This one actually fits, unlike the Nobel Peace Prize shame they sold the world.

Obama retains ‘gun salesman of the year’ title as industry sales continue to explode

According to Bloomberg News:
More than 8.57 million guns were produced in 2012, up 31 percent from 6.54 million in 2011, according to data released this week by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which has been tracking the statistics since 1986.
Almost as many guns — 26.1 million — were produced during Democrat Barack Obama’s first term as president as during the entire eight-year presidency of his Republican predecessor, George W. Bush, the ATF data show.
The last sentence bears repeating — almost as many guns were produced during Obama’s first term as during Bush’s entire eight-year presidency. While Bloomberg tried to make the case that gun sales increase under all Democrat presidents, that stat is telling.
A few highlights:
Smith & Wesson reported record sales of $588 million for the fiscal year that ended April 30, up 43 percent over 2012.
Sturm Ruger reported net sales of $506.4 million during the first nine months of 2013, a 45 percent jump from the same period in 2012.
Clearly, the Obama administration and its gun control mentality has been a boon to the gun industry.
“Barack Obama is the stimulus package for the firearms industry,” Dave Workman, senior editor of Gun Mag, told Bloomberg. “The greatest irony of the Obama administration is that the one industry that he may not have really liked to see healthy has become the healthiest industry in the United States.”
Even more ironic, it may be the gun industry that’s keeping the economy afloat.
