Sales for ammunition are spiking in conjunction with the coronavirus epidemic, according to new reporting from Yahoo that analyzes interest in one of the internet’s leading ammo retails, ammo.com.
Ammo.com’s online traffic has spiked significantly in correlation with increased search results for Coronavirus, according to Google search analytics.
A marketing manager for Ammo.com, Alex Horsman, confirmed that he did believe global concerns surrounding the coronavirus were fueling the consumer demands for ammunition supplies.
“We know certain things impact ammo sales, mostly political events or economic instability when people feel their rights may end up infringed, but this is our first experience with a virus leading to such a boost in sales. But it makes sense. A lot of our customers like to be prepared. And for many of them, it’s not just facemasks and TheraFlu. It’s knowing that no matter what happens, they can keep themselves and their families safe.”
Common rifle cartridges such 7.62×39 and .223 Remington- the two most common rifle cartridges, for AR and AK-style rifles respectively- were the second and third most increased ammunition variant sold by Ammo.com. .223 sales increased by 194%, and 7.62×39 by 114%.
People from states such as North Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Texas fueled the greatest increase in demand for ammunition.
The Chinese government has doubled down on its tendency towards authoritarianism in light of the virus’ all-encompassing impact on the city of Wuhan. Citizens monitoring Chinese law enforcement have been forcibly abducted and quarantined by the government even in cases where it appears doubtful that they even have the disease.
It’s not exactly obvious what American gun owners are expecting as a result of the coronavirus, but many feel inclined to stock up on vital supplies essential to self-defense.
National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense
They’re stepping up to the plate.
The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”
NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.
“We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”
According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”
“The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”
The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.
NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.
Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
