(see this article) The uncertainty of the economy and the steady rise of unemployment have prompted a lot of Americans to consider arming themselves. FBI background checks for handgun sales has soared 44% since 2006 and even there is no direct correlation between background checks and sales, one can still logically assume that with more checks there will be more arms sold. Smith & Wesson’s numbers seem to prove this hypothesis. Smith & Wesson also plans on selling its perimeter security business to focus on its core gun manufacturing business. The security business has been losing money mostly due to cutbacks in government spending and so beginning from October, the perimeter security business will be reported as a discontinued operation in the financial results.
