Why Gun Sales are on the Rise in 2012
by B. Gil HormanFebruary 13, 2012
Gun salesGun sales were up in the U.S. during 2011. The good news for the industry is that business in 2012 promises to be just as good or even better. In January 2012, the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF) adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) numbers showed an increase of 17.3 percent in gun purchase related checks compared to the same time period the previous year. January marks 20 straight months of increased NICS report requests.

Some anti-gunners reject the idea of using NICS reports to track gun sales. They say there’s no way to prove that every single check resulted in the purchase of one or more firearms. Fair enough, if you’re going to split hairs. Instead, we’ll just have to settle for saying that the number of individuals willing to drive to a gun store, tell the gun seller they want to buy a gun, fill out the forms for said purchase, and pay the fee required for a NICS report, has steadily increased for more than a year and a half.

Another indicator of firearms industry health is attendance at the annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) held in Las Vegas. In January, SHOT Show reached a new record with more than 61,000 in attendance, including over 36,000 buyers shaking hands with 1,600 exhibitors. Although the show has been well attended for several years, not every year is a good one for manufacturers. This year was different. In speaking with a variety of gun and ammunition company representatives since the show, they’ve all had the same good news to share. They left the show exhausted and happy because of the large sets of inventory scheduled to ship in the course of the show.

It’s good to know the folks in this industry are currently enjoying some much needed job security. But this increased level of gun sales begs an important question: If the country is still suffering from a weak economy, with many individuals struggling to keep their heads above water, why are people choosing to part with their precious cash resources to buy firearms?

The available numbers indicate that, in general, people in the United States seem to have a more positive attitude towards gun ownership today than in the past. For example, a recent Gallup poll shows the number of participants in favor of banning handguns has dropped to a record low of 26 percent compared to 60 percent in 1959. When asked if so called “assault rifles” should be banned, 53 percent said no. Those in favor of enforcing the gun laws on the books are up to 60 percent, while those who want additional regulations are down to 35 percent.

As hopeful and helpful as poll results are, they still don’t answer the fundamental question: Why has there been a shift to a much more pro-gun stance? Hard numbers and statistics are not readily available to delve into the minds of those who are choosing to purchase firearms at this time. Instead, we’ll have to settle for what can be called informed conjecture. Here are a few of the most popular theories for accelerated gun sales that regularly show up in the conversations around the industry’s collective office water cooler:

Shooting’s New Positive Media Image
Popular mainstream television programs about guns and shooting, such as Top Shot, are sparking viewer interest in the sport. While the competitive and informational aspects of these shows are entertaining, the programs also disprove many of the negative stereotypes surrounding gun ownership. As a result, many first-time shooters are making their way to the range.

An Attitude of Self-Reliance
As the country continues to suffer from a weak economy, it seems counterintuitive that individuals would chose to invest in relatively expensive items like firearms and ammunition. However, with no relief in sight for the high unemployment rates, along with continued cuts in funding for important law enforcement services, more people are choosing to take personal responsibility for their safety. The sales of compact handguns for legal concealed carry are steady and strong. Greater access to concealed weapons permits has fueled a surge in women choosing to become gun owners. According to a Gallup poll, a record 43 percent of women in America say they have a firearm in their home.

The 2012 Elections
As this year’s Presidential election approaches, Second Amendment advocates are energetic in emphasizing that voters choosing to keep President Obama in office would deal a devastating blow to gun rights. Obama’s arrival in the White House helped to generate record gun sales in 2009. His appointment of anti-gun justices to the U.S. Supreme court, the Fast & Furious scandal and his open support of the United Nation’s gun ban treaty have worked to fuel gun owners’ concerns. Although Obama is purposefully stepping around gun related issues as he ramps up his campaign, gun buyers are likely to keep gun sales high in 2012 if it appears the President will win.

Are you planning to buy firearms this year? If so, what’s your motivation?

    you must be stupid thinking you'll survive in your plywood house defending your cans from basement with a gun! what you'll going to do when you run out of supplies , water, gas etc? let's say you have to stay in your house for 6 months. you'll stay? what you going to do when you'll run out of bullets? In worst scenario (no electricity, no gas, no water, no heat, no money, no food (in stores - because been empty by others with guns), no bullets - the best way is to stay away from cities, stay away of society - to survive. I'll pack and move up north or in a deep wilderness. Right now I'm not buying any gun, I learn how to survive out there (out of cities). That all we should do! Train your self for the worst survival conditions: run every day at least 20 km (with 20 lbs back pack) , hike, swim, be fit for surviving. Take care of your health, go for physical exams, blood work, make sure your are in good health. Take your vitamins, eat well. If something happen in dec 2012, will be more easy to survive in wilderness than in cities! Just think about it!

