I wouldn't worry too much about the increasing sale in firearms. The majority of people who are contributing to the increase are just people who are worried about the government cracking down on the 2nd Amendment.
Thats obviously a pretty big part of it, we are experiencing kind of a "perfect storm" if you will this year. Firearm sales spike every year around spring and through the summer. The reason for the MUCH bigger spike than usual is due to the three main parts of the "perfect storm" coming together. You have the 2012 doomsday people. On top of that its an election year, with an extremely anti-gun adminitration possibly getting a second term in office. On top of that, you have an early spring this year, so the spring/summer spike started a couple months earlier than usual this year.
