Well, this is embarrassing.

We don't seem to have an article of the day for this date. Maybe you could help us out and make or suggest one.
(It's fun! trust us.)


On this day

What else happened today
  • 1960 — Theodore Maiman operates the first optical laser, at Hughes Research Laboratories in Malibu, California. You can thank him for that nifty sight on your sopmod.
  • 1994 — Industrialist, philanthropist, and third generation gun innovator Valmore Allen Browning (John M. Browning's son) passed away in Ogden, Utah.
  • 2006 — Auditor General Sheila Fraser reports that the former Liberal government of Canada twice misinformed Parliament about tens of millions of dollars of overspending at the Canada Firearms Centre.
  • 2011 — The ongoing amnesty for the Canadian gun registry was due to expire. Again. It didn't.
