3 Reasons Why Obama Was The BEST President America EVER Had For Gun Owners!


What I’m about to write is going to sound like heresy.

And if you’re an idiot, you’ll read the headline of this article and skip to the comment section to leave your thoughts without even reading my article.

If you’re NOT an idiot, you’ll read what I wrote and find you agree with me.


As Obama prepares to vacate the White House and President Elect Donald Trump prepares to move in, I find myself reminiscing on the legacy that Obama has left America with.

The good, the bad. Everything. And I smile to myself as I realize Obama has been the BEST president America has EVER had for gun owners.

Reason #1: Obama’s Anti-Gun Policies Divided The Nation Into Vehemently Pro-Gun & Anti-Gun People

That’s the look you get when you realize your legacy is EVERYTHING you despise!

I have to admit, I never paid much attention to national politics before Obama.

There’s a simple reason why too: even today, your “internal economy” is much more important than anything going on in the world around you. In other words, you can safely ignore 99% of the “news” and just focus on what YOU can do and YOUR mindset and be incredibly successful in today’s world. That’s because half the crap they print as news has no bearing on your life and is designed to keep you crippled by fear.

That said …

Obama Cured Many Gun Owners Apathy And Drove Them To Action!

When he did his dead level best to try to ban guns towards the end of 2012 he so inspired me … that he led to the creation of this entire business and eventually the website you’re reading right now!

He got a LOT of NRA members and other pro-gun Americans to get OFF their butts and call their Congress critters and act out in other ways that were pro-gun.

In short, because Obama hates guns so much …

And because he has made it so clear that he despises the gun rights a free people should naturally enjoy …

He has cured millions and millions of Americans of their apathy and drove them to start taking their gun rights seriously, to get more politically active, to get more guns, to get more training, and to be more prepared.

All that had an effect.

And it drives President Obama MAD!

CNN has a video called the “Legacy of Barack Obama” where President Obama is quoted as saying

“If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common sense gun safety laws.”

In short, because so many pro-gun Americans were “inspired” by Obama’s hatred for American gun rights that NO new gun laws were passed under Obama.

Sure, he tried to do a lot of “Phone and Pen” Executive actions but many of them — while annoying — did very little to affect gun rights. And on the upside, because they’re executive actions they could be repealed just as easily by future presidents.

Reason #2: Obama Is 100% Certified The Greatest Gun Salesman In The History of The World!

Closely related to #1 is that fact that Obama has inspired many millions of Americans to buy MORE guns …

And even drove many people who had never considered owning a firearm before to make their first purchase!

This is absolutely wonderful.

Along with that, the incredible growth in the firearms products and services market has been outstanding!

Everything from AR-15’s and their tactical accessories … tactical nylon … custom kydex holsters … tactical gun training … tactical shooting sports … aftermarket customization to Glocks and other handguns … the list goes on and on and on!

This has led to a ton of veterans coming home from the Global War on Terror (GWOT) being able to start businesses that have benefited Americans everywhere and the economy in total.

According to Forbes, the gun industry says it has grown 158% under Obama.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for firearms manufacturers, reported that the total economic impact of the firearms and ammunition industry in the U.S. increased from $19.1 billion in 2008 to $49.3 billion in 2015. The NSSF also reported that, in that same time period, the total number of full-time jobs related to gun making in the U.S. rose from about 166,000 to almost 288,000.

All this has led to an incredible increase in gun sales under President Obama!

Under President Obama, gun sales in in the United States broke record after record.

NICS checks (background checks performed at the point of sale in gun shops) broke records and reached new highs for 19 consecutive months.

On Black Friday alone, I’ve read enough guns were sold to private Americans in the United States to outfit the entire Marine Corps!

Under President Obama, the private stock of firearms in the United States will have increased from about 308 million to over 405 million firearms by most estimates.

Obama sold WAY more guns than his predecesor Bush! Just look at this chart showing guns sold per month comparing Bush’s last term to Obama’s two terms — it’s not even close!

