The firearms industry is unlike the automobile industry or other large conglomerates where you have a handful of U.S.-based multi-national manufacturers competing with even larger foreign firms. The hardworking men and women who comprise the majority of our firearms industry are getting by. They’re not getting rich.
Most gun dealers operate small mom-and-pop shops, with maybe one or two employees if they’re lucky. Their margins are low. Money is tight. Each month is a struggle to pay bills. These are the people Biden wants to put out of business. These are the folks he considers “rogue gun dealers” and wants to strangle with overregulation and his new zero-tolerance policy, which is absurd.
Whether it will be by further weaponizing of the ATF, nonstop frivolous lawsuits or by banning individual products like ARs, standard-capacity magazines and now even 9mm pistols, the Biden-Harris administration will not stop until it becomes nearly impossible for a law-abiding American to buy a gun in this country.
I say it’s time to push back.
The more Joe and Kamala try to bankrupt our industry friends, the more we need to support them. So, buy a gun– more than one if you can afford it. Buy ammunition too, and don’t stockpile it in a closet. Shoot it up and buy more.
In April, according to the FBI’s NICS firearm checks, more than 2.6 million Americans purchased a gun of some kind. In other words, that’s more than 2.6 million Americans who told Joe exactly where they can stick his infringements. That, friends, is a good start.
There are other ways to support the industry. Join pro-gun organizations – national, state and local ones. Don’t forget about the wildlife conservation groups. The ducks, deer and pheasant crowds have always helped to preserve and protect the Second Amendment. Join your local shooting clubs or gun ranges. They need the support and we all need to train more. They’re also great places to pick up the latest anti-gun intel. Take some training classes. Learn a new shooting discipline. Introduce a new shooter to the sport. We need to support every layer of our gun industry.
If you haven’t done so already, get a concealed-carry permit. Politicians track these numbers regularly, as they do NICS checks. The more documented gun owners we can show on paper the more reluctant the pols will be to support Joe’s crazy shenanigans.
Joe and Kamala have a literal army of their side, and a sycophantic lapdog media who are more than willing to overlook blatant civil rights violations or any other excess. We have each other. That’s it, so if we don’t help our industry friends now, when they really need it, no one else will, and I’ll be damned if I let Joe and Kamala have a win.
