Liberals Are Practically Forcing Americans To Take Up Arms This Year
Cities across the nation are dealing with riots and protesters are demanding the police be defunded. In blue States, government officials are pandering to rioters and slashing the budget of police officers. This is leading to fewer boots on the ground when it comes to police and is leaving lawful Americans vulnerable. So Americans are doing what they have to do to ensure their families are safe as many have realized they can't solely count on the police. They are buying a weapon to defend their families and for many, it is their first gun.
"At the beginning of June, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) announced that more than 2.5 million people had become first-time gun owners in the first half of 2020.
January to June 1 of 2020, was “unlike any other year for firearm purchases — particularly by first-time buyers — as new NSSF research reveals millions of people chose to purchase their first gun during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jim Curcuruto, the shooting foundation’s director of research and market development, at the time.
NSSF data show a record number of gun transactions – 10.3 million – were processed in the country during that time period.
“First off,” Curcuruto wrote in a July 21 blog post, “approximately 90 percent of retailers reported an increase in firearm and ammunition sales during the first half of 2020 versus the first half of 2019. How big are those increases? Responding retailers noted that they are seeing a 95 percent increase in firearm sales and a 139 percent increase in ammunition sales over the same period in 2019.”
I bet libs are pissed about this development, that their defund the police riots are leading to Americans practicing their second amendment. But it shows the failure of leadership on the Dems part as they are now driving their constituents to gun stores. But Dems are unintentionally doing these Americans a favor as they will now be more self-reliant and know that they can defend their family from looters/home invaders. And they very well may need it after Dems replace police with social workers.
