Typical naivete on the macroeconomic effects of company acquisitions (and the decreasing overhead costs with magnitude purchasing power/production).
KEE is able to make a margin on the AXE because of their size, where a smaller-scale company would have to increase the market price to recoup their less efficient business model (sure, logistics have an effect, but sheer volume sales can make it worth the initial investment for KEE).
In fact, the other smaller companies I see making new guns (machine vapor?) are charging outrageous prices for their guns. But wait, isn't this increased competition? Shouldn't the customer base be getting better deals?
Unless this generation gets over the fact that the "number of companies= amount of competition = decreased prices" equation has been debunked and decoupled thoroughly since the days of Standard Oil, we will never have a voting base that supports effective policies.
