In a move that shocked many gun rights supporters, the National Rifle Association came out vocally in support of Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs), calling them “Risk Protection Orders.”
While their use of the term “Risk Protection Orders” may not seem significant to some, it shows just how carefully the NRA had to be in making the decision to support this measure. “Gun Violence Restraining Order” has been the term popularized by anti-gun groups like the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety, which effectively do the same thing that the NRA is pushing.
GRVOs operate similarly to a temporary restraining order, which allows a court to issue a protective order in situations where a person or business needs to be temporarily protected by an individual. A GRVO would use much of the same criteria used to gain these protective orders to allow individuals to petition a court to remove guns from an individual they believe is a threat to themselves or others.
The “Risk Protection Orders” promoted by the NRA in a recent ad are nothing more than GRVOs with a different name. Even David French, the NRA’s number one cheerleader on this issue, acknowledges that fact in an article he published to the National Review.
Anti-gun groups like Everytown for Gun Safety have spent tens of millions of dollars promoting this measure, enacting legislation codifying them into law in 7 states. These states are actively using these measures to take guns from individuals.
The major issue with a GRVO is that it does not give the individual having their guns taken away the ability to challenge the ruling until the guns have already been taken away. A rogue anti-gun judge hearing a case from a vindictive family member is all it could take to have someone’s guns confiscated. A vital part of due process is having the ability to defend yourself. GRVOs remove your ability to do that.

2.5 Million Guns Sold In March, SMASHING Previous US Record For Gun Buys
Americans want their guns.
Federal firearms licensees sold more than 2.5 million guns to the American public in March 2020, easily smashing the previously held record for the most gun sales in an individual month by more than a million transactions.
The gun sale data has been gauged by Small Arms Analytics, and the estimation of a total of 2,583,238 sales has been pulled from raw FBI National Instant Criminal Background Checks System data. It’s actually possible that the total figure of guns sales is a bit higher, considering gun sales between private individuals are not subject to the NICS system.
Not only does the figure of 2.5 million gun sales surpass the previous monthly record holder from March 2019, but it does so in a resounding fashion. 1.4 million guns were sold in that month, meaning that March 2020 surpassed the record by approximately 1.1 million sales.
A breakdown of the sales between long guns and handguns was provided by Small Arms Analytics. Handgun sales in particular spiked exponentially, easily surpassing previous quarterly highs in gun sales that preceded major American elections.
An alternate system of quantifying gun purchases utilized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation verified that March was in fact a record-setting month for gun sales.
The surge in gun and ammunition sales in the wake of the nascent Chinese coronavirus epidemic is well documented at this point, with gun and ammunition retailers reporting selling out their entire inventories and still not coming close to meeting demand.
As Americans arm themselves in unprecedented record-setting numbers, some major American municipalities and states have taken it upon themselves to wholly shut down the lawful firearms commerce and manufacturing industries. However, several of them have been stopped cold in their tracks, in light of federal guidelines from the Trump administration that recognizes businesses serving the Second Amendment community as “essential.”
New Jersey and Los Angeles County are among the two biggest governmental entities forced to walk back arbitrary commands that gun stores close in light of the guidelines.
Dubious state of emergency declarations that try to implement backdoor gun control in a hour where more Americans are seeking to lawfully arm themselves than ever before simply aren’t going to work, judging from historical amounts of armaments freedom-loving patriots have secured in the last month alone.
