Thanks Obama: Smith & Wesson And Sturm, Ruger Are Soaring

Following President Obama's speech last night, Smith & Wesson is up 7.75% today (its best day in 4 months) and Sturm Ruger is up 8.25% today (most in 8 months)...

 

And the year-to-date gains are incredible...

 

So thanks Obama: courtesy of your inept approach to resolving every social issue not to mention your naive, recurring attempts to uproot the Second Amendment, you are making the US safer one teleprompted, faux-emotional speech at a time. Granted, everyone knows that was not your intention, but the public will take whatever it can.

 

So what changed? Why did Americans suddenly start getting more interested in guns in and around the end of 2008?
