There’s a lot to unpack in ABC News’ tweet about gun sales. First, why was there a House investigation into gun manufacturers’ revenues? Second, what the hell does this mean: “AR-15 style guns sold as a sign of manhood as shootings rise.” Do women not buy AR-15s? And third: What’s wrong with gun manufacturers enjoying increased revenues along with increased sales? If so many people want AR-15s banned, why have sales gone through the roof over the past three years?
Gun manufacturers have made more than $1 billion from selling AR-15-style guns over the past decade, and for two companies those revenues have tripled over the past three years, according to a House investigation. https://t.co/ynAf4sqfxu
