Gun Sales Continue to EXPLODE As Nationwide Riots, Defund Police Movements Take Hold

Many realize the government won’t protect them.

2020 is shaping up as an all-time historic year for the firearms industry, as sales continue to surge, particularly among first time gun owners largely in response to left wing criminal riots and the nationwide “defund the police” movement.

Sales of firearms have already crushed 2019’s figures amidst the national uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, in some cases outnumbering the previous year’s sales estimate figures by percentage of 70% and 85%. The nationwide riot and anti-police movement seems to have fueled the already-astronomical demand for guns to an ever greater degree, according to reports from the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

The firearms industry research group, which compiled the statistics indicating a surge in gun sales during the pandemic, is reporting that retailers are describing a similar panic buy in response to the nationwide riots.

Mark Olivia of the NSSF explained the sudden demand for firearms “You’re seeing a reaction to people’s concerns about being able to provide safety for themselves and the ones that they love.” According to NSSF statistics, women make up 40% of first-time gun owners in 2020, with many of them hailing from left-wing states such as California.

2A Revolution: The Number of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in Ohio Almost Doubled In 2020

Gun grabbers take another L.

2020 was a monster year for gun sales. The unrest that ensued following the death of George Floyd motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. As cities became hellscapes filled with looting and random acts of violence, Americans learned real quick that the most reliable form of defense in such chaotic times is the right to bear arms. 

In addition, a substantial number of Americans took their gun ownership to the next level by applying for concealed carry licenses. Some figures from states such as Ohio suggest that 2020 was also a record year for the issuance of concealed carry licenses. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, data from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office uncovered that approximately 100,000 concealed carry licenses were issued to Ohioans in 2020. 

These figures are the most since 2016 and represent a 78% increase since 2019. More specifically, Ohio sheriffs issued 96,892 new concealed licenses, while 72.340 ohio gun owners completed license renewals. 2018 and 2019 were the top two years for renewed concealed firearms licenses. 

Ohio is currently ranked as the 23rd most pro-gun state in the nation according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most pro-gun states in America. Additionally, it’s ranked in a sub-par 34th place for states most friendly towards the concept of concealed carry. Ohio’s gun laws still need work, but the state is moving in the right direction after it recently passed a bill to strengthen its Stand Your Ground laws.

The Second Amendment remains a powerful issue and America First proponents would do well to embrace it during election season, when there are many angry gun owners ready to pounce on anti-Second Amendment incumbents and candidates.
