America saw 3.2 million new gun owners in the first half of 2021 as record sales continue

Sep 15th

Good news: The Second Amendment is still going strong.

According to a recent survey from the National Shootings Sports Foundation (NSSF), more than 3.2 million people bought their first gun in the first half of this year.

The survey also indicated that the 3.2 million figure makes up roughly a third of the firearms purchased this year; this is based on NSSF estimating a total of about 9.8 million background checks conducted for the sale of a firearm from January to June 2021.


Note that sales this summer have been strong as the record gun buying of 2020 has continued throughout this year.

"This survey shows that there is a continuing demand signal for firearms from the American public. 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. 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," said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF president and CEO.

This trend, along with the consistent sales of firearms, builds upon what started in 2020, a year that saw what NSSF estimates as more than 8.4 million people purchase a firearm for the first time.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden and the anti-gun lobbyist he tried to appoint to the ATF are likely trying to drown their sorrows caused by these rebellious Yankees and their love of freedom.

Amazingly, the 3.2 million new gun owners didn't immediately become domestic terrorists, although a survey I totally didn't just make up showed an increased sense of responsibility, liberty, and sacrifice that has spontaneously broken out across the land!
