Black Friday Gun Sales Break Records

Even as Joe Sixpack was maxing out that last credit card on useless gadgets (but not flat screen TVs as Corning was so nice to warn), he was making sure to have enough in store for that one final Plan Z purchase. Guns. As KNDU reports, "Gun dealers flooded the FBI with background check requests from shoppers,  smashing the single day record with a 32% increase from last year." USA Today has more: "Deputy Assistant FBI Director Jerry Pender said the checks, required by federal law, surged to 129,166 during the day, far surpassing the previous high of 97,848 on Black Friday of 2008." And in reality, the number is likely far greater: "The actual number of firearms sold last Friday is likely higher because multiple firearms can be included in a transaction by a single buyer. And the FBI does not track actual gun sales." And while Saudi Arabia is warning that women driving leads to the end of the world, in America women are now the marginal guy buyer: "Some gun industry analysts attributed the unusual surge to a convergence of factors, including an increasing number of first-time buyers seeking firearms for protection and women who are being drawn to sport shooting and hunting. Larry Keane, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, said 25% of the purchases typically involve first-time buyers, many of them women. "I think there also is a burgeoning awakening of the American public that they do have a constitutional right to own guns," Keane said. Yet Keane said last Friday's number appeared to defy complete explanation. "It's really pretty amazing," he said." Indeed it is, and unlike Europe, where with the exception of Switzerland the best the local rioters can do is some imported (from the US) tear gas, when the Arab Spring finally makes landfall, it will be time to use up those one way international frequent flier miles (assuming of course that American and soon others don't cancel them)."

Will have more to post later. Was just thinking about this topic (among other "end of civilization" type investments).

I skimmed one of your links to your past blogs and thought this comment of yours, a response to others, was interesting because you didn't hold back and show history knowledge that most here won't recognize. Write more stuff like this:

 "ALCON,

Thank you for the replies. For the record, I dont like guns. I dont like to point them fire them or keep one in the house.

I do keep a guns as in investment, responsibility, because I am God Fearing Adult, who knows the nature of disinfranchised and unemployed men. I have been to Aulzchwitz, the Jewish Ghetto's in Warsaw, although is a Jewish ghetto, there are no jews? There were no vigins after Russians took Berlin. Japanesse use to cut off the noses of the Koreans, who were disobiedient, Stalin or Hitler? Who was worse? Or Mao? about 60 million dead, most died unarmed. No more Jews in Polish Jewish ghettos etc.... Keep pretending that man is above these things.  US Army Jags were prosecuting 500 rape cases a week in Berlin after the fall of the Third Reich.  Killing Fields in Camodia etc...

Here is your word for the day Fools - pogrom

I read and I watch, I know that the Four Horsemen can ride at anytime, so I dont mock God by not being prepared.

The world markets have sold off at a record unseen pace. To pretend there is not going to be violence is the height of naive, childish, stupidity.  Which direction will these unwashed disinfranchised masses go? They will prey on the weak real or precieved. DO you think the world thinks Pres Obama is a strong leader?

Fools can take my views or leave it. Unfortunately, I have been right. abitarePERFECT has the red badge to prove it and abitare has the points.  I hope to be wrong, but I am not stupid. Faber and JR are saying the same thing."

RGR has far ourperformed SWHC during the same time frame and I still think RGR is the better company going forward.

I totally agree with the gun bull market theory, I just think if people want to play it they should go with the better company. 

My 2 cents.  I own RGR stock.
