To all Virginia Patriots and Virginia democrats!
Quick history refresher:
The "Shot heard 'round the world", and the official start of the American revolution occurred April 19, 1775 between American colonists and a contingent of British troops. But why were the British troops marching on Concord Massachusetts?
British General Thomas Gage hoped to prevent, or forestall, the violence he suspected was coming. He knew that talk amongst the colonists has turned violent and that they were stockpiling black powered and arms. He ordered a march on Concord with instructions to seize and/or destroy privately owned arms & powder. On April 18, 1775 1500 British troops started an overnight march. The British arrived in Lexington to be greeted by Captain John Parker's militia. The infamous shot rang out and the British fired, killing 7. The British troops moved on to Concord leaving the scattered militia behind. By the time the British arrived at Concord's North Bridge, the word was out about the British actions and around 400 local militia had gathered. The militia routed the British out of the area back towards Boston. By the time the British troops made it back to Boston thousands of colonials had joined the fight to harass the British retreat.
Results: 1500 British troops attempted to disarm a local community. Almost 4000 colonials joined the fight to protect and defend each other. 93 total colonial casualties to 300 British casualties.
1775 Weapons refresher:
The standard issue long arm of the British army was the British Land Pattern Musket, or more commonly referred to as the "The Brown Bess". The Bess was a .75 caliber, smooth bore with an effective range of about 100 yards. The intended purpose of this weapon was for open field combat against lines of troops over short distances in a battle of attrition.
The American colonists used what was commonly referred to as the Pennsylvania/Kentucky rifle. Due to variances in gun smiths, caliber ranged from .25 to .62. These were the same rifles that they used for hunting that then became military weapons. Unlike the British, the Colonist used the more accurate rifle technology to extend the range to 200 yards.
In short, the colonists were better equipped with more modern weapons then the British military. The British forces, rightly, feared the disparity in arms and attempted to disarm the population. So, in the context of the second amendment; the framers fought a war with better, privately owned, weapons than the military that they were fighting.
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

If we anons were alive back then, you know where we would have been. You just know it. April 19, 1775
On April 19, 1775, British and American soldiers exchanged fire in the Massachusetts towns of Lexington and Concord. On the night of April 18, the royal governor of Massachusetts, General Thomas Gage, commanded by King George III to suppress the rebellious Americans, had ordered 700 British soldiers, under Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith and Marine Major John Pitcairn, to seize the colonists' military stores in Concord, some 20 miles west of Boston.
A system of signals and word-of-mouth communication set up by the colonists was effective in forewarning American volunteer militia men of the approach of the British troops. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "Paul Revere's Ride" tells how a lantern was displayed in the steeple of Christ Church on the night of April 18, 1775, as a signal to Paul Revere and others.
At Lexington Green, the British were met by approximately seventy American Minute Men led by John Parker. At the North Bridge in Concord, the British were confronted again, this time by 300 to 400 armed colonists, and were forced to march back to Boston with the Americans firing on them all the way. By the end of the day, the colonists were singing "Yankee Doodle" and the American Revolution had begun.

Facing the threat of rebellion, British General Thomas Gage hoped to prevent violence by ordering the seizure of weapons and powder being stored in Concord, Massachusetts, twenty miles northwest of Boston. Departing Boston late in the evening on April 18, 1775, the King's troops marched into the small town of Lexington at around 5:00 AM. the next morning. Waiting to greet them was a small company of militia commanded by Captain John Parker.
A shot rang out - historians still debate who pulled the trigger. Nervous British soldiers then fired a volley, killing seven militiamen and mortally wounding another. Parker's men fled, while the British soldiers moved on towards Concord, arriving around 8:00 AM.
By the time the British arrived at the North Bridge, a force of almost 400 colonial militiamen from Concord and the surrounding area had gathered on the high ground across the river. The Minute Men formed up and advanced on the British, who responded by retreating back across the bridge and taking up a defensive position. When the British troops opened fire, the Minute Men responded with a volley of their own, killing three British soldiers and wounding nine others. The British troops fell back to the town.
The British, realizing their vulnerability, decided to return to Boston. Their retreat turned into a rout, however, as thousands of militiamen attacked the British column from all sides. Shooting from behind trees, rocks, and buildings, the Patriots inflicted heavy casualties on the retreating Redcoats.
By the time the fighting stopped, the British had lost 73 men killed and many more wounded, compared to the Patriots' loss of 49 men killed.

US Air Force's new trainer jet could become its next light-attack or aggressor aircraft

ORLANDO, Fla. - The U.S. Air Force's new T-X jets could be more than just trainers, with aggressor or light-attack missions now on the table for the Boeing-made plane, the head of Air Combat Command said Thursday.
Although buying new T-X trainers to replace the more than 50-year-old T-38 fleet still remains a top priority for that program, the service is beginning to explore whether the T-X could be procured for other uses, Gen. Mike Holmes said at the Air Force Association's Air Warfare Symposium.
"You could imagine a version of the airframe that could be equipped as a light fighter. You can imagine a version that is equipped as an adversary air-training platform," he told reporters during a roundtable.
"At the informal level, I have some guys that work for me that are thinking through what the requirement might be for those different versions. When or if that transitions and becomes something more formal will depend on a lot of things," he said, adding that one of those variables is the budget.
So what T-X variants could the Air Force pursue?
A light-attack T-X
The Air Force still hasn't made clear its path forward on the light-attack experiment, but leaders have said they want to broaden the effort to include aircraft beyond the turboprop planes, which were the focus of the first experiments. The T-X, or a low-cost jet like it, could have a role, said Holmes, who declined to get into specifics until the fiscal 2020 budget is released with more details.

