Weapons dealers in much of the United States are reporting sharply higher sales since Barack Obama won the presidency a week ago. Buyers and sellers attribute the surge to worries that Obama and a Democratic-controlled Congress will move to restrict firearm ownership, despite the insistence of campaign aides that the president-elect supports gun rights and considers the issue a low priority. http://edition.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/11/11/obama.gun.sales/index.html?iref=mpstoryview#

It's more the exports of guns that we need to focus on probably. Some cultures handle guns overall just a whole lot better than others, i.e. the motivational pattern to draw and fire on people differs. http://www.fas.org/programs/ssp/asmp/index.html http://hei.unige.ch/sas/files/portal/issueareas/victims/conflict.html
