Just think - prior to 1967 there was NO Federal law regulating the sale of guns. Makes me wonder how we survived.
Agreed. One of the things I find so amusing about the 'proper ID' mantra-chanters is that they literally have no idea what they are talking about. I always ask them if they are or have ever been married, and if they are aware of the two Witnesses part of the ceremony. Long before 'everyone' had a D.L. (another topic for another day) it was common knowledge about the requirement for the two-witness necessity for 'ID'. We have forgotten so much and allowed so many freedoms to slip through our fingers in the intervening years (not I).
