Your View: U.S. is the largest supplier of military hardware

A few things to remember moving forward on the gun control debate.

The United States is the largest supplier of military hardware in the history of the world. This hardware is responsible for killing more people than any other supplier.

In many instances, such as the Iran/Iraq War in the 1980s, the United States has supplied arms to both sides so they could kill each other faster.

Now, this same government is attempting to tell me I cannot buy an assault-type weapon.

It’s like Al Capone saying no more machine guns.
