The history of slot machines
A coin-operated gambling machine was first invented in 1895 by San Francisco inventor Charles Fey. Ten years later, he invented the first “true slot machine.” It had three reels and automatically paid winners. In 1915, the machines were camouflaged to avoid anti-gambling laws and dispensed things like cigarettes, candy and gum every time the handle was pulled. The gum was decorated with illustrations of the flavors. The fruit and bar symbols on machines today evolved from these illustrations.

The Right Take: Red Flag Laws
At issue is a red flag law, which allows a court to order someone to turn over their firearms if they pose a threat to themselves or others. Narrowly tailored, these laws can be effective. But getting the details wrong can turn a good idea into a bad law. It’s a tough balancing act to design a law that allows the government to seize someone’s weapons while respecting an individual’s right to due process.
