Almost 5 Million Americans Have Become First-Time Gun Owners in 2020

Record setting armaments.

Almost five million Americans have acquired a gun for the first time in 2020, crushing every record for firearm purchases in American history by a hefty margin.

Forty percent of the 12.1 million National Instant Criminal Background Check queries this year analyzed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation involved individuals who had never acquired a gun before, adding up to around 4,800,000 new gun owners.

NSSF senior vice president of general counsel Larry Keane recognized that the surge in firearm sales is being fueled by new gun owners in an unprecedented fashion in a statement provided 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.

New gun sales had already been soaring to astronomical proportions as the coronavirus pandemic began in earnest in the United States, and the nationwide race riots appear to have kicked the already ongoing panic buy into overdrive. New gun sales are occurring disproportionately in traditionally blue states such as California and New Jersey, where many residents hadn’t even so much as thought of the idea of getting a gun before the most unstable year in recent American history.

In almost every month this year, gun sales have outpaced what the NSSF gauged in 2019 by almost 100%, meaning more than double the guns will be sold in 2020 than were sold last year. Firearms and especially ammunition manufacturers have been unable to meet existing demand, resulting in spiking prices and unavailable cartridges of ammunition to consumers.

If there’s one way to remember 2020 in a good light(aside from the prospect of a Donald Trump reelection victory in the November election), it’ll be as the year that gun control finally died.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
