Hillary Clinton did not hit a glass ceiling. She hit a ‘lead’ ceiling. America’s gun owners turned out to vote and made the Second Amendment great again.
At the local and state level, candidates that supported gun rights did very much better than those who supported gun control.

Guns Win Big on Election Day Most anti-gun candidate in modern history loses, NRA spending pays off
[While gun owners dodged the Clinton bullet in the election I don’t know how big of a contribution the gun owner rights issue made. Does anyone have hard numbers?
Email from David W. gives us Guns and the 2016 Election: How Candidates and Initiatives Fared in Every Key Race and How the NRA Paved the Way for President Trump but those don’t give us actual numbers. Actual numbers would probably have to come polling and after this election no one is going to be trusting poll numbers for several years. So, I don’t know the answer. Any ideas?—Joe]
