Thompson Submachine Gun, Model of 1928A1

Bad guy caught lunch

Chi Trib’s Brachear makes amusing cause celebre of a pastoral warning. Tut.

Personal recollection, St. Catherine of Siena Church, early 1940s: Fr. G. from pulpit on Sunday warning vs. Dick Tracy — for depiction of violence, as of Tracy x-ing out side of shed with tommy-gun bullets, knowing bad guy was hiding inside. Counter-cultural advice then, counter-cultural now. In 60s counter-cultural was good, but now?
