According to this News Beat Social video — which regurgitates NSSF stats — the US firearms industry added another 25k jobs last year, a 10 percent jump from 2014. There are 288k people working at making “instruments of death and destruction” in jobs that average a very healthy $50k a year (compared to last year’s median household income of $53,000 p.a.). Even with an estimated 300 million guns in civilian ownership, NICS checks continue their upward growth track. All reports to the contrary, the US gun business appears to be extremely healthy. But how much more can it grow? How high is up? How much bigger can the gun industry get?
