I think we're talking at cross purposes. I already acknowledged that homophobia was pretty much universal. But with gun control, here we're talking about someone who was calling for gun control in 1968 and changed 180 degrees on the issue. And I think he was not unusual - people who wanted socialized medicine and increased funding for public education and separation of church and state and equal rights, etc. and changed to the opposite positions later. It may be as simple as what executrix suggests - that once people have more they want to protect their possessions. But I don't know - I think there's more to it, but I don't know what.
