There is a lot of talk about why gun sales are at an all-time high. Michael Gaddy gives his take.
While we stumble along economically with bailouts, buyouts, and poor sales in almost all sectors, two products in America are seeing dramatic increases in sales: guns and ammo. People who never owned a gun before are buying; people are buying multiples of military style weapons and ammo is being bought by the case instead of by the box.
Many explain this away as folks simply worried that Obama will move to ban certain firearms, especially those referred to by the ignorant as “assault weapons,” I believe the motivation to buy firearms and ammunition goes much deeper.
