Happening In The U.S: In the wake of yesterdays tragic events, gun and ammunition manufacturers across the United States have seen a rise of up to 3% in their shares. Economists attribute this to fears/anticipation of tighter gun control. Disturbingly these stock surges appear to be on trend, as shares rose following the tragedies of 9/11 and the San Bernardino attack. (BBC)
