BREAKING :
A PROPOSAL TO LET LAW-ABIDING ADULTS IN UTAH CARRY A CONCEALED FIREARM WITHOUT A PERMIT MOVED ONE STEP CLOSER TO FINAL PASSAGE ON TUESDAY, BREEZING THROUGH THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON A LARGELY PARTY-LINE VOTE. THE BILL’S SPONSOR, REP. WALT BROOKS, ARGUED TO HIS HOUSE COLLEAGUES THAT CONCEALED-CARRY PERMITS DO NOTHING TO SUPPRESS GUN VIOLENCE AND SAID 19 STATES HAVE DISPENSED WITH THE REQUIREMENT.REMINGTON IS THE OLDEST FIREARMS COMPANY IN AMERICA. SPEAKING FOR MYSELF, I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT SURVIVE. DURING THE BREAKUP OF REMINGTON, THE AMMUNITION SIDE OF THE COMPANY WAS BOUGHT BY VISTA, THE COMPANY THAT OWNS FEDERAL AMMUNITION, AND FROM WHAT I CAN TELL REMINGTON AMMUNITION (KNOWN AS “BIG GREEN”) WILL SOON BE CRANKING OUT AMMO IN THE GREEN BOX. WORD ON THE STREET IS THAT THE FEDERAL PEOPLE MEAN BUSINESS AND REMINGTON WILL BE MAKING AMMO UNDER ITS OWN NAME.BIG GREEN IS IN BANKRUPTCY, AGAIN… AND EVIDENTLY THE ASSETS OF REMINGTON PROPER HAVE BEEN SECURED BY A COMPANY TITLED RICHMOND ITALIA. LITTLE ELSE IS KNOWN OF THEM EXCEPT THEIR STATED COMMENTS TO KEEP REMINGTON VIABLE AT SOME LEVEL. “SOME LEVEL?” IN 2017 THE ILION, NEW YORK PLANT EMPLOYED SOME 700 PERSONNEL WITH 200 MAKING THE MARLIN LINEUP. STURM, RUGER, & CO BOUGHT THE MARLIN LINE AND HOPEFULLY WILL BE PRODUCING IT SOMEWHERE.GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES ARE ONCE AGAIN PUSHING THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY TO PRODUCE ANTI-GUN PROPAGANDA WITH THE EXPLICIT GOAL OF ADVANCING FAILED FIREARM LEGISLATION. THE RENEWED OVERT EFFORT WILL STRIKE SOME AS SUPERFLUOUS, GIVEN HOLLYWOOD’S LENGTHY TRACK RECORD OF ANTI-GUN AGITPROP AND LEFT-WING POLITICAL MONOCULTURE.2020 WAS A BIG YEAR FOR GUN SHOPS ACROSS THE NATION. NEARLY 5 MILLION AMERICANS BOUGHT A FIREARM FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2020, ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL SHOOTING SPORTS FOUNDATION. THREE WEEKS INTO THE NEW YEAR, THERE ARE NO SIGNS OF STOPPING — AND SOME LOCAL GUN OWNERS HAVE NOTICED IT’S HARDER TO GET THEIR HANDS ON AMMUNITION. ACCORDING TO A SURVEY TAKEN BY NSSF, AT VARIOUS GUN STORES, 40% OF SALES IN 2020 WERE TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER PREVIOUSLY OWNED A GUN.

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Sportsman’s Warehouse’s Q3 Results Show How to Do Sporting Goods Right

Sporting goods retailer Sportsman’s Warehouse’s (NASDAQ:SPWH) third-quarter earnings report showed that fully embracing all aspects of the outdoor recreation market can be a winning combination. While American Outdoor Brands, Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS), and Vista Outdoor are all running away from firearms, Sportsman’s Warehouse is deeply embracing them, and it’s paying off in higher sales across all of its segments. Sportsman’s Warehouse said third-quarter sales rose 8.7% to $242.5 million on a 4.8% increase in comparable-store sales, exceeding even the high end of management’s guidance for a range of 1.5% to 4.5% growth for the period. Comps grew in every category of the retailer’s operations, helping it record adjusted earnings of $0.25 per share, down $0.01 from the $0.26 per share it posted last year, but in line with analyst expectations. Fishing was the standout segment in Q3, with sales rising 9%, followed by clothing at 8.3% and camping at 6.8%. While firearms and ammunition brought up the rear with a combined 4.9% gain, it was a healthy increase for an industry that has been in a three-year-long slump. Firearms especially showed strength, with sales growing 3.9%, supported by an increase in the number of guns sold. The gun industry has been promotional to help lift itself out of the doldrums, and it’s beginning to work. FBI data shows the number of criminal background checks performed on gun buyers has been running at double-digit growth rates over last year, even when adjusted for checks on concealed carry permits of existing gun owners.  [full article]
