The American love affair with guns
The NRA is holding its annual convention just days after the Uvalde school shooting. The group exists to protect gun industry profits and the state’s monopoly on violence, and keep guns in the hands of right-wingers.
Last week, the National Rifle Association successfully struck down an assault weapons ban in Boulder, Colorado. Five days later, Boulder was the scene of a mass shooting — reportedly with the same kind of weapon the city tried and failed to ban.
