Management and employees at Ruger and Smith & Wesson have done pretty darn well under Obama. Their business is booming and their stocks are way up. If I had to guess, I'd wager that at least a few senior NRA executives probably own a few shares of Ruger or Smith & Wesson in their personal investment portfolios. I wish I was smart enough to buy some in 2008.

Kind of makes me wonder who they might be pulling for? A Romney win might slow the gun buying frenzy that they've enjoyed under Obama...

I would bet at least 40-50% of S&W employees voted for Obama and will again.

I would highly doubt that.

They may vote Dem for other reasons, but I'd bet higher gun sales isn't one of them. He is not good for firearms companies long-term. I would also go out on a limb and say that the heads of these companies are not voting for Obama. I know Kollitides won't.

Agreed. My comment was based on odds only. Odds are, based on Demographics, many people at S&W pulled the (D)umb lever.
