The Times They Are A-Changin’

Fox News is reporting Illinois Gov. Pritzker has signed a law banning firearms advertising that “officials” believe appeals to children. The law, which also applies to ads aimed at militants or others who might later use the weapons illegally, allows for lawsuits against firearms manufacturers or distributors.

I remember seeing this ad in Boy’s Life back in the early ’60s.Once upon a time, boys were trusted with firearms. My father protected his family’s livestock from feral dogs with a .30/06 while he was in his teens. I dispatched varmints with a .22.

BTW, I still have my Nylon 66.It’s provided decades of plinking pleasure and put small game on my dinner table.
