Obama has finally created thousands of new jobs... in the guns and ammo industry
President Obama's regulatory and fiscal policies have been blamed for keeping unemployment high, but one industry where there has been dramatic jobs growth is not likely one the president is happy about - firearms.

"Guns and ammo are selling briskly these days, and that means weapons makers are hiring. Some manufacturers are scrambling to find enough workers," CNNMoney reports.

In one example, Mike Weddle - chief of maintenance at Dynamic Research Technologies, an ammunition manufacturer in Albany, Mo. - said he is adding 10 new workers to his present staff of 35. The firm's machine operators earn between $10 and $17 an hour, a pretty good wage in a region where it is hard to find work and the cost of living is fairly low.

Right now, DRT makes 80,000 rounds per shift. The plant is operating two shifts per day. But that's not enough to meet the surging demand, which has been triggered in large part by renewed gun control efforts on the federal level (and in some states, like New York and Colorado). So, Weddle says he will add a third shift and is planning to build an additional manufacturing building.

"Demand picked up a year ago -- it quadrupled," he told CNNMoney. "It just went crazy."

One of the hardest calibers to keep in stock, he says, is .223, which is primarily used in semi-automatic rifles.

Shortages spreading - and worsening
