With deep concern, read the below from The American Spectator.
And if you live in a large, blue state city and have not already made plans to exit, understand that the clock is ticking on you and your family, LOUDLY.
The American Spectators warns Americans: Firearm background checks hit an all-time high in June in response to the Black Lives Matter protests and riots, beating out the March spike caused by pandemic fears.
A record high of 3.9 million background checks were completed by the FBI in June, a 136 percent increase from last year and the highest since the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NCIS) was launched in 1998. This spike came just months after March hit the then-record high of 3.7 million checks.
Justin Anderson, the marketing director of America’s largest gun shop, Hyatt Guns, told the Washington Examiner,.
“I’ve been in this business going on 14 years, and I have never seen this much demand. There are shortages of nearly every single defensive firearm currently manufactured.”
“Civil unrest has taken hold across the nation.
As a result, we are seeing a massive spike in business, especially AR-15s, magazines, and ammunition,” Anderson said. “The time to just ‘think’ about buying a gun is over.
It’s time to get off of the fence and make sure you have the means to protect yourself and your family.”
In response to the gun sales surge in March due to pandemic fears, National Rifle Association (NRA) spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said, “People are worried with law enforcement stretched to the maximum, now responding to only selected calls…. They realize that when bad things happen, it’s going to be up to them to be able to defend themselves and their families.”
The surge in firearm sales across the nation amid the ongoing lawlessness indicates that during this time of unrest and uncertainty, Americans plan to protect themselves.
Get your guns and your training–now. I own an AK-47, an AR-15, and a dozen AR-7s. And check out my Smith & Wesson revolvers home defense team. Even moms should have guns explains Dana Loesch, who also reminds Americans what the Second Amendment is for here. Perhaps the Army’s new handgun or an AR-15 is right for you.
