While an assault weapons ban will likely go before Congress in 2013, and while many are calling for stricter gun control laws in response to the Connecticut shooting, residents in at least two states are taking a different tact:
They’re getting locked and loaded.

A couple new Breaking Dawn Part 2 photos have hit the Internet, with one being especially apt.
It depicts Edward Cullen, seemingly alone, confused, lost in his thoughts. If Robert Pattinson had to reshoot this scene right now, we have a feeling he’d easily be able to summon those emotions.
Take a look below at Edward soliciting the help of the Denali coven to fight against the Volturi.
In the other just-released image, Edward and Bella are joined by a few Amazon friends, as trouble is clearly afoot and forces are gathering on both sides:

Kate Gosselin’s missing the bygone era when she was a reality TV star traveling the world with her brood, according to a recent Twitter missive. So much so, she even watches old episodes of the old days … we can’t decide if that’s sweetly nostalgic or just sad.
The mother of eight Tweeted:
“Wow. We all agreed: we miss our show & the adventures and huge opportunities to help and entertain others! Why am I watching and crying??!”
“We are watching the St Jude’s episode… I am crying… Happy and sad tears… Old episodes of Jon & Kate +8 warms our hearts…” Kate later added.
Royal Caribbean’s Kate Gosselin-hosted celebrity cruise has been canceled because of poor turnout and low ticket sales, according to reports.
The mother of eight was supposed to set sail from August 12-19 at a rate of $1,900-$3,175 per ticket. Astonishingly, there weren’t many takers.
All cruise-goers have been fully refunded for the nixed event.
Said a spokesman for the company of the Kate Gosselin cruise:
“Yes, that event has been canceled. We just didn’t get the turnout that we desired and mutually we agreed that if we didn’t get it, we would cancel.”

Heiress and fashion icon Daphne Guinness is raising eyebrows this week as the subject of a profile in this week’s issue of The New Yorker magazine.
In it, Daph displayed her affinity for style over comfort.
Put more succinctly, she’ll starve herself to look good.

“To incarnate Ziggy Stardust, she let a stylist place an enormous metallic collar around her neck; the stylist apologized for any discomfort.
