    Decade Long Gun Control Rebellion by Americans in Wake of Brady Bill

    An analysis of trends in handgun manufacturing for domestic sales since implementation ofthe Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act.
    By Charles J Blankenship

    ....snip.....


    Findings

    The following trends are concluded from an analysis ofthe ATF reports:


    1.Annual manufacturing of handguns for domestic sale increased by 219% between 1998 and 2010 since implementation ofthe NICS requirement ofthe Brady Bill. This is greater than the 137% annual increase in rifle sales for the same period. [A 171% increase in 2009 Ífìguresl.

    2.Annual manufacturing of small concealable handguns for sale rose by 667% between 1998 and 2010.

    3.Caliber .380 pistols represented 6.6% of total handgun sales in 1999 and increased to 24.2% by 2010.

    4.Annual firearm production and sales decreased during the 200l economic recession but did not slow down during the deeper and longer 2008-2009 global economic recession. This maybe the result of the effect of the election of 2008 and a perceived threat to gun ownership the election represented.

    5.Annual gun production and sales increased at greater rates following the 2008 election. Handgun, and particularly small concealable handgun production and sales saw dramatic increases in the years following implementation of the Brady Bill and were accelerated after the 2008 election. The clear lesson for policy makers is that Americans can rebel against gun control measures or perceived threats to firearm ownership, and that attempts to legislate or regulate firearms without Wide support u*om gun owners are likely to be counter productive.

    personally, i think that the significant increase in the number of states going to "shall issue" concealed carry laws, following the example of Florida in 1987, has played a bigger part in increasing the number of handguns sold than did the Brady Bill. yes, i know that a few states, like Washington, had "shall issue" laws well before Florida, but Florida, and the positive results emanating from it (and the lack of negative results), was the tipping point.

    the Brady Bill was a Federal, top-down effort to impose gun control on us. the increase in "shall issue" was a state-level, grass roots effort to expand our gun rights. a higher percentage of citizens - even those who do not personally own firearms - now believe in the right to own guns than at anytime in the last 50 years. all very good news for us, and very bad news for the gun grabbers. even highly publicized mass shooting incidents like Virginia Tech, Columbine, and Representative Giffords' shooting have not reversed or slowed this trend.

    not only are there more of us buying MORE guns, but we have more good choices than ever. there are many more good service-type pistols than ever before. all of the new 'mini' and 'micro' guns so perfect for concealed carry have been developed because there was growing demand for them. likewise for the growth in good self defense ammunition. showing my age here, but...when i first grew interested in firearms, the best self defense handguns were DA revolvers from Colt and S&W, plus the 1911 and the Browning High Power. there was NO self defense ammunition worthy of the name. yes, i know, plenty of people were killed with this old stuff, and i still like and own Colt and S&W DA revolvers. but would you want to be restricted to JUST those choices? if you're a 1911 fan, would you prefer to be carrying your average 1960 vintage Colt with its tiny sights, uncomfortable beavertail, and unthroated barrel? how many of you would want to carry 1960 type ammunition in your SD weapon?

    you youngsters take note: we're in a Golden Age for personal self defense right now. let's work to continue it and make it even better.

    I agree!

    The Brady Bill was a wake-up call to me. It made me realize how fragile my rights could be. It only takes one tragedy and the right group to exploit it to move congress in the wrong direction. Before the Brady bill, I did not have a gun in my house. I had left the guns I got as a youngster at my parent's house. the more I learned about the bill, the more I grew to distrust "common sense" gun control.
