Democrats Gun sales surge amidst gun Control insanity
Gun sales surge among gun-owning households amid increasing BLM violence and riots in many of America’s largest cities, while Joe Biden and the Democrats call for new gun control laws.
 
A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows that gun sales have surged, as 35% of US adults who live in gun-owning households increased the number of firearms they own over the past year.
 

The Rasmussen poll was conducted on May 3-4 and released on Friday. The gun-buying spree also coincided with a spate of mass shootings, which President Joe Biden and other Democrat politicians have cited as justification for enacting new restrictions on firearms.

Rasmussen’s Gun Sales Surge corroborated by FBI.

The bureau reported that a record-high 39.7 million background checks were carried out last year for US gun purchases, up 40% from 2019’s total.

Through the first four months of 2021, nearly 16 million background checks were performed, which was up 31% from 2020’s blistering pace and exceeded full-year totals from as recently as 2010.

The buying binge is so strong that ammunition is in short supply. Nearly half of the Rasmussen poll respondents said they had difficulty finding ammo for their weapons.

Shortages are reportedly so severe in some areas that police departments are struggling to find enough rounds for the training and certification of their officers.

Even before the recent surge in buying, Americans accounted for about 46% of the 857 million guns owned by civilians worldwide, despite making up just 4.2% of the global population, according to the 2017 Small Arms Survey.

The US then had about 1.2 guns for every man, woman, and child living in the country.

A Gallup survey in 2020 found that 44% of US households and 32% of US individuals owned guns.

US gun purchases accelerated in the second half of 2020, after Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters torched and looted businesses and public property. 

“The police cannot even protect their own buildings from being burned to the ground,” one Twitter commenter said of the Rasmussen poll. “They sure can’t protect your home.”
