The chart above shows the level of change in Firearm and Ammunition inventory levels seven days before, and seven days after the 2012 Presidential Election – plus Election Day itself in the center.

The trend for the week prior to the election showed little movement, indicating a market expectation of one outcome in the elections.  The trend after the election shows that the markets were mislead.

Inventories of new firearms and ammunition have fallen with a combined rate of 18.8% to 81.2% from Election Day levels.

Thanks to The Michael Bane Blog for posting my earlier post-election observations on reduced firearm availability.

The plunge continues …
