The past 12 months have been bad for gun violence, but good for one gun-maker.

According to its latest earnings report, Smith-and-Wesson hit a record $588 million dollars in sales for the fiscal year that ended April 30th.

The gun industry as a whole saw a spike in demand from consumers fearing the gun control debate would make buying a gun more difficult.
