Well there is one bright spot in the economy
Gun sales are up 66 percent since the beginning of the Great Recession, providing an unexpected shot in the arm for the economy, according to a new study.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation claims that firearm sales hit $31 billion in 2011, up from $19 billion in 2008.
The increase in sales accounted for a 30 percent increase in jobs to 98,750 last year.
It also led to $2.5 billion in federal taxes in 2011, an 66 percent increase.
$2.5 Billion - isn’t that more money than Buffet Rule #1 is supposed to raise?
