8. Mobilize, politicize religious conservatives/fundamentalists
9. Imperialistic foreign policy framed as a righteous war against the forces of evil

The hideous garbage ideology that wants all Americans to carry guns around and which advocates the legality of murdering innocent people in order to increase profits for gun manufacturers is one of the biggest disasters for the United States in about 50 years. More murders, more court cases, less money for cops who will have more work. More people feeling and being less safe. A disaster for everyone except the Fox News fascists.
