With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Firearm Store Sales As Biden Announces Restrictions, Including On ‘Ghost Guns’ According to a new industry survey, millions of Americans have become first-time gun owners during the first half of 2021, continuing an upward trend in new gun ownership.
In the study , put out by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), an estimated 3.2 million Americans reported purchasing their first firearm. The NSSF, the firearm industry trade association, reported that nearly half of the new gun owners were under the age of 40.
The survey was sent out to gun retailers who were members of NSSF. High percentages of retailers also said that low inventory for both guns and ammunition hurt their total sales.
“This survey shows that there is a continuing demand signal for firearms from the American public,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and CEO in a statement. “We witnessed each month background check figures associated with a gun sale that are second only to those we saw in last year’s record-breaking totals.”
The study noted that of the 9.8 million background checks conducted for gun sales, respondents said that it was the first time purchasing a gun for about one third of their customers.
Bartozzi added, “These survey results show not only is there a strong and healthy appetite from first-time gun buyers but that there is still room to grow. We are encouraged by the sustained interest in lawful and responsible gun ownership as well as by the manufacturing base which has been challenged to meet this remarkable demand.”
Many of the retailers also said that they noticed an increase in the amount of African American, Asian American, and Hispanic Americans purchasing firearms.
Some analysts say that the significant number of new gun owners could have political ramifications in debates about gun control laws.
“The survey findings suggest that increased demand among first-time buyers has continued following last year’s record-breaking estimates ,” wrote Jake Fogleman at the Reload, “The continuation of this trend could have notable political effects when public support for new gun laws has started to decline .”“Surveys underestimate the absolute level of gun ownership, mainly because gun […]
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.
