The Ugly Truth About the Gun Industry

Week after week there is a mass shooting in America or an unarmed person shot by the police. America is so driven by money, we have to wonder what are the economics of mass shooting or police shootings?

The US has a huge industry in the making of guns. The industry saw the opportunity to grow beyond hunting and advertised to grow the market.

Are mass shootings the product of gun advertising, toxic masculinity or something more sinister?

Professor Richard Wolff joins Thom Hartmann to discuss the economics of the gun industry.

Professor Wolff is Economist / Co-founder, Democracy At Work / Author of numerous books - his latest is The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself (now also available as an eBook)
