I've been enjoying Perry Mason while nursing the baby (can't read because he gets distracted and tries to eat the book). I caught the 80s reunion movies and enjoy the show a lot. One thing I've noticed that seems to be a dramatic change in our society is how commonly guns are portrayed. Every time you turn around someone has a gun in their purse, desk drawer, coat pocket, nightstand table, and/or glove compartment. This clip at 3 Ring Binder from the movie Sabrina also shows a casual (not necessarily unsafe) attitude toward guns.
Because of my upbringing in not-quite-rural, liberal, northern schools with kind-of hippy parents, I thought guns were little evil doohickeys with minds of their own for killing--likely to go off at any time and for any reason with little regard to the people near them. It's refreshing to see them treated as the tool they are.
