Whenever Dems take power, gun manufacturers with the help of the NRA help push fears, especially in right-wing media circles, of a curb on 2nd Amendment rights. This emotional response helps drive up demand.
Gun manufacturers actually prefer having Dems in power for this reason. They make more money.
You mean as Biden primarily talked gun control in his speech last night, is about to sign an EO attacking cops again and Beto just disrupted the TX press conference to rant about gun laws? Yeah idk why anyone would think that stuff lol.
Crime is surging around the country. People are getting more and more desperate. Some screaming about a summer of rage so people are fearful of another 2020. Plenty of reasons to want a gun these days.
It started with the thug G Floyd being killed due to a drug induced (probably overdose) resisting arrest incident. This was followed by a summer of riots complete with killings, burning of property, insurgency, threats and follow-through on threats of violence. Violence condoned by liberal politicians.
No justice, no peace. Remember all that? Looting, smash and grab. Calls for cops to be killed. Cops ambushed and killed. Record numbers of cops killed. Random attacks on Asians and Whites. Remember that?
Uh, yeah, there are a few other reasons besides 2A!
Balm, your Nasty Gene keeps kicking in, sadly. Are you as unhappy as you appear to be. Engage Miura, he'll make you a better person. Is he intimidating you, too? Are you just plain tired if him always being right?

So they buy them while they think they still can. Where if they never had that thought they may be outlawed, they would have never bought the gun in the first place. Hence, the threat of making guns, and/or certain guns illegal, pushes sales beyond a normal market for them.
I know my own father had no need, nor desire to own an AR-15. He collects guns. But when Clinton was elected, he bought one, and several large magazines, not because he really wanted it, but as a collector he wanted one in case they were outlawed. Every other gun he ever bought was a pistol or shotgun or rifle. He also bought a stock of the large magazines for several of his pistols just before they were outlawed. And honestly at this point, if they outlawed AR-15's, there would be no huge collectors market because everyone who collects has one, because they may become illegal.
Collecting and capitalism is what's driving gun sales. Democrats are a gun shop's favorite politician.
