Interesting article. One thing that comes to my mind is that if increased consumer spending helps the economy, why make a statement like that? Obviously, the huge increase in firearms related sales have to be helping the big picture. I've spent thousands of dollars that I didn't have planned.
Anyhow, I hope he was truthful in his statement, but I'm not chancing it given his track record.
