Keep up the good work
While former President Barack Obama without a doubt should have gotten a “Best Salesman” award from the gun industry, the Democrats’ 2020 presidential hopefuls are doing even better.
While Obama’s gun control urges were perceived as real Second Amendment threats, the gaggle of presidential wannabes and their unabashed anti-gun stands pushed gun sales up in October by 10 percent, compared to last year. It was, by the way, the third straight month of increased sales.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting (SAAF) reports there were 1.1 million gun sales in October, compared with 1 million last October.
It is more than a little amazing what the Democrats apparently do not, or are unwilling, to see: The more they push for onerous gun control, the more guns are snapped up by the public. Is it possible the average American does not support their drive to further control guns? Clearly they are buying them because they want them, and they want them before the Left can block such purchases.
It should be noted gun sales dropped after President Donald Trump was elected because the public did not see him as a threat to gun rights. With Democrat presidential candidates spouting off about gun bans, even outright confiscation, the angst increases – and sales are on the rise.
Second Amendment proponents have a message for the candidates: Keep up the good work guys.
