Gunpowder Tech the effects

Gunpowder affected the political climate in many countries due to the fact that their enemies can now use guns to kill them. This means that they must get guns and that wars become much more bloody. There was an economy that had to do with gunpowder and the production of things that use it like guns and cannons. Countries feel threatened by others who have more military capability than them. I think that the development of gunpowder technology was much different then military technologies developed in the past because of the much more destructive capability of gunpowder in conflicts.
