Re: S&W says "ouch"



You're naive as hell. Gun OWNERSHIP hardly depends on gunmakers - not
when there already are as many guns as Americans in America.
The damn market is saturating - fast - anyhow. How many more guns can
the industry sell to an owner who already has 3-4 rifles, 3-4 shotguns,
and 3-4 handguns - which is fairly typical?
Whether Smith & Wesson goes under won't have any effect on either
whether better-managed firms that don't sass the customer base prosper
- or whether you can keep what you own. The strength of gun-rights
politics in America is the INDIVIDUAL GUN OWNERS - who are single-issue
voters in nearly all congressional districts - and not the
manufacturers.
