Maybe it is because you live in one of them?
All right, I admit it. I fell into the circle jerk mentality, you defame me, I defame you and around and around it goes.
Manneken Pis (Dutch: [ˌmɑnəkə(m) ˈpɪs] (About this soundlisten); Dutch for '"Little Pissing Man"') is a landmark 61 cm (24 in) bronze fountain sculpture of a puer mingens in central Brussels (Belgium), depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin. It was designed by Jérôme Duquesnoy the Elder (1570–1641), and put in place in 1618 or 1619. The current statue is a replica which dates from 1965. The original is kept in the Brussels City Museum. Manneken Pis is the best-known symbol of the people of Brussels. It also embodies their sense of humour (called zwanze in Brussels' dialect) and their independence of mind.

2aguy, apart from your foul language you made your point. Now let us get back to the OP
Way back in the day of the cowboy’s gun control was tougher than it is today
Laws regulating ownership and carry of firearms, apart from the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment, were passed at a local level rather than by Congress. “Gun control laws were adopted pretty quickly in these places,” says Winkler. “Most were adopted by municipal governments exercising self-control and self-determination.” Carrying any kind of weapon, guns or knives, was not allowed other than outside town borders and inside the home. When visitors left their weapons with a law officer upon entering town, they'd receive a token, like a coat check, which they'd exchange for their guns when leaving town.
As you have been shown, you moron.......there was very little gun control back in those days..........you were shown the new gun control laws that did not exist even going into the 1960s......
You were also shown that criminals ignored the few laws that were in place.....as Tombstone demonstrates with the Cowboy's, Doc Holiday and the death and maiming of the Earps...
