    Very small industry, fear sell to uneducated people. Check classifieds to see guns bought last year now fore sale at 30% lower price. Yes these are smart families.

    Smart enough to be able to defend themselves and hunt for food. You call it fear sales, most weapons owners see it as insurance and a hobby. I hope you have more than a cell phone to defend yourself if your house is broken into in the middle of the night.

    Much of Smith & Wessons sales came from President Obama's new buys for military and local police.

    Terry330(David Axelrod) you are the funniest poster here on SA. Obama is the best thing that ever happened to the gun industry, he is personally responsible for the largest increase in FBI background checks to purchase a firearm.
    In December 2011, the FBI reports the number of background checks has already topped the previous one-month record -- set only in November -- of 1,534,414 inquiries by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System also known as NICS. Almost half a million checks were done in just the last six days before Christmas.
    So Obama had 1.5 million background checks done for the military and local police in December? No, the military and police buy straight from the manufacturer and do not require an FBI check. What a fool.
