Maximizing Industry Sales To Criminals

 It's easy to see why the NRA wants pro-criminal laws. Despite its bombast about liberty and patriotism, it is just the gun manufacturers trade group trying to sell product. Illegal sales are still sales--the criminal market represents 25 percent of all gun sales each year and the NRA does everything it can to protect this shadow market. It then doubles and triples legal sales by yelling "the criminals have guns"-- in a mendacious business plan that plays the two sides against each other.