    The Fast and Furious
    operation by itself should have resulted in Holder’s resignation, but it is the
    cover-up that has prompted serious calls for Holder’s ouster.

    On May 3, 2011, in a
    House Judiciary Committee hearing chaired by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Holder
    testified: “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and
    Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” Newly released documents
    show he was receiving weekly briefings on Fast and Furious as far back as July
    5, 2010. It appears Holder lied to Congress. (Judicial Watch sued the DOJ and
    the ATF to obtain Fast and Furious records. The Judicial Watch investigation
    continues.)

    Unfortunately, when it
    comes to Holder's corruption and abuse of office, Fast and Furious is just the
    tip of the iceberg.

    On February 23, 2011,
    Attorney General Eric Holder announced that DOJ lawyers would no longer defend
    the constitutionality of Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), as
    applied to homosexual couples. DOMA had passed Congress by a vote of 85–14 in
    the Senate and a vote of 342–67 in the House. President Clinton signed the act
    into law on September 21, 1996.

    Judicial Watch filed
    two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the DOJ (including one on
    behalf of the Family Research Council) for records related to this
    pro-homosexual marriage decision. This failure to defend this federal law is
    unprecedented and raises serious questions as to whether President
    Obama and Eric Holder are
    upholding their oaths of office and following the Constitution’s command to
    “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

    The DOJ continues to
    stonewall the release of information regarding Supreme Court Justice Elena
    Kagan’s participation in Obamacare discussions when she served as Solicitor
    General. In addition to forcing Judicial Watch to file a lawsuit to obtain this
    information, Holder’s DOJ thumbed its nose at Congress by failing to release
    this material to the Senate Judiciary Committee during Kagan’s judicial
    confirmation hearing. Holder continues to personally resist requests from
    Judicial Watch and Congress for additional information on this controversy.
    Kagan’s role in these discussions is especially significant now that the U.S.
    Supreme Court has announced it will consider challenges to the constitutionality
    of Obamacare in Spring 2012.

    New revelations emerged
    in 2011 about the DOJ’s Black Panther scandal. Judicial Watch uncovered evidence
    that the liberal special interest group National Association for the Advancement
    of Colored People (NAACP) may have had an inappropriate amount of influence on
    the DOJ’s decision to drop its voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black
    Panther Party for Self Defense. This comes on the heels of sworn testimony that
    the Civil Rights Division of the Holder DOJ makes enforcement decisions based
    upon race.

    Most recently, Judicial
    Watch obtained shocking documents suggesting the Holder DOJ is conspiring with
    scandal-ridden Project Vote (President Obama’s former employer and ACORN front)
    to use the National Voter Registration Act to increase welfare voter
    registrations. One former ACORN employee (and current Project Vote Director of
    Advocacy), Estelle Rogers, is even helping to vet job candidates for the Justice
    Department’s Voting Rights Division! (ACORN and Project Vote have a long record
    of voter registration fraud.)

    Seeming to affirm
    ACORN’s hijacking of the DOJ, Holder recently said in a speech that he plans to
    use “the full weight” of the agency in 2012 to attack states that are enforcing
    laws that protect against fraud in the voting booths. This speech ended the
    pretense that the DOJ is independent from the Democratic National Committee and
    the Obama campaign – as it repeated almost verbatim the partisan arguments made
    by the Democratic Party against voter ID laws.

    Holder must go. Pick
    your reason – Black Panthers, race-based decision making, abandoning the Defense
    of Marriage Act, Fast and Furious killings and lies, or turning the DOJ into an
    arm of the radicalized left –- but Holder must go.

    Much of this heavy gun buying has a lot to do with sweeping concealed carry reforms that have been taking place on a state by state basis since the very late 80s. Concealed carry paid off big in reducing crime in America. Consider the following:

    The U.S. Department of Justice's own National Institute of Justice /Bureau of Justice Statistics, and the FBI Uniform Crime Report, both of which -- for the last two decades -- show that there are fewer and declining gun crimes and fewer and declining gun accidents where law abiding Americans bear guns both in and out of the home. The old failed gun control laws from the post World War II period were proven not to work. The creation and implementation of "concealed carry reforms" in 1987 that started with the Florida experiment and now include 49 out of 50 states correspond closely with the reduction of violent crime and reduction of gun accidents.

