The shooting in Virginia that wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scaliseand the shooting in a San Francisco UPS facility that left four dead on the very same day, have generated—yet again—the standard set of responses in the wake of a mass shooting in the United States. The details of any such tragedy often emerge slowly, but a few points can be made. While deaths from mass shootings are a relatively small part of the overall homicidal violence in America, they are incredibly wrenching. The problem is worse in the U.
Although a good all-over tank, the M47 Patton was used only for a few years, before its replacement by the M48 in which was really a generation ahead. Declared obsolete inthe impression it left and service time nevertheless far outlasted the fifties under other colors.
The Soviet T was modified to face it and the M47 defeated many foreign-built models with success, even taking part in massive tank battles. Development history The M47 was not even conceived when the T42 was in development, to be the real replacement for the Pershing and its M46 upgrade and the whole fleet of M4 Shermans still in service in The T42 was intended as a real departure from previous designs, but soon development problems emerged.
At least six issues were detected and the production was still not in view. By that time, the Korean war erupted, and it was sought that there was no time to fix them. So a stopgap measure was taken.
A new prototype tank would be built, the M46E1, marrying the M46 hull modified and the T42 turret. Detroit tank Arsenal was put in charge of the final design, and the production was scheduled to start in Juneand the first tanks rolled off the factory line and entered service soon after.
Design The M46 hull, engine, transmission, drivetrain, were kept with few modifications. The hull had long storage bins which protruded on both sides and halfway across the engine deck.
The turret ring was enlarged and received a needle-nose design which better protected its front base. The hull received a front bow machine-gun, the usual MA4 Browning cal.
The M47 Patton was also the last US medium tank to feature a bow machine-gun. Despite the same overall Seven doubled roadwheels and three return rollers instead of five, plus the rear drive sprockets per side.
Shock absorbers were fitted to the front and two rear roadwheels pairs. The standard track links received rubber shoes. Longer mufflers on rear fenders were also fitted. The turret was also fitted with an M12 stereoscopic rangefinder which protruded on both sides.
This new system, which will become a standard, improved first-round hit probability but was somewhat difficult to use. The main armament was constituted by the upgraded 90 mm M36 replacing the M3A1 with 71 rounds distributed along the hull and turret, with 8 ready to use at hand for the loader.
Secondary armament comprised a coaxial cal. Production The production set up accused delays due to shipments of the new M12 rangefinder, and testings were prolongated due to emerging problems with a rushed conception.
Standardization came eventually in mayand the production started at Detroit Tank Arsenal, which delivered 5, tanks, quickly joined by American Locomotive Company Alco with 3, more, for a total of Variants M47M — The much improvement model started in the late s. Apparently, of these modified vehicles were produced for export and sold to Iran and Pakistan.
Later on in the s, Iran devised its own modernization program called the Sabalan.Mass shootings like the one at a GOP baseball game are more common in the US than in other industrialized nations.
And they are getting more frequent and more deadly. Asia Pacific Law Review; Japanese Gun Control, by David B.
Asia Pacific Law Review; Japanese Gun Control, by David B. Kople. 1. States with more gun control laws have lower levels of firearm homicide and firearm suicide. Using state data from , we found that states with more key firearm laws had fewer firearm homicides and fewer firearm suicides, after controlling for poverty, unemployment, education, race and non-firearm violence-related deaths. In politicizing mass murders, gun control advocates, such as President Obama, insist that more laws against firearms can enhance public safety. Over and over again, there are calls for common sense.
Kople. Gun control (or firearms regulation) is the set of laws or policies that regulate the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms by civilians.. Most countries have a restrictive firearm guiding policy, with only a few legislations being categorized as permissive.
Jurisdictions that regulate access to firearms typically restrict access to only certain categories. Gun control discussions crop up every time there is an attention-grabbing shooting in the US. On Wednesday, a year-old allegedly shot dozens of his former classmates at a Florida high school.
