In New York City on Sunday, the twosome stood on the steps of City Hall to hold a press conference — in which they encourage the public and social media users to take part in the conversation — so that they can hopefully force legislators to vote on the matter next year.

The blonde beauty took to Twitter and Instagram to post a picture from the event (above), and captioned the shot:

"Please join me and @SenSchumer in ending gun violence and tweet the hashtag #aimingforchange RT we can do this."

The comedian also used her profiles to share the various steps in the Senator's plan to reduce gun violence. Take a look at his proposal (below):

Pretty Soon You May Be Able To Inhale Your Coffee - Literally!

Filed under: DrugsDietsFamily

AeroShot coffee

Our society loves caffeine. And apparently, the quicker we can get it, the better.

What we first found in coffee and tea, has now been transplanted to a variety of beverages and even pills. Since swallowing takes up way too much of our time, a company has decided to take the next logical step and produce inhalable caffeine!

That's right. Asthma sufferers will no longer be the only people taking deep puffs from a metered-dose inhaler in public because AeroShot has hit the market.

The new product, which became available in New York and Massachusetts last month, contains B vitamins and 100 milligrams of caffeine powder per lipstick-sized container. Harvard biomedical engineering professor David Edwards, the inventor of this caffeine dispenser, says it is completely safe and since it is sold as a dietary supplement, the FDA didn't need to verify his claims.

New York Sen. Charles Schumer, however, wants to make sure this thing is safe for the world to inhale, especially kids, saying:

“I am worried about how a product like this impacts kids and teens, who are particularly vulnerable to overusing a product that allows one to take hit after hit after hit, in rapid succession.”

We'll be getting an official ruling soon because FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg has agreed to evaluate the AeroShot to determine if it's safe for consumption and if it can legally be sold as a dietary supplement.

Has any one out there tried this thing yet? Let us know if it works and if U think it is safe to use!

For the record, the company behind the AeroShot does not recommend anybody under 18 using it. That's probably a good idea because we can totally see 15-year-old boys daring their friends to do 30 hits of this stuff in a row.
