    They need to sell to criminals because they are repeat customers.

    You and I wouldn't need to dispose of a gun just because we decided to use it one day at target practice.

    Criminals, on the other hand, do. And so they need a constant supply of more guns. Bigger, more powerful guns, larger magazines, nasty ammo. The survivalist/militia nuts are a decent secondary market.

    That the gun manufacturers sell some of that stuff to the ubiquitous law abiding citizen is just gravy - and they use the fear of criminals they've armed with the big stuff as a selling point.

    The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
