70. You're right. I stand corrected

Sales peaked in '93, declined for a couple of years, then were flat from about '96 to about '04/'05. Then the began to ramp up, especially when pro-AWB Obama took office, and soared after the Sandy Hook massacre and more gun-controls laws loomed on the horizon.

So if your goal was to decrease sales of new guns, you didn't do so hot.

But, for that same time period, sales per capita were running about 25% above 1986 levels.

Also, during the Obama era, when sales soared as high at 225% above 1986 levels, the murder rate continued to decrease. I think that was what I meant to say originally.
