The Washington Post reports, “Gun control debates create gun production booms, government data show.”
The data also shows episodic spikes of production and firearm sales when there’s the possibility of new federal gun-control policies. The two biggest years for gun production in recent history — 2013 and 2016 — came during intense debates about whether Democrats would be able to curb access to firearms such as the AR-15.
“Gun lovers have been convinced that their right to buy guns in general, or particular types of guns, would be taken away by the politicians and they better hurry up and get whatever guns they have considered obtaining,” said Philip Cook, professor emeritus of public policy studies at Duke University.

Fair warning. The irony is strong with this one.
Since the show, itself, portrays violence in all it's varied forms as integral to the plot, perhaps instead of capitalizing on violence to gain and pander to an audience, you should change to format to a cooking show. Maybe "Blackened Fish – Cajun style" would work. Do ya think?
