Armed Forces Day (1949)

pay tribute to men and women who serve in the United States’ Armed Forces
Today is Armed Forces Day! President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.
The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.

Gun Owners Protection Act (1986) became effective

Never forget
Fight for change

Today was the date the Hughes Amendment to the 1986 Gun Owners Protection Act became effective.
The amendment effectively prohibited new manufacture of machine guns by private citizen in the United States

This WILL be reversed, WHEN we demand it
