President Obama: (Still) The Greatest Gun Salesman in America

In 2012, we nicknamed President Obama "The Greatest Gun Salesman in America" because of the effect his 2008 election had on the sale of firearms and ammunition. Now with America preparing for the 2016 presidential election, we take a comprehensive look at just how profound the "Obama Effect" has been on the firearm industry, especially as more Americans own more guns than ever before.

After all, in a humorous video that recently aired at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Obama revealed how he would ease his way into retirement. Perhaps the firearm industry should offer him a job once he leaves the White House, given how much he's helped it grow?
