Hundreds of thousands will call for stricter gun control measures at "March For Our Lives" rallies across the country on Saturday.

But in Montana's state Capitol, counterprotesters are organizing a "March For Our Guns."

"I love our Second Amendment rights," 18-year-old Joey Chester says. "I don't want to see those restricted for law-abiding citizens."

"March For Our Lives" was organized by students after the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. It follows a countrywide student walkout earlier this month.

When President Trump phoned to congratulate Russian President Putin on his re-election Wednesday, he made no mention of one of the latest irritants between Russia and the West — his administration's announcement that Russia successfully hacked the U.S. power grid.

The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued a joint alert last week: "Russian government cyber actors" have been targeting U.S. critical infrastructure sectors including energy, nuclear and commercial facilities, since at least March 2016.

Stephen Paddock, the man who rained bullets down on a crowd of concertgoers last October, killing 58 people, appears in newly released surveillance video to be an ordinary hotel guest and casino patron in the days leading to the massacre.

The former Playboy model who's suing for the right to talk about her alleged affair with President Trump is not waiting for a court or a judge to free her from a contract she says was contrived for the sole purpose of killing the story of their 10-month relationship.

In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper Thursday evening, Karen McDougal said Trump tried to pay her after the first time they had sexual relations.

"After we had been intimate, he tried to pay me, and I actually didn't know how to take that," she said, clasping her hands together.
