That’s a lot of new gun owners—and the breakdown is even cooler. It shatters the liberal myth about gun owners only being an exclusive club where only white men can participate. Again, the Left and their race-obsessed nonsense led to them having eggs on their face. It also showed yet again how liberals manufacture voter narratives where the data simply does not exist.
Gun sales soared in 2020 , with over 23 million firearms being sold. It was a 60 percent increase from 2019 and nearly nine million Americans became new gun owners. Breaking this trend down further, it was estimated that around 20 percent of Americans who bought guns in 2020 were first-time owners, and half were women (via The Hill ): Approximately one-fifth of Americans who purchased guns last year were first-time buyers, according to new preliminary data from Northeastern University and the Harvard Injury Control Research Center.
The data also showed increases in the overall number of gun buyers and the total number of gun owners in the U.S.
Of the first-time buyers recorded in 2020, half were women, a fifth were Black and a fifth were Hispanic, according to The New York Times, which reported on the new data.
Last year’s first-time buyers were less likely than usual to be male and white, the Times noted.
The newspaper did note, however, that first-time buyers accounted for approximately 20 percent of gun sales in 2019, signaling that the pandemic did not kick off the trend. So, this trend started prior to the COVID pandemic? Okay. That’s fine. Women, Blacks, and Hispanics wanted to start packing before the lockdowns is not necessarily a bad thing either way. It shows the changing face of gun ownership in America. This is a constitutional right afforded to all Americans. Period. It’s not a white person thing. It never has been. In fact, the trend with women participating in gun ownership and shooting sports has been documented for years. It’s already changed the industry. Women have been lining up to buy guns and concealed carry permits for quite some time, and this […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
