Gun manufacturing has doubled during the Obama administration.

The manufacturing boom has come in the face of the president’s push to expand background checks and place new restrictions on guns in the wake of high-profile shootings like the recent mass-killing in Charleston, S.C., and the 2012 massacre at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school.

The numbers paint a picture of gun owners who are concerned about new restrictions on their Second Amendment rights, activists say.

“The ATF report confirms what we already know, that Barack Obama deserves the ‘Gun Salesman of the Decade’ award,” said Erich Pratt, spokesman for the Gun Owners of America. “People have been rushing to buy firearms because they’re afraid that Obama will take away their Second Amendment rights.”

The ATF’s annual firearms commerce report tracks the number of guns manufactured in the United States, which provides an indication of gun sales around the country.

The number of guns manufactured increased by 18 percent during the George W. Bush administration, while the Clinton administration actually saw a 9 percent reduction.

  • Something about having a black President in the White House scares the hell out of some people.

    • whatthe46

      something about having a minority with an education like Obama scares the hell of some people. which is why the education in the minority communities and the south fk’n suck.

      • The Original Just Me

        But most of the Black Folks are smarter than the Tea Party/Republicans already.

        • whatthe46

          we know that. lol. that is precisely what’s pissing them off.

          • The Original Just Me

            Yea, it does make it quite hard for the Conservatives to converse on a level field when they have to look up at their peers all the time.

            • whatthe46

              SWEET!!!!

              • The Original Just Me

                Thank you but I already knew I was SWEET.

          • Tommie

            And that they keep bringing up the “stats” on how we are dumb!

            • whatthe46

              but, i don’t speak “duh duh” like the “duh duh” repukes.

  • Dwendt44

    I assume the campaign donations to Republicans also doubled.

    • The Original Just Me

      Nope, just the NRA donations and memberships.

  • Suzanne McFly

    Crap, that is gonna make confiscation that much harder when we get the call to start the collection.

    • Larry Schmitt

      He’ll have to work overtime to seize all those extra guns. We need an old fashioned tote board, like Jerry Lewis used to have for the telethons, to show how many guns have been seized.

      • The Original Just Me

        They are practicing for this Big Move in Texas with the supposed Military Maneuvers.

      • Suzanne McFly

        I have my two wheelbarrows ready for the moment collection starts

        • FatRat

          Lift with your legs and not your back. (smile)

          • Suzanne McFly

            Of course :)

    • The Original Just Me

      So many gun registration lists to go through.

    • BigDumbWhiteGuy

      It’s all part of Obama’s jobs plan. Be a Kenyan Muslim Socialist Gun-Grabbing dictator so people will demand more guns, the manufacturers will respond by ramping up production, creating more jobs (you see how this whole supply and demand thing really works RWNJs?), more guns bought equals more that need to be confiscated, and we’ll have to employ people to do that too! Brilliant!

      • Suzanne McFly

        I am glad he thought this through, he is brilliant.

  • arc99

    So the people who are not sure if Hawaii is a state, are afraid that the President will somehow orchestrate nationwide gun confiscation in the remaining 18 months of his presidency.

    Let me know if I have missed anything.

    • The Original Just Me

      No, I think you still have a grip on Reality.

    • Dwendt44

      He’s waiting until they aren’t looking.

      • Larry Schmitt

        Makes perfect NRA logic. The same kind of logic that says more guns = a safer public.

        • Dwendt44

          More cars on the road makes for fewer accidents. Makes as much sense.

          • Larry Schmitt

            That right there is a picture of a seriously deranged man.

            • Dwendt44

              That’s how he evaded the draft; mental problems.

  • Warman1138

    The selling power of unfounded fear, propagated by bogus people.

  • amersham46

    Stupid people with money by stupid things

  • Some of these paranoids hoard 1,200 guns plus ammo. And then die unarmed in their car exclaiming “If this is heaven then where is the god damned gun store???” http://www.alan.com/2015/07/22/more-than-1200-guns-found-in-home-of-man-decomposing-in-car/

    • The Original Just Me

      I like that one. I know a Doctor that has 10,000 rounds of just 22 LR bullets. Ain’t he in the Life Saving business ?

  • Larry Schmitt

    Kinda makes you wonder if the NRA didn’t lobby FOR the president. He’s been great for their business.

    • The Original Just Me

      Yea, Go Figure.

  • The Original Just Me

    Doubled production ? But Colt is going Bankrupt. Lordy, I guess this means they are making guns faster than Pres. Obama can take them away. OOPS, He ain’t taking them away. That is just another Tea Party/Republican Propaganda Myth.

  • William

    Job creator, epic.

  • tracey marie

    Let’s be honest, the teabaggers have already worn the shirts that said…

    “no black man in my white house”

  • Tommie

    Yeah, because they think he is coming for their guns and being half black, they think he is trying to destroy this country and they are gearing up for the revolution!

    • Larry Schmitt

      The only things revolving are their heads.

  • John Tarter

    It’s the one area of the economy that he has had a positive effect on.

    • Gladly the Cross-Eyed Bear

      Anyone intelligent blames the NRA…

      Present company excepted.

      • Larry Schmitt

        You did say anyone intelligent.

    • Dwendt44

      there’s nothing positive about thousands more guns in the hands of criminals, irresponsible gun owners, or mental cases.

    • Larry Schmitt

      So you evidently haven’t noticed the overall improvement in the stock markets since he became president. The millions of added jobs. The lower unemployment rate. I’d say the facts make a complete liar out of you. But you should be used to that.

    • Hogandda

      How “The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment aid plunged last week to the lowest in nearly 42 years.” And 42 years ago there were 100 million fewer Citizens.

      Bet you hadn’t heard that. But this is just a few of the positive effects of the Obama Administration.
