All in the Family: “Archie and the Editorial”
This episode is ranked by getTV as one of the 10 most unforgettable. Just a few weeks before the 1972 presidential election, All in the Family began its third season with a pointed episode about gun control. It begins with Mike and Archie debating the merits of the Second Amendment, which conservative Archie defends (and liberal Mike of course, opposes). It ends with Archie delivering a now-famous television editorial in support of gun rights — and getting robbed soon after in Kelcy’s Bar. Sorrell Booke (Boss Hogg on The Dukes of Hazzard) guest-stars.
