God Bless America. The FBI has recorded that background checks for firearm purchases last month surged to 7.8 million, up 136%YoY. The highest number recorded in 20 years.
A survey done by the National Shooting Sports Foundation found dealers project around 40% of sales are to first-time buyers, an increase from the average.
Does this surge suggest voting intentions? Surely those buying guns won’t be supporting a party that backs defunding the police and has leaders like Speaker Pelosi who flippantly dismissed the destruction of public and private property by rioters as “they will do what they do!”
