition manufacturing accounted for nearly 12,000 employees producing more than $4.1 billion in goods shipped in 2017. An estimated 8.1 billion rounds, of all calibers and gauges, were produced in 2018 for the U.S. market.

  18. Someone won a $14.6 million lottery jackpot in Arizona. That would be really exciting -- if they had claimed it. Tickets expire after 180 days. The winning ticket was sold June 5 in Goodyear, Arizona, meaning the lucky ticket holder had until December 2 at 5 p.m. to claim the prize. But that deadline came and went. No one showed up to claim his or her prize. It's the largest prize ever in Arizona to go unclaimed. "To claim any prize of $600 or more, a winner needs to sign the back of their ticket and come to one of the Arizona Lottery's offices," Arizona Lottery public information officer John Gilliland told CNN on Tuesday. See Arizona Lottery's other Tweets "There is nothing more exciting for Arizona Lottery than to award a large jackpot, like this $14.6 million prize, so we are always a little sad when we see one of these prizes expire unclaimed," Gregg Edgar, executive director of the Arizona Lottery, said in a statement. It's not all that uncommon for a winning lottery ticket to go unclaimed, but the prize is usually much less than $14.6 million. There were $2.89 billion in unclaimed lottery prizes in the 12 months ending June 2017, lottery expert Brett Jacobson told CNN in 2018. And 167 prizes worth $1 million or more went unclaimed in fiscal 2017. The biggest-ever unclaimed prize was a $77 million winning ticket purchased in Georgia in June 2011. Up until Monday, the largest unclaimed prize in Arizona had been a $4 million jackpot back in 1999. In fiscal year 2019, Arizona Lottery saw more than $11.6 million go unclaimed, Gilliland said. Where that money goes is up to the state. In Arizona, about 30% goes to Court Appointed Special Advocates, a program where volunteers are appointed by a judge to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in court. Search for $98 million EuroMillions winner intensifies as location of winning ticket revealed Up to $250,000 goes to a program that gives thousands of Native American high school students the opportunity to take college courses for both high school and college credit, and up to $835,000 goes to the Internet Crimes Against Children task force to locate, prosecute and imprison people who sexually exploit children. The rest of the unclaimed prize money is used to fund prizes for new games and second-chance drawings. "These dollars will be utilized now to enhance our player's experiences with future games and fund a variety of beneficiaries that have tremendous impact for our community," Edgar said.
  19. A 13-year-old Florida girl was forced into having sex acts with hundreds of men in only a few weeks by alleged traffickers who nicknamed her “breadmaker” for how much money she made them, according to police. The girl told authorities she ran away from home in May, according to court documents cited by the Sun-Sentinel. The documents said she met a 19-year-old named Racquel Bijou, who allegedly got her involved in the prostitution business. Police said Bijou arranged for the teen to meet with men, some as old as 50. Bijou later brought in two associates: 22-year-old Jeremiah Horenstein and 25-year-old Ashton Lewinson, according to police. Prosecutors said Horenstein and Lewinson posted pictures of the teen on illicit websites that advertised commercial sex acts. On multiple occasions, the trio allegedly drove the girl to hotel rooms where she slept with hundreds of men in less than a month, according to police. Court documents suggested that the girl had a falling out with Horenstein and allegedly ended up being prostituted by another woman, 27-year-old Souprina Blanc. The girl’s family had alerted authorities within days of her disappearance, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Police used the girl’s phone records to track down a Miami residence, where they rescued her. In the home, they found Blanc and two unidentified people. Bijou and Horenstein were arrested in August, and Lewinson was arrested in November, per the Sun-Sentinel. They are all being held without bond. Blanc was arrested last week and appeared in magistrate court in Miami on Tuesday. She is being held without bond. All four are charged with sex trafficking a minor and face life in prison if convicted.
