President Obama: (Still) The Greatest Gun Salesman in America

In 2012, we nicknamed President Obama “The Greatest Gun Salesman in America” because of the effect his 2008 election had on the sale of firearms and ammunition. Now with America preparing for the 2016 presidential election, we take a comprehensive look at just how profound the “Obama Effect” has been on the firearm industry, especially as more Americans own more guns than ever before.

After all, in a humorous video that recently aired at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Obama revealed how he would ease his way into retirement. Perhaps the firearm industry should offer him a job once he leaves the White House, given how much he’s helped it grow?

    I’ve never owned a gun since I was young (a .22 rifle). My Uncle Sam loaned me one and I took good care of it. Since Obama took office I now own three pistols (2 automatics, 1 revolver) and have a CCW permit. I’d advise anyone who cares about the well being of their family, loved ones and themselves to buy a gun and learn how to use it. These are increasingly unsettled times and I’d rather have a gun and not need it than vice versa.

    Guns are like parachutes…if you need one and don’t have one you’ll never need it again.
