Gun Dealers Thankful to the President for Huge Increase in Firearms Sales

An article on proclaims that the U.S. gun industry is thriving under President Obama’s watch.  In fact, sales are booming to the point that some manufacturers, like Ruger, are running out of their most popular models.

Four years ago the gun lobby predicted that Obama would be the most anti-gun president in American history but that, at least during his first term, wasn’t the case.  Obama has not promised to push for new gun control legislation and, even if he did, does not have the support in Congress or among voters. However, during last weeks debate, he did suggest renewing a U.S. ban on assault weapons and coming up with solutions that would reduce violence.

Chuck Cabaniss of Fox Firearms in Vassalboro told me sales for him are up around forty percent over the last year and notes that the number of women purchasing firearms and taking safety training courses has increased significantly.  My wife Marie Anne has recently voiced an interest in taking the course.

Regardless of whether the president is the driving force, gun sales are through the roof and show no signs of slowing down.  In fact, the number of federally licensed firearms dealers is increasing for the first time in almost 20 years.

If sales are any indicator, the second amendment is a very popular and very lucrative one.
