Gun Sales Continue to Soar across America, on Track to Smash Another Record
As violent crimes skyrockets in Joe Biden's America, gun sales explode
Gun sales are continuing to soar across America as violent crime spirals out of control in Democrat-run cities across the United States under Joe Biden.
This year, sales of firearms have continued to rise, with 2021 well on track to smash another record.
Sales during the month of July were the second-highest ever for the month.
The totals for last month come in at a staggering 1.3 million to 1.4 million.
According to data from an analysis of FBI background checks, the number takes the total gun sales for this year up to 11 million.
Mark Oliva of the industry trade group National Shooting Sports Foundation says the numbers show Americans have a "strong appetite" for exercising their Second Amendment rights amid the current climate.
"That’s a strong demand signal from the American public that there is steady and strong appetite for continued firearm sales,” Oliva said.
"Summer is typically a part of the year when firearm sales will slow, but July’s figures defy that trend.
"Americans are still buying guns and they’re buying them in numbers higher than previous years and at a pace that would have been unpredictable two or three years ago,” he continued.
"To date, more than 11 million background checks have been completed for the sale of a gun."
Accoridng to the Washington Examiner, Jurgen Brauer, the chief economist at Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting, said “even though the July year-over-year headline number fell drastically, estimated unit sales of nearly 1.4 million in July 2021 increased by over 500,000 units when compared to the more ‘normal’ July 2019 data.
"Indeed, apart from last year’s extraordinary July number, the July 2021 number is the highest on record.”
The FBI background check numbers were actually the lowest of the year, at 2,882,672.
They include checks for security clearances, concealed carry permits, and gun sales.
Oliva, the NSSF director of public affairs, said beating last year may be difficult.
At this point, sales had topped 13 million.
But for comparison, he added, sales were about 12.1 million.
Data shows that sales back in 2019 were 13.2 million for an entire year.
We’re eight months into 2021 and have already hit 11 million.
That’s quite a jump up.
