U.S. Rep. Ralph Nor­man (R-S.C.) pulled out a loaded .38 cal­iber hand­gun in a con­stituent meet­ing on gun vi­o­lence, to demon­strate that guns “are not the prob­lem.” Nor­man said he car­ries the weapon be­cause “I’m not go­ing to be Gabby Gif­fords”—the Ari­zona con­gress­woman who was shot by a dis­turbed man. Con­stituent Lori Carter said Nor­man’s dis­play of a loaded gun dur­ing the meet­ing “felt like an in­tim­i­da­tion tac­tic.”

A Florida teenager says high school of­fi­cials pulled her into the nurse’s of­fice and told her to put Band-Aids over her “dis­tract­ing” nip­ples. Lizzy Martinez, 17, says mul­ti­ple staff mem­bers hu­mil­i­ated her by say­ing her breasts were both­er­ing other stu­dents. Her out­raged mom said, “We should not treat a girl like this be­cause of where her fat cells de­cided to dis­trib­ute ge­net­i­cally.”