In short, President Obama has been the greatest gun salesman in HISTORY!

Reason #3: Concealed Carry Has Grown More Under Obama Than Any Other President In History!


Barack Obama wasn’t just a great gun salesmen, he also presided over the largest increase in concealed carry permits in our history.

Under Obama, concealed carry permits skyrocketed a stunning 215%!

That doesn’t even include the states where NO permit is required. Which is what we all want, true “Constitutional Carry”.

A 2016 report from CPRC is packed full of facts the mainstream media would rather you not know. The bottom line is that the number of Americans choosing to arm themselves outside of their homes is exploding.

During President Obama’s administration, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared to over 14.5 million – a 215% increase since 2007.

To give you an idea …

Check out this animated image showing the GROWTH in the United States of Right-To-Carry laws …

Pay special attention to how, in 2008, after Obama’s first election, we saw multiple states pass constitutional carry laws!

In short, under Obama, right-to-carry laws have benefited to the point where there is NO state in the union that does not have some form of carry law because it was proven that it’s a constitutionally protected right.

Now, all fifty states have passed laws allowing qualified individuals to carry certain concealed firearms in public, either without a permit or after obtaining a permit from a designated government authority at the state and/or local level.

That has NEVER been the case in the history of our modern American government!

Sure, some of these states make it so hard with their “may issue” regulations that it’s practically impossible to get a permit there but those states will eventually fall too. They’ve already been beaten into submission by higher courts that they MUST allow some form of right-to-carry now they’re just twisting the rules as much as they can to have defacto regulations. Eventually those states will get legally challenged and more.

In short, we’re winning!

Conclusion: President Obama Has Been The BEST President For American Gun Owners In History!

The general trend since the founding of America in 1776 has been against gun owners …

Since the first time President Obama stepped foot in the White House, he has inspired America to reverse that trend.

Now Trump is heading into office.

So what’s it going to be fellow American?

Are you gonna relax now because “your guy” is in office and you don’t think you need to fight for your rights anymore?

Or are you gonna continue to pound the ballot box and raise holy hell with your Congress critter and make it so that Trump’s presidency completely overshadows President Obama’s legacy as the greatest gun salesman in history?

It’s up to you! SHARE this article with all your gun-loving friends and let’s make America great again for Gun Owners 🙂

  1. Only because I absolutely abhor the word “best” associated with the name “Obama” I prefer to say he is

  2. I read the above good news about gun freedom and our rights I agree 100% now you want the highest level of training to competently handle any gun?
    Go to http://www.frontsight.com we need to all get on the same page and be strong cause for responsible gun owners rights.

  3. Caleb — great article. I thought the only good thing obozo had done was wake sleeping Americans and make them aware of the total corruption in our government. But, thinking about it, he has done a great job of making American citizens aware of the fact they have to protect themselves. Thank you for all your hard work and articles.

    • Thanks for your comment Gerry — and you’re right — it’s absolutely WONDERFUL that more Americans today do not trust their Gov. It’s about time!

      • dude. How are you happy with a representation of the people that you cannot trust? That only rhymes with the mind of an anarchist. Loving to watch it all burn. Cowards, with your little guns. I wonder how tough you are when your kid dies in a school shooting. Let me guess, you think that’s all faked by the government. Retards.

  4. I’ve been saying for a long time that Obama was the greatest gun salesman in American history. Every time he would make some pronouncement against guns, people would go out and buy more guns and ammunition. My cousin works for Hornady in Grand Island, Nebraska, and because demand went through the roof, they had to add additional shifts, hire new staff, and add more lines to keep up with demand. The Liberals never understood that when you threaten to take something from people, the more they want it, and the more likely they are to hoard things.
    Personally, with Trump now in, all I want from his administration is for .22 long rifle rounds to become widely available and for the prices to drop.

