One of the rationalisations the US gun lobby makes for their heavily armed society is ;’just in case they end up with an evil regime’.
Spoiler; that ship already sailed, the USA is already run by gangsters who profit from death and pestilence.
Corporate domination of the government is obvious and led by the largest industries, therefore the largest amounts of money, on the planet. One gang optimises profits for their shareholders from people being sick and another gang make their profits from people being dead, preferably from one of their products. They also make a bundle out of creating that heavily armed society, an enterprise that comes with a built-in, no effort, marketing gimmick:
More massacres = more fear = more gun sales.
These ‘equal opportunity’ merchants of death don’t discriminate between foreigners or Americans, every death is just more profits for their shareholders.
It’s probably time to decouple our carriage from the USA’s warmongering train, it’s about to go over a cliff.
