  7. Why Gun Stocks Plunged in August

    https://www.fool.com/investing/2017/09/06/why-gun-stocks-plunged-in-august.aspx Without the threat of gun regulation, gun companies are finding it harder to sell guns. Sep 6, 2017 at 8:35AM Gun stocks dropped like a rock across the board in August. Sturm, Ruger & Company Inc (NYSE:RGR), American Outdoor Brands Corp (NASDAQ:AOBC), and Vista Outdoor Inc (NYSE:VSTO) all dropped double digits, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, as a wave of bad news hit the industry. The domestic gun industry is actually suffering from operating conditions that are too favorable, which sounds a little crazy on the surface. But when you dive into the numbers it's entirely predictable that gun stocks are having a terrible 2017. What happened in August The drop in gun stocks last month was largely due to confirmation that people aren't buying as many guns as they were a year ago. Sturm, Ruger & Company's sales fell 22% to $131.9 million in the second quarter of 2017 and net income fell 53% to $10.2 million. Vista Outdoor's fiscal first quarter sales for the quarter ended July 2, 2017, fell 9.8% to $568.7 million and net income dropped 42.8% to $16.7 million. American Outdoor reported a 3.6% increase in sales for the fiscal fourth quarter ended April 30, 2017, the most recent data available, but that included the acquisition of Taylor Brands, Crimson Trace, and UST Brands in the past year. The macro data reinforces the decline in sales as well. Purchases run through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System dropped from 2.2 million in July 2016 to 1.7 million in July 2017. There's little urgency to acquire a gun with President Trump in the White House and Republicans controlling Congress, so sales will naturally drop. The irony of gun stocks What's odd about gun companies is that the drop in sales in 2017 was easily predictable. There's typically a surge in gun sales when either a Democratic presidential candidate wins office or when there's a mass shooting. It's sad but true that the threat of restrictions is really what drives gun sales in the U.S. The fact that Republicans will control both the White House and Congress for the next 18 months and the executive branch until 2021 puts significantly less urgency on gun purchases. And with a favorable policy environment for the next few years, it's unlikely sales will spike soon. What to do with gun stocks now A decline in gun sales will certainly take a bite out of earnings as manufacturing and operating costs are spread over fewer sales. For now, gun makers aren't expecting the tough operating condition to result in net losses in the foreseeable future, indicated by guidance for the next few quarters. What investors will want to keep an eye on is the long-term sales trend. If revenue continues to drop double digits it will be harder and harder to stay profitable, even if the policy environment for gun makers appears to be favorable. It's ironic, but the worst thing that can happen to gun stocks is a government that's in favor of gun ownership, which investors are seeing very clearly in 2017. 10 stocks we like better than Sturm, Ruger & Company When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen. After all, the newsletter they have run for over a decade, Motley Fool Stock Advisor, has tripled the market.* David and Tom just revealed what they believe are the ten best stocks for investors to buy right now… and Sturm, Ruger & Company wasn't one of them!

  8. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/09/05/us-virgin-islands-governor-orders-seizure-citizens-weapons-nra-threatens-to-sue.html Published September 05, 2017 FoxNews.com The governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands has ordered its national guard to seize guns, ammunition and other weapons from its citizens as the territory prepares for Hurricane Irma to make landfall. Gov. Kenneth Mapp, an Independent, signed an executive order Tuesday instructing Adjutant General Deborah Howell “to take whatever actions she considers necessary” to maintain public order, The Times-Picayune reported. The order, obtained by The Daily Caller, states that Howell is “authorized and directed to seize arms, ammunition, explosives, incendiary material and any other property that may be required by the military forces for the performance of this emergency mission.” FEAR GRIPS FLORIDA THAT MONSTER HURRICANE IRMA COULD BE WORSE THAN HARVEY The National Rifle Association announced its “strong opposition” to Mapp’s order in a press release Tuesday. “People need the ability to protect themselves during times of natural disaster,” Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action said. “This dangerous order violates the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens and puts their lives at risk.” In 2005, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin signed a similar order allowing seizure of guns, assault rifles and other weapons, ahead of a forced evacuation from those still living in areas affected by Hurricane Katrina. The NRA filed a lawsuit after Katrina claiming New Orleans violated gun owners’ constitutional right to bear arms and left them “at the mercy of roving gangs, home invaders, and other criminals” after the hurricane. Congress later passed the 2006 Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act, which was meant to prohibit future confiscation of weapons during an emergency. HURRICANE IRMA'S STORM PATH: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW “When 911 is non-existent and law enforcement personnel are overwhelmed with search-and-rescue missions and other emergency duties, law-abiding American citizens must be able to protect their families and loved ones,” Cox continued. “The NRA is prepared to pursue legal action to halt Gov. Mapp's dangerous and unconstitutional order.”
