Fun Fact of the Day

Historical failure of gun/weapon control:

There was a general prohibition on carrying weapons within the established borders of ancient Rome. Although the Ides of March has passed, it is ironic to think on how Julius Caesar, then, was stabbed to death by the Roman senate. I guess the Roman senators had a "do as I say, and not as I do" mentality towards knife control.

Maybe if Caesar had fired a few rounds from his pistol in self defense, he could have scared off his assailants...

i think he was killed by a stilus (writing tool), not a knife
