24. That's deep. I think you hit it on the head.

Never quite thought about it like that before.
It's not like videogame systems or computers which constantly upgrade.
It's not like food which can be consumed & eaten.
It's not like clothes which go out of style or wear out over time.

Guns have more staying power as a product so to keep up a gun industry, they have to make more people to sell guns to and/or sell more guns to the people who already have them.

Businessmen are short-sighted by design.
They're clever but not necessarily wise.
When business goes too far society suffers.

I love it when people think like this!
When people get to the root causes of a problem.
When people figure out how the mechanism of a phenomenon works.
What you said makes SO much sense, sulphurdunn.
It's one reason I LOVE online forums. You just learn so much from other people's experiences.
