The Greatest Gun Salesman In America: President Barack Obama

The Greatest Gun Salesman In America: President Barack Obama [INFOGRAPHIC]
Via: explains:

The perceived hostility towards gun owners by President Obama has actually helped the firearms industry tremendously. Since the 2008 election, more Americans than ever before are purchasing firearms & ammunition. This has meant massive increases in sales by firearm & ammunition makers …. informed us by email:

Starting in 2008 with the primary battle between then-Senators Clinton & Obama for the Democratic Party’s nomination, the firearm industry has experienced an unprecedented boom. Despite the lackluster economy, numbers such as the ones Linkbelow when visually illustrated … show an industry which continues to experience record (and under-reported!) growth, thanks primarily to “the Obama effect”:

  • Ruger’s firearm sales have gone from $117 million to $232 million, an increase of 98%
  • Winchester’s sales of ammunition have gone from $431.7 million to $572 million, an increase of 33%
  • Federal excise taxes collected on the sale of new firearms and ammunition has risen 48.3%
  • January 2012 was the 20th straight month of increases in NICS background checks compared to the same month in the previous year
  • Dec. 2011 saw over 1.41 million NICS background checks run, the most ever for a single month
  • The few states which regularly report concealed carry permit numbers have seen increases in active permit holders ranging from 46% to 161%

  • When will “the dunces” ever figure out that they have been massively infiltrated?

    You wanna know who “the dunces” are?

    Ok, I’ll tell you.

    The militias, the FBI, and the other keystone kops around the world.

    I wish like hell they would take each other out soon, so the remaining sane of us can get on with the difficulties of life in the cosmos.

    How crazy must it drive the gungrabbers like Schumer, Feinstein, Boxer, Bloomberg, Wasserman Schultz, Lowey, Lautenberg, Wexler, Sanders, Levin, Waxman, Harman, Bader Ginsburg, Breyer that this amount of tools of liberty are being delivered to us & that not one single gun was used in 911?
    (hey, they’re all of the same “tribe!!)

    Hmmm. I bought my first 2 guns when Bush Jr. was appointed President by the Supreme Court in 2000. That was such an obvious neocon coup that, for the first time in my life, I could see the necessity of arming myself to protect myself from the depredations of a tyrannical government. I find it amusing that the right thinks Obama wants to disarm the people and the left thinks the right-wing is a greater threat to our liberty. That makes it all the more obvious that there is no real 2-party system; there is simply the fascist-leaning federal government whose new world order agenda is advanced regardless of which party is in power, versus the people. I write as a person who is probably more of a social liberal than just about anybody you could meet, meaning I support equal protection under the law (read: gay marriage), the legalization of all drugs (end the prudish drug war), the end of fiat currency (end the Fed and stop devaluing the currency), and universal healthcare (single payer system). In short: the Golden Rule and the notion that a civilization can be judged by how well it takes care of the least powerful among us. I think it’s time to go target practice.

    It’s all good except for 1 little thing, unless Ron Paul becomes president, they’ll all be taken away!

  • this is basically an effective marketing campaign separating people from their $$$. how many in the yahoo nation are convinced “the blacks are taking over,” and using that as a rationale for building out the personal armory? obama’s not the threat to your freedoms — you are! by voting for ever-more-extreme yahoo politicians, the corporate-banking oligarchs have tightened their grip on the government, and sucking the country dry in the process. you can’t defend against hellfire missiles fired from a drone with the puny pea-shooters you’re wasting your money on.
