Gun production in US sets new record with 30 percent increase

***Fund raising status We wish to thank all those who have contributed to  our fund raising efforts so far this month. We especially would like to thank the two who contributed today.  We thank you deeply.  We realize the hardship this maybe causing, since everyone is in the same boat, so the gifting is even more precious for that fact.

Our deficit, is now at $160 with only 2 days left before the due date.  So if you have benefited in anyway from our work, then please help us stay up by donating at the Pay Pal button off to the right of the blog.  We realize, as we said before, that this is a tough time for everyone.  It maybe time to move onto another level of activity, so if you are unable to donate, please at least work to bring about good change to our brutally battered nation.  Do it for the children. Its why I was doing this.... for the children. 

(Just realized that the first falls on a Saturday.  This means we have till Monday the third to meet our goal.  Yahooo!  We just might make it.)

If we do not make it, then we will definitely keep this blog up for a reference and education aid to those you refer here or even if you need a refresher, you would be welcome here to use it as you see fit.   God bless and keep  you all safe and happy.  I feel its been a seriously productive 4 years we have had on here. I regret none of it.

Vatic Note:  I just heard a saying the other day about Americans:  "They bow their knee to no one"!  And that is why they wanted our guns.   Its true, when you truly stop and think about it.  While we are manipulated and easily distracted, in the end.... always, we bow our knee to no one.

They want a civil war, but given all the exposure that both sides of the political spectrum have been exposed to, its unlikely they will be able to divide us into any category because we all know who is doing it and why, for control of the globe and a slave depopulated work force and we will make them earn every single thing they get and it WILL COST THEM to do it which means some will not be around to enjoy the fruits of their corruption and treason.

That, more than anything strikes a cord of satisfaction in me, no matter how it turns out, many of these traitors will not be around to enjoy their gains.     I noticed in my area, everyone is out practicing.  Planning and test firing is at an all time high here.

We even got expert shooters to help us with perfecting strategy, tactics, handling reloading, underground operations etc.  Add that to the terrain here that we who live here know like the back of our hands, we have a damn good chance of prevailing for a long time at a very high cost to those involved since we know who they are.  If I were them, I would leave the area when it starts.  Anyway, it appears we are not alone in this, given the record increases in gun production.

Gun production in US sets new record with 30 percent increase
by RT publication,  Published time: February 21, 2014

Gun makers in the United States produced a record number of weapons in 2012, as new government data suggests Democratic presidents may actually be a boon to firearms manufacturers.

According to numbers released by US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, more than 8.5 million guns were produced in 2012, compared to about 6.5 million in 2011. That’s a 31 percent increase, and the highest number recorded since the agency began tracking gun production in 1986.

Interestingly, a 2013 study by the National Opinion Research Center found that gun ownership per household has actually declined to its lowest level in more than 30 years, so what accounts for the high sales? According to one gun advocate, it’s President Barack Obama.

“Barack Obama is the stimulus package for the firearms industry,” Dave Workman, senior editor of Gun Mag, a print and online publication of the 2nd Amendment Foundation, told Bloomberg News. “The greatest irony of the Obama administration is that the one industry that he may not have really liked to see healthy has become the healthiest industry in the United States.”
As noted by Bloomberg, more than 26 million were produced during Obama’s first term alone. Former President George W. Bush, a Republican, was in office for eight years before 28 million guns were manufactured.

Bill Clinton’s Democratic presidency, which saw the government mandate background checks for gun purchases, also boosted firearms makers, who produced 33 million firearms over eight years. During George H.W. Bush’s one term, 16 million guns were made.

Even gun control advocates find some truth to the idea that Democratic presidents help cause a surge in gun sales. According to Brian Malte of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, gun advocates have “demonized” Obama in order to sell more firearms to a smaller consumer base. (VN: He demonized himself, no one had to do it, just look at what he did, signed the NDAA constitution, bill of rights busting legislation, and turned this country into a police state.  Give me a break, and that is not all, there is much much more.  Even the dems know it, but they also know  he is run by the zionist foreign occupiers of our country.  That is who we should be demonizing. )

“We see the percentage of households owning guns declining,” he said to Bloomberg, “and that indicates that those who already own guns are buying more of them.”
Obama generally avoided the gun control debate during his first term, but he came out in favor of reforms after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that saw 20 children killed by a gunman.  (VN: which has now been proven to be a false flag done under the auspices of Homeland "Mossad controlled" Security, with no dead children, read our blog on the law enforcement man who blew the whistle on the hoax).

Although Congress has failed to pass legislation on the federal level, some states have forged ahead with their own gun control initiatives. California, for example, recently signaled its intention to implement its “microstamping” gun law, which requires manufacturers to imprint gun data on bullet casings when they’re fired. This has caused some gun makers to pull various models from the market.

Regardless, the latest government data seems to dovetail with the financial results of gun makers like Smith & Wesson, which experienced record sales during its 2013 fiscal year. As RT reported last year, the manufacturer said its sales of $588 million were a 43 percent increase over the previous fiscal year.

Whether or not such high-level sales can continue remains to be seen, but background check data seems to suggest 2013 it’s possible. The FBI conducted more than 21 million background checks related to gun sales in 2013, a seven percent increase over 2012.