Don't know if this is old news or not.

Connecticut police announce arrest tied to spate of synthetic pot overdoses
Connecticut authorities revealed Friday that a man was arrested in relation to the investigation of several dozen synthetic pot overdoses that occurred in the state this week.
John Parker, 53, was taken into custody Wednesday and was discovered with more than 30 bags of K2, the synthetic marijuana linked to more than 100 overdoses, police said.
Parker was hit with drug-related charges after authorities found him with the K2, Police Chief Anthony Campbell said.
The area around the New Haven Green near Yale was where many of the overdoses occurred, starting on Wednesday. Multiple people who were affected by the drug identified Parker as someone who'd been dealing it in the area, Campbell said.

>much potential there
re: Titanic – from post on "Sir" John Parker, chairman of Carnival Cruise Lines in US/UK, National Grid in UK, on board of Bank of England, and recently sold RMC Concrete Group to CEMEX.
> a long way from his first high-profile job when, after qualifying as a naval architect and working his way up to chief executive at the Austin & Pickersgill shipyard, he was parachuted back to his roots at Harland & Wolff, builder of the Titanic, to oversee its privatisation
Harland & Wolff is most famous for having built all of the ships intended for the White Star Line including the ill-fated RMS Titanic.
Other well known ships built by Harland & Wolff include Titanic's sister ships RMS Olympic and RMS Britannic,
the Royal Navy's HMS Belfast, Royal Mail Line's Andes, Shaw Savill's Southern Cross, Union-Castle's RMS Pendennis Castle, and P&O's Canberra.
Harland & Wolff was formed in 1861 by Edward James Harland (1831-95) and Hamburg-born Gustav Wilhelm Wolff (1834-1913, in the UK from age 14).
When Harland died in 1895, William James Pirrie became the chairman of the company until his death in 1924. Thomas Andrews also became the general manager and head of the draughting department in 1907.
It was in this period that the company built Olympic and her sister ships Titanic and Britannic between 1909 and 1914,
commissioning Sir William Arrol & Co. to construct a massive twin gantry and slipway structure for the project.

Over in the Tucson trafficking thread, anon found this Brit, "SIR" John Parker. Deep connections, including sale of a giant British concrete company to CEMEX.
Chairman of Carnival Cruise Lines,
ex-non-exec-chairman of the Bank of fucking England,
chairman of National Grid (THE British electric & nat gas company – think Qatar),
pallet & paper companies (think timber & lumber),
connections with Dubai World, etc. etc. etc.
>>1628455 Tuscon thread
>Not exec, director. Think tippy top.
>Holy Crown Royal, anon. You just hit a big kahuna.
Putting sauce over in general for now, until we can find a direct connection to the ring.
Being an influence in the boardroom is a way of life for the National Grid chairman.
"I have been on 12 quoted company boards, eight of which I have chaired, over the past 25 years," says National Grid chairman Sir John in his Northern Irish brogue, passing me a sheet listing them all.
The list includes three dual-listed companies - cruise ship operator Carnival (London and New York), pallets giant Brambles (London and Sydney) and paper group Mondi (London and Johannesburg).
<pallets & paper are made from "timber & lumber" >>1622702
There are also two major demergers - Lattice Group from BG Group and P&O Princess from P&O - as well as two sales to foreign companies (P&O to DP World of Dubai and concrete group RMC to Mexico's Cemex) - and two major mergers (Lattice with National Grid and P&O Princess with Carnival).
As well as chairing National Grid, his current portfolio of non-exec jobs includes companies in the Middle East (DP World), continental Europe (aircraft-maker EADS Airbus), South Africa (Mondi) and the US, where Carnival is also the only company to be a member of both the FTSE 100 and America's benchmark S&P 500 index.
Somehow Sir John, knighted in 2001 for services to defence and shipbuilding, also finds time to be a senior non-executive director of the Court of the Bank of England, a member of the Prime Minister's Business Council for Britain and Chancellor of Southampton University. No wonder he carried off the top award at the Non-Executive Director Awards set up by investment bank KBC Peel Hunt earlier this month.
Sir John believes there are "three pillars" around which to run a company
Even now, he remains true to his shipping roots as governor of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and a member of the General Committee of Lloyds Register of Shipping.
Pouring tea in his National Grid office overlooking Trafalgar Square where he splits his time with his other major chairmanship of mining giant Anglo American,
His global view of corporate life is a long way from his first high-profile job when, after qualifying as a naval architect and working his way up to chief executive at the Austin & Pickersgill shipyard, he was parachuted back to his roots at Harland & Wolff, builder of the Titanic, to oversee its privatisation
- he was chairman of P&O ports when it was sold to Dubai World and of cement group RMC, which was bought by Mexico's Cemex -
