You missed out on getting that AR, or AK, because prices spiked too quickly for your Obamanomics-impacted budget to handle? Well… It’s Father’s Day, and the market is flooded. Time to go look for a clearance sale.
Seriously… You can annoy a liberal, and save money at the same time. It’s like some sort of a magical set of circumstances that were created especially for gun enthusiasts on a budget. Gun stores currently have an overstock of merchandise, as sales decline from last year’s record breaking numbers. To consumers this means sales and discounted merchandise, to the industry it means a slightly less profitable year than last year, and to liberals it means an opportunity to weave an anti-gun narrative.
Brace yourself for a slew of stories about gun sales declining this year. A recent headline on Market Watch pretty much summed up the emerging trend among some pundits: Paranoia has its limits as gun sales slump. In other words: All those crazy, militant tea-partiers have finally stopped buying guns, and now businesses are coping with sales returning to normal.
Gun sales are in a decline from last year’s numbers… But, what did you expect? This isn’t a story about the declining interest in firearm ownership, it’s a story about free-market economics (which probably explains why Liberals don’t understand it). Obama, the Democrats in the Senate, and a billionaire-former-mayor of New York City, have all proven to be the best accidental-gun-salesmen in history… And that’s pretty unlikely to change.
