President Obama's re-election has sent Americans running to the gun stores. Sales of firearms and ammunition are way up in reaction to Mr. Obama saying during the debates he wants to ban everything from "cheap handguns" to common hunting rifles with scary-looking features.
The top of the ticket isn't the only important choice gun owners face next Tuesday. Many voters will have the opportunity to thwart state-level leftists who have busied themselves battering the right to keep and bear arms.
President Obama is in a fix over firearms. He needs to win undecided voters in the swing states to be re-elected, but these areas are largely pro-gun. So after years of trying to dodge the issue, Mr. Obama let it slip in Tuesday's presidential debate that he'd push a gun ban in a second term.
Should President Obama win in November, it's a certainty he'll try once again to ban lead ammunition. Just two months after he moved into the White House, the National Park Service suddenly announced it was banning lead bullets from its parks.
Washington politicians are so anti-gun that they oppose a mere photo of a paper target. With D.C.'s gun-grabber laws under fire and pressure rising to allow concealed carry, the city's liberal political establishment is panicking.
Gun-control advocates are noticeably silent when crime rates decline. Their multimillion-dollar lobbying efforts are designed to manufacture mass anxiety that every gun owner is a potential killer. The statistics show otherwise.
The small community of Potlatch, Idaho, in the forested, western foothills of the Rocky Mountains, was created as a company town to house workers for the nation's largest white pine sawmill, and its tidy homes and straight, tree-lined streets are a testament to its planners.
The Obama years have proved to be a boon to the nation's gun industry, which has posted strong gains in jobs, sales, economic impact and taxes paid in the teeth of an economic downturn.
The economic impact of the firearms industry is up 66 percent since the beginning of the Great Recession, providing an unexpected shot in the arm for the economy, according to a new study.
