Firearms Retailers See Flurry Of Gun Sales

Published

on

Gun sales are picking up in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida last week.

After hitting what retailers called the “Trump Slump” referring to a slowdown of firearms purchases after the Republican president was elected, Americans are flocking to sellers to buy their first gun or add to their collection.

This can only be in response to the rising momentum for gun control, which has been pushed by President Trump himself.

For example, Bud’s Gun Shop, a huge online retailer based in Lexington, Kentucky, posted this message on its website today:

“An unexpected large increase in demand has caused delays throughout our supply chain,” says a banner on the homepage of its website. “Please expect longer than normal processing and shipping times on all orders. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

Gun rhetoric is heating up, too.

Robert Norman, a contributor at The Federalist wrote an op-ed called “I Bought My First Gun Because of the CNN Town Hall.”

“Whenever the left talks about gun control, significant numbers of people who see value in the Second Amendment run out and purchase a gun. Normally, that wouldn’t include me. But this time was different,” Norman said.

Even some Twitter users are reporting purchasing firearms due to the threat of gun control:

Gun sales typically spike after mass shootings, which seems to be the case right now.

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.
