Firearms Demand Slipping

The article is not exactly correct where it says the laws have not yet materialized. Just two examples: HR 45 which will be extremely restrictive if it becomes law has been quietly making its way through congress since about last January. Also, the secretary of state is trying to go around through the back door and has announced US support for the UN's global gun control (spell that people control) treaty which previous adminstrations have steadfastly resisted. Anyone who thinks the current administration's anti-Second Amendment agenda is not alive and well is just not paying attention to what is going on in that venue.
