“Gun ownership has traditionally been associated with the right wing in America but the election of Donald Trump has prompted some left-wingers to join gun clubs – and even start preparing for the collapse of society.”
See Why US liberals are now buying guns tooOwning firearms for defence does not make a lot of sense for most people but the election of Trump and his inspiration of deplorables has now inspired many others to choose to own firearms for defence. Those who were too lazy to vote against Trump are unwilling to hope he goes away next election or doesn’t burn down the house so they are hedging their bets by arming themselves.
In this situation the best outcome we can expect is a more violent society while the worst outcome is uncivil war. Trump likes to break things and he seems to have cracked the civil society wide open.
