USS Ponce -- seriously? I'm guessing it's named for Juan Ponce de Leon, and not a pimp or an effeminate man.

I think the US Navy is pretty far down the road with developing rail guns as well.
Ponce is a city in Puerto Rico. The USS Ponce is named after that city ... which itself was named after that de Leon guy.
