The Rifleman - The Anvil Chorus (1962)
Gun-banning Deputy Nils Swenson takes control of Northfork when the Marshall is out of town.
After Swenson stops a man from shooting off his revolver in celebration, he gets an idea. A very bad idea.
Deputy Swenson: "People carryin' around guns, causin' trouble. Take away the guns, no trouble."
Lucas: "Have you had any trouble since [Marshall] Micah left?
Swenson: "Well, no..."
Lucas: "Nils, this territory has a lot of growin' up to do. And until that's done, we can't take away a man's right to protect himself."
I would argue that should never happen. But our Nils goes full Cuomo nonetheless.
Swenson: "I'm removin' the cause o' trouble! Guns!" Give that man a tobacco-free Bloomberg cigar!

The Rifleman comes on all the time on my over the air free tv.
I had a thought. I wonder if John McCain and Lucas McCain are related? I mean, I see them on tv all the time and I think, “This can’t be real....”
Does anyone remember a series called “Lancer”?
It had one of the most pro-gun anti-gun control segments I ever saw on any TV show.
Some shyster comes into town and convinces everyone to give up their guns. Everyone is fooled even the good guys. There is one lone guy who doesn’t go along. I think his name was Johnny Lancer.
It turned out the shyster was a robber and wanted everyone disarmed for his own protection.
I suppose I have seen dozens, maybe even hundreds of shows which push for gun control. That is the only one I ever recall which showed the other side.
It took the new marshal about 19 minutes to understand his folly. Donks never will.
Wow. Thanks for posting this. I’m not used to other people posting my stuff on their own :-)
You did well my good man.