  20. It's December which means all your favorite Christmas specials are set to be broadcast. On Monday, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer will find itself in primetime. The 55-minute long special will air at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. As many know, the film spotlights Rudolph and his journey from an outsider to being the hero of Christmas and leading Santa's sleigh. It's what happens in between, though, that causes some viewers to feel uneasy. Early on in the episode, Rudolph finds himself needing to wear a fake black nose to hide his "different" red nose per his parent's request. He does so to avoid embarrassment, and ultimately is the center of the joke when it feels off and the other reindeer, besides Clarice, make fun of him. At one point, even Santa Clause gets in on the joke. 22 people are talking about this The scenes of bullying strike a chord with some home viewers. "Between Rudolph and Hermie...The North Pole seems like the most toxic work environment to ever exist. Ruthless bullying and then banishment to the Island of Misfit Toys," another user wrote. In 2018, one of the special's voice actors, defended the show in an interview with TMZ. "I don't think that by getting sensitive to bullying that you want to copy it... you want to get rid of it!" Conley said. "And certainly in Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, everyone is reconciled happily at the end of the movie and let's hope in today's society, the things that people are bullying about can also be rectified." Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer premiered in 1964. It was followed up a decade later by Rudolph's Shiny New Year in 1976. -----
  21. About half of voters in Florida disapprove of President Trump, posing a 2020 challenge for the president as he seeks to notch back-to-back electoral victories in the battleground state. The poll, conducted by the Saint Leo University Polling Institute and released Tuesday, found that 51.4 percent of Florida voters last month disapproved of the president’s job performance, down from 55 percent in a similar April survey. Trump garnered support from 45.6 percent of state voters, up from 40.4 percent in April. In 2016, Trump narrowly won Florida, beating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by less than 2 percentage points. Trump’s approval rating increased among both Florida respondents and nationwide voters, according to the poll. In November, 43.4 percent of U.S. voters polled said they approved of the president’s job performance, compared with 41.8 percent in April. “Although the president’s approval rating goes up and down slightly, opinions of his job performance are by now baked into the pumpkin pie,” said Frank Orlando, director of the Saint Leo University Polling Institute, in a statement. Support for the president splits sharply along party lines, with 85.5 percent of Republicans nationwide and 84 percent of Florida Republicans saying they support the president. Among independent voters, 39.6 percent nationwide approved Trump’s job performance, compared with 40.5 percent in Florida. Respondents also rated Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), with 68.2 percent of Florida voters saying they approved of his performance, up from 61.8 percent in April. Florida Sens.

  22. Netflix's The Irishman has been named the best film of 2019 by the National Board of Review, it was announced Tuesday. The pic was also honored with best adapted screenplay, for writer Steven Zaillian, with director Martin Scorsese and stars Robert De Niro and Al Pacino set to receive an Icon Award, which NBR introduced this year to honor "cinematic artists who have contributed meaningfully to the history, culture, and excellence of motion pictures." The NBR honors for Scorsese's highly anticipated, long-in-the-works crime epic come after the film was recognized with nominations for the AARP's Movies for Grownups Awards and honors at the Palm Springs and Santa Barbara film festivals and Hollywood Film Awards. The Irishman has received stellar reviews, boasting a 96 percent freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and is currently streaming on Netflix after hitting theaters on Nov. 1. The Irishman plaudits also come less than 24 hours after Netflix had a big night at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, with one of its other movies, Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story, winning four awards in a sweep. Marriage Story was listed as one of NBR's top films of the year. Other multiple honorees included Warner Bros.' Richard Jewell, Sony's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and A24's Uncut Gems, which received two awards apiece. Once Upon a Time helmer Quentin Tarantino was named best director, with the film's Brad Pitt also taking best supporting actor honors. Renée Zellweger was tapped as best actress for her work in Judy, and Uncut Gems' Adam Sandler was named best actor. Uncut Gems writers Benny and Josh Safdie and Ronald Bronstein won best original screenplay honors; the Safdies also directed the film. The two awards for Clint Eastwood's latest film, Richard Jewell, went to Kathy Bates (best supporting actress) and Paul Walter Hauser (breakthrough performance). Other major winners include Melina Matsoukas (best directorial debut for Queen & Slim), How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (best animated feature), Parasite (best foreign language film), Maiden (best documentary), Knives Out (best ensemble) and Roger Deakins (best cinematography for his work on 1917). NBR's Freedom of Expression Awards went to For Sama and Just Mercy. “We are thrilled to award The Irishman as our best film — Martin Scorsese’s masterful mob epic is a rich, moving, beautifully textured movie that represents the best in what cinema can be," NBR president Annie Schulhof said in a statement. "We are also excited to be presenting Scorsese, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino with our inaugural Icon Award — they are the true definition of cinematic icons, each with their own exceptional body of work, and all in top form in The Irishman.” The organization's honors are voted on by a group of film enthusiasts, professionals, academics, filmmakers and students. Last year, NBR selected future best picture Oscar winner Green Book as its best film. The previous year it picked The Post. In 2016, NBR picked Manchester by the Sea, and in 2015 the top honor went to Mad Max: Fury Road. While all of those films earned Academy Award nominations, NBR has a mixed track record in terms of predicting Oscar contenders. In 2014, the organization selected A Most Violent Year as its best film, but the J.C. Chandor-directed drama about New York in 1981 was completely snubbed by the Oscars. The year before, NBR chose Spike Jonze's Her as its best film. That movie won only one Oscar, for best original screenplay. Previous NBR best film winners include Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Hugo (2011), The Social Network (2010) and Up in the Air (2009). The latest winners will be recognized during a Jan. 8 gala at New York's Cipriani 42nd Street, hosted, as they were last year, by NBC News' Willie Geist.