    Wisdom and proven history would dictate leaving these successful reforms in place and even promoting further reforms to include national reciprocity and civic responsibility with advanced use-of-force and safety training at a young age similar to the successful small arms training of young people in Switzerland and Israel.

    Concealed carry reforms are here to stay. To deny them or try to create a wedge issue out of them when there are so many real problems to deal with is unproductive. Most Americans support concealed carry (DOJ’s NIJ/BJS) because it works and gun control does not.

    First, criminals do not go to gu stores to buy guns. You can go to any major city and buy a gun on the streets.
    Second people are buying guns to defend the Constitution and America. If Obama gets re-elected with his Marxist-Socialist (Communist) government, it will be an uprising in this country. Obama is just playing nice to get re-elected. If he gets re-elected, watch out because America will go to the dogs.

    Original "forged receiver" Soviet AKs were not produced long before even the Soviets adopted a stamped receiver version which was actually deemed better for production and maintenance purposes. The stamped receiver Romanian AK-47 marketed through Century Arms and others is more representative of Eastern European and Soviet AKs seen during the Cold War and in the numerous brush wars in Africa and Latin America. That is basically the type that we ran into in Iraq too. Not the best in accuracy compared to the AR (M16-series) platform and western European designs, but they will take severe abuse and keep shooting. I don't know much about the Chinese versions, but I heard that Norinco Arms AKs had/have such added niceties as extra hand fitting and greater accuracy barrels.

    A reliable handgun for each responsible adult in the family is a good idea. Glock, FNH, Sig, and others are good choices. Consider too a reliable 12 gauge shotgun loaded with 4-5 rounds of all-lead 00 buckshot for night time home defense. Have a use-of-force plan, some family training with follow up and proper storage -- and you're set.

    Good choice. I have an old Ruger Mk II that I bought in the late 80s and have since passed it on to my son. In fact, that is him when he was 9 years old with that very gun in my avatar photo. (Normally, he would be wearing eye protection but he was posing for the camera). He is 13 years old now and also has a .22 Ruger 10-22 rifle that I gave him and a .30-06 post-World War II commercial Mauser sporting rifle that my father-in-law gave him (I'm jealous). My son is now a Life Scout and is working on his Eagle Scout requirements. He loves to camp and shoot and manages to excel in academics. I just hope the "magic spell" doesn't break. I know your daughter will enjoy the Ruger. It is accurate reliable and really fun to shoot.

    My wife is an Air Force veteran so she had to qualify with the M-16 rifle every year, but she is still not crazy about shooting. She views guns as a sort of "necessary nuisance" to be "tolerated" because she knows the world is an often unkind place. She was herself the victim of a brutal assault before we met and she is still suffering the mental scars and physical head trauma of that tragedy.

Encourage your wife to view guns as the utilitarian tools that they really are -- sort of like fire extinguishers and insurance policies. After a few calm sessions on the range, most people come to enjoy them as they master them.

    My carry weapon is an old .45 Colt Officer's ACP or .45 Springfield Armory 1911A1 service pistol. We keep pistols on our night stands at night and a 12 gauge pump shotgun in the corner of the bedroom. We also have a home alarm and keep an outside light on at night. During the daytime, all guns are locked in the vault except what we keep on us for concealed carry.

    Congratulations on the decision to be armed and have a plan. Hopefully you won't be in a use-of-force situation, but you will be ready if and when.

    society is collapsing in no small part thanks to obama and the socialists policies. we have creeping sharia,OWS, communist union thugs and other radical elements that are threatening our freedoms. our economy is on the verge of collapsing which i believe obama wants and when the food dries up people will do anything to take from people who prepared so it would be smart to be armed to protect your family in any case. the founding fathers were a lot smarter than obama or any of the politicians we have today. unfortunately we may have to fight to keep our bill of rights.

    Threats to the 2nd Amendment by this administration aside, there have been sweeping concealed carry reforms in 49 out of 50 states that have promoted accellerated gun purchases. The DOJs own National Institute of Justice /Bureau of Justice Statistics, and the FBI Uniform Crime Report have shown that over the last 20 years there are fewer and declining violent crimes and fewer and declining gun accidents where law abiding citizens bear arms in and out of the home. Apparently, more guns = less crime. The current death of the old draconian gun control is as sure as death itself -- and it couldn't have happened sooner

    My favorite is 2 12 guage pump sawed offs with pistol grips they realy get your attention then I follow up with a 9MM and 8 10 shot clips while the wife is reloading the shot guns. I prefere close combat it's up front and personal that's why I prefere the shot guns. But they are kinda messy.
