The Dickey Amendment, which was a part of the 1996 omnibus spending bill, barred the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from using research to advocate for gun control.
In a compromise move with Democrats, Republican leaders in Congress have agreed to weaken this restriction in the upcoming omnibus spending bill, and clarify that the CDC is allowed to research gun violence. This research will allow the government, especially during an anti-gun administration to create anti-gun propaganda.
The anti-gun left has been well known for fabricating facts in order to advance their anti-gun agenda. Following the shooting in Parkland Florida, Everytown for Gun Safety published a fabricated claim that 18 school shootings occurred at that point in 2018. Despite the claim being widely recognized as false, it made it all the way to the mouth of former President Barack Obama, who used it to advocate for gun control measures.
Anti-gun government officials have used government funding to advocate for gun control in the past. While serving as United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, Eric Holder, who later served as Obama’s attorney general called for the government schools to “brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
The omnibus bill is expected to make it to President Trump’s desk, but the President has signaled that he may veto the bill if it does not include adequate funding for a wall on the southern border.
Smith & Wesson Stepping Up Production to Meet Record Setting Astronomical Demand for New Guns
They’re stepping up production.
One of the biggest gun manufacturers in the United States is pledging to step up gun production as demand for new firearms soars to astronomical proportions. Smith & Wesson is pledging to boost their manufacturing to “maximum capacity” to meet unprecedented demand.
Gun sales in 2020 have crushed the records set in any previous year by a hefty margin, with the combination of the coronavirus and nationwide race riots aided and abetted by the Democratic Party serving to convince millions of Americans who have never owned guns before that they need to arm themselves.
“As we’ve seen before during these surge periods, these results reflect that despite our record numbers in market share growth, consumer demand for our products during the quarter still exceeded our internal manufacturing capacity levels,” said Mark Smith, CEO of the firearms company that was founded in 1852, in a call on Thursday. “We’re continuing to ramp up…. We’re going to go to maximum capacity.”
The company moved almost 600,000 guns from a period between May and July, smashing its records and depleting its existing inventory of newly manufactured guns.
“When we get into these surge environments like this, and as you can see from the [gun background check numbers] we’ve never seen one quite this high, the demand in the industry just outstrips the industry’s ability to supply,” Smith said. “And we’re no different. You can look at the inventory numbers from us and from some of the other firearms, retailers, and manufacturers, and I think we’re just out of inventory.”
Elevating existing manufacturing levels could prove critical to lowering surging prices for firearms, as retailers are unable to match demand. Ammunition continues to sell for record-setting prices, signaling a need for ammunition manufacturers to meet sky-high demand as well.
Smith and Wesson manufacturers a wide variety of popular civilian firearms, including AR-15 style rifles, a multitude of pistols and revolvers, and .22 rimfire rifles.
