Benchmark sees the re-election of President Obama as an event that could drive sales for Sturm, Ruger (RGR +3.3%) and Smith & Wesson (SWHC +9.1%) higher into 2013 and beyond. Though the firm expects underlying long-term organic growth in the sector to continue, it also sees "political" buying due to fears gun laws could become more restrictive.
