The American gun industry was first incubated by the government, and quickly it developed a commercial market, which then grew into public-private business dedicated to providing resources for common defense. Even before the Revolutionary War, the US had a significant shortage of guns. Even decades after it, the situation hasn’t changed much, and the nation was forced to rely heavily on the foreign markets.
