Gun capitalism and the epidemic of U.S. gun deaths

Gun capitalism refers to the business of selling guns and firearms as a means of profit-making. In the United States, the gun industry is a multi-billion dollar industry with a significant influence on the political system. However, this capitalistic approach to guns has led to an epidemic of gun deaths in the country. The U.S. has one of the highest rates of gun deaths in the developed world, with over 36,000 deaths per year. The majority of these deaths are due to gun violence, including homicides, suicides, and accidental shootings. Critics argue that the gun industry prioritizes profits over public safety, and that lax gun laws and easy access to firearms contribute to the high rate of gun deaths in the country. The debate around gun control and regulation remains a contentious issue in the U.S.
