Shall Not Be Infringed: FBI Reports that Record Numbers of Americans Bought Firearms in March

Published

Are record numbers of Americans buying firearms?

In the FBI’s “NICS Firearm Checks: Month/Year”, which recorded the number of firearms background checks conducted via NICS from November 1998 to March 31, 2020, 3,740,688 firearms went through the National Instant Background Check system in March 2020.

Twitter user Zak Slaybak commentedAlmost 1% of the US population bought their first gun last month:https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/nics_firearm_checks_-_month_year.pdf/view.”

It should be noted that these figures do not represent the total number of firearms sold, but rather the number of transactions that went through the NICS system.

Despite media misconceptions about background check being a well-established part of gun control policy, the NICS system has only been in place since 1998.

Many no compromise gun organizations argue it’s a first step towards establishing a national gun database.

Nevertheless, gun controllers have had to break a sweat to pass gun control.

On top of that, Americans still have strong pro-gun instincts when it comes to their views on self-defense and will buy firearms even when there are barriers to entry.

In a time when many cities and state government are conducting anarcho-tyrannical social experiments by letting out inmates with established criminal records, Americans are getting strapped.

Police cannot be relied upon, so citizens have to take matters into their hands when it comes to providing their own defense.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
