saulgoldie BS: Don't get much sicker than this (20) RE: BS: Don't get much sicker than this 19 May 16


OP aside--thread drift alert--I heard a discussion on, of course, NPR about a book called: The Gunning of America: Business and the Making of American Gun Culture.

Fascinating, really, in that the whole discussion of guns and gun policy was not driven by deeply held political or philosophical views, but was totally driven by cold hard business decisions. Puts the lie to our entire discussions of gun culture, the 2nd amendment, and all that.

I doubt if this new information will change anything, though. We like our truisms pretty much, whether or not they are true.
