PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:

Unemployment remains high.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF.org), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting, and shooting sports industry released a specially commissioned report detailing double-digit gains in jobs and other data showing the industry has been a leader in the nation’s economic recovery. The report can be viewed at http://nssf.org/impact/

Firearms industry members were briefed on the remarkable statistics, such as a 30.6% increase in jobs between 2008 and 2011 (from 75,600 to 98,750), a 66.5% increase in economic impact (from $19.1 billion to $31.8 billion), and a 66.5% increase in federal taxes paid by industry companies (from $1.5 billion to $2.5 billion, and similar growth in state and excise taxes).

“During difficult economic times and high unemployment rates nationally, our industry actually grew and created more than ten thousand new, well-paying jobs,” said NSSF President Steve Sanetti. “Our industry is proud to be one of the bright spots in this economy.”

The lamestream media didn’t get the memo, missed the briefing, and failed to report the good news, for reasons that were unclear at press time.

I really would like to get a new career involving firearms in my middle age, and it seems law enforcement is the only thing I can think of where I can get trained and put to work fairly quickly, so I ask, if we had sooooo many jobs created, assuming they arent military and law enforcement jobs, what exactly are they? Maybe I would go to school to get training. Thanks to anyone that would know.

The lack of coverage in the mainstream media is not due to lack of access to the information, but rather to direct open bias. The media has shown time and again that stories pumping fear and enhanced firearm prohibitions will always be the order of the day, whereas potentially positive stories concerning firearms in any form whatsoever-be it accomplished self defense, athletic prowess, or financial/employment benefits brought to the nation by the firearms and accessories transacted would be relegated to the file of obscurity.
