  1. Reality television star Kim Kardashian applauded New Zealand after the country’s leaders announced gun laws would change in wake of Friday’s mosque shootings that left at least 49 people dead. Kardashian tweeted Saturday, “Just 24 hours after the Christchurch shooting New Zealand bans semiautomatic guns! America take note! Why can’t our elected officials put public safety over gun manufacturers’ profits?!?!” 18K people are talking about this Following Friday’s shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern vowed to change the country’s gun laws, though she didn’t immediately specify how. "I can tell you right now, our gun laws will change," Ardern said. "Now is the time for change." David Parker, the country’s attorney general, said New Zealand would ban semiautomatic weapons at a vigil Saturday but backtracked his comments later, The New York Timesreported. “Those decisions have yet to be taken, but the Prime Minister has signaled that we are going to look at that issue,” Parker told Radio New Zealand. New Zealand citizens as young as 16, provided they pass a background check to get a firearms license, can possess a long gun. They can get one for hunting, pest control or sports shooting, but self-defense is not considered a valid reason to own a firearm. This is not the first time Kardashian has called for gun control in the U.S. Following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018, the social media personality called on Congress to do their job. 97.7K people are talking about this “We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school,” she tweeted. “Prayers won’t do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violence.”
  2. LINKED FROM NEWS HERALD! PANAMA CITY BEACH — Despite a Facebook event making the rounds declaring otherwise, there is no nude streaking event coming to Pier Park next Sunday. According to the event post, the event was supposed to be at 11 p.m. on Sunday, March 17. The page generated a decent amount of interest, with 109 people marking that they would be attending and over 300 interested. Panama City Beach; however, and the Tourist Development Council, want people to know that the event is not affiliated with the TDC or Pier Park and that police are monitoring the event. “This is no way a TDC event,” said TDC spokesperson Catie Feeney in an email to the News Herald.
  3. Seems to me a lot to do about nothing. If they had backups what does it matter?
