100 years ago, an adult American citizen could buy any kind of firearm made, including automatic machine guns; any type of narcotic made such as cocaine and morphine--without a doctor’s prescription; and there was no federal income tax.

The paper and video analyzes the erosion of the Bill of Rights from 1900 to the present. The video contains the PowerPoint presentation embedded within it.
