Wyldone,
As I believe you were not present during the troubled times in 1968, let me recommend that you consider that: America was waging a war in SE Asia that was becoming more and more unpopular with the left; drug use was soaring, along with some pretty liberal ideas like free love, a move away from personal responsibility, etc. The left was on a roll. That's when things really began an accelerated downward slide re: gun ownership/possession/use. Only recently has the moderate/conservative voice been rising against the loss of freedoms. Hope this adds some perspective.
