Don't miss 7 News at Noon!

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

The Supreme Court has cleared two of its major cases today. Justices have thrown out much of Arizona's new immigration law, and they've decided that sentencing juveniles to life in prison without the possibility of parole would be "cruel and unusual" punishment. Still on deck - the President's health care law – we'll let you know when they intend to release a decision on that legislation. In the meantime, if you want to read up on what happened at the court this morning, you can click HERE.

Also today, why you should be worried about your online privacy. We're going to share some helpful info on protecting yourself on the web – including the five settings you need to change on your Facebook right now to ensure your privacy. We'll walk you through it and show you why these little things can make a big security difference.

Plus, as we get closer to the 4th of July, we're going to share some technology that could make your holiday brighter.

It's shaping up to be another scorcher of a day. Ben tells me our weather is being influenced by a hot dome of high pressure building in from our northwest, and that folks can expect temperatures near the 100 mark today, with no rain in sight. As far as the tropics are concerned, Debby remains a non-factor in our local forecast. Ben is still monitoring that situation and will have all the latest numbers at noon. You can also access weather info 24/7 HERE.

We'll see you at noon both on kplctv.com and on air. 

Have a great day, and be careful in all that heat!

    Congressman Clay Higgins weighs in on gun control debate

    Thursday, February 22 2018 7:20 PM EST2018-02-23 00:20:37 GMT

    Is now a time for congress to act on gun control? In the aftermath of last week's school shooting in Parkland, Florida, many have called for congress to put an emphasis on more gun control in America to prevent another mass shooting.  Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins was in Lake Charles Thursday to speak to the Republican Women of Southwest Louisiana, and KPLC questioned him about whether the United States needs more gun control. Higgins said it's absurd to suggest mass shoo...
