Heston supported gun control in 1968.
I would have supported gun control in 1968.
In 1968, the research into the effectiveness of gun control was so limited that it was possible to honestly believe that gun control might work.
That is no longer the case - that gun control doesn't reduce violent crime is no longer an open question. You can only support gun control through willful ignorance or intentional duplicity.
Heston has learned better, since 1968.
So have I.
So have most of us.

I understand why you posted what you did since on your home page you say you are a recovering liberal. But now, knowing what you know about gun controls ineffectiveness, would you support the repeal of all parts of the 1968 Gun Control Act?
