Mass Murder, Inc.

Gun manufacturers have made more than $1 billion from selling AR-15-style guns over the past decade, and for two companies those revenues have tripled over the past three years, according to a House investigation unveiled Wednesday.
We seem to be fumbling around for answers: Is it racism and radicalization, or untreated mental illness, or toxic video games, or too-easy access to guns? All of these may be parts of the problem, but equally none of them makes complete sense outside of the larger context: The gun industry’s modern marketing effort did not just arm these shooters; in a very real sense, it created them.

Asking the gun and ammo industry to take responsibility for all the gun violence is just as dumb as asking the automobile and fossil industry to take responsibility for all the traffic violence. This is America which is dominated by monopoly capital and shitlord oligarchs. Profit before people.
