With the 2020 presidential election heating up, Democrats are already boasting about all the ways their party will beat President Donald Trump.
But one thing Democrats can’t deny is that an uptick in first-time gun ownership is not a good sign for them. News from the National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates nearly 5 million people purchased their first firearm in the first half of 2020 alone, which will likely spell serious trouble for the anti-Second Amendment left.
The Connecticut-based firearms industry trade association used data from the FBI National Instant Background Check System to arrive at the estimate.
Those surveys found that NSSF retailer members tracked an 95 percent increase in gun sales and a 139 percent increase in sales of ammunition compared to the same period in 2019.
