On August 1, 1966, after stabbing his mother and his wife to death
the night before,
Charles Whitman,(above) a former Marine, took
rifles and other weapons to the observation deck atop the
Main
Building tower
 at the University of Texas at Austin, then opened
fire indiscriminately
on persons on the surrounding campus and
streets. Over the next 96
minutes he shot and killed 16 people
(including one unborn child)
and injured 31 others; a final victim
died in 2001 from the lingering effects of his wounds. The incident
ended when a policeman and a
civilian reached Whitman and shot
him dead. The attack was the deadliest
mass shooting by a lone
gunman in U.S. history
until it was surpassed 18 years later by the
San Ysidro McDonald’s massacre.

The New York "Lantern" newspaper published the first "Uncle Sam cartoon" on this day in 1852 and quickly became the symbol of the
United States. The editorial cartoon, “Raising the Wind; or, Both
Sides of the Story,” was drawn by Frank Henry Bellew (below). It
was used in criticizing U.S. policies on shipping.

The Dunblane school massacre took place at Dunblane Primary School (above) near Stirling, Stirlingshire, Scotland, on 13 March 1996, when Thomas Hamilton shot 16 children and one teacher dead before killing himself. It remains the deadliest mass shooting in British history
                                                                                                                                              

Public debate about the killings centered on gun control laws, including public petitions calling for a ban on private ownership of handguns and an official
inquiry, which produced the 1996
Cullen Reports. In response to this debate,
two new Firearms Acts were passed, which outlawed private ownership of
most handguns in
Great Britain.
