Obama is the best gun salesman ever

American Hunter

Obama is simply the number one gun sales man in the world since Samuel Colt and John Browning departed this mortal coil. He has probably sold more guns than even Mikhail Kalashnikov.

After receiving more than one million order requests in the first quarter of 2012 alone, Sturm, Ruger & Co.has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Ruger CEO Michael O. Fifer said that despite the company’s continuing efforts to increase production, the incoming order rate exceeds Ruger’s capacity to rapidly fulfill the orders. The temporary suspension is expected to last until the end of May.

Ruger’s success is part of what led the company to expand on its existing “Million Gun Challenge” with the NRA. The fundraiser became the “1.2 Million Gun Challenge” at SHOT Show 2012. The final results will be announced at the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings in St. Louis, MO.

    If you own a gun, and have a gun license, it seems that you are automatically a Redneck racist.
    Of course our local, peace activist/international (mercenary) security contractor, don’t feel the need to abide by the law. Going by testimony in the most recent court case, it would also appear that the natives feel they are also exempt from any licensing requirements. The Police should go back there, raid the place again, this time do the job properly and find the rest of the unlicensed firearms. The Courts also need to do there bit and loose the wet bus ticket.
    The law should be about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, not Law abiding citizens.
    As we know from the American situation, that the states with the most liberal ownership rules have the least violent crime.
    So the Question remains, 1 Firearm for every 10 people in the World.
    How do we sell Firearms to the other 9?
    Especially as we have one of the highest, if not highest per capita ratios, in the World.
    Don’t forget that the 5 permanent members of the UN Security council are also the 5 largest arms dealers in the World. US, UK, France, Russia, China.

    Before Obama it was 1 in every 12, didn’t he do well.

    Just trying to order firearm parts from Brownells is a PIA, They can’t seem to keep stuff in stock for any length of time & sell out quickly. It’s not likely to get any better as the year goes on either.

    So, looking at the intentionally misleading graph, sales are actually up about 4%

    Big deal.
