January Had Record-Breaking Sales for Firearms

Good luck trying to pass gun control.



Don’t expect Americans to stop buying guns anytime soon. According to Dean Weingarten of AmmoLand, a record number of National Instant Background Check System (NICS) were conducted in January. This represents the highest number of checks conducted in one month since the system was set up in 1998. The second highest month was December 2020, which had 3,937,068 checks.

Last year’s BLM unrest and the reality of an anti-gun Democrat trifecta at the federal level has motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. In addition, soft-on-crime policies like those being proposed in cities such as Los Angeles is making people recognize the importance of arming themselves.

Despite the constant anti-gun bias in schools, media, and general culture, regular Americans do not fall for anti-gun disinformation. Their purchasing behavior says it all. Take this trend in mind, nationalists would be well-served by having candidates run on strong pro-Second Amendment platforms and getting involved in popular fights such as Constitutional Carry.

The Second Amendment is alive and well in 2021, and nationalists would be wise to use it as a way to galvanize voters and attack the political establishment.

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.
