10. Corporate interests and funding corrupts almost without fail.

Many public organizations (including charities and universities) with original good intentions become corrupt after allowing massive corporate sponsorships. They become shills for the companies, drift away from their original missions, and leaders are often bribed.

Gun and ammo manufacturers and owners are simply another sector the GOP has co-opted to gain votes and campaign contributions, along with many of our churches and private schools.

The reason the GOP went after the gun and church sectors is because they can use fear of losing something (guns, religious rights, etc.) to capture votes and funding from organized groups.
