French batteship/coastal guns
Ran across these photos while searching pictures of battleships. Here's the caption from the first photo:
Gorée Island / Île de Gorée, Dakar, Senegal: colonial era guns - WWII French coastal artillery - cannon barrels at Le Castel, a rocky plateau - 240 mm cannons, taken from a Danton class battleship - Schneider armored turret - photo by T.Trenchard
Obviously not from Danton herself, as her wreck was just located on the bottom of the Mediterranean last year.

...the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has always proved to be possible.
