Guns and capitalism

Guns and capitalism The NRA exists to increase the profits of America’s gun makers. It does so by constantly stimulating the market for guns, which, as in the case of so many other consumer goods, is dominated by the behavior of the tiny percentage of Americans who buy an enormous percentage of the item in question. While around 30% of Americans own at least one gun, the much more salient statistic, from the perspective of gun manufacturers, is that one tenth of that cohort — made up of 3% of Americans — collectively own half…

Hundreds of Teachers Sign Up for CCW Class After Parkland Massacre

Hundreds of Teachers Sign Up for CCW Class After Parkland Massacre In the wake of every mass shooting, we ask ourselves the same question: how do we prevent this from happening again? For many, the go-to answer is to enact stricter gun laws, specifically a ban on the type of weapon used. But there’s another idea that seems to be gaining traction this time around, and it doesn’t involve taking away your guns. In fact, it suggests the opposite: arm teachers and other school staff members. Now, it’s important to note that those in favor of…

Heck, these arguments have ended up in LGM comment threads on occasion. Anyway, this entire long Johnson essay is great. I am going to assign…
