2020 Was a Record Year for Gun Sales

Americans will not abandon their gun rights.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported that 2020 was a record-setting year with over 21 million background checks conducted on gun sales. 

In a press release that was published on January 4, 2020, Mark Oliva, the director of public affairs, stated: 

“This record year surpassed 2019’s totals by 60 percent and the previous record of 2016 by 34 percent. NSSF estimates that more than 8.4 million people legally purchased a firearm for the first time in 2020.

This occurred under the most challenging of circumstances. Law-abiding Americans demanded to exercise their right to lawfully purchase, keep and bear arms. Some governors, mayors and even Members of Congress actively stood in the way of that and didn’t relent until faced with court action. At the same time, workers in these firearm and ammunition factories, distributors, retailers and ranges made adjustments to keep their workforce safe and protected from infection while keeping pace with the demand of the American public. That’s a testament to the determination of the American worker that makes our freedoms possible.”

The overload of the National Instant Check System (NICS) shows how serious Americans are about defending themselves in times of unrest. 

Oliva recognizes that Americans will still be buying firearms in large quantities. 

“Retail shelves are still sparse, telling us there is still a strong demand and that elevated levels of firearm sales could continue for some time,” Oliva noted.

On top of 2020 being a record year for firearm sales, December 2020 turned out to be the busiest month in NICS history. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, 3,937,066 background checks were processed in December. According to estimates adjusted by the NSSF, roughly 1,906,916 firearms were sold in December. This represented a 22.7% increase compared to December 2019.

While there’s a lot to be anxious about, one thing remains clear: Americans still want to stay armed. The Left can deny this reality all they want, but any overzealous effort to regulate the right to bear arms will be met with fierce resistance.

The Right would be wise to recognize and rebuild their political forces at the state and local level by engaging in fights to pass Constitutional Carry and promote Second Amendment sanctuaries.

America First Florida Rep Anthony Sabatini Introduces Pro-Second Amendment Bills that Would Repeal Red Flag Laws and Make the State a 2A Sanctuary

Published

Anthony Sabatini has quickly established himself as the most Pro-Trump State House Representative in Florida.

And he’s pushing the envelope even further by introducing legislation that will make Florida a “second amendment sanctuary” and repeal the state’s current red flag law

Last week, Sabatini unveiled House Memorial 1135, which directs Congress to designate Florida as a Second Amendment sanctuary state.

“Florida is the nation’s beacon of Freedom—and no state or local official should administer any unconstitutional law,” Sabatini added.

The memorial alludes to the U.S. Constitution as well as the state’s constitution as far as the right to bear arms is concerned.

On February 2x, 2021, Sabatini made an announcement with regards to his filing of HB 6083, the bill which would repeal Florida’s unconstitutional red flag law. Under red flag laws, judges have the ability to confiscate firearms without due process.

“The Bill also repeals other irrational anti-#2A laws—including the law prohibiting adults 18-20 years of age from purchasing firearms,” Sabatini commented.

For those of us with short-term memory, Florida passed a red flag gun confiscation order in 2018 under the watch of a Republican-controlled state legislature. U.S. Senator Rick Scott was governor at the time and ended up signing the red flag bill, SB 7026, into law. He was sadly rewarded with higher office by voters that election cycle.

Thankfully, the Sunshine State can count on the likes of Sabatini to make things right. More legislators will likely need to copy his example in order to rid Florida of this gun control abomination.
