You can bet Steve got his permit. I wonder if he was a democrat.
McQueen was a Republican and held some conservative views.
"We might want to call him a libertarian. He did seem to lean right during the time in U.S. history when you were either a “hippie” or a “square.” He endorsed Republican Richard Nixon for president in 1968, even though he somehow made it onto Nixon’s list of enemies. Plus–and this might negate any claims that he was a libertarian–he supported the war in Vietnam and refused to participate in the Civil Rights march on Washington.
In today’s political climate, he would certainly lean right on the contentious gun control issue. After it was made public in 1969 that McQueen was on the top of serial killer Charles Manson’s “to kill” list, McQueen carried a concealed weapon with him wherever he went."
