“This territory has a lot of growing up to do,” rifleman Lucas McCain tells the stand-in sheriff [7:40]. “Until that’s done we can’t take away a man’s right to protect himself.” Until that’s done? You’d think The Rifleman would be a little more firm on gun rights. Anyway, gun control doesn’t work out in North Fork, New Mexico Territory. Just like it doesn’t work out in California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, etc. [h/t DG] As the Talking Heads would say, same as it ever was.
