I missed one of my top election proxies… End-of-month reporting from the FBI on background checks for new firearms purchases. Remember, this UNDERESTIMATES gun sales, as not all firearms-related transactions involve an FBI background check, and it obviously excludes outright illegal sales. (Given the number of Antifa brats with domestic violence charges that are toting firearms, I imagine this has been a rich year for illegal firearms sales too.)
For the month of August, the FBI conducted 3.1 million background checks for firearms. Firearm sales have been hovering around or above 3 million per month for the entire year. Through August, the FBI has conducted approximately 26 million background checks for firearms. That compares with 28 million gun purchases for the entire year of 2019. This year will not only set a record for gun sales, it will blow away the previous record (last year).
The firearms industry would like to thank the Democratic Party for the scamdemic lockdowns, pushing to strip police of funding, for 100+ days of riots, and for suggesting Beto would make a great gun czar. You’ve done an amazing job of helping them clear inventory like never before.
