Gun Manufacturer Stocks Surge As Leftists Cry for Gun Control
After the deadliest shooting in American history (see BREAKING: ISIS Claims Responsibility for Las Vegas Shooting. A Few Things… and Hillary Clinton Takes Aim at NRA, Silencers After Las Vegas Shooting) liberals have shamelessly engaged in their trademark knee-jerk reactions to a shooting: calls for gun control. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Because gun-manufacturer stocks are soaring. Higher than Bob Marley on a 747 at cruising altitude.
American Outdoor Brands (AOBC), the parent company of Smith & Wesson firearms and Gemtech silencers, rose nearly 7 percent. Sturm, Ruger & Co. (RGR) jumped 6 percent.
Gun manufacturer shares often rally in the wake of mass shootings, as it is expected gun owners fear a regulatory crackdown.
For those who aren't savvy in stock markets, those are some big jumps in such a small timeframe. The reason? Gun owners are afraid their guns will be taken. It's not a stretch when witches like Hillary Clinton essentially blame the NRA for a shooting when no motive is even known. It therefore makes a little sense for people to stock up on guns, silencers, and ammo.
It's threatening statements like this that have conservatives a bit flighty.
Damn. Sen. Chris Murphy, who reps Newtown, on Vegas shootings: "It's time for Congress to get off its ass and do so… https://t.co/Gi3GMNK3fE— Jennifer Bendery (@Jennifer Bendery)1506951058.0
We need #guncontrol to protect the freedom of innocent people who may be killed by deranged gun owners like #StephenPaddock.— David Edward Burke (@David Edward Burke)1506958322.0
I want gun control. I want Puerto Rico to have what it needs. I want children to have health insurance. I want something better than this.— Clint Smith (@Clint Smith)1506949133.0
Leftists cannot wait to use any criminal act involving a gun to blame the gun. Again, as of the writing of this post, no motive is known. We don't know how Paddock got the guns. Owning an automatic weapon is already illegal. So if he used an automatic weapon, he was already acting illegally. Men and women who break laws have no problem breaking laws. So more laws which restrict gun ownership isn't going to stop people who break laws.
Time for a refresher on gun control propaganda, yeah?
