Yes, gun sales are up
UPDATE: at Montana Rifleman, which produces barrels for DPMS and others,
"The company is currently running a 10-hour day shift seven days a week, and a night shift Monday through Thursday. Sipe said if he can fill out his machinist positions the production line will be running day and night, seven days a week."
It looks like they found a clever way to reduce the number of "killing machines" that get into the public's hands and financially damage their enemies on the biggest revenue days of the year, all without Obama having to pass any laws. They just "accidentally" happen to get overloaded and shut down the background check system. I think they're going to have to make a new law that if the system is down for more than an hour or more than 1% of the time then checks would no longer be required. Or maybe better yet they should be required to pay the profit margin on each lost sale. The only problem with that would be that they probably just wouldn't pay and it wouldn't be worth suing for.

Every time I go to the gun store I end up leaving early because it is too crowded.

My son works for Ruger. He's been putting in 55-60 hours a week for almost a year now. Day shifts are currently working 5 10-hour days, second shift is working 5 12-hour days, and they're planning on adding a 3rd shift to cover weekends.