  5. the turdface bastard was the first black pres. and also the worst pres. ever the rascal is a professed muslin and worked to make our country a third world nation,hopely GOD will help trump to bring us back to the country we were

  6. I agree with all you say and good work. My problem lies on the side you did not report. Just a few weeks ago over 9800 guns including gernade launchers went missing from the govt. If in your vast study did you happen to notice that a lot of immigrants came in and were placed all over this country? Why? Did you notice Amored UN vehicles traveling out hwys? Have you noticed the Hamas connected group BLM who has an audience with
    the president? Did you come across a spech Obama made in Fla telling the troops they did not need to listen
    to Trump and to question all he said? Did you read the article where the troops were asked would they shoot
    unarmed civilians? I am not a not but i am sleeping with one eye open. I suspect an action at or before Trump takes office where Obama’s army will try yo take control of America. Obama says he plans to stay in DC and Soros has told him to do so. This is the big reason he wanted your guns. I am a life member of the NRA. I support and agree with all you said but don’t lay your newly purchased guns in a safe and think ot os over yet. Please be alert to things around you and don’t just focus on your newly found growth in gun ownership. Obama is not done yet and i will be on vigil intil he is gone.
    Thank you for your hard work as it was well received and it helps to know . I want a national right to carry .
    When that occurs and Obama and the socialist politicians are gone then this old 75 year old body can rest.
    God bless you and all who love this nation and will fight to keep it a GOD fearing country and i mean JESUS not Allah

  7. Obama was stymied on the issue of firearms. He thought that he could ram it through and then he found how much he was wrong about the American people. It is scary that most of the Dem politicans will get behind anti gun causes. Sadly, this is also true of many Reps, they just won’t talk about it. The Globalists that finance thier compains have and agenda and one of the points is to make us subjects and take away our protection and our means to overturn repressive government, beit at the local, state or federal level.
    Ca and a couple more states and territories have already started to limit our self protection rights. Our military is not supposed to work inside the borders of the US. We have civilian police to do this. Even before 911, we saw many new LE angencies being created. Like park police, school police, transportation police. Many times it was done to keep a lid on salaries and some might hire out of shape officers that might not make it in a city’s force, many times they would put retired officers from a city force, to patrol schools and bus/train stations.
    Now, since 911 and the patriot act, it appears that they want to build a police force that answers to the federal government, maybe many agencies working together as federal cops.(Can you say Gestapo? Secret police? in country intellagence?) we all know that this can turn bad, hopefully, Trump will disband these forces and make laws about who is in charge and limiting the creation of more forces that no one really knows about.
    These are the forces that will collect firearms if it ever happens. These LE departments were created so they did not have local control, and that is even scarier.
    This is NOT a Dem vs Rep fight as much as it is a fight against the public for control – a true police state. We must try to stave it off before they get more power and whatever president uses his new powers to put the shackles on even tighter. We can not stand by because “our president” is cracking down on the types and groups you personally do not agree with, because one day it could very wel be aimed against you and by then it will be too late.

  8. I know that I personally have and continue to spend a larger portion of my income on firearms, ammunition and equipment because of Obama’s policies and hatreds. Every opportunity that I have financially I add to my collection.
    I thank Mr. Obama for waking many of us up to the Democrats Agenda to Balkanize the USA. His policies helped elect Donald Trump, which we hope will be good for America, but we must never become complacent about these Rights again.
    Hopefully greater advances in gun rights will be made during the next 8 to 16 years. 50 State reciprocity, repeal of FFA 1934 and all the other infringements that have occurred since 1787.

