Last year, approximately 287,980 people held jobs in an industry President Barack Obama has worked seven years to minimize – the gun industry.
That represents a 73% increase from the estimated 166,000 industry related jobs that existed in 2008 when Obama assumed office.
Despite the president’s best efforts to wage war on the Second Amendment and get tighter gun laws on the books, many in the industry claim his efforts have, instead, produced an increase in sales in the industry.
“He’s been the world’s best gun salesman,” said Michael Cargill, owner of the Central Texas Gun Works in an interview with Infowars. “Everything’s up compared to last year due to the threats of executive actions President Obama has made. When he steps up to the microphone to talk about gun control and the legislation he thinks Congress should approve, gun sales actually soar.”
According to figures from the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s 2016 economic impact report, wages in the industry have increased as well. The average wage for gun-related jobs had risen to $50,180.
A spokesman for the organization proudly stated, “Our industry is proud to be on e of the bright spots in this economy.”
“The economic growth America’s firearms and ammunition industry has experience over the years has been nothing short of remarkable. During difficult economic times and high unemployment rates nationally, our industry has grown and created about 21,000 new, well-paying jobs over the past two years.”
The states with the most gun-related jobs are ranked:
- North Carolina
