Actually much later than 1963. I took a Mini 14 and a Browning Hi power to high school for a teachers demonstration in 1978. The Principal smiled and waved as I went up the steps. How many felonies would that be today?

I love it when someone spells bologna right. gringrin

Quite a good bit of accuracy in the changing times based on dates . . . until the everpresent Internet embellishments/editorial comments get thrown in. winkwink

How about Christmas at school?? Its not politically correct to say Merry Christams like it was in 63' but instead its happy holidays so you don't offend anyone who might celebrate Kwanza or Hannukah. God forbid you offend someone or they might need therapy and prozac.
