A Brief Visual History of Weapons
"From the axe, which originated in 1,000,000 B.C., to today's killer drones, mankind's use of weapons has been varied and incredibly inventive. Weapons have changed history and aided in the rise and fall of civilizations.
For example, gunpowder, a Chinese invention, led to the development of cannons and guns
— revolutionizing warfare in the Middle Ages and beyond."

DEATH PENALTY

Nebraska abolishes death penalty after veto-override - 28 May 2015
"Nebraska joins 18 other states and the federal district of Washington, DC, in banning capital punishment,
and is the first traditionally conservative state in four decades to do so...

North Dakota, another traditionally conservative state, abolished the death penalty in 1973.
The most recent state to eliminate the death penalty is Maryland, which ended capital punishment in 2013."
