Perverse Disincentives

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Big headlines, Trump is bad for the industry, profits are way down from what they were under Obama, jobs threatened.

 Which industry?  The gun industry.  Obama was its greatest salesman.  Under Trump, the gun industry is crashing.

 Fewer gun sales means fewer guns on the street which, as every Liberal knows, means less crime, less domestic violence, fewer dead children, fewer animals suffering lead poisoning . . . Trump has accomplished more in eight weeks than Obama accomplished in eight years, so why isn’t Trump getting more credit from Liberals?

Consistency isn’t their long suit.

  1. It’s a wash JD: More minorities are buying guns following Trump’s election. America will continue have the opportunity to shoot its way to less gun violence.

  2. One part of me makes me feel all warm and tingly since Soros is a big investor in the gun industry.

    America will continue have the opportunity to shoot its way to less gun violence.

    and eTASS – eat shit and continue to live in an alternate universe. “Eat Shit” is a very civilized response to the crap that passes through your keyboard, especially since it had been debunked time and time again. The fact that you and facts do not get along is very evident, as well as your inability to learn.

  3. OMG, SSOLSEmery!

    If law abiding, responsible minorities start buying guns, they might get involved in shooting sports. If they get involved, they are going to come into close contact with racisss, white conservatives. If they to come into close contact with racisss, white conservatives, they might start to make friends and gosh…share ideas!

    And it gets worse, SSOLSEmery. If law abiding, responsible minorities make friends with with racisss, white conservatives, why, they will find out white conservatives are not only NOT racissss, but it is the conservative agenda that provides a path to success and self reliance…no more poverty pimps!

    Reprobate leftists, such as yourself SSOLSEmery, are in mortal danger of becoming identified as the degenerate, dishonest, self-serving scumbags you really are. What will you do?

  4. What Swiftee says. Get minorities out to the range and in contact with some of the friendliest folks I’ve ever met, and they’ll learn quickly that the “race hustling poverty pimps” have been, politely speaking, selling them a line of bull. I’ve personally taught kids from the inner city how to shoot–it was a great time!

  5. The professional management of these companies should have realized the pace of sales couldn’t be sustained and planned accordingly.

  6. It’s a wash JD: More minorities are buying guns following Trump’s election.

    Emery, how can it be a “wash” if minorities are buying guns? They are in the minority, after all.

  7. Emery’s got a point: Democrats see the election of Trump as a terrible thing for America, not only because it hurts the gun industry, but because of the darkies grabbing up guns which, as everyone knows, was the original problem that gun control was intended to solve. Glad to see Democrats have not abandoned their traditional concerns.

  8. It’s rather ironic that when there is a black in the WH, guns sales go up. And when there is a white in the WH gun sales go up.

    Either way, it’s a win — win.

  9. I’ve been meaning to do a large ammo buy, and I’ve been wanting my own AR for competitive shooting. If sales are dropping, I should sit back and wait for the fire sales.
    Does anyone know if Gander Mountain has announced WHEN they will be closing the Woodbury store?

  10. It’s rather ironic that when there is a black in the WH, guns sales go up. And when there is a white in the WH gun sales go up.

    Re the “black in the white house” – correlation <> causation. Bubba Clinton sparked a spate of panic buying, too. I suspect President TIm Scott would not get shooters especially exercised.
