During Obama’s Term, Gun Industry Has Grown 158 Percent

posted on April 14, 2016

Whenever an anti-gun president is elected, Americans become justifiably concerned for their rights and prepare accordingly. Barack Obama, with his pen, phone and desire to take away our guns, has had an enormous impact on the gun industry. 

In its 2016 Economic Impact Report, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) notes that the total economic impact of the firearms and ammunition industry in the United States increased from $19.1 billion in 2008 to $49.3 billion in 2015. During that same period, the number of full-time jobs related to the firearm industry rose from 166,000 to nearly 288,000. 

“Our industry is proud to be one of the truly bright spots in our economy as an unprecedented number of Americans have chosen to exercise their fundamental right to keep and bear arms and to safely enjoy the shooting sports,” said Stephen L. Sanetti, NSSF president and chief executive officer.
