Dragnet, season 3, episode 1: Friday and Gannon are on a TV debate show, and a member of the audience asks, "Why do I have to register my gun? The criminals don't." What do my favorite cops say? "Sir, why do you need a gun? In the time it takes you to get your gun, you can call us."

I'm shattered.

BTW: If you liked WKRP in Cinncinatti, you'll love the hippie character in this episode.

On reflection, "Dragnet" was a product of the times. Remember, it was about this same time that California Governor Ronald Reagan signed some gun control bills. Opinions related to guns are now much more positive.

So I take from his (or the writer's) response that the call it's self is the deterrent to the potential crime. Cool, if it ever happens to me again, I'll just say that I'm talking to the cops on my cell. Problem solved and crime averted. Hell if the futurists are correct and we'll all be hardwired into comms - there'll be no crime... It'll be Joe-topia!

Columbo,Dragnet,The Streets Of San Fran,Kojack = all ANTI - GUN as all get out.

AND the Mel Gibson from "Lethal Weapon" fame - anti gun too.

Funny how the hollyweirdo's make a living 'playing' with fake guns and yet dont want the citizen to own them.

After all they live behind locked gates with ARMED guards.
