Obama-era gun surge recedes as manufacturers flee post-Newtown restrictions

by
May 16, 2016

The Obama-era gun surge finally is receding, according to the latest government statistics that show the total number of firearms manufactured in the U.S. dropped in 2014 for the first time during this administration.

The numbers also showed the beginnings of a post-Newtown shift in production, as companies began to pick up and move in the wake of the 2012 school shooting in Connecticut and the spate of state gun control laws that followed.

Connecticut and Maryland, which enacted two of the nation’s stiffest laws, both saw their share of U.S. firearms manufacturing drop.

But in New York — another state that passed far-reaching restrictions in 2013 — production actually has increased, as companies like Remington ramped up to keep pace with demand, industry leaders said.

    Let’s send the gun manufacturing overseas to make more room for companies that make solar panels. That way Obama has more billionaire friends he can give our tax money to. Who cares if the average person can’t afford protection, while the elite (read: Liberals) can afford to hire armed guards for their children.

    Unless they are all registered, then you’ll be told even one is too many.

  • Rob1911a1

    Also, it seems that at the local, state, and Federal level, NO ONE IS OBEYING BOTH THE HELLER AND CHICAGO DECISION. Not only are new gun controls unconstitutional, the 30,000 plus local, state and Federal gun control laws, rules, and regulations should be gone as well. The Chicago Decision not only reaffirmed the Heller Decision, it went one step further – it “incorporated” the Second Article of Amendment into the 14th! That means any and all unconstitutional gun control laws/rules/regulations are a VIOLATION OF OUR CIVIL RIGHTS. Someone, somewhere in America (preferably in an area where the courts still respect the Constitution) needs to sue for having their CIVIL RIGHTS violated.

    New Town was a false flag. No one died…

    • I Seigel

      Huh? You need help.

  • jagragg

    “according to the latest government statistics” And under this administration, we are just supposed to believe anything they say? I think not!

  • exoticdoc2

    It is absolutely hilarious that morons like the Obamanation only manage to cause massive surges in gun sales and boost the industry.

  • Daniel W

    I would not be so stupid as to believe this article. With Obama in office. I do not believe that there is any such recession in firearm sales, if anything firearms sales have increased. I equate this with WHAT the Democrats have said about the sales of AR 15 rifles, after sales of AR 15 rifles were banned in numerous states Connecticut, Massachusetts, NY, Illinois, and some other states Democrats have stated that the sale of these fire arms had decreased.”YEAH BECAUSE SALE OF THESE RIFLES IN THE FOREMENTIONED STATES WERE PROHIBITED” ???

  • IMJSBNME

    It is called quibbling (presenting half truths and omitting information to present the opposite versus the truth). A cadet in the military academies will be kicked out because this shows a lack of integrity. 2015 had one of the highest guns sales in quite some time.

  • ScranunSlim

    Doncha luvvv it when Heather Helpless of EyeNitWit News breathlessly reports,
    “. . and police found OVER 200 ROUNDS of ammunition in the suspect’s basement.”

  • Jerry

    There is a cyber crime committed every 12 seconds. Should we confiscate all computers, software, and close the Internet. This would make as much sense as confiscating guns.

    • I Seigel

      No, but we try to arrest the hackers and limit their access to the internet.
      You could ask the same thing about cars or cough syrup. These can kill, too, if misused.

      • Gnowark

        Can’t do that, China, if not politically, is still our “most favored nation,” knd of like islamic terrorists and illegal aliens, they have more rights than we citizens have, as far as this administration and congress thinks..

        • I Seigel

          Lots of these hacking crimes originate in the Ukraine. China isn’t the only culprit. ISIS, Iran, N Korea and others.

  • Jerry

    It seems the intent to disarmed Americans is to facilitate us being slaughtered as infidel by followers of Islam/Muslims. I may be wrong, but such a strong effort to disarmed us doesn’t seem to be supported by the relatively low number of gun related crimes committed vs the number of guns owned by Americans.

  • Phillip_in_TX

    It sounds like a loud of B.S. to me!

    • Bob

      I wonder if we can change the meaning of “B S” to Barak Stuff? How about “Barry Slur”?

