That crack about looking at an assault weapons ban in the presidential debate certainly did its part to stoke firearms sales. If the voters return Barack Obama to the White House for another term, fuhgeddaboutit. That said, there must be an upper limit to the number of firearms any given gun owner’s safe will keep and bear. That said, newbies may be fueling the current sales surge, as states liberalize concealed carry laws and gun culture 2.0 kicks in. In that sense, the firearms industry can’t lose. If Obama stays, so does Heller and McDonald (the Supreme Court decisions striking down handgun bans) and Call of Duty. If Romney replaces Obama as Commander-in-Chief, restrictive gun laws may fall even faster, with national reciprocity for concealed carry on the horizon. A couple of pro-gun Supreme Court nominees and Bob’s your gun-toting uncle. Good times.
