Double-digit increases in gun sales in New Mexico. Will the “good” times continue? Depends on who is slated to occupy the White House come January:

While David Cresap of Crosshair Gun Shop said any increase of gun sales at present is probably caused by the onset of hunting season and the holidays. He said he expects any increase in his sales to come after the Nov. 4 general election.

“If (Sen. John) McCain wins I probably won’t see it. If (Sen. Barack) Obama wins I’m looking for a sellout,” he said.

More good news for the gun industry for the wrong reasons.
