Archie Bunker on Gun Control

Posted: 12/21/2012 8:56 pm

With everyone in our world talking about guns and America, I woke up this morning to find an All in the Family clip on YouTube that we produced over 30 years ago that has Archie Bunker on a local news channel doing an editorial on gun control. He finds himself suggesting that the best answer to avoid skyjacking is to "arm every passenger" and the audience erupts in laughter.

You can see the clip:

Can we possibly have any other reaction to Wayne LaPierre's similarly insane idea to provide armed guards for every school but to laugh? Or cry. I find myself doing a lot of both lately.
