    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2018/05/16/the-story-behind-the-viral-photo-of-a-kent-state-graduate-posing-with-her-cap-and-a-rifle/?utm_term=.ecb58f21e79b The college graduate shared the pictures at a time when conservatives in Congress have pushed legislation to allow those with concealed-carry permits in one state to carry their concealed weapons in all 50 states. The president and other Republicans have also talked about arming teachers following the Parkland school massacre. Bennett, who was raised by a Republican family in Zanesville, Ohio, knew her photo would provoke backlash. She’d found herself at the center of controversy on campus plenty of times before. Just three weeks ago, she co-organized an open-carry demonstration that invited nearby residents to bring their firearms to the university. (Kent State University bans students, staff and faculty from carrying “deadly weapons,” according to its website. State law allows graduates and visitors to openly carry weapons on campus, but only outdoors, according to university spokesman Eric Mansfield.) But Bennett never imagined the photo would spread so rapidly across the country. In the photo, Bennett is wearing a white dress and wedge heels. Her brother’s AR-10 rifle, equipped with a scope, is slung over her shoulder. In her hand is her black graduation cap, marked with the rifle cutout and the words “COME AND TAKE IT.” The historic slogan dates back to the Revolutionary War and the Texas Revolution against Mexico, she said, when Texan rebels fashioned a flag with the phrase over the image of a cannon as a sign of their defiance.

Then, someone made a fake website for his wife’s interior design business, altering images of artwork to show photos of child gun-violence victims. Last week, two gun-control activists protested outside Cox’s Alexandria, Va., home and handed out fliers outside his wife’s nearby business. “Mr. and Mrs. Cox have been targeted over the past few months by repeated acts of criminal and unlawful conduct, including having their home vandalized on two occasions,” Elizabeth Locke, attorney for the Cox family, said in a statement. “These coordinated tactics have crossed the line of civility and human decency.” An attorney for Patricia Hill, the alleged vandal, did not immediately provide a comment regarding the fake-blood incidents. The other protesters say they have been careful not to cross legal lines and knew nothing of the vandalism. They are all part of a growing movement that insists gun-control advocacy should be more aggressive — and more personal.

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/20/us/florida-high-school-shooting/index.html A student was wounded and a suspect is in custody after a shooting Friday morning at a high school in Ocala, Florida, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

  8. http://people.com/tv/stranger-things-creators-sued/ In a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles and obtained by PEOPLE, Charlie Kessler accuses Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer of “misappropriation, unauthorized use and exploitation” of his 2012 short film, Montauk, as well as his script for The Montauk Project. Kessler describes his film as a “science fiction story set in the town of Montauk, New York, the location of various urban legends and paranormal and conspiracy theories” with the primary location of the story an “abandoned military base.” In the lawsuit, Kessler also claims he pitched the Montauk idea to the Duffer brothers at an April 2014 party during the Tribeca Film Festival. “At this party, the script, ideas, story and film referred to were discussed and presented to [Matt and Ross],” he alleges. TMZ broke the story originally and then I ran across this: http://www.newsandtimes.com/2018/04/stranger-things-montauk-and-the-need-for-research/

  11. http://ew.com/tv/2018/03/28/time-travel-sharknado-movie-to-end-franchise/ Sharknado is closing its jaws for good. (Or until the inevitable reboot.) Syfy has ordered a sixth installment of the Sharknado franchise that will serve as its sign-off, EW has confirmed. Sharknado 6, which currently does not have a title with a groaningly amazing pun, is set to invade your living room this summer. The plot, should you care about such things, involves time travel.

    http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/broward/article206288209.html When Marjory Stoneman Douglas High students return from spring break the first week of April, they will only be allowed to use a clear backpack that will be provided to them. Students will also be required to wear identification badges at all times and could soon see metal detectors installed in the Parkland school, the site of a mass shooting last month that killed 17 students and educators. At least one Douglas student, 17-year-old Vincent Valdez, said he’d rather see the district eliminate backpacks altogether and invest in tablets for the students. “I don’t think I will feel any safer because we have clear backpacks or metal detectors,” said Vincent, who said he was shocked to learn about the knife incidents. “You can make up as many rules as possible, but what we need more of is enforcement.”

    Not exactly gun related, but to save from a new thread and this having to do with the walk out of students on Wednesday: http://www.arkansasmatters.com/news/local-news/parent-students-paddled-after-participating-in-walkout/1049088398 LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Some Arkansas students have been disciplined with a paddling after taking part in Wednesday's National Walkout Day. That's according to a Twitter post by a parent. We spoke with the school superintendent in Greenbrier who confirmed that three students participated in the walkout. He says no student came to school asking to participate in the walkout and had made no preparations. He adds that they were not reprimanded for protesting but for breaking school handbook rules in regards to leaving class. We're told the students were given the choice of suspension (usually 2 days) or corporal punishment for their participation in the walkout. Corporal punishment is a paddling and must be approved by a parent.
