#USA #Podcast: The #Gun Show

source: https://www.wnyc.org/story/gun-show/
For nearly 200 years of our nation’s #history, the Second Amendment was an all-but-forgotten rule about the importance of militias. But in the 1960s and 70s, a #movement emerged — led by #BlackPanthers and a recently-repositioned #NRA — that insisted owning a #firearm was the right of each and every American. So began a constitutional debate that only the Supreme #Court could solve. That didn’t happen until 2008, when a #Washington, D.C. #security guard named Dick #Heller made a compelling case.

The world’s first national data #network was constructed in #France during the 1790s. It was a mechanical telegraph system, consisting of chains of towers, each of which had a system of movable wooden arms on top. Different configurations of these arms corresponded to letters, numbers and other characters. Operators in each tower would adjust the arms to match the configuration of an adjacent tower, observed through a telescope, causing sequences of characters to ripple along the line.
