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.
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." (James Madison, The Federalist Papers #46 at 243-244)
That rifle hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or labourer's cottage is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there. George Orwell
