Gun control has been a hot topic for a while, especially in the United States where mass shootings have been very rampant the past few years.
In case you’re wondering how worse the problem is, Gun Violence Archive compiled mass shooting details in 2015 and the outcome is quite alarming. The site came up with 14 pages of report showing that firearm-related attacks claimed a total of 367 lives and injured 1,317 individuals in the US alone.
It’s so scary that most families are probably hoping that the government will implement stricter regulations regarding gun ownership.
Strangely, however, the state of Texas just made changes in their law which legalizes it for people to carry their guns in public places starting January 1, 2016.
A new law in Texas is allowing gun owners to carry their weapons in public places.
In the past, laws required licensed gun owners to keep their guns hidden but now, things have drastically changed. People can now carry their gun in a belt or in a shoulder holster without being apprehended by police officers.
Needless to say, families and businesses are very skeptical about it.
What’s weirder about this law is that the authorities are now even reluctant about the idea of asking gun carriers if they have licenses or not. Harassment lawsuits could be filed against them if they did that.
Andy Michael, an Austin Police Department training commander admitted:
“We’re going to assume they’re a license holder, probably.”
To put it simply, this just means would-be criminals can go around anytime, anywhere without worrying about getting caught.
This could be wild wild west all over again. Whoever approved this law is a total piece of crap.

A Lake Fell Off a Cliff in Canada, Causing Massive Flooding!
Now even a lake can fall off a cliff, thanks to Global Warming!
Quick, think of things that can fall or dive from a cliff. A person maybe, an animal, a rock... a whole lake? Wait what, a lake?
Yes you read that right. Although a lake falling off a cliff seemed unheard of, that was what happened in the Northwest Territories of Canada when an unnamed lake "fell off" the arctic Fort McPherson hamlet, causing massive flooding in the area.
The lake has been preserved and held together by walls of ice and permafrost almost 30 meters thick. These permafrost barriers around Fort McPherson has been around for thousands of years, as remnants of the last Ice Age era when the Laurentide Ice Sheet was formed. However, ongoing and intensifying effects of global warming has slowly melted the permafrost around the area, and thus unleashing the waters of the lake....
Colombians Burn Ms. Universe Pia Wurtzbach And Host Steve Harvey’s Effigies on New Year’s Eve
Called año viejo, the act of burning effigies is being practiced across different countries in Latin America. It is believed that by burning these effigies at midnight, bad luck is being warded off for the entire year.
It's customary for Colombians to burn effigies on New Year's Eve since they believe the act wards off bad luck. However, what makes it different this year is the faces they put on the effigies: newly crowned Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach and the pageant's host Steve Harvey.
In a video posted on Facebook, effigies being burned on the streets had the faces of Ms. Wurtzbach and Steve Harvey. The video, which has since gone viral, showed the uploader smiling and cheering while the burning was underway. Loud cheers and lively music can also be heard in the background.
