My gawd but I must be older than I thought,,,

In 1958? I went trick or treating as a soldier and was elated to be allowed to carry my uncle's real life GI 1911 as part of my costume.

In 1968 I attended my girlfriends senior prom,,,
It had a cowboy/cowgirl theme that year,,,
I was wearing my Colt Frontier Scout,,,
My girlfriend wore a Ruger (I think).

Fully 1/2 of the kids at that dance wore real guns,,,
The chaperones simply checked to ensure they weren't loaded.

No one shot anyone else the entire night.

I realize that times and attitudes have changed,,,
But sometimes I think we are as bad as the anti-gun folk.

~sheesh!~
