While their constituents were becoming concerned about how they would defend their families, the Biden-Harris administration offered nothing but tired, old talking points spoon-fed directly to them by the anti-gun industry. It didn’t work. Many Americans wanted easier access to firearms, not more restrictions. Biden, or whoever is actually calling the shots behind the scenes in the White House, completely misread the room.
The gun banners are just now realizing that no one is listening. For many people, the skewed data from debunked sources that the anti-gun talking heads have been peddling for decades only reinforced their desire to buy a gun. The more dire the warnings from the gun banners, the more guns were sold. It’s something Shannon, Gabby and Mike have yet to fully grasp.
More than 36 million Americans blew a big fat raspberry at Biden and his gun-banning squad, according to NICS background checks, and that only includes the first 11 months of 2021. It does not include private firearm sales, which are still legal in free states.
That’s more than 74 background checks per minute – a rate the market is still struggling to counterbalance.
To be clear, gun sales have skyrocketed. Ammunition sales have skyrocketed. Membership in gun-rights groups has skyrocketed. Demand for firearm instruction has outpaced the instructor pool, and support for anti-gun groups has plummeted, as expected.
Public opinion is shifting, the polls are showing, as more and more Americans realize the utility a firearm can offer. Politicians are discovering that an anti-gun stance will cost them votes. The anti-gun groups are growing desperate. The more they’re ignored, the louder and more shrill they become.
This is, however, not the time to celebrate. We are only one executive order away from yet another infringement. Our right to keep and bear arms requires eternal vigilance.
Remain vigilant, friends.
