Happy Birthday Mr. President


"The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty." -- Avalon Project - Washington's Farewell Address 1796

Nice depiction of an MA-series assault rifle. Not clear what variant it's supposed to be, though.

My preference would have been something in the BR55 series.

In the 18th century the flintlock musket was the *assault weapon* of the day.

The 2nd ain't about huntin' or punchin' holes in paper, it's about blowin' the heads off people that try to harm you.
