One industry is already suffering due to the election of Donald Trump. The gun industry.

Courtesy of CNN Money: 

What happened? Trump was endorsed by the National Rifle Association and was the clear favorite of white, rural, gun-loving America. 

But the stock prices for Sturm, Ruger (RGR) and Smith & Wesson (SWHC) have both dropped by more than 20% since Trump won. 

The problem is that gun lovers are losing their biggest boogeyman: Hillary Clinton, who would have continued President Barack Obama's pursuit of gun control legislation. 

She was so reviled by the industry that Ruger CEO Michael Fifer described her in August as "actively campaigning against the lawful commerce in arms." At the same time, his company reported a 19% spike in quarterly sales, fueled by fear of Clinton.

Before the election, "there was a widespread expectation that Hillary would win and some gun retailers began to stock up, expecting strong demand surge from the prospect of tightening gun control under a Hillary Clinton administration," said Rommel Dionisio, a gun industry analyst for Wunderlich Securites.

That's right folks, without the fear of the "gun grabbers"coming to take away their penis extenders ammosexuals just don't buy that many guns. 

This is an industry that literally relies on the cowardice of its customer base.

If these sad little crybabies did not live in fear that any minute somebody was going to break into their house and beat their chubby little ass before stealing their beer can collection they would probably never buy a single gun.

But now that Donald Trump claims he is deporting all of the Mexicans and Muslims (You know, terrorists.), who do they have to fear anymore?

If the NRA had been smart they would have either stayed out of the election process altogether or endorsed Hillary Clinton who was the one candidate they knew would keep guns flying off the shelves.

    Just think of all the guns that were sold during the past eight years because of President Obama being POTUS.

    The NRA was so afraid of him and constantly promoted that all Americans should arm themselves because President Obama was going to take away their guns! Which, of course, turned out to be a friggin' lie!

    The majority of homes in America now have/own an abundance of guns due to the NRA fear mongering.

    As much as I hate to say this - and I'm doing so because I fully support and supported POTUS Barack Obama - all of these guns will now allow Americans to protect themselves in the upcoming civil war Trump will create because of his self-declared racism, fear and hater declarations!

    Plus, we have no idea how he is going to handle the millions of protestors across the country that are in no way behind or supporting him as to being named potus!

    The majority of Americans are already well armed to protect themselves as I'm sure they will should the need arise!

    America has so much to fear!

      Luckily, for now, you are wrong -- the the percentage of households with a gun is about 1 in 3, not the majority. and, it varies by location.

      And, incidence of having a gun in the household seems to be declining little by little

      What is driving sales of guns are the households that own more than one. The average # of guns owned is about 8, double what it was in the 1990's.

      Not sure what they think they can do with so many guns, but it comforts me a bit to know that all those guns are concentrated among a few really scary people, and not spread out among many sort of scary people.

      You are not accurate, 7:47 AM or the information you are using is wrong.

      People across our nation DO have more guns than they ever did before. Remember too, that we are a huge nation.

      I'm in my 70's and have lived in the same state and large city I'm in for fifty years. There is NOT a soul I know that does not have a gun or guns at their disposal!

      Don't kid yourself. The majority of Americans are not ignorant as to what could occur under a dictatorship of Donald Trump. Just go back and listen to the rhetoric he put out there during his campaign and things he has said throughout his life.

      He is the very LAST person in America that should lead us!

      He is not to be trusted, is a loner, listens to no one (except his kids!), lives a life of lies and fraud and is the very last person that should be responsible for our country and where he could lead us - civil war, WWIII, etc.

      Disaster is ahead of us - get ready!

    I'm sure they had to tell Trump how to hold the firearm since he supposedly doesn't use them! Only his creepy sons do!

    Is this an implicit message from the gun industry that enough guns have already been sold in the US?

      The pussy is too scared of the protesters to attend any outdoor event. Even during the inaugural parade the pussy president and his illegal naked wife will complain it is too cold to walk and will stay in the president's limo where it is safe from flying objects.

    2. Anonymous9:13 AM

      I still think Trump will be assassinated within the first year. There is way too much hate out there against this man who is perceived to be a tyrant! Plus, it's increased because of the white men he is rumored to be selecting to work along side of him.

      America is in major trouble and we need to prepare ourselves. I fear for my minority friends, Muslims and the hate and racism that is going to rise and spread across our country.

      We need to be ready to protect our friends and fellow Americans!

    The NRA can start a new gun boogeyman and that would be Vladimir Putin, who is President-elect Trump's new Puppet master.

