1 – BREAKING: High school student arrested after being spotted with rifle
The Washington Examiner reports: A high school student spotted carrying a rifle outside Berkner High School in Richardson, Texas, was arrested Wednesday, according to local police.
The male juvenile, who has not been identified but is believed to be a student at the Dallas-area school, was located by officers in the school but did not have any weapons on him, the Richardson Police Department said in a press release. Police said officers were responding to a call from a nearby business that reported the male being seen walking towards the school with what appeared to be a rifle. Officers did find what appeared to be an “AK-47 style pistol and a replica AR-15 style Orbeez rifle” in a vehicle used by the suspect in a parking lot close by.
The suspect has been charged with the unlawful carrying of weapons in a weapon-free school zone, which is a felony offense. No further information is being released on the suspect due to his age, police said.
“The Richardson Police Department would like to remind the public of the importance to report suspicious activity, as we recognize the vigilant awareness and actions of the person who initially called 911 to alert law enforcement. The Richardson Police Department continues to work in partnership with Richardson ISD, Plano ISD, and our faith-based organizations to ensure the safety of our community, especially at our schools and places of worship,” the department said in the press release.

2 – ‘Second Amendment Is Not Absolute’: Biden Demands More Gun Control
The Daily Caller reports: President Joe Biden called for stricter gun control legislation during his Wednesday address, claiming the Second Amendment allows for limitations on firearm ownership.
The president made the remarks alongside Vice President Kamala Harris in the aftermath of the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas, which killed 19 children and 2 teachers. He announced his future visit to Texas alongside First Lady Jill Biden.
“As a nation, we must all be there for them. Everyone. And we must ask when in God’s name will we do what needs to be done to if not completely stop, fundamentally change the amount of the carnage that goes on in this country,” Biden said. “I’m sick and tired. I’m just sick and tired of what’s going on and continues to go on.”
He touted his push to pass “common sense gun reforms” while serving as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and as vice president, urging for these gun control laws to pass in order to have “a significant impact” on the number of tragedies occurring throughout the country.
“While they clearly will not prevent every tragedy, we know certain ones will have significant impact and have no negative impact on the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment is not absolute. When it was passed you couldn’t own a cannon, you couldn’t own certain kinds of weapons. There’s always been limitations. These actions we’ve taken before, they save lives and they can do it again. The idea that an 18-year-old can walk into a store and buy weapons of war designed and marketed to kill is I think just wrong. It just violates common sense.”
Joe Biden repeats the lie that you couldn’t own a cannon when the second amendment was passed.

3 – BREAKING: Jack Dorsey ‘will leave Twitter’s board of directors TODAY’: CEO set to step down 16 years after co-founding social media giant
The Daily Mail reports: Jack Dorsey will reportedly leave Twitter’s board of directors today – 16 years after co-founding the firm.
He is expected to stand down ahead of the $44billion takeover by Tesla magnate Elon Musk.
It comes after the entrepreneur was accused of stabbing the rest of the board in the back by helping the world’s richest man acquire Twitter. One of his former colleagues slammed him for ‘clear backstabbing’ when he and the billionaire ‘had a deal in hand to come to a standstill’.
Dorsey was set to leave Twitter on Wednesday, according to business news website The Street.

4 – BREAKING: Facebook’s first big ‘angel’ investor, billionaire Peter Thiel, is ‘stepping down from Meta’s board effective immediately’ to pursue Trump agenda
The Daily Mail reports: Facebook’s first big investor, billionaire Peter Thiel, is reportedly stepping down from Meta’s board effective immediately.
Thiel is leaving the board after 17 years to focus on backing Republican candidates JD Vance and Blake Masters for Senate in the upcoming midterm elections.
Thiel was scheduled to stand down today – the date of Meta’s annual shareholder meeting. He previously announced he would not stand for re-election.
Thiel, who co-founded Paypal in 1998, will turn his attention to candidates supporting the agenda of former President Donald Trump in the 2022 midterm elections. Last year, he donated $10 million each to two separate super PACs supporting Republican Senate candidates J.D. Vance in Ohio and Blake Masters in Arizona, according to Politico. Both of them have worked for Thiel in the past.
Thiel gave $1.5 million to pro-Trump organizations during the 2016 election. Last spring, he took Vance to meet Trump at the Mar-A-Lago resort, where the former-president-turned-Republican-kingmaker allegedly gave Vance a ‘good-natured ribbing.’
Thiel is worth $2.6 billion, according to Forbes. Thiel became a Facebook investor in 2004, when he provided $500,000 in capital at a $5 million valuation for a 10 percent stake in the company and a seat on its board of directors.
He is known as the most prominent conservative voice in Silicon Valley and a strong voice on Facebook’s board, which is still largely beholden to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Peter Thiel, a well-known tech investor and funder of Republican causes, has “officially stepped down” from his role, effective immediately, @Meta confirmed to the @dcexaminer on Wednesday.https://t.co/UjTbJtekff
