AWR Hawkins for Breitbart News reports:
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is reporting that gun production has more than doubled during the Obama presidency, increasing “140 percent.”
This jump is based on 2013 production numbers, which is the most recent year where complete numbers are available.
According to The Hill, the gun industry manufactured approximately “4.5 million firearms” the year before Obama entered office. In 2013 the number manufactured was “13.8 million.”
....Gun Owners Of America’s Eric Pratt observed, “The ATF report confirms what we already know, that Barack Obama deserves the ‘Gun Salesman of the Decade’ award. People have been rushing to buy firearms because they’re afraid that Obama will take away their Second Amendment rights.” NRA spokesperson Jennifer Baker added, “President Obama has been relentless in his attacks on the Second Amendment, and it’s not shocking people are frightened and want to protect themselves. He’ll stop at nothing to strip people of their constitutional rights to self-protection.”
