The link below is an article related to Ruger which sort of goes along with the current discussion. Ruger reports a 52% production increase and a $27 million investment in their facility in 2012. They also state that some of their production has been hurt by their inability to get high demand parts from suppliers.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
