Sellers said they expect sales to continue to increase this year because of crime and it being an election year. Uncertainty over a new president and his policies can drive consumers to stock up on guns and ammunition. Sales generally increased in 2008 and 2009, after the election of President Obama.

I’ve settled on the firearms I like so it’s just getting ammo for them on a continual basis. Shop for groceries, pick up a box or two (Walmart) - this is when I’m home. In Australia both are very controlled.

Gun sales increase in 2012

Probably due to Freepers replacing all those guns they keep
losing in boating accidents.

I have also heard of the occasional zombie apocalypse attack or alien abduction. So, it's not just boating that's the culprit.

Guns, ammunition and good guitars are about the best investments you can make right now. Sorry if I offended the gold guys. Gold is nice too.

I don't know why they had to repeat themselves.

No. In the gun business, FREEDOM drives sales.

That is what he said. All have been sold, I imagine to gunshops and dealers nationally, and perhaps internationally. All of them. And my local dealer has guns flying out of his store. Cabelas still has people lined up three deep on weekends.

No. In the gun business, FREEDOM drives sales.

You are correct, if the concept includes the "loss of freedom".
We are only one liberal USSC vote away from losing our 2d Amendment.
Buy them while you can, what you do after they are declared illegal is up to you.
