Trump election drives up gun sales to minorities
As Imstapundit asks, is there anything that Trump cannot do?
There has been some thought that gun sales might slump off, but I am skeptical there. I saw an industry study years ago that tried to determine whether the rapidly rising sales were due to fear of then-new president Obama. The study singled out guns that people would think were more vulnerable to restriction -- handguns and "assault rifles" -- and compared their sales trends to general firearm sales trends.
The finding was that after his first election and for, if I remember correctly, three months after, the more vulnerable firearms had a sale surge disproportionate to other firearms, but after that, all firearms began surging. The conclusion was that were seeing some general trend to want more firearms that was not being driven by political fears.
