Amy said, quote, “I’m not sure why this man chose my movie to end those two beautiful lives and injure nine others, but it was very personal for me. Enough is enough. These shootings have got to stop. I don’t know how else to say it.” She added, quote, “I am expecting a backlash and I’ll handle it the way I’ve handled it the last 10 years. I’ve had death threats and a lot of hate directed toward me.” Chuck said, quote, “Sensible legislation can happen. The Second Amendment says you have the right to bear arms, but it is not absolute.” Get more here.

Real Housewives Star Kim Richards Arrested for Shoplifting from Target
The Van Nuys Police Department confirmed that Kim Richards, 50, was suspected of walking out of the store with close to $600 worth of items in her cart. She was apprehended at about 4:30 p.m. in the afternoon, and placed under citizen’s arrest. Richards spent the night in jail and was released on a $5,000 bail. Her ex-husband, Monty Brinson, told Entertainment Tonight late Monday that he was surprised by the shoplifting claims. “I couldn’t imagine Kim stealing or shoplifting anything. She is a giver,” he told the site. “I am in complete shock. Guaranteed this must be some kind of mistake, and the facts will come out soon. She was arrested for shoplifting toys in a cart, but this was a clear misunderstanding. This was not alcohol or drug related.”This isn’t Richards’ first brush with the law. This past April, the former child actress was arrested on charges of public intoxication, battery, and resisting arrest, after causing a ruckus at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Get more here.
