Gun Owners ‘Made the Difference’ as Trump Wins White House – “’What happened Tuesday night was a reaffirmation that Americans can make the system work, and that this nation’s gun owners are a cornerstone of that system,’ said Alan M. Gottlieb, founder and Executive Vice President of the Second Amendment Foundation. He also chairs the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. ‘While America’s hard-working gun owners can celebrate the victory they helped make possible,” he continued, “we must remain mindful that the gun prohibition lobby, which is largely funded by elitist billionaires like Michael Bloomberg, will almost certainly double down on their efforts to erode our Second Amendment rights at the state level, whenever and wherever they can.’”

Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation SWHC, +0.17% shares closed down 15%. Gun sales ticked up after of President Obama’s elections on concerns that laws around gun control would become more restrictive, said Chris Krueger, senior research analyst at Lake Street Capital.
