  •  More guns => more crime => more (10+ / 0-)

    incarcerations => more years served => more profit for "privatized" prisons => more money to NRA => more guns... etc.

    There's also more profit for the Gun Biz.

    NRA has been instrumental at generating an extra $50-billion in sales for "self defense" guns over the last 20 years.

    How does that compare with the money going to prisons ???

    Betcha they're close matches.

    •  Really. (4+ / 0-)

      Since there are already, what, 300 million guns in the US?  [Correct me if I'm wrong.]  I guess they're not like, say, cars or computers.  You can always use another gun!  Got to convince those gun owners they could use 1 more!  People w/o the gun "bug" won't buy them.  They are being used, but too invested to admit it to themselves!
