America and Its Guns

America is known throughout the world as a country that loves its guns. Beyond that, in the last year or so, since the election of President Obama, sales of guns and ammo have spiked on fears that the new administration would push legislation that would limit the sales of firearms. The administration actually hasn’t acted to limit access to guns, and as a result, the gun boom has faded.
