    MSNBC Poll on CC ..... How safe do you feel ? hit this poll.

    How safe do you feel knowing there are people around legally carrying concealed guns?

    I thought I recently read where women are actually the biggest group buying arms and obtaining training?

    73.6% YES

    3.9% potential sheepdogs
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

    Great article. I like this quote:

    The highest gun homicide rate is in Washington, D.C., which has had the nation’s strictest gun-control laws for years and bans concealed carry: 20.50 deaths per 100,000 population, five times the general rate. The lowest rate, 1.12, is in Utah, which has such a liberal concealed weapons policy that most American adults can get a permit to carry a gun in Utah without even visiting the state.

    The biggest _new_ group buying arms and obtaining training.
    As related to the market norm being white males in specific.

    The market by current actuality and largely un-tapped/un-approached potential is quite wide.
    While traditionally the industry has always had a narrow focus toward exploitation of just one subset; Rural, and lately suburban (neo-rural), type white male buyers with interest in hunting and lately self-defense (carry) as well as pseudo-military product (ARs) and training.

    The statement by the as quoted person in whole is correct across the board.

    In fact prior to the recent Obama surge and to some degree the post AWB ban interest in ARs, the commercial (non-military but inclusive of law enforcement) firearms industry for over a hundred years had been flat with nominal growth in the single digits.

    Further the firearms industry as a whole inclusive of all manufacturers and associated employees is effectively a niche market compared to others such as automotive, information technology, and other commonly thought to big business industry.
    The largest mfr. of arms in the US has less than a thousand employees total. Total (!).

    Folk might be surprised at the realities of that industry.

    Further her statement of; “The industry constantly has to look for a way to make a guy who already owns 15 guns buy a new one.”, is also borne in fact.

    Look around at any vendors market offerings. You pick the vendor.

    To grow you can't simply depend forever as into perpetuity that the guy with 3, 15 or even 60 guns will buy a 4th, 16th, or 61st version of same/similar because you this year offer it with revised 'night sights', exotic material grips or as in some funky coloring ala Sig Sauer's former 'Gun of the Month' method.

    I have personally stated _exactly_ this as in so many words nearly word for word as is stated in the cited quotes to an industry Senior VP and Asst. Business Director for two of the nations oldest and largest firearms manufacturers. I did so in the last 45 days. Both in response stated that they agreed with me in full and that my data & facts were correct. Which they are, I promise you.
    They also agreed that something else as in more needs to be done.

    In my private life I have been and am still actively working toward 'something else' behind scenes and curtains.
