This is an odd idea. And I'm not saying that I believe it. But I haven't heard it anywhere. And its a novel thought.
A lot of people have been buying a lot of guns recently because we fear pending gun control. Is it possible that the gun manufacturers have a hand in encouraging a possible gun control to drive sales?
I'm skeptical of the idea, but there is an awful lot of crony capitalism in every other industry, why not here?
The possible gun control has driven up the gun prices, gun part prices, and the stock prices of the publicly traded gun manufacturers. A lot of money has been made.
I don't like being this skeptical of every thing and everybody.
