    That's what has the gun industry spooked. Gun sales have been declining for a long time as the Rush Limbaugh/angry white male demographic dwindles. This is why they push the real addicts to buy closets full of the things -- to make up for the fact that fewer people are buying them.

    •  Actually, gun sales continue to increase (1+ / 0-)

      even as the number of gun owners declines. We now have people with arsenals of 30 and 40 guns claiming that they are all for self-defense, or possibly for overthrowing tyrannies.

      The obvious projection of this trend will be a handful of billionaires owning millions of guns each. Except not.

      So there will, in fact, be a Peak Gun period, when the number of owners continues to decline, and gun company revenue reaches its highest point and starts to fall back.
