I do wonder how exactly the right to own automatic rifles has to do with the day-to-day operation of the US. Because that’s kinda the point of the third rail, to provide electricity to trains. Social security is keeping people from falling to abject poverty, which is a lot more apt metaphor for the rail than US gun culture which leads the ocuntry to have the highest rates of gun-related deaths in the whole world.
