Don't Push Me, I'm Close To The Edge....

Wall Street Bombing Aftermath, 1920
“At noon, a horse-drawn wagon passed by lunchtime crowds on Wall Street in New York City. The wagon then stopped across the street from the headquarters of the J.P. Morgan Inc. bank at 23 Wall Street, on the Financial District’s busiest corner. Inside, 100 pounds (45 kg) of dynamite with 500 pounds (230 kg) of heavy cast-iron sash weights exploded in a timer-set detonation, sending the slugs tearing through the air. The horse and wagon were vaporized. More than thirty people were killed immediately.
The bomb claimed mostly messengers, stenographers, clerks and brokers as its victims. It caused over $2 million in property damage and wrecked most of the interior spaces of the Morgan building.”

Wanna see gun control in the USA? Let's see black people and the poor arming themselves for a revolution.

Fortunately, the American people are too stupid to think for themselves (e.g., Sepp).
