Hitler was a nationalist, and I think if you draw a Venn diagram of gun owners and nationalist in the US you will see a big overlap, based on the fact that supporters of gun ownership also support defense of ‘the constitution’ over the lives of individuals.
Hooray for the longest lasting democracy in history. With high gun crime, high incarceration rates, high healthcare costs without corresponding improvement in health. Poor access to education, massive economic divides, crippling racism. What is the point of democracy if it doesn’t provide a better standard of life for its subjects?
