Gun industry declares Biden salesman of the year :: 01/12/2022
President Joe Biden’s previous stint in the executive branch of government was as vice president. His boss at the time, President Barack Obama, was such a voracious anti-Second Amendment type that he drove gun sales at a record-setting pace. For eight straight years, he was the best gun salesman the firearm industry has ever seen.
That’s definitely a part of Obama’s legacy that Biden has fully embraced, as the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Larry Keane has detailed.
See, one of the downsides of talking about gun control is that pro-gun folks will believe you when you say you want it. We see no reason to really lie about it, so when you talk about banning the sale of something or even just making it harder to buy a firearm, we listen.
We listen and we buy.
After all, if you’re going to ban the sale of certain weapons, then it just makes sense to go ahead and get it while it’s legal.
Biden’s anti-Second Amendment push creates a sense of urgency that didn’t exist under his predecessors. Yeah, Obama was anti-gun, but he said during his campaign that while he’d like gun control, he didn’t see it happen. After he was in office, he had an adversarial Congress for much of that time. There wasn’t really a threat.
But Joe Biden ran on a gun control agenda. He made it clear he wanted gun control to happen and he was looking at a Congress that was more than willing to make that happen.
So, as a result, people are flocking to the gun store.
To be fair, it’s not all about Biden’s anti-gun push. That’s part of it, but there are other factors. Economic concerns, a soaring violent crime rate, a pandemic, concerns about future civil unrest, all spin together to create a vortex of reasons someone may want a gun that has nothing to do with how anti-gun the president is.
Couple Biden’s stance on the issue, though, and you get a perfect storm that more than covers any issues the firearm industry may have had over the past four years.
Frankly, if Biden wanted to help the firearm industry, I can’t think of a single thing he could do differently that would work better.
