Firearms and commerce

Gun-related biz is way up according to an ATF report:
The 2013 update reports more than 6.5 million firearms were manufactured in 2011(the latest year available) and more than 4.8 million firearms were imported into the United States in 2012. In addition, more than 1 million National Firearms Act (NFA) transfers were processed by ATF in 2012, and there are currently more than 3.5 million NFA firearms registered. The number of federal firearms licensees (FFLs) increased from 123,587 in 2011 to 130,956 in 2012. This reflects a 6 percent increase in one year.
The report's data dates from before the Democrats drove millions more guns into civilian hands as Americans reacted to the political assault on the Second Amendment beginning in December 2012.
