The FBI couldn’t believe the numbers.
After all the data finally came in, last year (2011) proved to be a record-breaker with more than 16.3 million gun sales, a giant leap of 2 million over the year before (2010).
Sixteen million. Now, that’s a lot of guns.
Why the surge? Some said it was politics. They said the fear of reelection of the current administration will bring private gun ownership under renewed attack. Others laughed that away, pointing to recent Supreme Court decisions supporting second amendment rights as an individual right. But there is no denying it—over the past 18 months, sales of gun and ammunition surged so high there were shortages of both in several parts of the country.
Regardless of the reasons for the rising interest, millions of new gun owners in America need a secure place to store and protect their purchases. And that’s where Liberty Safe saves the day.
Sales of Liberty safes have also been surging over the past two years. Today we’re manufacturing almost 300 safes a day, and we just invested in a multi-million dollar state-of-the-art facility to do even more. Why? Because we delight in serving our customers.