  9. Yeah, I’ve watched as ammo prices have skyrocketed. After the government under obeyme bought enough to kill every man woman and child 5 times over and still practice 5 days a week. Best plinking ammo the 22lr when you can find it is stupid expensive. Yeah, this is the ammo I grew up learning how to shoot and it used to cost .17 a box of 50 or you could get a brick for under $20, now it’s going for around $50…. How is this good for my grandkids? I’ve got boxes of Pro Load 44 mag that I bought for $21 and thought that was expensive at the time. The same box just a different manufacturer now is over $50…. awesome!!
    On top of all that I live in KALIFORNISTAN one of the microcosms of liberal idiocy that is driven by the idiot and chief…our gun laws are moronic but when you go to a gun show and 2/3rds of the crowd don’t speak much English and have can only be described as what you see in the you tube videos draped in red, white and green flags that are mad Trump got elected.
    I’m just glad I came from a family that served as did I and we didn’t have to go buy during this stupid time. We’ve always stock piled and in 1983 started reloading because I didn’t like the manufactured stuff at the time..

    If it took electing the worst president EVER to get us where we’re at, I’d rather have not ever seen that clown be born.

  10. Interesting article. That said, the following question remains. Obama had a long and prominent record of anti gun, anti gun rights activity, facts available to anyone who chose to do just a bit of looking. Despite that, he was twice elected to the nation’s highest office. What does that say about the voters of this country, a significant number of whom are gun owners.

  11. As we as a society are mostly educated by osmosis, therefore much of our action is just a reaction. Few of us consciously decide to do anything. We are like the pinball and/or the bumper. So, much of our “reason” is built upon conditioned response. Too many of us have triggers which cause us to respond. The fellow in the white house is built of many triggers, not the least of which is his color. That is why he was elected – because voting for him satisfied, the way a cigarette does. When this man showed up on the radar, I couldn’t count the number of times I warned the unwary of what he was. They mostly responded with frowned slurs as to my “fairness,” or prejudices, or some similar triggered response. The information in my complaint was ignored. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the GOP offered two totally unsatisfactory opponents. Trump was elected similarly, but the triggers are more rational. I just hope somebody can restore an education system soon enough to save us from reacting over a cliff, or something similar. (Like a World War, for example).
    Just out of curiosity, when I mention Russia, or Putin, does it cause a reactive discomfort in the psyche of the reader? We are mostly in a deep trance like brainwashed condition, you know, and the triggers are all over the place. Watch your step – think before acting – or speaking – or writing. Unfortunately, the triggers also impede thinking.

  12. First off I agree 100% with you, Pres. Obama is so against guns. I jointed the NRA. I served 11 years in the US Army I am a firm believer in our rights. I only hope now with Pres. Elect. Trump he will continue the fight for our rights,and I will continue to stand with him.

  13. Amen. Those who do not believe constitutional carry is a citizen’s right are sorely mistaken. They put out the argument, that the founders didn’t intend that the wording of the second amendment didn’t mean we could carry any weapon we wanted to in any manner we wished. If they would simply pick up a dictionary of the late 18th century and refer to it while reading amendment two, they would discover that our founding fathers were quite literal in their wording. They gave us the right to carry any bearable weapon on our persons without any legal requirement,other than to be a living, breathing ,human being. They observed that the ability to defend yourself or deter an aggressor was a basic right and inviolable. They did state that these weapons should be bearable. I suppose that carrying a cannon under ones coat would be inconvenient. Other than that,they saw no need to interfere with the average person’s good sense.

  14. There was one thing you didn’t touch on. He closed the smelting plant in Missouri driving up the price of ammo. You can find it cheaper on survivalist sites though.

  15. Exceptions aside, the real reason half the country went full retard and ran to the gunstore and started to parade around with rifles, is that they were scared to death of a “Kenyan muslim” in the White House, for no legitimate reason. Nevermind that he’s exactly the kind of nerd you should want in that position, nevermind that he fucking gave you healthcare. No doubt in my mind, this ignorance comes down to bigotry and sports team politics. After all, it takes courage to empathize and rationalize. I can’t see any other reason for this gunmania than sheer fear. Why don’t you put up an actual fight, with actual ideas, for an actual cause? Instead of comparing ways to end life and showing them off to the world? If your armageddon visions actually came true, you wouldn’t stop a nuclear government with your little rifles anyway. Let’s go, conservatives! Onward and upward! Less dumb shit, more actual stuff we need! Sorry and thank you.
