Gun Salesman in Chief Raises Firearm Production by 140%

Barack Obama is proud of his numerous “accomplishments,” but on the issue of gun control, his success rate is admittedly off target. “[T]he one area that I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied … is the fact that the United States is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient, common-sense gun safety laws,” he lamented last week — a reality made more bitter by the fact Democrats strategically, and unsuccessfully, blame every nefarious shooter’s behavior on the weapons used to inflict harm. Their continuous gratuitous assault on the Second Amendment has America’s gun owners equally if not more frustrated. A new report by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has found, “[U]nder President Obama, gun production has spiked 140 percent to 10.8 million firearms in 2013, the most recent year for which data is available,” The Hill reported. If the Left’s goal is to reverse gun figures in America, it’s utterly failing. Erich Pratt, a spokesperson with Gun Owners of America, quips, “The ATF report confirms what we already know, that Barack Obama deserves the ‘Gun Salesman of the Decade’ award. People have been rushing to buy firearms because they’re afraid that Obama will take away their Second Amendment rights.” And for good reason. The administration is attempting to prohibit Social Security recipients from owning firearms if they are judged mentally incompetent. “[T]his amount[s] to the largest gun grab in American history,” according to the National Rifle Association. In his final 18 months, Obama will do all he can to ensure his legacy won’t go down as a gun salesman but as a gun confiscator. And that’s all the more reason to remain vigilant.
