Brian Sipe knew things would be busy, but the past year’s growth in production and sales was unexpected for the owner of the Montana Rifleman, a company that manufactures firearms barrels and actions in a building off Montana 35 east of Kalispell.

The company finished last year producing a total of 143,000 rifle and pistol barrels. In August 2011, Sipe figured the company’s could reach a production capacity of 300,000 barrels annually.

            Maybe they should call this newspaper the "Daily Gun Story." Is there nothing else to write about? Also, why the repetitive stories about the same companies? The stories go like this: Lots of people are buying guns because they are afraid of the president. Also, they buy lots of bullets, too. It is good for the economy.

            I was in rifle club, don't get me wrong. I respect hunting, etc. I even think it would be cool to own such a weapon and have friends that do.

            It's just that I'm not impressed with people who are really trying to make enough guns to ship to insurrections around the world and make a huge amount of money in the process. One of these guys even told me that a goal of theirs' is to "procure military contracts." This is not for hobbyists who enjoy firepower. There aren't enough paranoid people in this country to make this industry a large money-making venture. This is about making weapons that kill people, be they bad people or innocent ones.
