  1. May want to edit this post. “good stuff” in reference to the video could be quoted out of context, if anyone were intellectually dishonest or lazy.

  2. I was familiar with much of this argument. but did not realize that the ’68 gca was an outgrowth of this as well. Not that I was ever in favor of it (not that it made any difference; I was born well after it became “law”), but this casts it in a new light for me. My dad stopped carrying at roughly the same time the GCA passed, & I have long wondered if there was a connection…although in point of fact, truth be told, my family were slave owners…that bit was long gone by then, but still…

  3. I had just turned 13 years old when GCA68 was signed into law. I remember the debate on the news. I didn’t have a real strong opinion about it but it did concern me. I knew it would make it more difficult to buy a gun when I was older and that it wouldn’t be as anonymous as I would have liked. Of course all the murders of high level people were a concern too. But it was clear from the debate that the law wouldn’t make any difference in public safety. It was just some people in a far off place “doing something” to “make people feel better”.