    While American troops are busy rounding up illegal Mexicans and illegal Slovenians, Vladimir who is President-elect Trumpski's new broski sends in his Russian troops to invade the rustbelt deplorables who voted dumbass in and by that time it will be too late for American troops to respond.

    Or the NRA can start a new gun boogeymen and that would be the protesters and rebellion leader Hillary Clinton along with the US Congress and military leaders are planning a coup d’etat to take back America as the KKK, Alt-Rights and deplorables are still celebrating Trump's illegal win because did not win the popular vote.

    1. Anonymous9:04 AM

      You guys keep forgetting the NRA has supplied all American homes with guns because they were hollering President Obama was going to take them away! Americans went out in mass and purchased them based on that bullshit!

      And, guess what, President Obama NEVER TOOK THEM AWAY!

      Now everyone has guns and can fight the big fight that is coming our way in the form of civil war that will occur due to the rule of Dictator Trump!

      He will never be my 'whatever they are going to call him'! What a joke that he is suppose to lead our country. A major gaff!

    Trump wants trial delay until after swearing-in

    Story highlights:
    Trump University is the defunct for-profit real estate school accused by former students of fraud

    Attorneys cite the demands of the grueling presidential transition period

    (CNN) Donald Trump's attorneys want the upcoming trial on Trump University postponed until after his swearing-in.

    Attorneys filed a motion Saturday night in federal court in San Diego asking for the trial date to be continued from November 28 to a date after the presidential inauguration on January 20.
    They argue that such a postponement is most important for the President-elect because he must not be impeded from pursuing the arduous presidential transition.

    "This is an unprecedented circumstance," the attorneys said in their motion, which was first reported by Politico.

    Trump University is the defunct, for-profit real estate school accused by former students of fraud. Trump remains at the center of three civil cases filed against his controversial education business venture, including the one scheduled for trial in San Diego on November 28.

    Conway: Trump will drain swamp — but retain D.C. insiders
    By LOUIS NELSON 11/13/16 10:17 AM EST

    Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said Sunday morning that “the gravy train is about to have its wheels blown off” when the Manhattan billionaire assumes the presidency in January, and that shakeup will happen regardless of who fills some of the key roles in his administration.

    The president-elect built his campaign around his outsider status, pledging to “drain the swamp” in Washington of the politicians and lobbyists who he railed against throughout the race. But his transition team has been filled in by familiar political faces like former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), along with a collection of lobbyists. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, hardly a Washington outsider, is reported to be at or near the list of candidates to be Trump’s chief of staff.

    Conway said Trump will stay true to his swamp-draining campaign promises, even if his transition has thus far taken a more traditional Washington form.

    “Look, these are people who are talented and have done this before. You can't just appoint novices, you have to have people who know what they're doing. But at the same time moving forward this is an administration that's going to run very differently than typical Washington,” Conway told host Chris Wallace during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”....

    Trump told his supporters to riot if Hillary won. And he said if Hillary won it would be because the election was rigged. What a nasty, sleazy, monster he is.

    The truth finally comes out Trump is a scam artist. Trump said he alone can fix Washington.

    So America elects a novice to be president but he needs Washington insiders help to drain the swamp. LOL

    She is another one that is going to eat her words!

      And hopefully suffer. Karma needs to bite. She was not a lawyer defending a client who had a right to a fair trial. She was actively and happily pushing the evil and unqualified Trump on the American people and constantly lying and creating coverups. She was gleeful about Comey when she said the damage was done. She is scum. Needs to rot.

      Speaking of guns, I stand by Facebook not preventing its content regarding the possible assassination of Trump. Facebook never stopped itself from publishing fake news re Hillary, and if they are going to let the election be affected in that regard, then they shouldn't leave out anything else associated with the election and presidency.

      With that jaw line she could eat like a pig and get one elected.

  19. Oh, but stock in privately run prisons has increased 40%.

    Who would own gun stock and not own prison stock?

    1. Anonymous12:49 PM

      That's because trump u intends to build thousands of private prison camps to house the protesters before the you fired part. Thus creating more room for global warming and toxic water. Most brilliant bullies own both gun and prison stock. its genius!

  20. Anonymous2:27 PM

    Don't worry about the gun sales, with Trump in office there'll be at least one or more wars and they'll be flying off the shelves.

  21. I guess the NRA didn't think far enough ahead. They were YUUUGE Trump backers. Wonder what they thought they were going to accomplish once he won. That Trump would have the government buy lots and lots of guns from their sponsored suppliers?


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
