PA Ranked No. 31 For Gun Industry Importance–From the LVTP

Share

 

From The Lehigh Valley Project 9/12 Tea Party –Second Amendment Committee

Guns generated nearly $7.4 billion in state and federal taxes last year and more than $51 billion for the economy nationwide, according to a WalletHub study quoted in a lancasteronline.com article.

The study considered the economic impact of gun sales, and ranked the states that are most reliant on the gun industry.

Pennsylvania came in at No. 31 out of 51 (the list included the District of Columbia).

Rankings were based on: Gun prevalence; Gun politics, which referred to contributions to politicians from both gun confiscation and gun rights groups; Firearms industry, including jobs and strictness of gun laws.

For Pennsylvania, the study found that:

  • The average wages and benefits in the firearms industry in Pennsylvania $50,0520.
  • Pennsylvania has a 27 percent gun ownership rate.
  • There are 89.46 gun sales for every 1,000 Pennsylvania residents.
  • The bad news is that $7.82 is donated per every 100,000 Pennsylvania residents to members of congress in the interest of gun confiscation.
  • But the good news is that $2,966 is donated per every 100,000 Pennsylvania residents to members of congress in the interest of gun rights.
  • Pennsylvania was ranked 36th for gun prevalence, 23rd for gun politics and 34th for its firearms industry.
  • Alaska came in first place in terms of gun industry dependence, and Rhode Island came in last.
