March For Our Lives and the
Giffords group told The Associated Press on Thursday that the forum focused on
gun violence is the first of its kind for presidential hopefuls.

It’ll be open to those who

Former Arizona congresswoman
Gabrielle Giffords formed her group after being shot in 2011. Survivors of a shooting
at a Parkland, Florida, high school formed March For Our Lives.

REPORT: Henderson tried to get Arizona Diamondbacks to relocate

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The city of Henderson reportedly tried to lure the Arizona Diamondbacks to southern Nevada and even had sketches of a proposed retractable-roof baseball stadium.
