Of course he was. I was born in 1944 and grew up in the 50s. My mother read Dr. Spock and followed his advice almost religiously. My grandfather and both of my uncles who lived on the same street all had firearms in their houses, none of the firearms were locked up, we kids (my brother and I and all my cousins) all knew where the guns were ... and we never touched them without an invitation from one of the adults.

Don't blame it on Dr. Spock.
