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:
I'm 57 and bought my first gun because of this nonsense.

Gun sales typically spike after mass shootings, which seems to be the case right now.
Florida Sheriff Will Deputize Gun Owners if Rioters “Overwhelm” County
He’s not messing around.
A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.
Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.
“If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.
The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.
“If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”
Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
