    GUN SALES ARE PLUNGING

    Gun sales are plunging - Feb. 14, 2014

    You know this will totally destroy the economy. Besides firearms, what has been driving the economy?


    Oh, wait, the subhead says this: "but they still exceed sales from before Obama's reelection and the Newtown massacre."

    All you need to get that number back up is to have some idiot in the White House start talking about gun control legislation again. Dude's the best advertising for gun and ammo manufacturers since Clinton. I know they think they're driving America toward more control, all they're doing in reality is pushing more people to purchase them out of fear that their rights will continue to shrink. Just wait until the Pres opens his mouth on control again, sales will be back up in no time.

    Was going to use my tax return for a new gun, but; the Feds got an additional $635 from me this year and the State of Oregon took $400! Nearly $100/month in taxes!!

    And there's positives both ways. If gun sales remain soft, prices will drop as manufactures compete for the all mighty gun dollar.

    I have almost all the FA's I really need so ammo is what needs to drop for me.

    The panic buyers are running out of money/credit/gun safe space.

    This is a good thing because the prices, including ammo prices, should come down and availability go up.

    I've seen this many times over the years.

    If a conservative or even just a progun president gets in the WH next election, then you will see all those guns and ammo being sold used at gun shows for a loss. Seen that too - for example, after Y2K there was a big sell off of survival supplies.

    Good friend of mine bought up a bunch of ammo a while after Y2K proved to be a bust.

    "Background checks by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, considered to be the most accurate means of tracking gun sales, plunged by a third in January compared to the year before. There were about 1.66 million background checks last month, and nearly 2.5 million in January the year before."

    I'm sure private "untrackable" sales are increasing every time CA or NY or CO passes another anti 2A law! Once the speculators who bought big after Sandy Hook run out of inventory, the trackable sales will go up again.
