GUNS: President’s actions helping one industry

I have been critical of President Obama for his overblown rhetoric, misleading promises and outright lies regarding the financial and economic condition of our nation.

So I am pleased to commend his singular, but enormous, stimulant to one segment of our national economy. His irrational position on gun and ammunition controls has exponentially increased the market for all guns and ammunition everywhere. Many gun shops are sold out, and many customers are standing for hours in long lines. Membership in most gun and Second Amendment organizations is growing in record numbers.

So, many thanks, Mr. President, for your one positive contribution to our flagging economy.
