26. $13.26 billion industry in the US in 2012

I figure it always comes down to money, right? I'd be surprised if anyone got any serious momentum (not that there needs to be, of course) against video games. But I hear you that they'll try to use it as a diversion.

Anyway, I was curious about video game revenue vs. gun revenue

Regarding video games: "For the full year, 2012, sales were $13.26 billion, down from $16.998 billion."

"The estimated economic impact of the US firearms industry in 2012 is $31.8 billion, according to data from the National Shooting Sports Foundation."

THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY!!!!
