Five MILLION Americans Bought a Gun for the First Time This Year

As Democrats continue to beat the drum to put an end to the Second Amendment, stats show that nearly five MILLION Americans bought a gun for the first time in their lives this year.

On one hand, the Democrats are telling us that they want to end our right to bear arms. And yet, they are also telling us they want to take away the police who are supposed to protect us, want to allow dangerous illegals to wander freely across the border without restrictions, and want us all to sit back and cheer on the Black Lives Matter terrorists who are burning our cities to the ground.

Oh, but don’t try to protect yourself, your family, or your property. If you do that you are raaaaacist.

According to the most recent numbers of gun buyers, forty percent of 12.1 million National Instant Criminal Background Check queries this year are individuals who had never bought a gun before. That is around 4,800,000 new gun owners, according to the analysis by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

NSSF senior vice president and general counsel Larry Keane pointed out that the surge in sales is fueled by new gun buyers, according to a statement sent to Breitbart News.

“This is a tectonic shift in the firearm and ammunition industry marketplace and complete transformation of today’s gun-owning community. These first-time buyers represent a group of people who, until now, were agnostic regarding firearm ownership,” Keane wrote.

“That’s rapidly changing, and these Americans are taking hold of their God-given right to keep and bear arms and protect themselves and their loved ones,” Keane added.

Breitbart added:

On August 24, 2020, NSSF contrasted the number of National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks from January 1, 2020, through July, 2020, with the number of checks from January 1, 2019, through July 2019. After adjusting for checks that were tied to concealed carry permits or other ends, other than sales, they ascertained that the number of checks for sales was 12.1 million.

Undoubtedly, worries over riots, Black Lives Matter terrorism, and coronovirus unrest are driving the surge. But many minorities are also being goaded into buying guns over the fears being instilled in them by racbaiters in the Black Lives Matter movement.

With this surge in new gun ownership, one might think gun control is a dying idea.
