Obama’s Anti-Gun Initiatives Continue To Spur Sales

posted on February 10, 2016

Between 2007 and 2013, the number of firearms manufactured in the U.S. more than doubled—but with NICS checks in Pennsylvania, Alabama, Texas and Kansas up by over 50 percent, and with every state noting some increase, demand still occasionally outpaces supply. 

“I’ve got vendors who tell me they can’t order inventory. The wholesalers don’t have it,” gun-show promoter Dennis Pearson told the Wichita Eagle

What’s motivating the sharp increases in sales? Many believe that Obama’s increasingly bold anti-gun initiatives are responsible. Wichita Gun Club owner Jess Hancock said the Monday after Obama’s Dec. 6 address, “From that morning until when we closed our store, there were about 30,000 less items I could buy from my distributors because they sold out.” Pearson’s experience also supports this theory: “Prior to Obama being in office, the gun business was slow, it was hard to make a living. Since he was elected, it’s done nothing but make business better.”
