Never Rational American Gothic

Never Rational American Gothic
There is a sickness in the USA.
It’s a kind of lust.
An addiction.
A fetish.
It’s an irrational attraction to toys that end life. It doesn’t matter how many children shoot their siblings, how many people shoot themselves, on accident or on purpose, or how many disturbed individuals shoot swaths of others at once; the thirst for possession of murdersticks is seemingly unquenchable.

It doesn’t matter that you are statistically more likely to commit suicide than than to successfully defend your home from an invader. It doesn’t matter that accidents in the home are more prevalent than incidents of protection.
Nothing sways the worship.