  • wmagg

    anyone with any access to the net knows this is a lie
    this administration is NOT capable of telling the truth.

    • I Seigel

      What does this have to do with the administration? This is a story about gun manufacturers and state laws restricting guns. Nothing about the administration or any federal-level laws.

      • kathy hopkins

        wrong again.o bozo is the reason for increase in gun sales thats why it has to do with the administration dummy!!!

        • Eleanor Cummings

          Whoop de do! Here’s that chain-pulling troll, I Seigel, again – on THIS site!. This troll is most definitely a liberal democRAT who gets on sites to try to start folks arguing with him, which is just his form of idiotic entertainment. No wonder his elevator doesn’t get off the first floor – the lights are out! I don’t believe he knows what he’s talking about, so I’ll just ignore him from here on in and read the rest of the comments – more interesting. Someone like that bores me to tears. You were saying…… ????

      • regulus30

        oh boy; you need help.

  • Larry

    Our constitutional gun rights are there because of the fear of men and political userpers like the present administration demorats. Be aware of the rat in the basement and the crooks in the pantry. There are enough guns for now, and we have what we need to defend our families. The message should be coming clear we want peace from terror by people inside the USA or outside the USA.

    • kathy hopkins

      HUH LARRY please clairfy that statemen u wrote so a dummy like me can get it.

      • Larry

        You can’t see the forrest for the lies. We are being slowly and sometimes not so slowly driven toward the end. Obummer and his administration is ripping at the treads of decency and moral values. God will not tolerate this.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    just wait till the freak leaves the white house and he only has a hand full of ss to protect them, i give the obomas about 6 months to live, after 8 years of they’re rain of terror, they have done more to destroy america then any terror group could ever do

    • jim

      Richard I think your right but he has done a lot of damage while shitting in the WH, its to bad he all the security for 8 years .

    • maxx

      America has experienced some incredibly terrible things in it’s 239 years but the last 71/2 years will go down in history as the worst of all.

      • Richard Bagenstose

        you are a 100% right , his legacy will be right next to hitlers , stalen and moew, how many of thousands have died in the 8 years of oboma and he turned his back on them , for saying he was the one to end wars , he has started wwlll, and hasn’t ended any wars, but if you believe in triblulations it’s said the anti christ will do this, is this proficy or is it just a coincodent

      • John T

        Even during the Civel War terrible things happened. Now Obama is backed by Hillary Clinton, the mainstream news media, George Soros, and David Rockfeller the New World Order U.N. world Govt. People! These elites want control of us all and all the world’s resorces. They don’t want the masses to have guns or cars, vacations or even families. They want a rigidly controlled society run soley by them.

        • kathy hopkins

          we will have another cival war that will make the first one look like childs play if they push to much farther .its in the air,but hope it dont happen

  • PIERRE77L

    If Tyranny becomes law. rebellion becomes duty. It is an obedience to God, compared to that monkey man in the white house. F**K YOU Obama. P.O.S.

    • Saved1973

      What do you base that statement on, can you tell us where in the Bible it says that “it is an obedience to God”?

      • Saved1973, its not so much just an obedience to God, but a right by God to protect ourselves. That’s one reason Peter had a sword. And you can read Luke 22: 36 where Christ said to sell certain things in order to purchase a sword.

        • kathy hopkins

          to sell ur coat,clothes or pawn something to protect your family and yourself or friends or pets or even ur inlaws ,well maby not ur inlaws and buy a gun to do so.

      • PIERRE77L

        It’s not from the bible. it is a statement from the Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin. Please read your American history and Ben’s writings. Thank you very much.

        • kathy hopkins

          u r wrong.dont show ur stupidity idiot.

          • PIERRE77L

            Ok ! Miss know it all Communist nurtured subhuman mongrel troll minded freak. That’s the problem when they don’t read history. Just take your special Olympic A$$ Up with those wheelchair. Who’s the whore that spawned you, Myopic A-hole?

          • kathy hopkins

            hahahahaha truth hurts huh piehole hahahahaha.

          • PIERRE77L

            Why don’t you get a rotten beat up pencil and masturbate with your shriveled pussy sweating with cottage cheese.

