    “Texas School Threatens to Suspend Any Students Who Leave Class to Protest” http://time.com/5171089/texas-school-threatens-suspend-students-protest/ “It’s a quintessential First Amendment violation, and most Americans have an instinct about that,” Georgetown law professor Heidi Li Feldman told The Washington Post. “What’s really weird about this is that they announced they will suspend people over the content of their off-campus protest. Content-based restrictions on speech are anathema to the First Amendment. So this looks like a total problem.”

    “Asset manager BlackRock Inc said on Friday it is pressing gunmakers and weapons retailers in its portfolios to explain how they monitor firearm sales and use, and it is studying the creation of new index-based portfolios of stocks that would exclude gunmakers and retailers. The moves by BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager with more than $6 trillion under management, amount to the most detailed critical stance by a big financial firm after last month’s deadly high school shooting in Florida.” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-guns-blackrock/blackrock-poses-tough-questions-to-gunmakers-and-sellers-idUSKCN1GE2I3
