5. Do guns come off the assembly line bound for the bad guys?
No, the supply chain is all "legit" until a unit takes bad turn and falls into the wrong hands.

In other words, the very prevalence of guns in American society is the problem.

Ultimately, every unit produced is accessible to anyone.

Thanks 2nd Amendment! And thank YOU Supreme Court for your willful misinterpretation thereof!
