Gun Stocks or Gold?

This article explains how much better off you would be if you had invested in Sturm, Ruger & Co compared to gold.

In the time since he took office, gun sales have soared. The government doesn’t track individual sales. But the FBI criminal background check required to purchase a gun is considered a reasonable proxy, and these have hit record numbers each year Obama has been in office. This year, they’re on track to surpass 15 million for the first time.

Ruger has done especially well. Since Obama’s inauguration the company’s stock price has risen more than 400 percent, making it a better investment than gold, which is up 113 percent. “They’ve been outstanding in offering new products, especially in the concealable handgun segment,” says Jim Barrett, an analyst at CL King who tracks the gun industry and rates the company a “strong buy.”

It also highlights why you would be better off voting for Obama to protect your investment. A Republican president would harm gun sales.

    A safe haven, Gold and a Gun.
    Heard a rumor that firearms license applications here have been on the rise lately. The American militia has increased by 15 million. At that rate they may overtake NZ on a guns per population basis.
    I don’t think it matters who you vote for, the developed world has gone down the debt road to far, Governments will tax more, borrow more and print more money. All of it will make the problem worse; it’s like quick sand the more you struggle the faster you sink.
