After the most recent mass shooting, pistol stocks follow a familiar pattern

After the most recent mass shooting, pistol stocks follow a familiar pattern ...

You can keep an eye on the reaction as well.

The headlines are clear, guns are being used, and legislation continues to wreak havoc on the public sector.

The pattern is evident in anyone who is looking for it, and there are a variety of ideas to choose from.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, this year there have been 202 mass shootings in the United States, killings with four or more other victims than the gunman.

The attack on Twitch was actually repeated over the weekend. A gunman opened fire at a grocery store in a predominantly black area in Buffalo, New York. The perpetrator killed 10 people and wounding three others. The 18-year-old suspect also livestreamed the attack.

President Joe Biden has announced plans to travel to Buffalo on May 17 to discuss the shooting. Despite the President''s response, market investors have already placed their wagers.

Sturm Ruger, Smith & Wesson Make Gains

Wall Street follows a pattern that is as effective as the one described above.

Stocks on gun manufacturers are usually rising following mass shootings, and Monday''s session after the Buffalo shooting has been no different.

Shares of Sturm, Ruger, and Co (RGR) - Get Sturm, Ruger, Inc. Reportwere up about 1% at last check, while fellow gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson Brands (SWBI) - Get Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc. Reportwas up 2.4 percent at last check, reducing some of the gains from earlier in the session when it was 4,0.

TheSame pattern took place following weekend mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio in 2019. The same pattern occurred after 17 people, mostly students, were killed at a high school in Parkland Florida in 2018. The same thing occurred following the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, where 58 people were killed in the deadliest mass shooting ever on US soil.

Gun stocks are rising as the President urges for gun reform, although it may sound counterintuitive.

Markets anticipate a gun run following a mass shooting, as regulation calls become more common in the aftermath of some tragedies.

Regardless of which political party is in charge, those statements are either completely unheeded with Republicans in office or with malicious lip service if Democrats are in power.

Presidential Effect on Gun Stocks

President Joe Biden pled for a gun prohibition last March. This declaration came just a day after ten individuals were slaughtered at a supermarket in Colorado.

Biden urged the Senate to "urgently pass the two House-passed measures that narrowed gaps in the background-check system."

Both Democrats and Republicans supported Biden on these two bills, according to the White House. Gun violence "shouldn''t be a political issue. This is a national issue."

These legislation did not get very far in the legislative process. And the dangers of regulation have only benefitted gun companies.

Sturm and Ruger''s stock is up for two all-time highs under the Biden administration. Despite the decline over the last 12 months, the stock is still ahead of where it was during the previous administration.

It remains to be seen how long this gun bounce lasts. Biden''s speech on Tuesday will certainly play a role in Wall Street''s future.
