Gun Sales Surge 15%, Driven by Self-Protection and Pelosi-Schumer Demand for Limits

The leading indicator of gun sales jumped in August, driven in part by Americans seeking self-protection and deep concerns congressional Democrats are going to push through expanded gun control legislation.

The overall number of background checks recorded in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System surged 15.5%, said the National Shooting Sports Foundation. That figure includes background checks done for security, concealed carry permits, and gun sales and was the highest August number ever recorded.

The industry group said that August FBI background checks adjusted for sales surged 15.2% over August 2018. The adjusted August number was second only to August 2016 during the heated presidential election.

The new surge came in the wake of heightened pressure for gun control, sales bans on military-styled rifles, and limits on ammo following a spike in mass shootings.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday demanded Senate passage of a House-approved background check expansion. The White House, however, is focused on mental health drivers in shootings.

2. No gun control law that they are proposing will take the guns out of the hands of criminals.

Every gun control law they are proposing will take guns out of the hands of upstanding good citizens.

If history is to be repeated, so be it.

The spark that set off the Revolutionary War was when the British attempted to take guns, the modern firearms of that time, away from the colonists.
