Economic Success Story

  • The gun industry has boomed over the past eight years resulting in a massive increase in gun-related jobs throughout the country.

    The number of full-time jobs in the firearms industry increased from about 166,000 in 2008 to nearly 288,000, according to a new report from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, or NSSF. That represents a 73 percent increase.

    In 2015 alone, the gun industry went from 263,223 jobs to 287,986, an increase of nearly 25,000 jobs.

    The NSSF estimates that the gun industry currently has a total economic impact of nearly $50 billion. That’s up 158 percent from $19.1 billion in 2008. Wages in the industry rose 126 percent over the same time period. The average industry worker now receives $50,180 between wages and benefits.

    The gun industry has also generated record amounts of tax revenue for both the federal government and state governments in the past eight years. In 2015, the federal government collected $3.7 billion in tax revenue, an increase of 144 percent since 2008. State governments saw nearly double the tax revenue over the same period. Excise taxes are also up 92 percent.
The best gun salesman ever. If only he could expand this to the entire economy.

Elect Hillary and the "success story" will come to a screeching halt. If there is one thing Hillary hates it is a gun in private hands.

If Hillary wins, gun sales will skyrocket the months prior to her taking office.

I wonder if she hates it more than having Bill's gun in private hands?

Keep buying.

When Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren are elected in November things will get worse.
(Don't worry, the GOP establishment will still have their cushy jobs)
A gun grabber will be seated on the US Supreme Court.
Heller and McDonald decisions will be gutted.
Black Lives and Muslim Lives will be the only ones that Matter.
(The DOJ will see to that)
Blue Lives won't be worth shit.

I'd imagine the vast majority of those new gun purchases were made by people that support their local police. A good thing for all law enforcement officers to remember.
When a tyrannical government revokes the 2nd Amendment and demands law enforcement to confiscate all those firearms, it will be time to remember the constitution you swore an oath to uphold and those that support you.
The select few that think they know what is best for all of us, are the same ones that have created the situation you are forced to deal with daily.
Don't let "them" think for you.
Stay safe Officers.
