Archie Bunker's editorial on gun control ... from 1972.

Ever since Wayne LaPierre's press conference, this clip has been making the rounds on social media.

Why is gun control so important? It all starts when Archie gives an on-air citizen's rebuttal to a television editorial advocating restrictions on handguns. After enduring Mike's lecture in support of gun control, Archie goes to Kelcy's Bar... where he meets a pair of stickup artists who take his money.

The clip is from All in the Family's season three premiere, entitled "Archie and the Editorial," and first aired on September 16, 1972.
