Default Gun Activists get no credit for stimulating the economy?

With all of the panic and fear of new gun laws, the ensuing gun, ammo, and accessory purchases over this last month or so have to have stimulated our economy. Stuff is flying off the shelves and is out of stock everywhere. I would like to see a real # on the amount of spending taht has taken place over the last month. This should have a stimulating effect on the economy. Think that the liberal media or the current administration would ever admit that? Hell no!
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government"

I am sure if it was in the best interest of the industry one of the unions would publish the gross revenue created by the weapons industry.

We didn't build that.

I am sure the industry loves Feinstein, Shumer and their ilk. Look what they have done for sales of weapons, ammo and mags recently.
