Well, you just keep pushing, big boy.

"Obama Says He Hasn't Given Up On Gun Control."
"To go after illegal drug runners"? Huh?
So, apart from not knowing what he's talking about, there is this: "Obama gun control push backfires as industry sees unprecedented surge."
The American firearms industry is as healthy as ever, seeing an unprecedented surge that has sent production of guns soaring to more than 10.8 million manufactured in 2013 alone — double the total of just three years earlier.
The 2013 surge — the latest for which the government has figures — came in the first full year after the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, signaling that the push for stricter gun controls, strongly backed by President Obama, did little to chill the industry despite the passage of stricter laws in states such as New York, Maryland, Connecticut and California. . .
The biggest change in production has come under President Obama. From 2001 to 2007, gun production held steady at between 3 million and 4 million units a year. It topped 4 million in 2008 but shot to 5.6 million in 2009, held steady in 2010 and then spiked to 8.6 million guns in 2012 and a record 10.8 million in 2013, according to ATF data.

It even gets better than that. From 2000 to 2013 there has been a 12.3% increase in the total population. If we just stick with 2010-2013 numbers there has been a 2.4% increase in total population. Since 2008 there has been an average of 27% increase in gun production per year (range 14% - 53%). That relates to a somewhere around a 10 for 1 "replacement" in growth. Indeed; every blade of grass. And, they know that.

Good, now if they could only double ammo production, too.