        • Dust off your bible,Pierre77L and look up this scripture. Look up Luke 22: 36. Most of our founding fathers were Christians and pretty well knew the laws of God and by such used what they learned and placed that language and entered it into the Constitution. They had to run from the chains of the English to have freedom and when they did, they remembered and didn’t want the same thing to happen in America and thus…we have the Constitution and all that is within it.

          • PIERRE77L

            Again ! I’ve said to the other person, that Benjamin Franklin stated that. Th reason we should be obeying God than men. That’s what he was implying. I know that the Founding Father based it on their belief in God. That’s how our Constitution was made, because of that.

          • Pierre77L, my bad. I’m sorry. What you just said now, explains what you meant, more clearly. Thank you.

          • PIERRE77L

            That’s okay. Everybody has their own. But it’s nice to know that we share the same thing for our love for this COUNTRY. Although I’m not born here. But I came from a dictatorship country which I’ve experience including Martial law for 24 years. It was very horrible during those tumultous times. Thank you for your understanding.

          • One day, Pierre77L, God is going to set up a kingdom [ here on earth ] and there will no longer be dictators or evil…only love and so much more. He has a wonderful plan for us all, all that love him.

          • PIERRE77L

            Yes. I’m a big believer in that. Hope we will have peace. Once He comes for those who believe in Him. Thank you for that inspiration, Tarbella.

          • Your welcome. Just remember all that Christ had done here as a human, we will be doing, and much, much more. We are going to become spirit beings and live forever…and have many powers that are good and we will never tire, but will rest on his Sabbath day. It will be beyond what any human could know. Yes, the hope is in Gods promises.

        • Saved1973

          O.K. I won’t argue with that. I believe that God’s Word DOES demonstrate that we have a right to defend ourselves, that’s why I gave your post an upvote, I was just wondering what specifically in the Bible you were referring to. Thanks.

      • PIERRE77L

        I wish I could give you words on the bible. But to let you know. This is a statement from our Founding Fathers like Benjamin Franklin who is telling us that if we are being pushed against the wall by tyrants. You have the right to rebel. As for reference, that there are verses that quote to defend yourself. We obey God than men. That’s all i could tell you. God is testing us.

  • USPatriotOne

    You notice they are talking about 2014, but in 2015, that was and all time high in Gun Sales. People need to learn the truth! I believe this is a disinformation article!

    • SDofAZ

      Cannot believe anything the media post. So this could very well be just passed along crapola.

      • Retired

        Sales are still up.

    • Retired

      They forgot to mention many guns are made off shore now at a third the cost to purchase.

      • Wambli525

        Excellent point Retired. From what I have seen, some of the the off shore quality levels are excellent.

  • regulus30

    read an article this week end about FACEBOOK editing relative posts to anti Obama articles and SHO NUFF this one will NOT LOAD. “We the People” have over 200 million weapons at our disposal;;;;;;;that IS ENOUGH to keep obammie in line for six [6] more months of his reign of terror against the nation HE HATES.

    • SDofAZ

      Another reason to not trust social media at all.

      • regulus30

        so why is FACEBOOK ceo meeting with conservative leaders this week?

        • kathy hopkins

          to get his anis chewed out hopefully or i might otherwise say the leaders may not get reelected again . i am sick and tired ,as are many,of those leaders being wooses and not standing up for our ,who elected them in the first place,conserevite values.please forgive spelling.

          • regulus30

            We the people HAVE NOT BEEN represented for fifty [50] years.

    • Rob1911a1

      Actually, it may be closer to 300,000,000. Just since the election of DUMBOEARS, ~100,000,000 NICS checks have been made (family working at FBI). That’s just in 8 years! There are easily 85 MILLION gun owners, and only ~800,000 sworn LEOs at all levels. Many rural LEOs have already stated they will not enforce illegal order; the rest have other tasks to occupy their time, not to mention that most do NOT WANT TO GET SHOT BY THOSE WHO OUTGUN THEM AND CAN PROBABLY OUTSHOOT THEM!

      • regulus30

        I know I can put 10 shots in a 3 inch circle at 230 yards; they would just spray while I sight in their forehead.
