You raise a good point about those old days. In 1961, I was 16 years old, passed my driver's license test and had a 1949 Chevy that I drove to school and parked in the student lot because I had an after-school job. In October and November, my 12 gauge J.C. Higgins pump shotgun and hunting coat were in the trunk of my car. I worked on a farm after school and shot pheasants when I could.

Now days a swat team would surround my car and "toss me" if they thought a gun was in my car trunk on school property. Are we saver than in 1961?
