We will never have meaningful gun control in the United States. Period.
Do you know why we will never have gun control? Are we stupid? No. Do we understand the problem? Yes.
We will never have meaningful gun control in the United States because there is money to be made selling guns.
Never miss a local story.
There is no money to be made blocking the sale of guns.
People who sell and manufacture guns have an economic interest in fighting meaningful gun control, and they have the money to do it.
Our political system is run by money. The NRA has money. People in favor of gun control have moral outrage, sorrow, grief, statistics, wisdom.
In politics, money wins. Money always wins.
We will never have gun control until we change how money influences politics. How long can our nation survive a political system controlled by money and only money?
