Yes.  It's all about compensating by projecting power onto others.  Suburban pick-ups aren't really good for hauling and are never used for it anyway.  They're show ponies.  And AR-15 knock-offs are just expensive toys.  They're a long way from a good choice for either hunting or defense.

As to the first, Americans have been well brainwashed to believe their personal value is totally determined by the stuff they own.

As to the second, at any moment hordes of Negroes secretly trained by the Deep State will invade their suburb, raping and killing.  IOW, they fear what whites used to routinely do blacks will be done unto them.
