Thiel has been one of Trump’s most vocal supporters and a strong opponent of growing tech censorship. He made waves when he spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention voicing his support for Trump.

Coulter has been a Trump supporter and has held him accountable for not fully carrying out his America First agenda on immigration. Nevertheless, she remains committed to backing candidates like Kobach who espouse strong immigration reforms.

Her book Adios America had a major impact in bringing immigration into mainstream political discussion and highlights the potential consequences of not controlling mass migration. Many of these social effects of mass migration are already being felt in some countries across the pond.

For those who support an America First immigration agenda, Kobach is as good as it gets for a viable candidate in the U.S. Senate.

Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued. 

According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued. 

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”

The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”

Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.

Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.

2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
