Like many around the world, I am always astounded by the astonishing cultural paranoia that fuels Americans fetish for guns.
Can anyone take the NRA seriously by wanting to arm teachers? Their solution is MORE GUNS? If there was a walking advert for why mothers shouldn't drink during pregnancy, it's the bloody NRA.
Add fear of one another from a if-it-bleeds-it-leads crime porn mass media with the numbness and desensitization of ultra violent one person video games with an unresolved historical angst from slavery that causes a violent neurosis that demands weapons with a willfully ignorant misreading of the Constitutional rights of owning firearms with a domestic arms industry that has made about $3.5billion in annual domestic sales since the mid 1990's and you get this bizarre societal mutation for firearms that is driven by a deep seated and monetized cultural brain injury.
Americans are fucking crazy for guns. There are 311million Americans, there are 300million guns and every time there is a hint of gun regulation, the crazy bastards rush out and buy more of them.
Guns sales soar in America after every mass shooting because the vested corporate interests that see $3.5billion per year in new gun sales alone will always tweak the emotional raw nerves of Americans for maximum returns.
The profits from the domestic arm of the Military Industrial Complex have trapped America in an unending zombie nightmare they will never be allowed to wake from.
Freedom to own an assault rifle doesn't seem to be much of a freedom.
