Week 48

Weekly Sketch

The Gatling gun was made by an American inventor Dr Richard J.Gatling in 1861 but it was patented on November 4, 1862.

Although the first Gatling gun was required person to crank it; therefore it was not a true automatic weapon. That honour goes to The Maxim gun invented in 1883. never the less the Gatling gun represented a huge leap forward in humans ability to murder large groups of people easily. It seems like just stopping to talk would be less effort.
