A gun-happy country?

Finally! The President of the United States has condescended to wear a mask after so many unfavorable comments were heard from his people. But why did he choose to wear a black one? Is that still a sign of protest, that he is wearing it under duress? But who are we to question the president of such a powerful country as the United States?
